Form & Verdict

Made a bit of a meal of landing short odds in a 1m4f conditions event here on his AW debut in September but a reproduction of his best turf efforts (Listed winner at 2 and runner-up twice over 1m2f at Group 3 level last summer) would make him a tough nut to crack.

Form & Verdict

0-3 on Polytrack compared to an impressive 6-9 on Tapeta, including very useful efforts to win handicaps over 1m3f/1m4f on his last three starts; however, those Polytrack defeats came at the start of his career for another trainer so it could be dangerous to assume that subsequent improvement has been entirely surface-related; travels strongly enough to think he can prove fully effective back over this shorter trip.

J: Jamie Spencer

T: William Knight

Ultra-consistent sort whose seven wins have all come on Tapeta (record here reads 1121311); doesn't have much to find with the Gosden pair on these terms and his record on the surface makes him hard to dismiss, but a suspicion that further suits him better these days.

Form & Verdict

Useful performer on turf and AW; got his head back in front when making all in a small field at Pontefract (1m2f) in September and has recorded creditable thirds in handicaps at Chelmsford (1m2f) and here (1m4f) since; can be expected to give his running but he does have a little bit to find on the figures.

Form & Verdict

Only 1-6 on turf but he took his AW record to 4-4 when making all in 1m2f Newcastle conditions event on his return for new trainer Archie Watson last month; this is tougher but he's still likely to make a bold bid to remain unbeaten on AW.

Group 3 winner as a juvenile and repeated the feat when seeing off subsequent Group 1 runner-up Albaflora in the Musidora at York (extended 1m2f) in the summer of her 3yo campaign; the issue is she hasn't been seen finishing third in a 1m4f German Group 2 in September 2020; also yet to tackle AW; interesting to see what the betting makes of her.
