Form & Verdict

Running well lately including when beaten half a length into second of 14 behind a subsequent winner at Hamilton (1m, soft) last time; acts on fast ground too, but is now 0-21 and has been shoved back up 4lb; should go well again, but others are more convincing for the win.

T: Ruth Carr

In good form this season, scoring in good style off 6lb lower on reappearance (1m, heavy) before finishing close third to Do I Dream with a 4lb penalty at Ripon last time (1m, heavy); this stiff 7f should be no problem; should go well again.

Form & Verdict

Not many miles on the clock for a 4yo and has done well the last twice, finishing a close third of nine over C&D (good) on penultimate start before off the mark under a well-judged front-running ride at Hamilton (1m, good) four days later; 4lb higher, but he may get his own way again in this small field.

Absent since AW defeat in October; successful at Ayr, albeit in Class 6, on most recent turf attempt (7f, soft) and on reappearance last term (1m, good to firm); not dismissed.

Form & Verdict

Placed twice over 7f in four starts for William Haggas last summer, but has failed to beat a rival in three handicaps for this yard, including both since returning in April; down another 5lb, but can't be recommended at present.

Acts on good to soft (unraced on slower); beaten favourite in similar event over C&D 12 days ago but wasn't disgraced on form; worthy of respect, having won a division of this contest (off 5lb lower) last year.

Form & Verdict

Dual AW winner (7f/9.5f) for Richard Hannon and 1-3 over hurdles since joining this yard; fairly treated on the pick of his turf Flat form such as when second of nine off this mark at Newmarket (1m2f, good to firm) last August; shouldn't be underestimated.

Beaten about 10l by Mack The Man at Musselburgh three weeks ago in a race he'd won the previous season off 10lb lower; it's never going to be easy off his current mark.

Narrow winner of this 12 months ago when 10lb lower but he's made further progress this term, including another course win; latest run wasn't his best but his previous third in a strong race here gives him a good chance.
