Fairly useful on the Flat but 0-6 over hurdles; ran well when fifth on return to this sphere at Taunton (2m, good to soft) last month but was below that form on his latest outing and his stamina heads into unknown territory here; others preferred.

Form & Verdict

Most handicaps at about 1m4f, with four wins on turf (good to firm) and AW; hit a flat spot when upped to 2m at Goodwood in May but he seemed to get a second wind and came home nicely; however, his stamina still needs to be established at this level.

Five of his wins have been on AW, the latest last September at Wolverhampton (1m6f) off 3lb lower; out of sorts this winter but first-time cheekpieces saw him back to his best when second in useful 2m race at Lingfield one month ago; that puts him back into serious calculations.

Five wins on AW including over C&D; his last success was off only 1lb lower at Wolverhampton (1m6f) last September but he's been out of sorts this winter and needs to turn things around; first-time cheekpieces.

Five wins on AW, the most recent off 2lb lower at Wolverhampton (1m6f) in September; not in the same form since, however, and finished behind some of these opponents at Kempton most recently; does not look poised to add to his tally.

Form & Verdict

Five wins since last June, including on good to firm; has been a revelation at 2m of late, following impressive wins at Goodwood and Ascot with a fighting effort against one who remains unbeaten in 2022, at York last month; up further 3lb; return to 1m6f is the slight query.

Form & Verdict

Has been hurdling, twice turned over since successful debut in October (good); however, was a triple Flat winner at 1m (AW) and 1m2f (soft/good to soft) for previous yard in 2020; could be happier back on the Flat and had wind surgery since last seen; new aids fitted; Yorkshire yard 0-3 here.

Acts on most ground, including good to firm, but didn't continue a run of useful efforts in competitive 1m4f-1m6f events when last seen on soft going in October; gelded since; off since but is a very solid contender.

Form & Verdict

Often leads; had his ups and downs on turf for previous yard but in good form for this one on AW, winning two of his last four starts at 1m4f; however, he returns to turf with stamina to prove over this far (previous well-held attempt came in a Group 3 in 2020) and lacking a recent run.
