Recorded successive victories last July, winning 3-runner event on nursery debut at Thirsk (7f). In and out after, though latest second in this headgear at Doncaster was decent, albeit no match for Maximilian Caesar.

Opened his account with something in hand at Pontefract in September. Much improved when following up on nursery debut at Newbury (6f, heavy) 5 weeks later and respectable return when fourth at Goodwood. Longer trip should suit and needs considering.

Had a solid juvenile campaign and relished the testing conditions to run out a wide-margin winner in handicap at Doncaster on return. 9 lb rise looks fair and won on fast ground as a 2-y-o, so should make another bold bid.

Fairly useful 7f juvenile winner who resumed after 7 months off/gelded with an excellent second of six in 7.5f Beverley handicap. However, didn't impress with head carriage when fourth at Haydock 2 weeks ago.

Put his experience to good use to open his account at the fourth attempt at Haydock (1m, heavy) and took his form to another level when making a winning return at Newmarket (soft) on handicap bow, again making all and beating a subsequent winner. High on shortlist.

Expensive breeze-up acquisition who opened her account at the second time of asking in a novice at Ayr (7.2f) in August. Never landed a blow in the Rockfel Stakes at Newmarket before no show in Nell Gwyn there on return. Opening mark looks plenty high enough.

Looked promising when winning 7f novice event at Kempton in September on his final run for Sir Michael Stoute. Changed hands for 200,000gns but disappointed when only fifth in 1m Redcar novice on return. However, much better when sixth on handicap bow here (7f) 10 days ago and longer trip will suit.

Promise when fourth of 13 in a backend Newmarket maiden and, having been gelded during the winter, improved when landing a 7f Lingfield maiden (AW) on return in March. Not disgraced in a warm class 2 at Goodwood since but opening mark demands more.
