Form & Verdict

Dropped 15lb since returning to Britain from France (1-1 there) and shaped nicely at Wolverhampton last week, tapped for toe when pace lifted and briefly short of room (well backed in first-time cheekpieces; retained); big player on this step up in trip, if settling, for last year's winning yard.

J: Jonny Peate

T: Gary Moore

Still not always one to break on terms or settle but usually finds his one race a year; 3lb lower now than for last May's Chelmsford 1m2f success, is proven over today's trip and further, and turn may be nearing.

Back-to-back wins here last year, including on this card, and finished off quite well to be beaten less than 3l at Kempton five weeks ago (race has thrown up winners); involved; tongue-tie added to blinkers.

Two course wins (1m2f) in late 2020; ended 2021 with two good runs, notably a close second over C&D last month (front pair 12l clear of the third); runs off the same mark here and should be in the mix once again.

Lightly raced Fibresand winner who is one to watch in the betting on his first run for this yard, having changed hands for 4,000gns in October; however, he was tailed off on his final two runs for Richard Fahey this summer and needs to be an entirely different proposition today.

C&D scorer in 2016 for Amanda Perrett, then won several races during a four-year spell in Jersey; just a modest fourth of five at Lingfield on debut for Daniel Steele and needs to improve on that effort.

Form & Verdict

Seven of top ten RPRs here, one of them over C&D two ago (beaten short head by dead-heaters); subsequent turf defeat shouldn't be judged too harshly but form figures of 00978 off 100+ day break are off-putting.

Five-time winner (once here) who has been out of sorts since returning to action in December; tumbling down the weights as a result and the returning visor could help matters; worth a market check.

Longstanding maiden who has dropped 16lb in the weights this year; hasn't always looked the easiest of rides and it's a long time since he was involved in a finish, so it's tough to find any positives.

Should be making an impact off his reduced mark but that has been the case for a while and he was tailed off at Kempton in October; opposable back in a Class 5.
