Broke his duck at Windsor two starts ago and returned to that venue to win 6f novice narrowly in late August. Not seen since and drops back to 5f, but runner-up of that race has gone on to win valuable sales race. Place claims.
Ready winner at Newmarket (6f) on debut and maintained his unbeaten record with success at Doncaster (6f) last month. Idled badly that day and nearly threw victory away but entitled to come on further.
Winner of his first two starts over 5f but failed to land a blow since being upped in distance, including 9L fourth in Firehouse Listed contest (6f) last time out. More needed back at this trip.
Bumped into a few high-class juveniles this season but appreciated the drop in grade when ready winner of 6f Listed contest at Ripon in late September. Leading contender if running to that level again.
Kept busy and improving this season, winning a Listed race at Deauville in August and wasn't beaten far in the Flying Childers last time. Will still need to reverse the form with Dream Shot on that evidence.
Last win came in a Listed contest at Sandown in May but took a backward step when ninth in the Group 2 Lowther Stakes at the Ebor Festival (6f). Not seen since and vulnerable to less exposed rivals.
Successful at Listed level earlier in the season and produced a career best when third in the Lowther Stakes on penultimate start before bombing out in 6f Salisbury Group 3. A bit to find now.
Dual winner at the start of the season and got her career back on track with good third in 5f Listed contest at Ayr on latest start. Can't be ruled out, especially if rain arrives.
80,000 gas purchase as a yearling. Defied a hefty market drift on debut to score in fine style at Yarmouth (6f, good to firm) in September. Form of that race hasn't been tested but dangerous to dismiss.
Broke her maiden tag at Sandown three starts ago but found wanting in pattern company since, including fifth in Salisbury Group 3 (6f) last time. Big step up required in this.
Sole win came at Windsor back in May but well held at this level since. Latest ninth in Salisbury Group 3 (6f) offers limited appeal.
Placed on all four starts before deservedly getting off the mark in 5f Lingfield novice in early September. Form of that race looks weak however and may find this company too hot to handle.
