Form & Verdict

All four wins have been over 6f at Newcastle (Tapeta), including in his last two starts; had very little in hand in a classified event on Friday and now goes back up in trip but this tough 8yo is on a roll and he's effective over 7f; strongly respected in hat-trick bid.

Six-time winner over C&D and twice placed over the same trip in January; should appreciate the return to 6f after three ordinary efforts over 7f and although he hasn't won a handicap in two years, he can't be dismissed entirely; stable also runs Little Red Dancer.

Form & Verdict

Seven-race maiden with a mixed record; faded into fifth at Chelmsford last time but a switch back to more prominent tactics may have backfired and that was after a close third over C&D on her reappearance last month; now returns to Tapeta and has claims if she can recapture her penultimate form.

Has run well in all three visits here and did it nicely when winning a 0-55 handicap over C&D early last month; may have gone even closer with a clear run when fourth of nine in a 0-60 at Newcastle last time (winner has gone in again since) and very much respected back at this level.

Went close at Southwell (7f) last month and she found more progress back at 6f when getting off the mark (ninth attempt) there 18 days ago; finished well to score with authority in that race and a 3lb rise for that success looks fair; big player.

Three 7f AW wins for Stuart Kittow (one on Tapeta), but he's been quiet in six runs for his current yard since August; was never involved in a classified event at Wolverhampton last time and needs to significantly raise his game.
