Form & Verdict

Beaten 11 times since his sole win (here; 1m, good to soft) in June 2020 but he reappeared with a good third at Ayr (1m2f, good) in April and continues to edge down the weights; can be thereabouts.

All wins on good/good to soft, the most recent off 2lb lower at Wetherby in May; form dipped at Ayr last time and he is now conceding weight to several 3yos who are much less exposed; opposed.

Form & Verdict

Has won just one of his 14 starts but he was a solid fourth at Wolverhampton (9.4f, AW) three weeks ago and went very close over 1m2f on turf at Nottingham last September; could be in the shake-up.

Hasn't won on turf since July 2021 (7f, good); hasn't been in the best of form recently (well beaten over 1m2f on soft at Doncaster last month) and others appeal more.

Latest three wins at about 1m4f on AW and has a 1-21 strike-rate on turf; has run respectably on soft ground but the going can't be described as an asset and he has something to prove back from break.

Form & Verdict

Won last November on his final start in France (8.5f, soft) and he was a promising second of four on his stable debut at Southwell (1m3f, AW) in April; soundly beaten at Newcastle (1m4f, AW) last month but has been gelded since and he could appreciate the drop back in trip; not ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Some good runs on AW towards the end of last year and he got off the mark at the ninth attempt on his reappearance at Yarmouth (1m2f, good) a fortnight ago; didn't have much to spare in that six-runner handicap but he's just 1lb higher today and open to further improvement.

Form & Verdict

Won two in a row last October (1m2f, soft) before signing off with a below-par run at Newmarket (1m4f, good); drops back in trip for his reappearance and it'll be no surprise if this lightly raced 4yo has a big say, especially if slow ground prevails.
