KITAABY got checked early on last time at Haydock which cost him a length or two. He has progressed again since that run, and we are expecting him to run another great race.
FOX TROTTER ran well last time on his seasonal reappearance and has come on nicely since then. The return to softer going should be of benefit, and he is expected to go close under our stable jockey Jimmy Fortune.

MANCINELLO has shown a good amount of ability at home and is ready to run, although he is likely to improve from the experience.
CHRISTCHURCH ran a great race on debut at Newbury that was won by what looks to be a smart horse. He has improved physically for the outing, we think he is a smart horse, and he should run a big race tomorrow.
OCEAN JIVE has improved from his debut effort at Salisbury and this should be evident tomorrow. The step up in trip will help and hopefully he will run well tomorrow.
TIHANA gets the application of first time blinkers tomorrow in her quest to win her maiden. Hopefully they will do the trick and help her to run a big race.
RIDE THE LIGHTNING progressed massively from his debut to his second run and has been working nicely at home. He should run a big race under Tom Queally.
ETIBAAR ran well last time at Lingfield, beaten only by a smart horse, and he was fourteen lengths clear of the third. He has progressed since that run and we are expecting him to run a good race.
ET TOI is held in high regard at home and has ran well in two strong maidens. The step up in trip will suit and he carries strong yard confidence that he will be hard to beat.
CAPTAINTHUNDERBOLT ran his best race to date stepped up in trip last week at Kempton, and returns over the same course and distance today. He came out of his race well, and we are hopeful of another good run.
