Form & Verdict

Won at Thirsk (1m, good) in May on his second start and his subsequent fourth in a Newcastle novice (1m2f, AW) came in a race that has worked out extremely well; may have been let in lightly for this handicap debut.

J: Kyle McHugh

Won twice on good ground for Archie Watson as a 3yo; looks to retain ability, placed over hurdles on stable debut in September and on the Flat last November (1m4f); today's ground will be comfortably the slowest he's faced though and could prove vulnerable back at 1m.

A two-time 1m/1m2f scorer last term for Archie Watson; made a good start for his new yard when second over hurdles at Kelso in September; he can't be discounted back in this sphere.

Form & Verdict

Six of his seven wins have come at Ayr and he returned to form when second here (1m5f) two weeks ago on this year's first visit; the drop back in trip could be a negative but he's still respected given his record here; won this race in 2018, finished fifth last year; wears first-time cheekpieces.

Seven course wins, most recently when gamely making all over this trip last August; out of form on AW when last seen in autumn, though, and does not have a good record when fresh.

Form & Verdict

Ended a losing run when winning by 6l at Haydock (1m2f, good to soft) last month; hit with an 8lb rise but that may not stop him if he's in the same fine form as last time; ran fairly well on fast ground earlier in career.

All wins on good/good to soft, the most recent off 2lb lower at Wetherby in May; form dipped at Ayr last time and he is now conceding weight to several 3yos who are much less exposed; opposed.

Form & Verdict

Won by a neck at Pontefract (1m2f, good to firm) in April but he hasn't been at the same level the last twice and has to get back to his best.

J: David Allan

T: Tim Easterby

Comes alive at Pontefract and was gaining his fifth course win from seven goes when gamely scoring over 1m4f in June; not disgraced at Haydock last time; stays 2m and will probably see out this slightly longer distance; seems equally effective on good to firm and good to soft; solid contender.

Took Pontefract record to 5-7 (4-6 over 1m4f) ten days ago, as with the other wins gained on quicker ground than awaits here; penalty which obliges him to race off his highest ever mark is more of a concern.

6/1
