J: Rhys Clutterbuck

T: Gary Moore

Creditable third in City And Suburban Handicap over C&D (soft) in April and now 6lb lower but has very mixed record for new stable this season and it's hard to know what to expect from him after last month's poor AW run.

Inconsistent results for new stable this term; respectable second of four at Goodwood (1m4f) most recently but now returns to a deeper field and is 0-5 on AW; not certain to back up latest effort.

Quite useful on Flat up to 1m4f for the Johnstons; may well turn out to be better in this sphere, having twice won easily in 2m novice races at Newbury either side of a close third at Doncaster; 4-11 when he won by a street last time; tries an extra half mile but respected as a good prospect.

Quite a useful Flat performer at up to 1m4f for Mark and Charlie Johnston; beat a dual previous winner with a nice bit in hand on his hurdling debut here (good; under Niall Houlihan) and looked as though he would follow up at Doncaster before running out of puff late on; sets the standard.

Won here last September (1m4f, heavy) and this April (1m2f, soft), while he also went close over C&D on good ground last September; second off this mark at Goodwood four weeks ago confirmed he's been in career-best form, but there would be more for him to prove if the ground is good to firm.

Respectable fourth in this contest last year and was in good form (won/second) back here in September; weighted to the hilt now, however, and his Doncaster reappearance was poor having raced freely.

J: Joe Fanning

T: Charlie Johnston

The two wins from his four starts at Ayr were both more than two years ago, but he also ran creditably over C&D last September; downhill since his Musselburgh win this April, with the switch to a visor (replacing regular blinkers) perhaps contributing last time; reverts with headgear today and he's 4lb below his last winning mark.

Below par since 1m4f Musselburgh win on good to soft in April, including back at Musselburgh a couple of weeks ago, but is well treated if a first-time visor (replacing regular blinkers) sparks a revival.

All three Flat wins came over 1m2f in 2021; left Simon Dow for 8,000gns in November and finished tailed off on hurdling debut at Newbury when 200-1 (good to soft); drier ground will help her here but still unlikely to be good enough.
