14:25 Doncaster Wed 11 September 2019
Record currently stands at 3-4 and made an impressive appearance on handicap bow with 4L victory in 7f Newmarket contest. Has a 10lb rise to contend with but likely to give another bold account.
Twice a winner of novice contests but found to be out of his depth when a distant 10th in the Gimcrack Stakes last time out. Drop in class should suit but current handicap mark may be of concern.
Took notable step up with gutsy victory in good-looking nursery contest at York (6f, good) last month. 9lb rise for that effort seems harsh and yard isn't firing at the moment but commands respect.
Form has dipped since Pontefract win in July, including 9L defeat behind Owney Madden in York nursery (6f) last time out. Plenty to find to reverse that form.
Broke his duck at Salisbury two starts ago but never a factor when stepped up to group company at York (7f) on latest start. Given workable mark for handicap debut but improvement is required.
Progressive sort. Shed maiden tag with impressive success over extended 5f at Bath in early August when making all. This represents another step up in class and trip but will likely force the pace.
Improving sort with racing and did nothing to damage his reputation with narrow second in 1m Newcastle nursery five days ago. Looks to be stable's main hope but may not be suited to drop back to 7f.
Six-race maiden and didn't show any necessary improvement with 2L fourth in 7f Carlisle nursery on latest start. Plenty more needed in a tougher contest.
Got off the mark at Haydock two starts ago but well-held behind useful sort in Thirsk novice (1m, good) last time out. Drop back to 7f should suit and given lenient mark on handicap debut.
