Form & Verdict
Unplaced in five 2yo starts, the first three of them for Clive Cox, but he hinted at better on several occasions, not seeing out his races; he's been gelded since and could be well treated if that has a positive effect; another to consider.

Form & Verdict
Has shown promise on all four of his runs to date, running creditably after five months off when third of six in a Wolverhampton maiden (5f; AW debut) four weeks ago; returning to 6f should suit, and if he builds on that last run he'll be a danger to all.

Beaten favourite upped to 7f at Southwell last time, taking record to 0-6; has some encouraging sprint-race form, notably second over C&D earlier in January; combination of first-time headgear and drop back in trip may prompt a first win.

Has had more racing than the others but his AW record is a solid one, and after winning over 6f at Wolverhampton in the summer he ran a cracker when beaten a neck over 7f here; returns from a break after a respectable run on turf; capable of a bold show under optimum conditions.

Dual Tapeta winner (6f) who is well handicapped on his best form for Rod Millman; made a low-key start for this yard in October but he travelled smoothly for a long way when third of 12 over C&D last month; that was much more like it and he's a big player if he can build on that.
