Stepped up on debut effort when second in a 4-runner Yarmouth maiden (11.5f, good to firm) in April. Below par next time, but worth another chance now pitched into a handicap and upped in trip.

Plenty of promise when a very close third on 2-y-o debut at Newbury, but she hasn't gone on as hoped since, for all that she wasn't entirely disgraced on return/handicap bow at Windsor (11.4f, heavy).

Gelded following a trio of low-key efforts at 2 yrs and immediate improvement when second in 4-runner Bath handicap upped to this trip on return last week. Solid chance off the same mark.

Has shown ability without managing to land a blow in 3 starts at up to 1½m. Entirely possible that he'll be seen in a better light now handicapping and faced with a stiffer test.

Decent third in a 12-runner Lingfield maiden (1m, AW) in January, but that is very much a standout effort (no impact in a couple of handicaps since).

Found some improvement for the step up to 1½m when third of 10 on handicap bow at Salisbury (good). Shapes as though this new trip will be within range and couldn't rule out in an open-looking race.

Hasn't cut a great deal of ice in a trio of 1m/1¼m minor events, and significant step forward needed now upped in trip for this handicap debut.
