Improved from his debut at Ripon to finish 2¼L third of five at Musselburgh last time, sticking to his task while no match for the front pair. Form of that race not particularly strong though and he'll need another chunk of improvement to win this.
Failed to beat a rival home in a 10 runner event at Kempton on debut but it was a slightly better performance at Wolverhampton last time. Turf debut and must do more to mix it with these rivals.
Hinted at ability on debut at Doncaster (6f) but didn't really improve for the drop back to this trip at Thirsk on second start. Form of that race doesn't appear to be anything special and improvement needed.
Tailed off on Newbury (7f) debut when last of nine. Half-brother to a useful sprinter and the drop back in trip could see him in a better light.
Zebedee filly, dam a 6f juvenile winner. Cost €19,000 as a Breeze-up purchase. Yard without a two-year-old winner this year. Declared a non-runner twice due to unsuitable ground (soft/good to soft), an obvious concern given recent rain.
Exceed And Excel, sister to a 6f winner as a juvenile, half-sister to another juvenile winner who went on to Listed success. Well-bred sort and yard have unleashed some useful types here first time out.
Delegator filly, half-sister to three winners, all at 7f or further. Promising debut over C&D, finishing runner-up and the winner has come out and won since (beating a rival already rated 95). Sets the standard on form.
