Makes his AW debut with headgear tried for the fourth time having finished well down the field in French nursery last time (out of the frame last six starts). Beaten in sellers/claimers; mark looks high enough, others persuade more.
Back to form last time out from a poor draw over 7f here doing well to take fourth (didn't look suited by the drop in trip). Shaped well the time before over C&D (better than distance beaten); better drawn this time back to 1m; one to note.
Handicap newcomer who hasn't as yet shown that much (couple of respectable effort on French claimers). Made his AW debut last time over 7f in selling company; more needed to be competitive (mark looks challenging).
Very easy to back when making her C&D nursery debut last time (not seen to best effect) finishing in midfield after making late headway. Dropped 3lb for that effort, there may be more to come from a better draw this time around.
Improved with each of her three runs (being brought along steadily); caught the eye last time out over 7f at Chelmsford when fourth (better than the bare result). Now goes handicapping, open to more progress; interesting contender.
Creditable effort on her fourth nursery start over 1m2f last time out making the running but being worn down at the death. Cheekpieces now on for the first-time as she steps back in trip; suspect more is needed to win off this sort of mark.
Just the three minor event runs to his name at up 1m in which he's shown very little so far. Cheekpieces added for his handicap/AW debut; plenty to prove on the evidence so far with his mark looking far from lenient.
Showed very little prior to a wind op including being beaten in handicap company off higher marks. Improved last time on his first start back from his wind procedure taking third off this mark in a 7f nursery; has to prove himself at 1m.
May well be the lesser of the two runners from the stable in this although her latest effort would have been the best that she has produced so far (fourth over C&D). Gave the impression she could win off a basement mark but does meet some improvers.
Hard to take much encouragement from her recent efforts; always behind at Windsor in testing conditions over 5f last time. Yet to try 1m and has shown some signs of temperament issues; AW debut, others make more appeal.
Lightly-raced maiden who remains with little form even after her nursery debut over 6f last time. Raced closer to the pace than ideal last time but hardly the type to be making excuses for; hard to make a case for her chance.
Well beaten in her three starts so far including here over 7f when making an AW debut. Blinkers now reached for as she makes her handicap debut; hasn't shown anything that would make her of interest in this sphere though.
