The winner of two AW events in January, staying 1m2f well on the second occasion; hot favourite for his turf/handicap debut in June (1m2f, good) but he stopped quickly; too soon to write him off but others look safer.

Nicely progressive in winning a 1m1f maiden and 1m2f novice at two northern tracks before his effort petered out trying 1m4f for the first time at Newcastle (handicap debut); returns to what's probably his optimum trip and remains something of an unknown quantity.

Useful 2yo for Michael Bell but he hasn't added to his debut success and the return to this stable didn't spark a revival when well beaten at Sandown 18 days ago; down in the weights but others are more appealing.

Winless since his debut for Michael Bell but he made a promising start for his new yard when sixth of 11 in 7f Newmarket handicap four weeks ago, finishing well having not enjoyed the clearest of runs; interesting off a 1lb lower mark.

Form & Verdict
Struggled at Royal Ascot but otherwise progressing well this year and she impressed with the way she moved through the race when beating 17 rivals at Goodwood seven weeks ago (1m, good to soft); up 6lb and taking on male opposition but her pedigree offers hope of even better at this trip.

Building up a very solid CV and her Kempton handicap win in November was her fourth in all; might have just needed the run when beaten a head in 1m Listed race there on reappearance; handles soft ground and has a win and a second from two runs at Goodwood; has plenty in her favour.
