16:30 Beverley Thu 15 August 2019
Generally speaking has shown his very best form on the AW (4123); disappointing since finishing runner-up at Musselburgh (1m1f, good) in May; 8lb lower and recently gelded.
Kept on strongly when comfortably seeing off Lady Scatterley here on the Westwood (1m2f, good to firm) in July; solid in defeat since (twice placed) and continuing to inch up the weights as a result; further rain would be a slight concern.
3lb lower than when winning a 6f soft ground nursery at Doncaster last November; his best effort of 2019 also came on soft ground at Carlisle (1m) in May; tailed-off last at Haydock recently.
Still seeking her first success (0-6); 4lb lower than when finishing third to Li Kui on seasonal reappearance at Pontefract (1m, good to firm) in July; hasn't quite stayed 1m2f on her most recent starts.
Consistent 18-race maiden who handles most conditions between 1m and 1m2f; sent off 7-4f when fourth to My Ukulele in a Class 5 handicap at Thirsk (1m, good to soft) 12 days ago; stablemate of Dreamseller.
New Approach filly; ran well on her seasonal debut at Newmarket (1m) in April when finishing a distant third to Maqsad/Twist 'N' Shake; hasn't matched that since and continues to slip down the weights; first start for Donald McCain.
Stayed on strongly when terminating Termonator over 7½f (good) in a Class 6 apprentices' handicap here in May; solid if a shade unspectacular since; certainly capable of making the frame.
Beaten a mere 2½L when fourth to Muhaarar's Nephew in a soft ground C&D maiden (66-1) in June; difficult draw, but taking that aside has the scope to do better now introduced to handicapping.
Remains a maiden (0-10); finished just in front of today's rival One To Go when squeezing into the frame at odds of 33-1 at Thirsk (1m, good to soft) 12 days ago; 2lb higher.
With Ger Lyons in Ireland earlier in the year (0-3); slowly away and always in rear (last of 11) on handicap/stable debut at Nottingham (1m2f, soft) a fortnight ago; 5lb lower.
Still searching for her first career success having been campaigned mainly over 1m2f and beyond since joining this trainer (0-7) from Ger Lyons; has previous Beverley experience.
Boasts a couple of bits of placed form on his CV (7f-1m); left Clive Cox for 13,000gns in July after finishing a ½L second to Mitigator at Lingfield (1m, standard); low-mileage on turf (0-3).
Nine-race maiden; has shown improved form during the month of July; headed inside the final furlong when beaten 2L by stablemate Red Seeker over 7½f here (good) latest; stamina to prove over further.
Beaten 1L by Royal Duchess in a 7f apprentices handicap at Ayr (good to firm) last month but that form isn't overly strong and he posted a poor effort at Redcar latest; appears to be vulnerable in terms of stamina at 1m+.
