Form & Verdict

Three-time winner in Europe; 0-9 for current stable but he's faced some stiff tasks along the way and ran a cracker at York eight days ago, fending off all bar a fast-finishing and well-handicapped winner; 4lb rise fair enough and he's not discounted despite a higher draw than ideal; the softer the ground the better judged on British form.

J: Luke Morris

Had some smart form on slow ground in his prime and having tumbled down the weights he finally capitalised with an impressive win at Doncaster 16 days ago (5f, soft); up 6lb in a better race but the runner-up at Doncaster has since won well and he has conditions to suit; other pace to deal with but he's more appealing than many.

Form & Verdict

Good second at the Dante meeting at York; took advantage of a drop in the weights when landing 5.5f handicap at Chester in August; failed to beat a rival in the Ayr Gold Cup but that stiff test at 6f wouldn't be his cup of tea; draw could have been kinder today but he has the ability to make an impact.

Over two years since the last of his seven wins; ran well at Chester on penultimate start (6f, good to soft); down on his nose when the stalls opened back at that track two weeks ago and that wouldn't be the run to judge him on; handy draw if getting it right at the start today.

Front-runner who had dropped a long way in the weights when only just caught by Gabrial The Devil here (6f, good to soft) three weeks ago; closely matched with that rival and soft ground not an issue, but he is usually seen over further these days and is likely to face competition for the lead.
