Was out of form towards the end of last season and hasn't been seen out since January. No win in eight starts and in a competitive event, looks one of the bit players.
Not beaten too far on seasonal reappearance at Lingfield (1m2f, standard); however didn't appear to get home when upped to this trip since at Ripon (good to soft) having attempted to make all. Can do better.
Has looked novicey at times in three runs, clearly still learning, and now goes right up in trip for this handicap debut with improvement demanded.
Champs Elysees with little appeal after four starts, three on turf and most recently handicap bow at Wolverhampton (1m6f, AW) when beaten 25L at the end.
Daughter of Nathaniel produced a couple of improved efforts after going handicapping at Lingfield (turf/AW), though latest Doncaster run was a sideways step. Still early days and better to come.
Nine-race maiden, ran best turf race so far at Beverley (1m4f, good to firm) last month when just over 4L fourth of eight. Can likely build on that having joined new trainer since.
Filly has only managed to beat a handful of rivals in three starts on the AW circuit so far, makes turf/handicap debut here with improvement to find to get competitive.
Attempted forcing tactics under this claiming rider at Bath (1m3½f, firm) earlier this month and ran best race to date, finishing 1¾L fourth of six. Runs off the same mark and entitled to respect after that effort.
Scored on soft ground at Lingfield (1m3½f) late last month, leaving previous form well behind. Since run poor race on AW at Chelmsford over 1m6f but perhaps will bounce back down in trip/back on turf.
Best effort so far was in a Lingfield seller over this sort of trip in May, comes here having been tailed off over hurdles at Market Rasen earlier this week and remains very hard to recommend.
Has improved for switch to handicapping, running a pair of pleasing races at Yarmouth, the latest when third of 12 over 1m2f last month. Eased another pound in ratings now and may be competitive again.
Tried as a sprinter last season, things haven't improved this term in three spins over middle distances and, for now at least, just seems to lack in ability. Big improvement demanded.
Three qualifying runs over 7f yielded little though last month's handicap bow on the AW at Wolverhampton (1m1½f) was a bit more respectable. Up again in trip and still very early days.
Kodiac filly, never a threat in four starts over 6f/7f but much more like it last time at Lingfield (1m2f, good to firm) when never nearer 2½L fifth of 12 in a handicap. Claims from 1lb lower if building on that showing.
Not shown much in three starts, two of them over 1m2f, and takes first dive into handicaps with expectations set at modest level as a result.
