9st 6lb

J: Darragh Keenan

T: John Ryan

Some creditable efforts over 2m this year and he wasn't far behind Red Flyer in a Class 2 over C&D (sixth of 13) last time; his losing run is mounting up but he's edging down the weights and could go well on this drop back in grade.

9st 9lb

J: Luke Morris

T: John Ryan

took keen hold, in touch with leaders, headway over 3f out, soon outpaced, rallied from 2f out, kept on inside final furlong, went third towards finish, not pace to challenge

J: Oisin Murphy

T: John Ryan

Had wind surgery (his second) and gelding operation prior to Kempton reappearance in race won by Red Flyer, seeming to need the run; likely to fare better this time and he is a C&D winner.

J: Robert Havlin

T: John Ryan

Ended 2023 out of form; now returns after being gelded and having a second breathing operation; only 2lb higher than for his most recent win but others have less to prove.
