Form & Verdict
2-2 since the visor went on with both wins at Leicester this month, a 6f seller (good to soft) and a five-runner nursery (7f, good to firm); 5lb higher, but won with a bit in hand last time and suited by a stiff track; respected for stable that also runs Mickey Donovan.

Form & Verdict
Held since narowly off the mark in a Ripon novice (5f, good) in April, but although she has faced a couple of stiff tasks in the meantime she didn't improve for the step up in trip when a well held fourth of six on nursery debut at Chester (7f, good) this month; 4lb lower but can still be opposed from her wide draw.

Form & Verdict
Claimed for £6,000 after comfortably winning a Redcar claimer (7f, good to firm) for Mick Channon last month, but tailed off on stable/nursery debut at Catterick (7f, good) 20 days ago; may have had an excuse (reportedly slipped leaving the stalls) and cheekpieces now given a go, but he still has a bit to prove and is drawn wider than ideal.

Fourth in all four starts so far, including when stepped up to 6f for her nursery debut at Pontefract (good to firm) three weeks ago; finished just behind Fomo there and every chance of reversing the form on 7lb better terms, especially with the longer trip likely to suit on breeding; shouldn't be far away.

Patchy form in her first five starts, but made the most of a return to maiden company when comfortably beating four rivals at Musselburgh (7f, good) seven days ago; more to do back in a nursery from a 6lb higher mark and may struggle to confirm earlier Pontefract form with Martha's Moment.

Form & Verdict
Out of the frame in three starts though showed a bit more when beaten just over 4l into seventh of 15 in a Thirsk novice (6f, good) last time (just behind Anieres Girl); probably has more to offer now making his nursery debut and the stiffer test should suit on breeding, but the outside stall isn't helpful.

Verdict

Two recent wins at Leicester have shown that KISS N CUDDLE (nap) is suited by a stiff finish so he is taken to defy a 5lb higher mark and complete the hat-trick. Clear To Land should appreciate the return here having finished runner-up over C&D on her penultimate start, but second choice is Martha's Moment whose pedigree suggests she will appreciate the step up in trip. Anieres Girl looks the most interesting of those making their nursery debut.[David Bellingham]
