Polly's Gold wasn't the strongest of finishers on turf for Richard Hughes last year but she has plenty of placed form and should be able to pick up some prize-money here on her first start for Karen George. However, winning may once again be beyond her and preference is for POWER AND PEACE whose latest Kempton third over 7f sets the standard in what looks a weak maiden. She shapes as though this drop back to 6f will suit and can get off the mark at the fourth attempt unless one of the newcomers proves above average. [Kevin Morley]

Stayed on well for fourth over 6f on turf here on her debut last June; bettered that slightly upped to 7f when placing on her next two starts in novices at Wetherby and Kempton, while giving the impression this drop back to 6f would suit; three-month absence but she sets the standard and may prove tough to beat.

Stronger claims than most judged on her form for Richard Hughes, for whom she placed in four of her six starts last year (6f-7f, all turf novices); since bought for 5,000GBP by current connections; never looked the strongest of finishers and is returning from four months off but still disappointing if she couldn't make an impact here on her AW debut.

Second in a 5f Wolverhampton novice on his debut last month but that was a weak event and he couldn't build on that when sixth over the same track and trip next time; a place is possible on this step up to 6f but winning looks tough.

Foal price of 72,000USD dropped to 15,000GBP as a 2yo; half-brother to a winner in Mexico; dam unraced half-sister to Canadian 8.5f turf stakes winner Bear's Pride; yard capable of the odd debut winner (8% with 3yo newcomers last five seasons) so not ignored; yard also sends out Darkest Light; market will give clues.

4,000GBP yearling purchase; dam unraced half-sister to useful 5f-6f winner Pixeleen out of 6f 2yo winning half-sister to 5f Group 2 winner Priceless; yard 1-12 with 3yo newcomers last four seasons and he is worth a market check in what doesn't look a strong maiden.

5,000euros yearling; dam 5f 2yo winner (RPR 75), closely related to 5f 2yo Group 3 winner Monsieur Chevalier, half-sister to very useful 6f-7f winner Outback Traveller; yard's newcomers usually need a run (2-34 with first-time-out 3yos last five seasons) but she is of interest if the market speaks favourably.

12-1 and finished a well-held last of nine on debut in 6f Kempton novice in November; retains the tongue-tie he wore on that occasion and can do better at some stage.

Well held on his debut at Kempton in November; stepped up on that slightly when sixth over 7f at Chelmsford last month but will need to come on again to trouble the principals here.

33-1 when seventh of nine in a 1m course novice last month; possible that this drop in trip will be in her favour but it will need to spark a fair amount of improvement if she is to make an impact.
