T: Micky Hammond

Hasn't shone here this winter, following a long absence; however, he wasn't beaten far when seventh of eight over 7f last time and his last two wins (in 2022) came over 1m2f here; not discounted now back up in trip.

Multiple course scorer but he's yet to fire in two 1m handicaps here since returning from a 17-month absence; falling in the weights now though so he's no forlorn hope.

9st 8lb

J: Aiden Brookes

T: Micky Hammond

Four-time winner here (1m/1m2f) and 3lb lower than for the most recent, but finished well behind a couple of these on his return from 512 days off over C&D last month; best watched for now.

Form & Verdict

Decent strike-rate on AW and although touched off over 1m4f here last time (cheekpieces left off, back on now), that represented a career-best effort; big chance from just 1lb higher back in distance.

J: Ben Robinson

T: Brian Ellison

Consistent and steadily progressive on AW; ended his 2021 campaign with wins at this course and Wolverhampton; has done his winning in cheekpieces, which are now removed on reappearance, but has respectable form without headgear; may improve further in 2022 and has to be feared.

Reliable yardstick who broke losing run of just over a year when winning over C&D last time; 2lb rise for that less of an issue that going up a fair way in grade.

Reliable 5yo who has form figures of 23313 on Tapeta in his last five runs; couldn't land a serious blow when third over C&D last time but the steady pace looked against him and he has possibilities if this sets up for his closing style.

Sole win in 11 starts for Jim Bolger came at Gowran Park (9.5f, yielding) last May and she makes her stable debut after 253 days off having changed hands for 4,000euros in November; yard going well, but she may need the run.
