Gelded following a trio of low-key efforts at 2 yrs and immediate improvement when second in 4-runner Bath handicap upped to this trip on return last week. Solid chance off the same mark.

Has shown ability without managing to land a blow in 3 starts at up to 1½m. Entirely possible that he'll be seen in a better light now handicapping and faced with a stiffer test.
Found some improvement for the step up to 1½m when third of 10 on handicap bow at Salisbury (good). Shapes as though this new trip will be within range and couldn't rule out in an open-looking race.

Stepped up on debut effort when second in a 4-runner Yarmouth maiden (11.5f, good to firm) in April. Below par next time, but worth another chance now pitched into a handicap and upped in trip.
Plenty of promise when a very close third on 2-y-o debut at Newbury, but she hasn't gone on as hoped since, for all that she wasn't entirely disgraced on return/handicap bow at Windsor (11.4f, heavy).

Hasn't cut a great deal of ice in a trio of 1m/1¼m minor events, and significant step forward needed now upped in trip for this handicap debut.
Decent third in a 12-runner Lingfield maiden (1m, AW) in January, but that is very much a standout effort (no impact in a couple of handicaps since).

Preference is for GYENYAME, for whom there are absolutely no stamina doubts following his solid reappearance effort upped to this trip at Bath last week. Lawmans Blis took a step forward last time and is not discounted, but the selection may have most to fear from Ballantruan, who is likely to appreciate this stiffer test and his opening mark looks fair.
