Form & Verdict
Thrice-raced colt who isn't completely solid off this opening mark, judged on balance of form; improvement is still possible now handicapping but whether he can defy top weight is another matter.

J: Dougie Costello

Has a bit to find with Flavour Maker on their Windsor encounter this month but entered a few notebooks in how he kept on in the closing stages, which represented a marked improvement on his first run; drawn wide.

Form & Verdict
Interesting on debut effort (fourth to smart rival) but nowhere near that form in her two subsequent runs, latest for new yard; chance partly depends on how well she responds to first-time headgear.

Fair fourth to the high-class Relief Rally on debut at Windsor (5f, soft) in April; disappointing at Haydock (6f, good to firm) in May but can be firmly in the mix if tapping back into her debut promise on this stable debut (formerly with Dominic Ffrench Davis; remains in same ownership).

Form: 36231

2 yo Filly

Form & Verdict
Has performed well in soft-ground nurseries since wearing cheekpieces, finishing third over 6f at Thirsk then winning over 7f at Catterick (got up on line); may have more to offer in the headgear; shortlisted.

Better than bare result at Chepstow (5f) on nursery debut; opened her account at Leicester (6f, good to soft) since, holding on by a neck, and looks capable of further progress at this level; respected up 5lb.

Cypriot Diaspora

9st 8lb

T: Rod Millman

Unlucky on her nursery debut at Chepstow and showed her true colours with a game effort to win a Class 5 fillies' nursery at Leicester last month; 4lb rise, allied to the widest stall, might be enough to scupper the follow-up; AW debut.

5/1

Form & Verdict
Form dipped on AW last time; made all in soft-ground contest at Ffos Las in July and ties in with Cypriot Diaspora on most recent turf effort; now wears headgear; not dismissed back in this sphere.

Consistent spell at maiden/novice level included Catterick success on good ground; however, her nursery form (all in cheekpieces) is far from compelling; needs to do much better with the headgear removed.

Verdict

Preference is for Leicester scorer CYPRIOT DIASPORA, who looks open to further improvement in handicaps and represents last year’s winning yard. Lady Ava, another last-time-out winner who may well have more to offer, is feared most ahead of Charlie Mason and Without Flaw.[Steve Boow]
