6f specialist and unbeaten in two previous visits to this track (good to soft both times; won his novice on soft), including for his final success in October 2021 off this very mark; made a quiet debut for this yard at Newmarket last April after 211 days away and now returns from another absence; needs to be as good as he was but has a decent record fresh and could be interesting.

Won French Group 3 last August and his reduced mark also appeals on the pick of this season's efforts; the step back up to 6f should be in his favour but his claims are hardly compelling judged on recent evidence.

Disappointing at Doncaster three weeks ago and it's hard to be confident on the back of that; however, he was progressive previously, with a C&D win in August being one of four victories since June, and he may bounce back today; has won on good to soft and good to firm; not ruled out.

Won a 7f Wolverhampton novice last November; record of 0-8 since but she's been generally consistent and was runner-up behind a major improver here (7f) 16 days ago; that was eyecatching from off the pace and she's an interesting contender on this step back up in trip.

Wide-margin winner of 7f novice at Wolverhampton as a 2yo; the handicapper has been in the ascendancy this year and she wasn't at her best last time; this race is slightly easier but she has a higher AW mark and others appeal more.

Went close on debut at Salisbury (6f, good to soft) in July and comfortable wins since in a Bath maiden (5.7f, good) and Wolverhampton novice (6f, AW); in a warm race for his handicap debut but has the potential to be better than his opening mark (dam was a Listed winner).

On a hat-trick following 7f wins at Chelmsford (AW) and should be effective over a stiff 6f; however, his two turf runs have been a long way below his peak AW form so he has something to prove now back on grass.

On a hat-trick following 7f wins at Chelmsford (AW) and he is fully effective at 6f too; unfavoured by these terms but he's still on an upward curve and he's potentially very smart on this surface; likely to make a bold bid.
