Form & Verdict
Well beaten on last month's reappearance at York and it's hard to be confident on the back of that; however, this very lightly raced 5yo may have needed the run and he ended last season with a win at Catterick (1m4f, soft); has also won on fast ground and he's not ruled out in first-time cheekpieces.

Form & Verdict
Landed fast-ground hat-trick last summer and, after finishing well beaten on his first two runs of this season, he returned to form when fourth at Ripon (1m4f, good) 11 days ago; could build on that and he's a possible.

Form & Verdict
Front-runner who has got better with each of his three runs this season and went close at Chepstow (1m2f, good) last time out; ran reasonably well over 1m4f last year and could make another bold bid.

Form & Verdict
Her profile can be up and down but she returned to form with a convincing win at Haydock (11.6f, soft) recently and she remains on a handy mark back up 4lb; versatile ground-wise and can play a leading role if repeating that latest performance.

4 yo Gelding

Form & Verdict
Won late last year on his first two attempts at 1m4f and he kicked off this campaign with two very solid runs in defeat; down the field at Goodwood most recently but that was on soft ground and, with a sound surface expected, there can be significant optimism he will bounce back with a big run.

4 yo Colt

OR: 81

Form & Verdict
His two wins have come over about 1m (last May/June) and he was no match for the winner when third at Haydock last time on his second crack at 1m2f; he's not bred for this longer trip but the way he kept on last time suggests it's worth a go and he's not discounted in first-time cheekpieces.
