Form & Verdict

Has a record of 1-6 on grass, whereas he's 3-3 on AW; was well below form on turf in final three runs for William Haggas but he now returns to AW for new yard (changed hands for 45,000gns in October) and is the clear form pick on his win at Kempton (Polytrack; RPR 112) last March; should be hard to beat if he can get back somewhere near his best after a break.

Prolific winner under both codes, notching up a four-timer over fences on joining this yard last summer; well held on AW Flat return in March but he does have a lower mark on turf.

J: Tom Eaves

T: Sam England

Prolific winner under both codes, latterly notching a four-timer over fences last summer; won first time out between the ages of three and five, so goes well fresh, but this is quite an ask off his AW mark (12lb higher than when well held on turf last spring).

Form & Verdict

Four-time turf winner who returned from another break with a creditable fourth under a positive ride in a Class 2 handicap on his recent AW debut at Southwell (1m3f); today is tougher in this conditions event but he should give it another good shot on this drop back in trip.

Halimi

9st 1lb

J: Harry Burns

T: Simon & Ed Crisford

Ex-Irish 6yo who has run some decent races for his current yard but he hung left when runner-up at Newcastle (1m2f) in January and his form dipped when third of three at Lingfield (1m4f) last time; now 0-9 since his last win in September 2020 and others are more persuasive.

Form & Verdict

Admirable veteran who is a 12-time winner under both codes and was a close third in his hat-trick bid at Southwell (1m3f) 12 days ago; finished one place ahead of Halimi in that race but he meets that rival on worse terms here and has plenty to find with Al Zaraqaan on the figures.

Sir Chauvelin

8st 2lb

J: Amie Waugh

T: Jim Goldie

Similar profile to Rainbow Dreamer, being a veteran who has won multiple races down the years but has a question mark over current form having posted duck eggs in 2024; unlikely to add to his tally.

J: Paul Mulrennan

T: Jim Goldie

Prolific winner who's back on a workable mark; he's well into the veteran stage, though, and this trip is an absolute minimum nowadays; doesn't arrive in form in any case.
