Form & Verdict
Handy sort who has won twice at Chester, a 6f maiden (good) in May and a 7f novice (good to soft) this month; may have been racing on the wrong side and found the ground too testing when sixth of seven in a Doncaster nursery (7f, soft) nine days ago; respected provided the ground doesn't deteriorate further and if allowed his own way.

Form & Verdict
Had shown ability in modest company prior to making it sixth-time lucky in a Carlisle nursery (7f, good) last month, but well held at Southwell (7f, AW) ten days ago; may not have taken to the surface there, but he looks vulnerable to an improver from 1lb out of the weights.

Beaten twice in selling grade this summer but hit the target in Carlisle nursery (7f) two weeks ago, getting on top towards the finish; may build on that success, provided he takes to AW.

Form & Verdict
Has shown ability in each of his first three starts in maiden/novice company over 6f on good ground, on each occasion staying on well at the end while his pedigree also strongly suggests he will be suited by the extra furlong on nursery debut; high on the list for his in-form yard.

Minor honours in four of five races; best form and rallied well when second of ten in nursery at York (upped to 1m, soft) last time, just in front of Bust A Move; 2lb higher today and considered.

Form & Verdict
Out of the frame in three starts, but not without ability as when beaten less than 7l in the Convivial Maiden over C&D (good to firm; 80-1) last time; improvement possible now switched to a nursery, but it will be needed from 1lb out of the handicap.

Encouraging effort at York (7f; handicap debut) on latest turf start, beaten just under 2l; bred to be suited by this scenario, being closely related to a C&D scorer; not dismissed.

Displayed promise when keeping on for fifth on last month's debut at Pontefract (6f, good to soft), where he was denied a clear run, but only sixth of 12 at Nottingham (6f, good to soft) since and others appeal more.

Form & Verdict
May have found the ground too testing at Sandown (7f, heavy) on his second start having made such a promising debut over the same C&D (good to soft), but back on track when beating 15 rivals at Chelmsford (7f, AW) last time; still looked green there, so a major player on nursery debut provided the ground doesn't get any slower.

Promising second of ten at Newmarket on last month's debut (7f, good to soft; winner useful); beaten at odds-on at Sandown four weeks ago but he may have found the heavy ground too demanding; big chance if reproducing his debut effort.

Form & Verdict
Showed promise when sixth of ten on his Carlisle debut (6f, good to firm) in July (going changed to good to soft immediately after the race), but didn't build on it in two further starts that month, the second over this C&D (good to soft); may improve now handicapping, but others appeal more.

Both runs over 6f; debut at Carlisle (good to firm) was promising but finished well behind a couple of these last week at Pontefract (good to soft) and likely to be more competitive when sent into nurseries.
