Placed in the first of his two runs for Karl Burke last October before changing hands for 30,000gns in the autumn; returned after wind/gelding operations last month and he made a winning start for new yard at Brighton (6f, good to firm); looks on a fair mark now switched to a handicap and he's open to more progress; interesting contender.

Form & Verdict
Promise in his first three starts over 1m on he AW at the start of the year, but has regressed in his last three outings including twice over 7f on turf (handicap debut last time); drops again in trip and although this is an uncompetitive race he still has something to prove.

Consistent efforts (form figures 4322) at about 1m on AW/turf, second of three runners at Pontefract (soft) most recently; shapes as if this drop to 7f will suit; leading player at the weights.

Form & Verdict
350,000gns breeze-up 2yo who built on her modest Nottingham debut when beaten half a length into third of five in a Bath novice (5f, good) ten days ago; that's modest form, but she did shape as though an extra furlong would suit and she is open to further progress; tongue-tie given a go.

350,000gns breeze-up 2yo; could be on a fair mark for handicap debut given the RPR she posted when close up in a 6f maiden at Brighton latest (good to firm; first-time tongue-tie); unraced on the AW but strongly considered.

Sprint-bred filly who was bought for 350,000gns at a breeze-up last April but made an underwhelming debut when fourth of five at Nottingham (5f, good to soft) last month and needs to take a big step forward here.

Showed some promise in two starts over 6f on the AW last autumn; handicaps beckon, but she wouldn't need to find much more to figure in this field if ready to go after eight months off.

In the frame in three of her six starts for Ed Walker, the latest when a close third in a handicap at Wolverhampton (6f, AW; first-time cheekpieces) in January, but beaten a long way into fifth of six on stable debut in a Yarmouth novice (6f, soft; first-time visor) 12 days ago; may have needed it but enough to prove.

Had placed form for Ed Walker but down the field in both her runs for this yard, last time finishing well adrift of Felicity; prospects should be brighter back in a handicap and she ran well when tried in cheekpieces (which now replace a visor) once before.
