Only made her AW debut last month and was only beaten 2l when fifth of eight at Chelmsford (1m, Polytrack) 13 days ago; would have gone even closer with a clear run and not dismissed lightly.

Dual 1m winner who went close off this mark at Carlisle in August but was well below form on AW debut here two weeks ago; that was in a Class 3 event but she needs to leave that form behind on this drop back in trip.

Form & Verdict
All ten wins have come on Tapeta including six here; now 6lb higher than when completing a hat-trick in the autumn, but beaten just a nose from 1lb lower at Southwell (7f, Tapeta) on his penultimate outing and possible to forgive his two efforts either side (latest defeat back at Southwell was in a better race); respected.

Form & Verdict
Got the race in the stewards' room in a three-runner Musselburgh maiden win (7f, good) last April, but out of the frame in all five starts since and finished well behind Bobby Joe Leg at Southwell (7f, Tapeta) last month; enough to prove.

Musselburgh win (awarded the race) came in a weak three-runner affair and he's struggled since handicapping; offered a bit more at a huge price last time but still needs a good step forward.

Got the race in the stewards' room in a three-runner maiden at Musselburgh (7f, good) in April, but not finished within 12l of the winner in three handicaps since; needs dramatic improvement for the switch to the AW.

Form & Verdict
2-22, but placed in four consecutive starts over C&D (the last two from 1lb higher) before again appearing to find 1m stretching him here 13 days ago; may enjoy the run of the race in front in this small field and could take some overhauling if he does.

Front-runner who's turned in a string of consistent efforts over 7f here in recent times, including twice for today's 7lb claimer; hasn't totally convinced in a few previous tries over this trip, though, and will need to settle better than is often the case.

Form & Verdict
Out of the frame in all nine starts on turf in Ireland but, having been well backed, she showed much more when second of 13 on stable/AW debut at Chelmsford 11 days ago; that was only a 0-50 classified, though, and more will be needed at this level.
