Form & Verdict

Not the most consistent of sprinters over the years but he still has seven wins to his name, and one of them came in last year's "Dash" over C&D (good to soft; firmer is fine too); he should be spot-on today after two pipe-openers, and the headgear and tongue-strap return for the first time this season; the excellent Harry Davies is a positive booking; plenty in his favour.

Losing run up to 22, but runner-up on consecutive days last week, firstly in a similar contest to this at Chelmsford (6f, Tapeta) and then a 0-55 handicap at Yarmouth (6f, good); should go well again, but others preferred for the win.

Form & Verdict

Three 5f/6f wins in 2021, putting up his best effort when scoring at Wolverhampton in the autumn; he returns to action off a 5lb higher mark so another personal best may be required, but his stable is going well and Benoit De La Sayette's 7lb claim is very generous; not ruled out.

Form & Verdict

9yo, lightly raced of late; returned from a 14-month absence to win at Windsor (5f, good to firm) last autumn, and his only subsequent run probably came too soon after that; clearly goes well fresh and has a solid record at Epsom, winning this race in 2019 (beat Dark Shot a neck); shortlisted.

Front-runner who led for most of the way when beating Dark Shot narrowly in this race 12 months ago (good ground) and scored again over C&D last summer; he's not run to form in two outings so far this year but Epsom brings out the best in him so no surprise if he makes his presence felt.

Tough campaigner who won twice last season and made the frame on seven other occasions; beaten only a neck off this mark at Wolverhampton (5f) on his final start and he should be thereabouts if ready to roll after six months off; good ground or firmer suits him well.
