Form & Verdict

Placed at 6f and 7f for Richard Hannon but never won a race for that yard; probably a matter of time before he does get his head in front and didn't run badly last time at Thirsk (6f, soft) when away from the main action; returning to 7f is probably right.

Form & Verdict

Went missing for 11 months after her winning debut as a 2yo at Yarmouth (1m, soft); slipped straight back in the groove with a couple of decent efforts last autumn (including a Newmarket handicap) and her seventh of 20 at Newbury (1m2f) three weeks ago wasn't too shoddy; whether she's quick enough for this new trip is questionable.

Others have stronger form than this 5yo, who was below par in the Group 2 Celebration Mile at Goodwood (soft) last time; however, she's had a fine season and made all in the Group 3 Valiant Stakes at Ascot (1m, good to soft) two starts ago; also effective on good/good to firm; this course often favours prominent-racers and it will be no surprise to see a bold bid.

A 9yo not as good as he was but it was a significant step back in the right direction when a clear second at Catterick (7f, good; finished well) and the winner ran second in a richer Newmarket handicap the next time; should have a big shout off the same mark but a concern is that all his best form is on good or quicker ground.
