Windsor 5f novice winner early this season but went close in Newbury nursery in August off 1lb higher. Rested since and interesting on return on only second AW start for yard with fine 50% strike rate here with juveniles.
Mayson colt who ran very free and weakened quickly on debut but did much better last time when fifth over C&D last month. Plenty more needed but not a forlorn hope.
£18,000 Dragon Pulse gelding out of winning juvenile dam. Yard capable of getting one ready for debut and still have a few winners so worth checking for market confidence on first start.
Invincible Spirit filly; dam winning half-sister to French 2000 Guineas winner. Looked very green on racecourse debut and may need a little more time before coming to herself.
£25,000 daughter of Lethal Force who finished lame on debut at Southwell last month after being hampered at the start. Not the ideal first outing and may need a confidence boost here before showing what she can do.
Irish raider who was solid third at Naas in October over 6f and was runner-up last time at same trip at Kempton. Can put experience to good use and should be right in the thick of the action once again.
Due Dilligence filly who has shown very little sign of any real ability in first two starts and would be a shock winner on evidence to date.
Good second on debut in York novice stakes before being outclassed in Listed event at HQ last month. Odds-on but only third at Wolverhampton last time after twice being hampered. Every chance with a clear run for yard with 33% strike rate here.
250/1 on debut here over 6f a few weeks ago but did show some pace until tiring 2f out. Drops back in trip but this daughter of Heeraat appears to have plenty on her plate.
