Form & Verdict

Twice beaten at short prices since his 1m win in December but nothing wrong with his latest third; had a bit on at the weights that day but is one of the best in tonight, so his claims are obvious, albeit he'll need to settle better over this longest trip to date.

Solid second from the front in a classified seller over the extended 1m here last time (refitted blinkers replaced a visor) and is best in at the weights tonight; holds leading claims.

Just 2-33 and his two narrow defeats here earlier this year (8.6f/9.5f) came in a classified seller and a classified claimer; dropping back to this trip ought to suit, though, and he could play a part.

Form & Verdict

Frustrating maiden who's been turned over as favourite four times (all round here); first-time headgear didn't help last time (retained), he didn't appear to see out this trip in one previous try and has got something to find at the weights.

Best recent effort when third of six in a claimer here (9.5f) on penultimate start and not disgraced when fourth of 12 in first-time blinkers at Kempton (1m, Polytrack) latest, record now 0-17, though, and the switch to cheekpieces will need to bring about something extra.

Form & Verdict

Has been running over 1m4f lately, including when second in a small-field claimer here four days ago; would have been a lot better off with Vocatus in a handicap and the returning cheekpieces (well held in one previous try) need to make a difference.

Best on Fibresand and has never been consistent; will need to improve somewhat on his last two runs here (said to have run flat in December) if he's to win this and Vocatus looks his trainer's best chance.

Went backwards in Ireland last summer and has run badly in two starts for this yard, hanging right at Chelmsford before a poor effort here in blinkers (removed); takes another step up in trip and is hard to recommend.

Displayed ability at up to 1m in Ireland as a 3yo; struggled in four starts for Tom Clover though and was never going the gallop over 6f on his stable debut in September; tumbling down the weights and returning to 1m looks a plus; goes without accessories today.
