Form & Verdict

Often takes a keen hold, but nonetheless has been in fine form on the AW since last summer including four wins, three of them at this track (1m3f/1m4f); beaten just over 2l into third of seven behind Let Her Loose over 1m3f here a fortnight ago and now 4lb better off; likely to figure again.

Took a while to find his feet but has had a cracking winter, winning three of his last four starts; all four were at this track and over 1m3f or 1m4f; has 5lb penalty for his win one week ago but today's opposition has plenty of questions to answer.

Took a while to find his feet but he has thrived this winter, scoring twice over 1m3f here and running a career best when second over C&D three weeks ago; that form looks solid, with the winner going in again here on Tuesday, and he looks a big player again off just 2lb higher.

In good form on the AW since last autumn and showed this trip was within range when winning narrowly over C&D in December; has run well in three starts at Wolverhampton since (9.5f/1m4f), but needs a little more in order to defy this mark.

Only 1lb higher than for his 1m4f win here last March; low-key return to action (after 232 days off) at Lingfield four weeks ago but he took a good step forward with his reappearance behind him last winter and the same is quite possible here; each-way claims.

Seems to have taken well to this surface and did it in game style when successful over 1m3f here a fortnight ago; 3lb rise looks fair and she's won over this far on turf; respected

Down the field in four runs for Peter Chapple-Hyam over 6f-1m in 2019 and was returning from 802 days off when sixth of 12 on stable debut at Kempton (7f, Polytrack) in January; that wasn't a bad effort and there is some stamina in her pedigree with this much longer trip in mind, but others look much more solid; cheekpieces now given a go.
