Form & Verdict

Made all in handicap at Nottingham (1m2f, good to soft) last month on turf debut; further improvement in six-runner race at Sandown (1m2f, good) three weeks ago, making most and galloping on stoutly to regain second; raised another 3lb but it looks as if 1m4f will help; respected.

Often used to front-run but hasn't since last July; absent nearly six months before career-best form on last two starts, winning a Listed race at Chester (1m4f, good to soft) and Group 3 at Ascot (1m4f, good); best form last term was in France on officially very soft; probably needs to find a bit extra still but he needs plenty of respect.

Form & Verdict

Brother to very classy Yibir and Wild Illusion; four races on AW; showed plenty of ability at Kempton on second start, before going one better there over 1m4f with cheekpieces enlisted for eight-runner novice in January and four-runner handicap in April; up 5lb today but produced relatively late for those wins and and there's a very good chance he has plenty more to give.

Successful three times in cheekpieces; very good second (behind stablemates) in valuable 3yo handicap at Newmarket and C&D Listed event since wearing blinkers; solid contender in the retained blinds and helps to give Charlie Appleby, who also runs Siskany, another strong hand.

Form & Verdict

Second foal; dam 2m AW winner (RPR 92), half-sister to 1m4f Group 3 winner Hazel Lavery (dam of 1m Group 1 winner The Revenant); belied odds of 66-1 when getting up close home in novice at Chelmsford (1m2f, AW) in December for Sylvester Kirk; lost out late on in novice at Wolverhampton (1m4f, AW) last month for new connections but she's open to further improvement and can prove better than this mark at some stage soon.

Form & Verdict

Mostly front-runner; has contested four handicaps this term and seemed well suited by the step up in distance when winning four-runner race at Wolverhampton (1m4f) in January; raised 8lb and form dipped on turf debut at Leicester (1m4f, good to firm) three weeks ago but that was after 82 days off.

Won at Chelmsford (AW) in the last of his three 1m novice events as 2yo; favourite, held up and came from last to third in handicap at Nottingham (1m2f, good to soft) on reappearance, without getting close to the front-running winner Al Qareem; needs to have come on markedly since that run.

Form & Verdict

Late foal; brother to 1m-1m2f winner Platinum Warrior (including US turf Grade 2; RPR 108); big improvement to justify favouritism in two 1m4f handicaps on Wolverhampton AW this year, hugely on top late on when he made the running last time; raised 8lb and no surprise if that underestimates him.

Late foal; progressive form in his three maidens as 2yo, on last two outings when runner-up over 1m2f at Chester and Goodwood; only fifth of six on handicap/seasonal debut at Newmarket (1m2f, good to firm; 3-1) 12 days ago but he may have needed that run and could still raise his game.

23-race maiden; wasn't beaten far (1.75l) when fourth to today's rival Spirit Of Ash over C&D in November, and meets that mare on improved terms if factoring in the 7lb claim of Tom Kiely-Marshall; latest effort excusable (1m6f), so isn't a forlorn hope from a career-low mark.
