Off time: 14:20  |   Winning time: 1m 40.27s

Age: 2|  Weight: 9-7  |  J: D Tudhope |  T: D O'Meara|  OR: 68

In the frame in three runs to date, but failed to progress any further when fourth in an extended 7f maiden at Beverley last time. Bred to stay this far, and possible she will improve now tried in cheekpieces for switch to nurseries.

Age: 2|  Weight: 9-6  |  J: P Mulrennan |  T: I Jardine|  OR: 67

Improved on debut effort despite not being seen to best effect when 3½L third of 4 to Chase The Dollar in a 7f maiden at Ayr last time. Will improve again, and looks on a fair mark now handicapping.

Age: 2|  Weight: 9-6  |  J: Jack Mitchell |  T: I Mohammed|  OR: 67

Not beaten far (2¼L) when fifth of nine in a 6f maiden at Wolverhampton in June, but ran poorly at Yarmouth next time. Bred for longer trips, so should still improve, and needs a market check on nursery bow.

Age: 2|  Weight: 9-5  |  J: Kevin Stott |  T: K A Ryan|  OR: 66

In the frame on all three starts so far at around 7f without improving. Fair chance on best effort, and possible that the fitting of cheekpieces will have a galvanising effect.

Age: 2|  Weight: 9-5  |  J: Alistair Rawlinson |  T: M Appleby|  OR: 66

Ran no race on debut, but fared much better when third of 9 to Topper Bill in a 7f maiden at Catterick last time. Likely to do better still, and bred to relish this trip, so shortlisted.

Age: 2|  Weight: 9-4  |  J: D Allan |  T: T D Easterby|  OR: 65

Showed a fair level of ability in three qualifying runs over 6f, and ran to similar level when 3¼L fourth of 7 to Samara Bay on nursery debut at Catterick last time. Sprint-bred, but looks worth a try at 1m on that evidence.

Age: 2|  Weight: 9-2  |  J: B A Curtis |  T: David Loughnane|  OR: 63

Improved markedly on previous efforts to finish third at 66-1 behind Magisterium at Redcar, and matched that form when second of 7 to Samara Bay on nursery debut at Catterick (7f). Should remain competitive off 1lb higher.

Age: 2|  Weight: 9-2  |  J: T Hamilton |  T: R A Fahey|  OR: 63

Much improved from poor debut effort when 3¼L. fifth of 11 to Chosen Mark in a 7f maiden at Newcastle last month. Finished well there, and should progress further at this trip. Respected for yard in good form.

Age: 2|  Weight: 8-7  |  J: J Fanning |  T: M Johnston|  OR: 54

Beaten a fair way in two 7f maidens, albeit looking in need of the experoience on each of those runs. In good hands, and bred for better at 1m plus, so folly to ignore pitched straight into nurseries.

Age: 2|  Weight: 8-0  |  J: R Ffrench |  T: N Tinkler|  OR: 47

Nearer last than first in three starts to date, and although she has given the impression she's been trained with handicaps in mind, the assessor has been fairly harsh with her opening mark.



Innse Gall (9/4), Locket (4/1), Golden Claim (7/1), Emerald Ensign (7/1), Nortonthorpe Boy (9/1), Infant Hercules (10/1), Eagle Eyed Freddie (12/1), Boundsy Boy (12/1), Mister Allegro (20/1), Valley Of Silver (66/1)

A first try over 1m for all the runners, and not an easy race as a result. INNSE GALL has been handed both a good draw and a fair opening mark after an improved showing at Ayr second time, and he looks the safest call. Eagle Eyed Freddie is effectively handicapped on just one run, and he very much took the eye at Catterick, so enters calculations, while Emerald Ensign was runner-up on her nursery debut, and has obvious place claims having gone up just 1lb.
