Well-backed 3-1, went on over 1f out when winning six-runner novice at Leicester (5f, heavy) three weeks ago, well on top final 1f; bred for much further than that; the form has taken some knocks but that was an authoritative debut from top yard which had four entries for this race.

Favourite for both starts, leading final 1f in Brighton maiden (5.3f, good to firm) and making all in clearcut style at Kempton (5f, AW); more to do but he's the selected from strong yard which had five entries.

Bred to sprint and stepped up on promising 5f debut (soft) when tenacious from the front at Newmarket recently (6f, good); second didn't do much for the form on Friday and the fourth Red Island is likely to come on for his debut and be a threat but another big run expected under penalty.

Fulfilled the promise of her debut third (when tardily away) to Strings Of Life at Newmarket when winning decisively at Salisbury (heavy) last time; that represents decent early-season form and not discounted on different surface now, even though more is needed again.

Got a little bit behind early and was denied a clear run when fifth of seven, beaten just under 3l, on recent debut at Doncaster (5f, good; 8-1); this half-brother to four winners could be a lot sharper today and top trainer won this last year with one showing improvement on their second start.

Trainer made a bright start with 2yos and this one, who's bred to be sharp, showed the right attitude to beat a subsequent winner a fortnight ago; experienced 5lb claimer pulls back the penalty and decent chance of following up.
