Smart Stat: 25% - Andrea Atzeni's strike rate at NOTTINGHAM
This looks a competitive handicap but Savrola should have more to offer after just six career starts. He showed improved form to open his account on handicap debut at Haydock in July, and still looked ahead of his mark when narrowly denied at Windsor next time, likely to have made a real race of it with the winner had he not encountered some trouble in running. He bumped into one who was completing a six-timer at Newmarket last time, proving his stamina for this trip, and he remains a horse to be positive about from this sort of mark.
Smart Stat: 16% - George Scott's strike rate with handicap debutants
Shin Saw Gyi has run to a similar level on all three starts so far, very green on her debut at Chelmsford in January, but showing plenty to work on by the end of the race. She failed to progress as expected on her next start, but left the impression she was still learning on the job, and she again shaped encouragingly on her first start since leaving Archie Watson over six furlongs at this course 12 days ago. That was her first start for eight months, so she is entitled to take a step forward now, and represents a yard that do well with horses in handicaps. Shin Saw Gyi leaves the impression the step up to seven furlongs should also be in her favour, too.

Blazeon Five remains a maiden, but she has bits and pieces of form that make her of interest, notably her runner-up effort to a now-useful sort at Goodwood last season. She wasn't at her best at Leicester last month, but left the impression she is still in form, and she is bred to relish this step up in trip. The booking of Tom Marquand also catches the eye, and she is expected to make a bold bid from a career-low mark.
