Form & Verdict
Sole win (20 starts) was a novice race in 2020; below form on latest outing but runner-up on his previous two (including here) and also on five of his seven starts in 2021; latest six races were over 6f but he was effective at 5f and 6f last term; well capable of being bang there.

Form & Verdict
One of his eight wins was C&D in 2019; while not the force of old, he was close up twice when front-running this season (before a lesser effort on latest start) and is now back to the mark he won off last November.

Form & Verdict
His three runs at Windsor included a close call over 6f on reappearance and a 5f win on penultimate start; those career-best turf efforts were on softer than good, which poses a question but his record in previous seasons suggested he was equally good on fast ground; can't be ruled out.

Form & Verdict
5-16 on AW; still unexposed on turf (four starts) but he made virtually all under 5lb claimer for a clearcut win in seven-runner race over C&D (good to firm; very much career-best form) in April when last seen; raised 7lb and absent for 77 days (his first win last term came after 80 days off) but he has to be of major interest.

Form & Verdict
Made all at Newcastle in May and pipped at Lingfield on latest start, both improved efforts at 5f on AW; the problem is his turf record (all three starts on good to firm) in which he showed some ability on first two attempts but disappointed in May latest; on that score he has something to prove.

Form & Verdict
Two wins (2021) and a second from his four starts at Windsor; the exception came when he was 40-1 in a 6f Class 3 on penultimate start; he's more interesting now back down in class and trip, with his latest outing hopefully forgivable as it was a rare AW appearance; 2lb below his last winning mark, he's one to consider.
