Form & Verdict

Front-runner; won last year's Great St Wilfrid over C&D (good ground); ran close to his best when second at Musselburgh in April and had an excuse (reared in the stalls) when last in the Dash at Epsom last time; likely to bounce back but there's little margin for error off his current mark.

His last three wins have come over this trip at Ripon; well handicapped on last season's best but he underperformed at Ripon, albeit over 5f, when last seen three weeks ago; down in class today and one to consider; can blow it at the start.

Form & Verdict

Low-mileage 4yo; Wolverhampton novice winner (8.6f, AW) for John Gosden at the end of 2020; better than ever on stable debut when making all at Chelmsford (6f, AW) two weeks ago; probably just as effective on turf and only 2lb higher here; has to be respected.

Front-runner who was given a peach of a ride to win at Lingfield on Good Friday; only midfield back on turf three weeks ago and even the booking of the red-hot Frankie Dettori may not be enough to tip the scales in his favour today.

Took advantage of a drop in the weights and a fine front-running ride to win 6f Class 3 on AW at Lingfield six weeks ago; 2lb rise still leaves him with some handicapping potential; easy lead unlikely this time though.

0-17 in 2021 but quickly revitalised since joining Michael Dods, winning at Thirsk in May and over C&D (good; beat Intrinsic Bond in decisive fashion) two weeks ago; 5lb rise does not look insurmountable; should go well again.

Form & Verdict

Progressive last year, winning twice (5f/6f) within four days in September, and he looked as good as ever when an unlucky third to Ava Go Joe here on his reappearance; however, two runs since then have been disappointing and he needs to rediscover his spark.

Has drawn a blank this season but he retains a good chunk of ability, running well at Haydock in June off a 5lb higher mark and beaten under 4l in a hot York sprint latest; capable of a big run but slow starts have been a feature the last twice and that sounds a note of caution.

Form & Verdict

Well handicapped on his best form from last year, including when fourth to Justanotherbottle in the Great St Wilfrid off 9lb higher; again showed his liking for this C&D when second to Tinto two weeks ago and he's now 5lb better off with the winner; versatile tactically; might be the answer.

His results have been up and down since joining this yard in July and he was below par at Ascot last time, but he was a close third in the Portland here (5.5f, soft) last month and that form has worked out really well; now 1lb lower and this prominent-racer is capable of having a big say.

Kicked off this campaign with two 5f wins, including on this course on good ground; probably just as effective at 6f but he now has to put behind him below-par efforts in big fields at Hamilton and York.

Had some smart form on slow ground in his prime and having tumbled down the weights he finally capitalised with an impressive win at Doncaster 16 days ago (5f, soft); up 6lb in a better race but the runner-up at Doncaster has since won well and he has conditions to suit; other pace to deal with but he's more appealing than many.
