Fair fifth in a 7f novice event at Wolverhampton on debut in August but struggled dropped to 6f at Newbury (good) the following month. Probably best watched upped in distance on first start since being gelded.
Good second over an extended 7f on the AW at Deauville in August. Held there twice subsequently however including when sixth over an extended 1m1f last month. Cheekpieces tried for the first time.
Placed on both starts to date most recently when beaten 1L in a 1m maiden at Newcastle in September. Winner and third have both won since and he is a leading contender with blinkers added for the first time.
Slowly away and shaped as if in need of the experience when 25L 11th of 12 in a C&D novice race on debut here on Thursday. Probably best watched at present.
Finished a well beaten 37L last of 13 in a heavy ground 1m novice contest on debut last month. Needs to leave that form well behind if he's to register a victory in this event.
Signs of ability prior to weakening into sixth, beaten 3¼L in a 7f novice race at Kempton when debuting at the start of last month. Will need to settle better if he's to break his maiden on this occasion.
Gave trouble at the start prior to finishing 13L ninth in a 1m fillies novice contest when making her debut at Kempton in September. Given a break since and probably best watched in this contest.
Never a factor when finishing 19½L last of 13 in a 1m fillies novice race on debut at Kempton earlier this month. Others appear to hold stronger claims.
Tried to make all prior to finishing a well held 14½L last of five in a soft ground Doncaster fillies novice contest over 7f on debut in June. Others make more appeal.
Fair fifth when making her debut in a fillies maiden over an extended 1m at Nottingham (heavy) earlier this month. Improvement needed if she is to take this event.
