14:55 Nottingham Wed 9 October 2019
Winner of his last three starts, showing a good attitude in the process when rallying to score at Newcastle last time out. Upped in trip but handles the ground and has a course win to his name, so plenty going for him in the quest for a four-timer.
Easy winner at Wolverhampton in August but then a most disappointing favourite at Kempton last time out, last of five despite being sent off odds-on. Bit to prove after that but early days, and ground may suit.
Winner of two of his four starts, didn't need to improve to make the most of an easy opportunity at Beverley last time but did the job well. Ground still a question mark after he was beaten on it at Hamilton in August, but chances all the same.
Went close over a mile here in August (good to soft) but then took a step backwards when well beaten at Pontefract last time. Looked very much in need of a step up in trip there, so cloud do better today, and not discounted.
Winner at Newcaslte last time out, although that was only a modest affair and he didn't need to improve to take it. Should appreciate the step up in trip but may need to, and this ground an unknown too. Others preferred.
Improving steadily with each start and made it three wins from four starts with a game win at Pontefract last time. Was slowly away there, a trait she doesn't need to repeat here, and this ground will be the slowest she's raced on.
Has improved a little with each start and caught the eye with a never-nearer fifth at Goodwood last time, staying on under tender handling. Likely to improve on nursery debut today and yard do get a few winners at this track.
Won a little race at Beverley in August but was well beaten on nursery debut at Thirsk on latest start. Upped in trip and this ground an unknown too, so plenty of questions to answer.
Not shown a great lot in three starts but it was a little better at Epsom last time, has been gelded since then and this step up in trip should help. Not discounted, especially if there's a bit of money around for him. Interesting.
