Form & Verdict

Five-time winner but none since January 2021; not beaten far in stronger races on his last two starts (in this headgear) and no surprise to see him make a bold bid.

Form & Verdict

Took him a long time to get off the mark but he broke his duck at Wolverhampton in December (5f) and he has added further wins at Wolverhampton and Goodwood (both 6f) since; don't expect to see him on the scene until late but he is going the right way and can't be dismissed.

Three of his five wins have come here (including one under Alicia Perkins) and he's just 2lb higher than for the most recent over this trip in January; capable of playing a part if getting a good pace to aim at.

Form & Verdict

Had a purple patch last summer, winning four times in June and July; the handicapper has been on top since but he's slipped back into what is effectively a Class 5 and a better effort should be forthcoming today.

Won four in a row in the summer of 2021 (including back from a break) but he's drawn a blank since; ended 2023 with a string of good runs but his best turf form has come on a faster surface.

Form & Verdict

2-3 on turf this year, winning 5f handicaps at Windsor and Chepstow on good or quicker; 3lb rise for latest success shouldn't prevent another big run, especially at this level, and he can make a bold bid to make it 3-3 for Harry Davies.

Form & Verdict

Conceding five years and more to his rivals, even in veteran company, but he retains plenty of enthusiasm and he has been placed in all four starts this season; won twice here in his relative youth; suspicion he will have to make do with more minor money.

Veteran with 18 sprint wins on his CV but the last one was 18 months ago and he's not got involved in his last four starts; mark continues to fall but his only previous run at this trip was in 2014 and he makes no appeal.

9st 4lb

J: Mia Nicholls

T: Adrian Nicholls

Won twice at Chelmsford under Mia Nicholls last year and has knocked at the door in his last two starts; favourably drawn to attack but the fear factor is that he'll find this stiff 5f just too much; realistic place prospects though.

4/1
