Form & Verdict

Veteran who retains a good chunk of ability; won C&D handicaps in November/December then ran well at Southwell and had excuses (inadequate trip, tough task) in 1m2f conditions race last time; defied higher marks in his younger days.

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.

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.

Form & Verdict

Has form figures of 212 since joining Brian Ellison, the win gained in comfortable fashion at Southwell; went very close in Class 2 handicap there last time; 2lb rise is offset by Harry Russell's 3lb claim; still has low mileage and looks open to further progress; respected.

Landed the rescheduled November Handicap here (off 4lb lower) in 2023 and has largely remained in decent form since; however, has a much poorer strike-rate than many of these opponents.

String of solid efforts over middle distances on Tapeta, including when winning the rearranged November Handicap off a 3lb lower mark at Newcastle last backend; nothing wrong with his latest second and he looks set to go well once more.

Two of his three wins have come here including a game success in the rescheduled November handicap over this trip (three of these behind); things haven't really panned out his way in two starts over 1m2f/2m back here since, but much respected down in grade.

Below best at Lingfield last month but could well bounce back, having proved largely consistent in handicaps otherwise for current yard; beaten narrowly off this mark at Kempton three runs ago; acts on Polytrack, now switches to Tapeta.

Acts on good to firm and good to soft; very productive and progressive for Adam Nicol in the last two and a half years and won last term on the two times he's gone up to 2m2f; this season he won a good 1m6f handicap at Musselburgh before his second of six to Coltrane here (2m) on first attempt at a Group race; while the latter was his best form, he received 5lb from the winner and was beaten 5l, which adds up to a tough task today.

Won three of his four starts here and was short-headed in the other; also won three of his last four races in 2022, showing his effectiveness at 1m6f and 2m2f; raised another 4lb since latest start but has a solid first-time-out record and was on a major roll when last seen; shortlisted.

Form & Verdict

Unsuited by drop back to 9.4f on final 3yo start; has shown improved form with two comfortable wins over C&D this year and remains highly unexposed at about 1m4f; likely to progress again and cope with his new mark upped further in grade; big player.

Gained back-to-back wins at Newcastle (1m4f, Tapeta) in January but disappointed in his hat-trick bid over the same C&D last month; still lightly raced and pedigree offers hope that this much longer trip will be within range, but he does need to put that latest effort behind him.

Turf winner over 7f as a 2yo and runner-up in her last two starts on the AW including when less than 2l behind Viola at Southwell (1m3f, Tapeta) last month; didn't convince with her head-carriage there, though, and she is drawn wider than ideal; stable also runs Enfranchise.
