Talented juvenile has regained that level of promise with some rapid progress this campaign. Has relished a switch to this surface on his last three starts and is still open to further progress on it off just 3lb higher. Leading hope once again.
Won a Chepstow novice by 9L but still improved significantly on handicap and AW debut when following up at Chelmsford. Up 11lb and significantly in class on track debut but still no reason he can't go close again at the ratings.
Two from four on the AW but failed badly on both handicap starts on turf. Returns following a wind and gelding operation and a drop of 2lb but may find this tough again.
Won on first start at this trip over this C&D last time and now 3lb higher. That was a clear career best and he's still improving so no reason he can't go close despite the step up in class.
Remains a 12-race maiden and while she's been highly tried at times, she has proven inconsistent. Ran close to her best at Ascot latest and now makes AW debut in blinkers. Capable of going well but remains hard to predict.
An improved performer since his sole AW start on debut and makes his first run at this track. Progressed again the last twice at Sandown but this still requires more up in class once again.
Twice a winner from five starts and has really kicked on the last twice on fast ground including an unlucky latest second. Up in class and 2lb but can't rule out she makes the required improvement to go close again.
Good third at Ascot hasn't quite been matched in three starts at this track since. First time hood added and a bit to find with Kuwait Currency from his latest defeat.
