Form & Verdict
Gelded prior to his reappearance success at Ayr (6f, good) where he was right back to form, having ended last season out of sorts; not disgraced (tenth of 26) in the Wokingham since; still competitively treated, as he defied this mark at Hamilton 13 months ago; not dismissed.

Form & Verdict
Four-time Group 2 winner over 7f for David Elsworth; never landed a blow in 7f AW handicap at Newcastle ten days ago when back from a near two-year absence; that might have blown away the cobwebs but it's not entirely clear how much ability he retains; drop back to 6f looks a negative.

Form & Verdict
Ran respectably from very wide draw in big field over C&D (not far behind Dream Composer) two starts ago, then made all for a clearcut success at Doncaster (6f, good to firm) where he registered a career-best performance; likely to make a bold bid from stall 3 back here.
