Form & Verdict

Ended a long losing run when making all over C&D four weeks ago and he made it 2-3 for Daniel Steele when following up at Kempton last time; up another 3lb but he remains well treated on old form and is strongly respected in hat-trick bid.

OR: 62

Form & Verdict

Has a patchy record but she's well treated on her peak form and returned from a short break with a good third at Newcastle (5f; second-time cheekpieces) two weeks ago; that was behind an odds-on rival and looks interesting if she can build on that with a visor now tried.

Form & Verdict

Tactically versatile 9yo, who ended last year with a C&D win and he's held his form in three runs since; takes a big drop back in grade after his third in a Class 4 at Wolverhampton last time and he's respected with blinkers back on.

Now a 12yo but he went close over C&D two starts back and appeared to be undone by the sharp 5f when fifth of six at Lingfield last time; not easy to rule him out.

Form & Verdict

Won three times (5f-7f) for his new connections in December/January and he got back to form with a third at Wolverhampton (6f) last Saturday; looks weighted near his best off this sort of mark but he's not ruled out back at the scene of his last win.

Form & Verdict

Two placed efforts in 5f Polytrack handicaps in the autumn but she's not threatened in last two starts; may have needed the run over C&D four weeks ago but was almost 6l behind The Defiant and that took her record to 0-8; others more persuasive.

Inconsistent type with a record of 1-15 but he's finished placed over C&D in two of his last three runs including a close third in a Class 5 event last time; has good draw after a short break and he's respected on this drop back in grade.

Was never nearer than at the finish when runner-up in sole C&D run, a handicap in October, and has continued in form at this level elsewhere since (checked in his run on latest); unlikely to be far away.

Infrequent winner but he comes here on the back of two good runs, latterly a close third in a similar race over C&D; this might be a touch more competitive but he's still a key player.

All-the-way wins in two Brighton handicaps (5.3f) last season but she didn't fire in her final two runs last term; has something to prove after 233 days off and she's untried on Polytrack.
