Made a winning start to his career on his only Irish start over 5f at Navan in May before disappointing twice for this yard last month. Possible to excuse his last run on Fibresand (looked all at sea); hard to know what to expect now back on turf.
Took advantage of a much-reduced mark/enterprising ride when scoring at Carlisle (6f, soft) last time, application of blinkers also helped. Course winner over 5f as a 2yo; ought to continue revival off a 4lb higher mark, ground should suit again.
Suited by the run of the race and the switch to handicaps when gaining his first win over C&D beating some reasonable types at this level (needs a strong gallop to aim at). Failed to reach the same level in two outings since; blinkers now tried.
Runner-up in three of his five starts for this yard; remains a maiden (0-9) overall. Turned in one of his better performances last time at Catterick (5f), finishing second to Fox Hill (6lb better off for 1¾L beating); should make his presence felt.
Showed her versatility when scoring over 5f last time having previously won twice at 6f; showed plenty of speed to beat Kaafy. Up 6lb but should find the return to 6f suiting although a drying surface would enhance her chance further; leading player.
Produced a couple of reasonable efforts over 6f/7f in June before that fair run of form came to a halt abruptly. Last two starts have been well below-par and he comes here under a cloud with cheekpieces on first-time; yard respected with GB raiders.
Modest form in three French 6f outings (best performance came on debut) before offering little on her first start for this yard stepped up to 1m (wore hood). Now makes her handicap debut back at 6f; hard to know what to expect with hood retained.
Appears as though her progress hinted at when third at Sligo in June has halted now; three subsequent starts all at the same 6f trip being below-par. Never on terms when well held at Navan last time; mark continues to fall all to no avail.
Modest maiden who looked in reasonable heart in her first five starts of the year, produced three placed efforts. Not been at her best of late though with two sub-par efforts to her name; returns from a short break but would need others to falter.
Departed the William Haggas stable after a solitary start over 1m (AW); fared no better in three starts for this yard at 7f/1m including her handicap debut last time. Slow away on a couple of occasions; blinkers are no tried for the first-time.
