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.

Last five races have resulted in form figures of 22112, the wins gained at this course (5f, good to firm) and Goodwood (6f, good); creditable second in a competitive Sunday Series event over C&D 16 days ago; remains at the top of his game and commands respect.

Stays 6f but a stiff 5f is probably ideal for him; he was finishing well at Goodwood last week (5f, heavy) but the leaders had gone off quickly and he was perhaps flattered by his proximity at the finish having been outpaced at halfway; well treated on last year's best but this race might place too much emphasis on stamina.

Won this 12 months ago off 1lb higher (on good to soft) and added two further wins, including one on good; ran as though the race over 6f would bring him on at Doncaster three weeks ago and 5f has always been his best trip; easy to see him going well.

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.

On a long losing run but he was second in this race 12 months ago off a 2lb higher mark; signalled his wellbeing when finding only an unexposed sprinter a head too strong at Newbury two weeks ago; repeat of that would see him bang there.

6f on slow ground ideal and he's on a good mark; that's been the case for a while though and you have to go back to October 2021 for the last of his four wins; should be sharper for last month's reappearance; place claims.

Returns to his usual trip having looked a non-stayer over 7f last time; scored narrowly off this mark at Thirsk in April and the runner-up has boosted that form since; possibilities if back to that level.
