Age: 3
Weight: 8-13
OR: 98
Days: 23

It took Tippy Toes a good few goes to get off the mark beaten in her first five outings, things just weren’t quite clicking despite running well in defeat multiple times.

She finally got his head in front over 6 furlongs at Chelmsford in a low grade affair. She managed to back up that victory despite a penalty over the same track and trip to round out her season.

Returning to racing this season she showed she’s come on as a 3 year old and scored a listed race over 6 furlongs again at Chelmsford.

Winning with a good chunk in hand, her best runs have come on the all weather at Chelmsford. She has to prove she’s as effective on turf.

Caturra

Age: 3
Weight: 9-2
OR: 110
Days: 31

Churned out 8 times as a 2 year old, Caturra gained plenty of experience racing last term and picked up three wins.

Scoring a novice event over 5 furlongs the colt then managed to capture listed honours over 6 furlongs in a tight finish at Newbury.

He handled a drop in trip and a step up in grade when winning the Flying Childers Stakes at Doncaster back in September.

He returned to action last month over at Chantilly and was a narrowly beaten favourite in a group 3 over 5.5 furlongs.

He should shape better here with a prep run in the books.

Flaming Rib

Age: 3
Weight: 9-2
OR: 109
Days: 15

Another for Hugo Palmer who started life with Dascombe. Flaming Rib scored a novice at the start of last season before struggling for a bit of form for a few runs.

He found success in handicap company and rose the ranks with ease in handicap company before scoring a listed race at the end of the campaign.

Outclassed and hanging right in the Greenham stakes saw him come home last of seven but he bounced right back to score a conditions race at Chester when last seen.

He needs to prove he’s able to mix it at this level.

El Caballo

N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-2
OR: 107
Days: 36

A debut loss to the well touted Armor is the only defeat suffered by El Caballo. He quickly got off the mark in style at the second time of asking and followed up on the all weather after a long break from racing.

He’s already won three times this season. Capturing a conditions race at Newcastle before an easy listed win over 7 furlongs at Lingfield.

Last seen winning a conditions stakes at Newcastle again, the form being boosted by the 2nd since. He looks like a smart prospect who’s bang in form.

Wings Of War

Weight: 9-2
OR: 109
Days: 24

Losing his debut in a novice over 5 furlongs, moving up in trip to 6 furlongs unlocked improvement for Wings Of War as he scored easily in a maiden at Nottingham.

Narrowly beaten by Ever Given in the Premier Yearling Stakes, he was then narrowly touched off in a group 3 at Kempton after that. However he showed his class when scoring a group 2 victory in this last outing of the season at Newbury.

Well beaten behind Go Bears Go at Ascot last time out, he should shape better for the run but has something to find with that rival.

Go Bears Go

Weight: 9-2
OR: 111
Days: 24

A brilliant 2 year old for David Loughnane last season, Go Bears Go was a narrow 2nd to Perfect Power in the Norfolk Stakes before going on to score the Railway Stakes over at the Curragh.

Unable to follow that up in the Phoenix Stakes, he failed to win subsequently last season but put in a smart showing to be 2nd at the breeders cup over an inadequate 5 furlongs.

Winning a group 3 on seasonal comeback, he looks as good as ever and should be right in the mix.

Ever Given

J: Daniel Tudhope

N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-2
OR: 107
Days: 17

During his time with Tom Dascombe last season, Ever Given ran 8 times and managed to pick up four wins.
Scoring a novice on debut, he then found success in handicap ranks before scoring in the Premier Yearling Stakes at York.

Listed level looked outside of his capabilities at the end of last season but he came back to the turf at Chester earlier this month with a handicap win.

Now under the care of Hugo Palmer he looks to have taken a step forward as a 3 year old and could get in the mix.

OR: 105
Days: 20

Kevin Ryan’s charge was beaten in a decent maiden last season but scored in a conditions race nicely to get off the mark.

Stepping up to group company thereafter left him a little exposed but he did run well behind Lusail at York to be a well beaten 2nd.

Sent off even money favourite for his comeback run this season, he disappointed and only beat one rival home over 5 furlongs at Hamilton.

Looking outpaced the return to 6 furlongs to suit more.

J: Tom Marquand
T: Brian Meehan
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 8-13
OR: 103
Days: 197

Only successful once last season, Vertiginous managed to break her maiden in listed company.

Failing to win in her first five outings of the season, she ran well in a group 2 for fillies before being overturned as a 1/3 favourite.

She bounced back from that to score a listed race at Ayr over 5 furlongs. Last seen running at the Breeder’s Cup she went well enough to finish mid division in the Juvenile Turf Sprint.

She needs to prove she’s of the quality to get involved here on seasonal comeback.

OR: N/A
Days: 308

Only seen twice for Ger Lyons, Beauty Inspire showed the same precocious nature as her sire Mehmas to win both of her outings as a juvenile.

Scoring a maiden easily she then moved up to group 3 company and scored at prohibitive odds over 6.5 furlongs at the Curragh.

Not seen since last summer it remains to be seen if she’s trained on as a 3 year old and has the fitness to tackle this group 2 event in her first outing.

Days: 20

A winner of a maiden on his first outing, Edward Cornelius failed to kick on from that victory and didn’t manage to win another race as a 2 year old. However, he did run well in defeat a few times in low level affairs.

He looked well out of his depth in listed contests towards the end of the season but returned to form when winning a handicap last month on seasonal comeback.

Beaten in a conditions race last time out, he looks to have some improvement to find to be competitive here.
