Form & Verdict

Made it second time lucky for new yard when making all off reduced mark at Lingfield (7f, Polytrack) 27 days ago; faded when favourite over same C&D last time but he got involved in an early speed duel; has another tough draw but he remains well treated on old form and is a big player if things go to plan.

Form & Verdict

Won this race off 1lb lower last year but he's been generally disappointing since and has been well below form in last two starts (plenty went wrong last time); comes with risks attached but yard amongst the winners and Sean Levey replaces a 7lb claimer; visor the headgear of choice today.

Form & Verdict

Recorded his third win when scoring at Lingfield (7f, Polytrack) in January; reached the frame in next five starts but his form cooled back at Lingfield last time; got involved in a battle up front that day but he looks weighted near best off this sort of mark and others are more persuasive.

5yo who turned things around after a short break with a brave win off a reduced mark at Southwell (7f) 26 days ago; that was in a bunch finish but he's only 1lb higher here and has gone close over C&D in the past; respected.

Form & Verdict

Was only just caught off a tumbling mark at Kempton (1m; cheekpieces added) in January but he failed to repeat that form over same C&D last time; this drop back to 7f should be fine but has bit to prove again with tongue-tie now tried and others are more convincing.

Form & Verdict

Two wins on Tapeta (8.6f/7f) last summer and she's been in good form at Southwell and Newcastle in her last three runs; should get a good pace to aim at back at this trip and she still looks on a workable mark; dangerous.
