Titled Gent is going the right way, improving again when following up maiden win in a C&D nursery in August. Had plenty in hand that day and one to take seriously again, despite 8 lb rise.
Jollification got off the mark second attempt at Salisbury (5f) in June. Better form when fourth in a 6f Group 3 next time, but underperformed since, including in a nursery last month
Agerzam showed a good turn of foot to scoot clear of a next-time-out winner when opening account over C&D recently. Useful prospect who has to be taken seriously now going handicapping.
Excel Yourself added to polytrack win in June when scraping home in a 6f Leicester nursery in September. Likely to run her race again, but vulnerable against some progressive types here
Black Monk made all when getting off the mark at Chester (7f) in August. Just as good when second in a 7f Yarmouth nursery last month, but higher mark/shorter trip could prove his downfall again here
The Art of Racing stepped up markedly on debut form when seeing off a couple of next-time-out winners at York (5.4f) in September. More to come now handicapping and another that commands respect.
Uncomplicated deservedly off mark in 5f Yarmouth maiden in July and good third in a Sandown nursery next time. Well held since, though, and no easy task to bounce back on first try at 6f.
Cappadocia got up late when landing a C&D nursery in September. Further progress when second off this mark at Wolverhampton (7f) last time, but at the mercy of speedier sorts now back sprinting
1. Titled Gent
3. The Art of Racing
Timeform View: Competitive stuff, but Titled Gent, Agerzam and The Art Of Racing are potentially well ahead of their current marks and the trio are preferred in that order.
