0-5 last year (all on turf) but showed hints of promise and she caught the eye when fourth at Southwell (6f, AW) on last month's reappearance, when denied a clear run; could have a part to play.

Form & Verdict
Ran three times on AW last summer, showing some promise on the middle occasion (6f); improvement needed on this handicap and seasonal debut, but he's been gelded since last seen and there's potential in his pedigree; interesting contender, all the more so if well backed.

J: Luke Morris

Three quick runs last summer before being gelded and put away; still in need of the experience on his soft-ground comeback 11 days ago, when clear with one other, and holds obvious claims off the same mark (will be 4lb higher from tomorrow).

Form & Verdict
Two 5f wins (good to firm/AW) from final three starts last year; has shown promise on soft/good to soft; has something to prove back up in trip on reappearance, having faded over 6f two starts ago, but he could have more to offer this season and is not ruled out.

Her mark continues to fall and she ran well on turf in Ireland last year (including on soft); however, her form went the wrong way and she was well beaten at Lingfield in February when last seen; now 0-11.

Form & Verdict
No threat when sixth last summer on first three starts (6f/5f) and absent since; however, he's been gelded in the interim and his dam was a classy 6f winner; makes handicap debut off a modest mark and he's one to consider in a first-time tongue-tie.
