GRAND SCHEME made an encouraging start to his career when fifth on debut at Salisbury, only really getting to grips with the game late on.
He showed much improved form to finish second upped in trip at Goodwood last time, the winner getting first run and just knowing a bit more than him.
He is likely to improve further and should be going one better soon.
IMPULSIVE ONE has made an encouraging start to his career, improving on a promising debut to finish second to an above-average winner at Newmarket last month – before progressing again at Windsor last time, again finding just one too good.
His mark is unchanged after that narrow miss and he is a leading player on that evidence.
MODMIN, who had showed improved form to finish second at Chepstow on his return to action last month, made the most of a good opportunity to run out a ready winner at Goodwood last time. He travelled the best and forged clear over a furlong out, winning by 8 lengths.
There should be more to come from him in handicaps and he gets the vote to go in again.
Fitter for her comeback run, CHIL CHIL looked a filly very much on the up when scoring impressively at Ascot in August, value for extra too given she had to wait for a run from halfway.
She couldn’t repeat that form at Salisbury last time, perhaps just not as effective on the softer ground, but she looked a Listed or even minor pattern level horse at Ascot. She is well worth another chance to get back to that level.
UNION ROSE hadn’t really been showing much, but he got off the mark for the season with an improved effort at Sandown last time. He did well under the circumstances too, winning the race for the second year running.
He’s not one to trust implicitly, but Ron Harris’s yard have really hit form of late and he makes obvious appeal under a penalty.
AQUADABRA returned to form when second at Chepstow back in June, and she has proved in her recent efforts that she remains in good form, though things haven’t always gone her way.
She has been shaping better than the bare result in her last few outings, and considering she is now 1lb lower than her last winning mark, she merits plenty of consideration.
MOOMBA has shaped with plenty of promise in the majority of his five career outings, hitting the frame on three occasions. He was plainly unsuited by the drop back in trip when disappointing at Sandown last time.
He has often shaped as though suited by the emphasis more on stamina, so this step back up in trip is undoubtedly a positive, and with further progress still likely to be in the pipeline, he is the clear one to beat.
