Form & Verdict

Most of his best form, including three wins, has come on the Polytack at Chelmsford; on a competitive mark but he will need to step up on Wednesday's Southwell effort if he is to come out on top.

Reliable sort who beat a subsequent dual winner over C&D in January; solid effort dropped to 5f here last time and should give another good account returned to this trip.

Won over 6f here in January; back in that sort of form when second at Chelmsford (6f again) last time; fine at 5f; ought to be competitive but has never won off a mark this high.

Form & Verdict

Won twice on turf for Owen Burrows but a rise in the weights for his Nottingham success last June found him out the next twice; sold for 10,000gns in October; new yard might squeeze a bit more out of him and he needs a look in the betting.

Hard to win with and although he's operating off a reduced mark, he remains vulnerable for win purposes; was staying on over 6f last week but still has something to prove over this far; down in class at least.

Form & Verdict

Always prominent for his three wins in the second half of 2021 (7f and 6f twice); only 1lb higher than for the last of them and he could be refreshed by a three-month break.

7lb lower than when winning at Epsom (6f, good to firm) in July 2022 but weakened to finish a remote fourth (not helped by being hampered by a loose horse but it's only a partial excuse) in that same contest four weeks ago; not an obvious one after that but a career-low mark and the presence of William Buick in the saddle mean he can't be dismissed.

J: Joe Fanning

5lb lower than when winning the corresponding race 12 months ago (good to firm); some fair efforts on AW earlier in the year and perhaps in need of the outing when behind Faro De San Juan at Chester last month; his last three turf wins have come here, at Brighton and Goodwood so undulating tracks clearly no barrier to success; interesting.

Form & Verdict

The addition of a visor saw him run out an easy winner on slow turf in October; been in even better form back on AW more recently, keeping on well to score at Southwell on Wednesday (Nigel Nott back in ninth); big player despite a 5lb penalty.

Form & Verdict

Two wins on the AW at Dundalk when trained by Ger Lyons; handicapper has looked in command in recent starts but he begins life for new yard off a reduced mark; interesting to see if there's any market interest in him.
