Form & Verdict

Three front-running wins over 7f on good to firm last year but she ended last season on a low note and has finished down the field in both runs this term; has good draw on this drop back in grade but she needs to bounce back near best.

Form & Verdict

His two juvenile wins came in AW novice events but he's finished runner-up behind improvers in 7f handicaps at Leicester (good to firm) and Thirsk (good; Ventura Rascal fourth) in last two starts; should get a decent tow into this race and he's respected off same mark as last time.

Form & Verdict

Three AW handicap wins at about 1m2f since joining this yard; not a lot went right when favourite at Ascot (1m, good to firm) on his penultimate run but he was tailed off at Newbury last time; has something to prove after that major blip and he's untried at this trip; hood reapplied.

Form & Verdict

Well held here in both starts this season but he was forced wide on the first occasion and his last run was in a Class 2 event; has another tough draw but he's on a dangerous mark on this big drop back in grade and his yard has won this three times since 2016.

Form & Verdict

Had a great 2021 campaign, winning five times (turf/AW); still going in the right direction this year and he got back on the scoresheet at Chelmsford (7f) last time; his best form is on AW but he's on a lower mark on this return to turf and was successful at Epsom in his last two runs in this sphere; key player.

Form & Verdict

Dual winner over 6f on soft ground last season but has a mixed record since last success; ran respectably when third of five at Leicester (7f, soft) last month but she's still 2lb higher than for the last win and ideally wants some rain to arrive; others are more persuasive.
