Form & Verdict

The winner of four of his eight starts when trained by Roger Charlton, notably a Class 2 handicap at Ascot (1m, good) in September 2020; sent off favourite for the Cambridgeshire later that month and finished a creditable sixth; not seen since running poorly on heavy ground 435 days ago (gelded afterwards); sold for 25,000gns in September; could resume his progress and the betting should be revealing; won his maiden on Tapeta.

J: Luke Morris

T: Archie Watson

Ran respectably behind a few of these rivals over C&D two starts ago but is likely set for another supporting role; the oldest contestant and losing spell goes back to summer 2022.

Form & Verdict

Classy on his day and usually runs in much better races than this; won a similar race over C&D 12 months ago on his return from an absence; looks to have been found a good opportunity.

Form & Verdict

Two handicap wins on Polytrack last month but he had his limitations exposed in Listed company 15 days ago; has the highest BHA mark in the field but suspicion he could prove vulnerable.

J: Billy Loughnane

T: Michael Appleby

Infrequent winner in recent times but he's well handicapped and returned to form with a close third in a higher grade at Kempton (1m); could do with a strong pace to target but he's one for the shortlist.

Form & Verdict

Top-class 2yo but developed fertility issues at stud; never figured in Listed race at Lingfield back from 1876 days on the sidelines but there was some promise when third in 6f handicap at Chelmsford nine days later; first run at 1m and there are stamina concerns.

Top-class 2yo but developed fertility issues at stud; Chelmsford third in November suggests he retains some ability but others in this field have more pressing claims.

J: Jason Hart

T: Mark Johnston

Developed fertility issues at stud; never figured in Listed race at Lingfield nine days ago, his first start since winning the 2016 Middle Park; may be sharper for the comeback run and is well treated on his high-class 2yo form but this should tell us more about how much ability he retains.

Form & Verdict

Peak RPR of 87 when trained by Martyn Meade; first three runs for Scott Dixon have been underwhelming, latest at Southwell yesterday.

T: Scott Dixon

Won a Lingfield handicap (1m, Polytrack) last February but he's generally struggled since, including last of 18 in a 7f course handicap on his penultimate run; remains to be seen if this step up to 1m2f makes a difference.
