Form & Verdict
Has shown ability to finish fourth in both starts, but was 3l behind Almutawakel (who was making his debut) at Ffos Las last time; needs to improve if he is to get off the mark and nurseries may be more his thing after this.

OR:

Form & Verdict
Third in both starts over 6f on good to firm ground, only beaten two short heads at Windsor first time and finishing well clear of the fourth at Nottingham last month; latest form hasn't really worked out, but the way he performed then and his pedigree suggest this extra furlong is in his favour; respected.

8-1 and showed promise when second of nine on his Ffos Las debut (7.4f, good to firm) this month; bred to relish middle-distance on the dam's side, but still a major player if coming on from that first effort.

Form & Verdict
9-1 when a staying-on fourth of eight on her Newmarket debut (7f, good to firm) 12 days ago; should have learnt from the experience, but the form is nothing to write home about and this sharper track may not be ideal on pedigree; hood she wore first time now removed.
