Form & Verdict

Stays 1m4f but found the Melrose at York (first run at 1m6f) all too much last month; quickly back on track returned to calmer waters when collared only late on in a small field at Carlisle (1m3f, good to firm) 17 days ago; unraced on AW; non-runner 3.45 Haydock Friday.

Form & Verdict

Improving as his stamina is being drawn out, winning over 1m4f at Kempton before keeping on well to follow up over C&D nine days ago; raised another 3lb and in a higher grade now, but he's going the right way.

Took a couple of runs to find his feet after his long absence but he has been placed in each of his last three starts, including here and also over 2m; should run his race again.

Won twice on Polytrack (1m4f/1m6f) in 2021 and was having his third start back from a 15-month absence when second of eight here (1m6f) nine days ago; tackles this far for the first time but respected off the same mark if his stamina holds out.

Form & Verdict

Yet to win but he's promising to put that right soon; edged out by only a next-time-out scorer at Newcastle (12.5f) 19 days ago, pair clear, and looks well treated off 1lb higher, particularly if pulling out a bit more for cheekpieces and a longer trip.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced filly who has won handicaps around 1m4f at Lingfield (turf) and on Kempton's AW in recent months; those in behind at Kempton haven't done much for the form but she's still hard to rule out as she bids for the hat-trick.

Off the mark in a 1m3f soft-ground handicap at Lingfield and followed up from the front at Kempton (1m4f AW) on her promotion to Class 5 level; couldn't cope with another rise in grade and trip at Chelmsford (1m6f Class 4) but this looks more realistic; ran well here on her second start.

Won two handicaps here in recent weeks (including this trip); not in quite the same form when a well-held third over 2m at Musselburgh 13 days ago but he does boast a progressive profile on AW.

Has done well since handicapping, including scoring twice over 1m4f at Epsom this summer; another good run when second over 1m6f at Salisbury last month and he looked set to make a big challenge when hampered inside the final 1f at Lingfield (2m, AW) latest; has to enter the reckoning.
