Heptathlete was a big eyecatcher on her debut 142 days ago but has another wide draw to contend with and is passed over in favour of SWEET AND DANDY, whose 50-1 C&D win was backed up by a decent time. Haverland and Might Mac are also considered in a tricky contest.[Andrew Mount]

Too green to do himself justice on debut then kept on nicely into close fifth over C&D; tricky draw to overcome but still one of the more obvious ones.

Sent off at just 5-1 when seventh at Kempton on debut then took advantage of favourable draw with 50-1 C&D success; useful draw again and one to consider.

Drawn wide but kept on into close-up 50-1 fourth at Kempton (7f) after running green on debut (badly-berthed third won since); should be winning sooner rather than later but has another tough draw to contend with on return from 142-day break.

Twice shaped well from off the pace at Chelmsford before struggling to land a blow from wide draw in 1m Kempton handicap; not sure return to 6f the answer but nicely drawn and warrants respect in this company.

Hinted at ability with sixth-place finishes at Kempton and here (7f); however, could have been better berthed and more interesting once handicapped.

No great improvement from Newcastle debut effort (6f) when fifth over extra 1f at same venue next time; useful draw but more needed.

Poorly drawn when 100-1 for October's debut at Chelmsford (7f) and always behind after being carried even wider at the start; yard's runners often improve considerably on second run and much better expected this time.

Half-brother to three winners but yard never scored with a newcomer; doubtful this 5yo entire will have a say on debut.

Half-sister to Group 2 scorer Finjaan (RPR 118) and three others winners; yard 0-5 with newcomers and likely best watched unless strong in the market.

Beaten by just under 3l when 100-1 third of four in weak 5f novice contest here latest, taking record to 0-10; surprising if he broke duck.
