Form & Verdict

Dual Fibresand winner (6f/1m) last winter but, although often in frame, he is on a losing run of 13; not disgraced in recent outings and has dropped 7lb lower than when last successful but he does need to find a bit more.

Has run with credit on Polytrack and on both starts on turf since joining this yard in the summer; down in class but his record of 2-49 is a concern and this will be his first start on Tapeta; others more solid.

Handy sort whose two wins came here (7f/1m) a year ago, the latest from a 1lb lower mark; finished about 3l behind Bringitonboris when sixth of 11 over 1m here seven days ago and meets him on the same terms, but the shorter trip may help and he should go well.

Dual Polytrack winner who probably didn't need to improve to win easily in a Redcar seller (1m, good) nine days ago with the runner-up having a mark of 43; 5lb penalty for that will make life harder back in this handicap and he is passed over.

Has been a regular here down the years, winning seven of his 34 course starts; 5f looked inadequate here last week and returning to this longer trip can help; possible he's just firmly on the downgrade but he's given the benefit of the doubt and could go well.

C&D winner whose losing run is up to 12, but he has finished runner-up in his last three starts at Newcastle (7f, Tapeta) since returning in February, including when beaten a neck by Turbo Command on his penultimate outing; 2lb worse off with that rival, but seems very likely to run his race again.
