Never dangerous from off the pace in 1m/1m2f handicaps here the last twice but he runs this track well and 1m4f suits him better, especially when there's some pace on; draw is offputting but considered nevertheless.

Form & Verdict

Emphatic winner of a Wolverhampton novice (8.6f) on her final start in 2020 but was not seen again until a low-key run on her handicap debut at Newbury (1m2f) in October; that was in the mud and this step to 1m4f could suit on pedigree but she needs to resume her progress after another break.

Form & Verdict

His last three wins have come on turf but he's a dual C&D winner who ran well when second here (1m4f) last time; this is a deeper race but he should be in the mix again for in-form yard.

Hardy veteran who drew a blank in 2022 but got back in front over 1m6f at Bath this April and his other races this season have been at 1m4f; ground softer than good would be preferable; considered each-way if he gets it.

Good summer in 2021 included a win in this race under Serena Brotherton; drew a blank in 2022 but got back in front at Bath (1m6f) this April when last seen; it looks as if ground softer than good may be needed if he races over as short as 1m4f these days.

His seven wins have all been at middle distances but he has form at up to 2m and is ideally suited on slow ground; last success was in July 2021 but that was off 3lb higher and he returned to turf with an eyecatching fourth at Pontefract (1m4f, soft) ten days ago; kept on well out wide in that race and he looks interesting back up in trip.
