Well held last of five on recent debut at Southwell (7f). Much more needed.
Well beaten on debut at Ripon (6f) and looks best watched here.
0-6 and inconsistent so far. However, went close in Hamilton nursery (6f, heavy) last time, and has claims if able to produce something similar.
€15,000 foal, £16,000 yearling. First foal of a 6f/1m 2yo winner. Stable not know for 2yo debut winners, so a market check is suggested.
€8,500 foal, £3,000 yearling. Dam a half-sister to 6f juvenile Group 2 winner Frederick Engels. Stable not know for 2yo success, so perhaps best watched on debut.
Promising debut at Redcar (5f, good to firm), when sticking on for fourth. Step up in trip and stiffer track open up possibilities. Could go close.
Well held in both starts over further. Drops in trip, but that is not obvious source of improvement.
Showed some ability on her first two starts, and went close when upped to 6f at Lingfield last time. Now has to prove she acts on turf, but could be a contender if she can do so.
Ran well to go close on debut over C&D (good to soft), but hasn't gone on from there. May do better now back here, and should compete for a share of the prize money again.
Daughter of multiple sprint winner Spinatrix who was not disgraced on her Thirsk debut (6f, soft). Should come on for that. Not the best of draws, but not written off.
Trainer did well with her half-sister, but this filly was well held on her debut on AW. Could benefit from switch to turf, but probably best watched again this time.
