Front-runner; has won six times over C&D on good to soft/good/good to firm; creditable third on heavy ground here last time; not the force of old but on a good mark; chance

Multiple course winner; good start to this campaign with placed efforts here and at Ripon; not beaten far here last month and he continues to drop in the weights.

Inconsistent in Class 4 events since the end of May; looks interesting back in Class 5, having scored off only 1lb lower at Pontefract (good to firm) on last attempt in this grade.

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.

J: Phil Dennis

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.

Absent since a heavy defeat over hurdles in February (0-6 in that sphere); return to Flat looks a plus but has something to prove over this trip, having gained both wins at 1m.

Order Of St John

12st 0lb

J: Kielan Woods

T: D J Jeffreys

Won four-runner maiden hurdle at Leicester (1m7f, good to firm) last November and soft ground may not have suited in Sandown handicap next time; however, he's failed to shine on the Flat this year which dents confidence in his claims on this chase debut.

Form & Verdict

Mixed results over 7f/1m/1m2f/1m6f for current yard; return to 1m4f may have positive effect, having won AW novice event on sole attempt over this distance (final start for George Boughey).

Regressed sharply over various trips last year; again didn't look to see out 1m4f behind Ideal Dream on her comeback here three weeks ago, although offering more from the front, and that gave something to build on.

Easy winner of a 1m4f novice auction event at Kempton in August 2021, her final start for George Boughey; disappointing in 2022 but she starts this campaign off a much-reduced mark as a consequence; risky.
