Form & Verdict

Found the ground too testing at Windsor last time so forget that and his previous fourth at Haydock (1m2f, good) was respectable enough; his sole win for this yard came at 1m and he's a feasible winner if taking to blinkers (cheekpieces on last three runs).

J: Cieren Fallon

T: Michael Appleby

Tried over as far as 1m6f last year; combination of drop in trip, aggressive tactics and blinkers has seen him bounce back lately (latest instance on Wednesday) but 7f, even round a stiff course, looks a bare minimum.

Form & Verdict

After a stint in Bahrain (placed once) he returned to Britain with a midfield finish at Kempton (1m); the AW is more his scene and he's only won the once on turf, but an easy lead would help matters no end (likes to dominate).

Form & Verdict

Not the best of strike-rates on turf but he's sat on a good mark and there were positives to take from his Wetherby run (1m, good); unraced here but needs respecting.

Can race freely but has responded well to blinkers, winning two of his three starts in this headgear (all on AW); up 7lb for the latest but that was quite decisive from off the pace and this could also be run to suit; 1m with cut underfoot is fine.

Tends to race too freely but seemed to respond well to first-time blinkers when winning off reduced mark at Southwell (7f) last month; ought to have been suited by the return to 1m when very disappointing joint-favourite here two weeks ago but no surprise if he bounces back quickly.

Tends to race too freely but seemed to respond well to first-time blinkers when winning off reduced mark here (7f) last month; still well treated after a 2lb nudge and today's longer trip probably suits him better; high on the list.

Ended 2022 under a cloud and he came in last of nine on his return in 1m Windsor handicap; plenty to prove right now.

Course winner for Andrew Balding but never progressed and was sold on for £2,200; finished last on his stable debut when tried in cheekpieces and now goes in blinkers.
