Twice-raced maiden. 14/1, still needed experience when fifth of 6 in maiden at Chester (7f, good to soft) 82 days ago.
Showed improved form to get off the mark at the second attempt in 7-runner novice at this C&D (firm) 18 days ago by 1¼ lengths from Libby, pushed out. Stall 12 not ideal but should have more to offer.
Twice-raced maiden. Ran below debut form when sixth of 9 in maiden at this C&D (good to firm) 17 days ago.
Caught the eye when fifth of 10 in 7f novice event (150/1) at Thirsk (7f, good) 11 days ago, never nearer. Open to further improvement.
Looked one more for the longer term judged on last month's debut at Haydock.

28/1, offered little when sixth of 8 in novice event at Newcastle (7.1f) on debut 26 days ago, slowly away.

Foaled February 25. Mondialiste gelding. Dam, ungenuine 6f-1m winner, half-sister to useful winner up to 1m Snow Bay out of useful 2-y-o 6f/7f winner Goodwood Blizzard.
Well held in novice event at Redcar (7f, good to firm) on debut 18 days ago.

Held back by inexperience when fifth of 9 in C&D maiden (good to firm) on debut 17 days ago, missing break. Can do better.
|29/08/21||Beverley||5/9||Flat||7f 96y||Gd/Frm||9st 1lbs||Dougie Costello||32||►|
Offered something to work when fourth of 9 in C&D maiden (good to firm) on debut 17 days ago, slowly away. Entitled to progress.

LIBBY shaped well behind the penalised Piastrella over C&D 18 days ago, and given she's a big, unfurnished filly, there should be plenty more to come, so she's taken to get the better of that rival this time around. Albegrey caught the eye at Thirsk and is open to further improvement, while Cubanista is likely to have learnt plenty from his initial outing and shouldn't be overlooked either.
