Finished in front of Storm Force One and Zara's Universe when fourth in a similar race on debut over C&D last month. Should improve with experience now on her side. Likely to be in the shake-up.
Daughter of Intello. £16,000 purchase at Doncaster sales in August 2019. Represents yard who are in-form and do well with newcomers in these types of races. Market check advised.
Gentlewave filly who makes debut for connections who aren't readily associated with newcomer/bumper winners. Likely to need further, and is best watched against speedier bred rivals.
Martaline filly who cost £26,000 as a three-year-old. This trip likely to be a bit sharp given she is related to French horses who won over 2m3f/2m4f. Should have a bright future though.
Made a very pleasing start to life when third in a better race on debut at Newbury (1m4f; soft) recently. Comfortably clear of the fourth that day, and any improvement from that effort would make her hard to beat.
Newcomer by Malinas for yard with 19% strike-rate at this track, and a 15% strike rate in bumpers. Market check advised with this one, but this isn't an easy race to start off in.
Third in a warm contest behind a potentially above-average winner at Newcastle (1m6f; soft) on debut. Drops back slightly in trip, which shouldn't be a hinderance and jockey booking looks significant. Leading claims.
Yard form is a worry, but this Sageburg filly has a smart middle-distance flat pedigree. Significant if she is strong in the betting on debut in what looks an open contest.
Offered glimpses of promise in fifth on debut over C&D last month when looking as though he was getting the hang of things late on. Could be a different proposition now and has place claims if so.
Would need to step up significantly on the bare form of her debut effort over C&D last month when a well-beaten eighth of 11. Should improve once sent hurdling given she is a half-sister to Ryedale Racer.
