Form & Verdict
Out of the frame in his first three starts, but ran better dropped in trip for his nursery debut when third of 12 at Haydock (5f, heavy) last month; that performance was even better than it looked given that he missed the break; very much a contender from the same mark if getting away on terms this time.

0-7, but seems to have improved for the fitting of a visor and ran well to finish third in a couple of Catterick nurseries (5f, good to soft) in September; form of both races has been franked; major contender if handling the surface on AW debut.

Form & Verdict
Ripon maiden winner in May (6f, good), but held since and may not have achieved that much when fourth of nine on his AW debut at Newcastle (6f, Tapeta) seven days ago; hood given a go, but starting to look exposed after ten starts and return to 5f may not be ideal back in a nursery.

Off the mark at the sixth attempt for Archie Watson when landing a Lingfield nursery (5f, Polytrack) in August; changed hands for 16,000gns afterwards and makes her debut for her new yard in first-time cheekpieces after 73 days off; 6lb higher mark to contend with, but still a player.

Off the mark at the sixth attempt for Archie Watson when comfortably landing a Class 6 nursery at Lingfeld six weeks ago; sold for 16,000gns afterwards; more required to defy a 6lb rise in a better race; tongue-tied for the first time today.

Form & Verdict
Beaten a long way on his debut in July and had excuses on his third outing, but he was surrounded by subsequent winners when fifth of 12 at Salisbury (6f, good to firm) in between; makes his nursery debut after 73 days off having been gelded in the meantime and still open to improvement, but not sure the drop to 5f will suit on pedigree.

Already had 11 starts, but she was successful over C&D for Karl Burke in July and was returning here for the first time since when second of ten in first-time cheekpieces (retained) last month; changed hands for 10,000gns soon afterwards; an extra furlong may suit her better now, but still respected on stable debut given her liking for this venue.
