Half-brother to multiple winners ran to his outsider status when 15L last of 12 on debut at Sandown (7f) two weeks ago. Looked to be a strong maiden but plenty more needed to land a blow.
Nathaniel gelding. Offered promise on debut with 3L fifth in 7f Chepstow novice contest last month. Won't need to improve greatly to play a part in this and is respected.
Sixties Icon colt. 11th of 18 in 7f Leicester novice contest on debut but wasn't knocked about greatly that day. Entitled to come on for the effort and represents a yard who are in good form.
Is a half-brother to several winners but looked outpaced on debut when last of 8 at Brighton (6f, good to firm) in August. Step up in trip is a plus but looks to be more of a long-term prospect.
regally-bred improving filly. Progressed from debut effort with narrow second in extended 7f Beverley novice when still showing signs of inexperience. More progression likely and is the one to beat.
Hasn't got a striking pedigree on paper and didn't pull up any trees when last of 15 in 7f Goodwood maiden on debut. Looks to be stable's second string and offers little appeal.
Didn't show any natural progression from debut with 10L fifth in weak-looking maiden contest over C&D last time out. Others readily preferred.
