Form & Verdict
Better than ever this year with his 6f wins at Yarmouth and Doncaster (both on good to firm) but he didn't really fire in his hat-trick bid back at Doncaster (finished fourth) three weeks ago; only 2lb higher than for last win but he needs to step up again after that last run.

Form & Verdict
Showed clear promise with his placed efforts on AW in first three starts and he found more progress on handicap debut/turf debut when scoring at Windsor (6f, good to firm) last month; up 5lb but he travelled strongly before knuckling down well last time and is a big player again.

Form & Verdict
Progressive gelding who has won three of his last six starts and he made it 2-3 in a visor when beating 14 rivals at Thirsk (6f, good) last time; up another 7lb but he still looks feasibly treated and seems tactically versatile; respected.

Form & Verdict
0-10 since winning on her debut last July (6f, heavy) and she's finished down the field in all five starts this season; goes back up in trip off a falling mark but she needs to get back on track in new headgear.
