Form & Verdict

0-11 on turf but, having posted his fourth AW win at Wolverhampton (9.4f) in May, he went very close off his much lower grass mark at Bath (1m2f, good) last month; a first turf win may well be imminent.

J: Billy Loughnane

Career record has been dominated by AW achievements and his two peak turf efforts were on good ground; fit from AW (tried cheekpieces last time, below form) and this is his lowest mark for a long time, but he does not look the percentage call.

Form & Verdict

Very lightly raced 4yo who may not be straightforward, having hung left when a close second to Precision Storm on her handicap debut at Wolverhampton (9.4f, AW) last time out in May, but she's open to improvement and could be bang there once more if taking to grass (turf debut).

Form & Verdict

C&D winner who went very close at Hamilton (1m1f, good) in May and is now 1lb lower; she's been a fair fourth on her three starts since, two of them over C&D, but she needs something extra if she's to come out on top.

Form & Verdict

Some good runs over hurdles earlier this year and returned to form on the Flat when third to The New Marwan over C&D (good) last Saturday; having been outpaced she came from a long way back and has obvious potential to build on that performance if travelling better today.

Consistent form in defeat on Flat this April-June (1-18 overall in that sphere); 0-11 over hurdles, well treated on some of her placed form in the 2021-22 campaign but below form on latest four attempts, including on latest outing; steps up from 2m with stamina in major doubt.

Yet to win on turf but has been placed over this trip at Nottingham and Wetherby (both good to firm) this month; suspicion she'll be vulnerable to some of the 3yos in this line-up, though.

Short-headed over 1m4f here last month and, having been fifth over the same trip next time, he made all over this C&D last Saturday; just 3lb higher today and could have more to offer.

Doesn't win all that often (2-27) and hasn't really kicked on since finishing runner-up at Redcar (1m2f, good to firm) in May; that said, there were mitigating circumstances (hampered) at Newcastle last time, so he may get closer to Point Louise.

Went close at Redcar last month and he's effective here; not discounted but his profile has been patchy over the last 12 months and he was soundly beaten at Nottingham last time; has to bounce back.

Form & Verdict

On a competitive mark and, having run well at up to 9.4f this year, she may appreciate this step up in trip after finishing down the field over 7f here three weeks ago; however, she hasn't been at the top of her game on her last three starts and needs to bounce back to her best.

Won at Newcastle (1m, AW) last October on his penultimate outing for Richard Fahey; however, this is his first run of 2022 and there's a stamina question to answer on his stable debut; wears first-time cheekpieces.
