Form & Verdict

Took a while to click for this yard but he's flourishing now, winning three times over 6f here last month; latest win came in an weak race for the grade and he's now 4lb higher but he does still have handicapping potential given what he could do in his youth.

Has been through a few yards; completed a hat-trick in Britain for Grant Tuer a year ago; debuts for Gavin Cromwell here and would be a definite player if able to run close to his mark.

Won four in a row at Newcastle for Grant Tuer early in the year, three of them over this trip; not a bad effort over 7f on stable debut; good prospects of reversing form with runner-up Eglish on these terms.

Form & Verdict

Produced late to win over C&D in December off 2lb lower; three creditable efforts in defeat have followed and she should give her running once again; bigger field and strong pace might suit ideally.

Has refused to race three times this year, twice at this track including behind several of these rivals on latest appearance (favourite); she was in a good mood when winning over C&D three days before that but there's no guarantee she'll be in the same frame of mind.

Well beaten in the Lincoln on reappearance but he's never run well on testing ground at Doncaster; has same mark as for close sixth in the Cambridgeshire here (1m, good to soft) last September, when second of seven on the far side, and he could be in the mix.

J: Neil Callan

Produced a string of good runs in competitive handicaps this summer (various ground) and was on the wrong end of a pace bias when sixth of 19 at York (1m, good to firm) two starts ago, having been held up in rear; needs to bounce back from recent blip at Doncaster but he's not written off.

Loves it here, having won six times over 6f and also over C&D; has plummeted in the handicap since the spring of 2022 but finally took advantage when scoring at Southwell (7f, Tapeta) last month; a 4lb rise might make it tough to follow up.

J: Harry Russell

T: Antony Brittain

Six-time course winner (6f/7f) whose losing run is up to 20, but he ran his best race for a while when third of ten at Southwell (7f, Tapeta) a fortnight ago; races off the same mark (24lb lower than for his last win) and each-way claims at least if building on that.

Form & Verdict

Put some lesser efforts behind him when landing 7f handicap at Wolverhampton in December; has generally run to form since, including at Southwell on Tuesday when he had no real excuse; likely vulnerable again.
