Thrice-raced maiden. Fourth of 6 in minor event at this course (6f, 22/1) 50 days ago. Needs to improve for the switch to nurseries.
Thrice-raced maiden. 8/1, ninth of 11 in nursery at Newcastle (6f) 45 days ago. First run for yard after leaving James Fanshawe. Blinkers on 1st time. May yet do better.
Lightly-raced maiden. Creditable sixth of 12 in nursery at this C&D (80/1) 15 days ago. Given a chance by handicapper since (dropped 4 lb) and tried in cheekpieces now.
Lightly-raced maiden. Last of 10 in nursery at Southwell (5f, 40/1) 24 days ago. Significantly up in trip. Makes polytrack debut. Not one to write off just yet.
Lightly-raced maiden. 3/1, respectable sixth of 12 in nursery at Wolverhampton (7.2f) 13 days ago. Cheekpieces on 1st time. May yet have a bigger effort in him.
Lightly-raced maiden. Cheekpieces on for 1st time, eleventh of 13 in nursery (50/1) at Wolverhampton (8.6f) 11 days ago. Needs blinkers to bring about some improvement.
Thrice-raced maiden. Sixth of 12 in minor event (25/1) at Wolverhampton (6.1f) 25 days ago. Type to better now blinkered for handicap debut.
25/1, good second of 10 in nursery at Newcastle (6f) 21 days ago, suited by drop in trip. Not taken lightly back over more suitable distance.
Lightly-raced maiden. Ninth of 11 in nursery at Kempton (6f, 18/1) 37 days ago. Others make more appeal.
20/1, ninth of 14 in nursery at this course (8f) 15 days ago. Hard to make any sort of case for.
Lightly-raced maiden. Seventh of 11 in nursery at this course (8f, 50/1) 15 days ago. Looks limited on early evidence.
River Wharfe (3/1), Fircombe Hall (7/2), Dutch Light (6/1), The Whipmaster (8/1), The Chain (8/1), Kayfast Warrior (10/1), Beryl Burton (10/1), Lisdarragh (14/1), Little Sunflower (14/1), Katie's Kitten (20/1), Halwa Azyan (25/1)
RIVER WHARFE hasn't quite lived up to his pedigree as yet but his two efforts in nurseries have contained encouragement and there's a chance first-time cheekpieces brings more out of him, so he's a tentative choice to come out on top in a trappy nursery. Fircombe Hall ranks as the main danger after a good second at Newcastle and The Chain can't be dismissed down in grade.
