Not a bad debut at Wolverhampton in January but hasn't gone on from that in two subsequent starts and goes into handicaps with plenty to prove. Has had a wind operation since last being seen, but makes little appeal all the same.
Hit the frame for the first time in 12 starts at Epsom last time, beaten just a length and running his best race for a while, but drop back to 6f not sure to suit and could have been better drawn as well. More to do.
Winner at Brighton in June and fairly handicapped on that, but you need some excuses for some moderate efforts on his last three starts and the addition of blinkers doesn't seem to have improved matters. Needs to bounce back to best.
Was going nowhere until producing a much better effort over this C&D last time out, staying on nicely for second. Looks well enough handicapped at present and if he can repeat that and build a bit on it, has every chance of going one better.
No win in 11 starts but was placed over C&D back in June and gives the impression there's a race to be won with her somewhere. Ran okay over Kempton's mile last time and from a reasonable draw, has place chances at least.
Well beaten in three starts but at least goes handicapping at a low level and she does have some speed about her. Has had a break too, and if she comes back in good order, could take a hand if she can improve just a little.
Not done a lot in seven starts and you'd be hard pushed to say she's progressing, soft ground a possible excuse last time but connections already going for some headgear to try and remedy the situation and it looks more in hope than anything.
No wins or places in eight starts and in truth, isn't progressing and has been beaten big distances on her last three starts. Has the plot draw in stall 1 but that's really the only positive you can take.
Just one win in 18 starts and although she wasn't beaten far over this C&D on her first start for this yard back in June, she's not gone on from that. Return of the cheekpieces may help, but stall 11 is no help and she's easy enough to pass over.
First real form in six starts when second at Chepstow last time out, doing some good late work to grab second close home. Different conditions to cope with here but she's open to improvement and on that alone, has to be of interest.
