Form & Verdict
Son of Cityscape who hinted at promise in three runs as a 2yo, coming in eighth in 7f Chelmsford novice in November; has since been gelded and may take a step forward in a first-time hood now handicapping with his stamina drawn out more; withdrawn (unruly in stalls) latest intended start.

Form & Verdict
Got off the mark in 1m Southwell handicap in February and not disgraced in first-time cheekpieces when fourth in similar event at Kempton 27 days ago; this step up in trip should suit so he's not discounted.

Contrasting performances at Southwell (1m) this year, winning on reappearance (handicap debut) but disappointing last time; in excellent hands and could bounce back if taking well to first-time headgear.

J: Daniel Tudhope

T: William Haggas

Hinted at ability in his three 2yo runs and duly took a step forward on his handicap debut/reappearance/first run after being gelded when gamely landing a C&D event 16 days ago; still looked to be learning on the job there and a 3lb rise may underestimate him.

Form & Verdict
Son of Bobby's Kitten who has been brought along steadily, keeping-on fifth of 11 in 1m Lingfield novice in February; has since been gelded and appeals as the sort to take a sizeable step forward now going handicapping up in trip.

He didn't have to improve to get off the mark in a small-field novice at Doncaster in June (1m2f, good; cheekpieces for the first time); below that level at Pontefract last month but there is still time for him to deliver an improved showing.

Fair juvenile maiden but she beat only one in 7f Wolverhampton handicap when last seen in December; cheekpieces are reached for over this longer trip and she's no forlorn hope.
