Form & Verdict
From a family the trainer knows well and there was some promise in his three runs over 1m/1m1f as a 2yo; should prove a different proposition now handicapping over middle distances; interesting.

Useful pedigree and although he was down the field in three runs last autumn, he's a likely big improver upped in trip for this handicap debut; gelded since last seen; cheekpieces added; betting instructive.

She improved for the switch to nurseries last October, seeing off one who has won three times since in a 1m2f event at Chelmsford in October; near-miss at Wolverhampton two weeks later (9.5f) and then given a break until reappearing at Southwell 17 days ago; may have needed the run there and she's still of interest on her 2yo form.

Modest form in two runs since returning from a 252-day absence, finishing last of seven here on his handicap debut three weeks ago (1m, 22-1; hampered and lost a shoe); wouldn't be the first from his yard to improve markedly for a step up in distance.

0-6 for Charles Hills but wasn't beaten far in 1m nurseries twice in the autumn; sold for 22,000gns in October and gelded; steps up 3f for his stable debut and if he improves for it (mixed messages on pedigree) then he'll be a danger to all.

Eight-race Flat maiden; hasn't demonstrated improvement for a gelding operation or a change of scenery (with Charlie Hills last year); nothing obvious from his pedigree - dam was a 1m Flat winner - to indicate that a switch to hurdles is a positive move.
