Form & Verdict

In fine form on the AW at the start of the year, winning six times over 7f-1m2f; seemed to have no issue with the trip when second of ten behind an improver in a 0-90 contest over C&D early last month; should appreciate the return to these conditions after failing to stay 14.5f at Doncaster three weeks ago and looks a major player.

Four wins on turf this year but she is at least as effective on Tapeta with five wins (three of them over C&D); quiet the last twice but respected back at this venue and no surprise to see a big run.

Won four times on turf earlier in the year and is fully effective around here, with her record over C&D reading 13317125; looked unlucky not to go much closer when beaten less than 3l into fifth of eight here last time and with a clearer passage she ought to make her presence felt.

Five-time Tapeta winner who finished well to go close at Newcastle (1m4f) on her penultimate run and didn't get much luck there last time; goes back up in trip but her last two wins have been at 1m5f and she's only 1lb higher than for last success; interesting contender.

8yo whose losing run goes back 19 races to May 2021 and he was merely mid-division at Southwell (1m4f, AW) last time; however, he has a patchy record on AW and has run some good races on turf this term, including when third at Thirsk (1m4f, soft) two starts ago; possible player off career-low mark.

Has done her racing over further, mainly round Kempton, the scene of her only win (1m3f); competitive off this mark over the winter, latterly in cheekpieces (hung left in them each time), but will want a good test which is no certainty in a small field.

Form & Verdict

First win away from Ayr came narrowly at Musselburgh (1m6f, good) in July and he returned to form when second of 12 back at Ayr (1m5f, good) 13 days ago; the stiff track should suit but this will be his AW debut, so not quite sure what to expect.

Completed a four-timer on turf (1m2f-11.6f) in the summer of 2020 and added a success here (1m2f) in March; 4lb lower now but below his best lately and the application of cheekpieces (retained today) made little difference last time; Khatm may be the stable's main hope.
