It was a much improved performance from SUMMER THUNDER when she was second as the well-backed favourite on her handicap debut at Kempton last Friday and she's taken to go one better here. There are some interesting handicap newcomers, namely Fortune And Glory, Goodbye Lulu, Gunnar Julius and Shyjack (who is feared most) and market support for any of them would be worth noting. Highly Approved has made the journey from Ireland and is another to consider.[Ben Hutton]

5yo who made belated debut last August and had three maiden runs that month; improved form on third and latest start when a staying-on second on AW debut at Southwell (5f) and attractive pedigree suggests this step up in trip will suit on handicap debut; market check advised back from break.

Back from a break for her handicap debut when very well backed and showing much improved form in second at Kempton (6f, AW) last Friday; every chance she'll build on that run and attractive pedigree suggests this step back up in trip will be fine; big player in first-time cheekpieces.

Improved required to defy opening mark but she did show some ability in her last two maidens (6f, on Polytrack when last seen in October) and this half-sister to three winners has shaped as if she'll be suited by today's extra furlong; all the more interesting if well backed on handicap debut

Always towards the rear on his first three starts at the end of last year (7f, AW) but he's got a decent pedigree and his useful half-brother Shyron found improvement to make a winning handicap debut for this yard back in 2013, when well backed; first-time blinkers may sharpen him up; watch betting.

Having dropped down the weights a case can be made on some of last August's form, but he hasn't been at the top of his game on his last three runs and others here are more compelling; first-time visor replaces cheekpieces.
