Form & Verdict

Won twice for Tom Dascombe last season, including a three-runner renewal of this race; had the benefit of a previous run on that occasion and this perhaps not the time to catch him, especially off his career-high mark.

J: Connor Planas

T: Hugo Palmer

Often apprentice ridden; Listed winner at Nottingham in April and very reliable in good handicaps, including with his fifth in the Chester Cup (2m2f, soft; career-best form) on latest outing and his third and fourth in the last two runnings of this race; 6lb higher than 12 months ago but in the thick of it again if his Chester Cup form is repeated.

Soundly beaten in Group races on two of his last three starts but very reliable in good handicaps and also bagged Listed honours at Nottingham in April; close third in this race last year off 8lb lower when Harry Davies claimed 7lb; probably vulnerable.

Form & Verdict

Ex-French 6yo; didn't pull up any trees in three runs for David O'Meara last season but he took full advantage of his drop in the weights when staying on strongly to land a 1m4f handicap at Thirsk two weeks ago (soft); still of interest up 3lb and he won twice over 1m7f in France; big player.

Losing run is mounting up and he never figured the last twice (1m4f/1m3f); however, may benefit from this step back up in trip; 0-4 on AW but is attractively weighted off current mark.

Four wins for Tom Clover at up to 2m; winless last season but showed he retained the bulk of his ability; sold for 30,000gns in October and looks the type to win races for new connections; one to consider.
