Dual winner on heavy (1m½f). Improved from the first of those when scoring in a small field Epsom conditions race last time. Probably capable of stepping up on that again. Player.
Has only run at Haydock so far. Easy winner there (1m, soft) in his second start, though held when stepped up to this grade last time. Still going the right way, and not ruled out.
Improver who scored at Nottingham (1m½f, soft) in maiden company last time. Needs another good step up on that to repeat the dose at this level.
Scored for a second time in a Windsot handicap (1m, soft) latest. Looks exposed by comparison to the remainder of the field. More needed in Listed company.
Looked good when scoring at Doncaster (7f, soft) on debut. Held at Leicester next time, but came good again at York latest. Can take this step up in grade in his stride and go close.
Dual Beverley winner, the latter in good style. Should therefore relish this stiff track and no surprise if she goes close again.
