Southwell maiden winner (6f, AW) on his penultimate start was his best so far. Not far off that level back there over 7f last time. Vulnerable to something less exposed, but should still be very competitive if he can make the most of an inside draw.
25-1 and put up a respectable effort on debut at Southwell (6f, AW) last month. Can build on that here if handling soft.
Half-brother to three winners over sprint trips, two of them as juveniles. Dam also a 5f-6f winner, including on soft. Interesting pedigree. Stable quiet enough at present, but a market check is suggested.
5-1 and ran well on debut when 1¾L second in a Hamilton novice event (6f, soft) last month. Has a wide draw to contend with, but looks a leading player.
Went close at both Redcar and Beverley (both 5f, the latter on soft) in his first two starts. Step up to 6f should be no problem and with a good draw here, he should have a big say again.
Made a pleasing debut here over C&D (good to firm) last month. Perhaps his more recent Pontefract run (5f) may have come a little too soon. Has to bounce back from that, but can't rule that out. Unraced on soft.
€32,000 foal, £12,000 2yo. Sixth foal. Half-brother to winners Stormin Tom (1m2f-2m), Galeola (1m4f-1m7f) and Perfectly Fair (Greek 6½f-7¾f) dam unraced half-sister to two Italian Listed winners. Stable not noted for debut 2yo winners.
Not devoid of promise on debut, but took a backward step last time. Probably of greater interest when she has a handicap mark to work with.
50-1 and last of 10, beaten 30L on debut. Can only watch this time.
£40,000 yearling. Fifth foal. Half-sister to winners Red Balloons (5f/6f 2yo), Revel (1m AW) & Dutch Archer (5f). Dam 5f turf 2yo/6f AW winner. Represents top stable that is 14% with 2yos this season, and could go well on her debut.
12-1 and although held by the winner, she did well to finish 3¾L second at Ripon on her debut (5f, soft) in June. Has been given time since then, and from a good draw, she looks a potential contender here.
