Form & Verdict

Dual Polytrack winner for Charles Hills and although 0-7 since joining this yard, there have been signs of encouragement as when second of 13 over C&D in April and when filling the same position at Wolverhampton (6f, Tapeta) nine days ago; claims from the same mark.

Form & Verdict

On a losing run of 12 and well held the last twice but has dropped to a tempting mark, 6lb lower than when third of 11 on his Windsor reappearance (6f, good); probably best known for his Polytrack exploits (5-18 and placed nine times), but ran well in his only previous start on Tapeta; interesting for stable that also runs Twilight Madness.

Form & Verdict

Won his first two starts over 5f on good ground after returning from six months off in April, but has been successful over this far; out of the frame in three outings since and tackles a new surface, but he is back off his last winning mark and his dam won five times on the AW; worth a second look.

Form & Verdict

Often a front-runner who completed a hat-trick over this trip on turf/Polytrack last year, but despite a rise in the weights he has held his form well including when beaten a head over C&D from 1lb higher in March; also beaten only narrowly the last twice, but is likely to face competition for the lead.

Form & Verdict

Remains on the same mark as for her last win and has run well in defeat in all four starts since joining this yard, including finishing runner-up over 7f here in her last two outings; has run well fresh before so her 162-day absence shouldn't be a major issue, but she may prefer the extra furlong these days.

Form & Verdict

Not disgraced when a close fourth of ten having attempted to make all at Doncaster (6f, good to firm) last time and although 2lb out of the weights, is still 1lb lower than when completing a hat-trick on turf last October; makes his Tapeta debut on his 95th outing, though, so not quite sure what to expect.

Effective from the front as he showed when making all over C&D in April, but not matched that form in three outings since; back off the same mark as for that last win, but he needs to turn things around after a short break and isn't the only pace angle in the race.

Handy sort who completed a five-timer between July and September last year, including two wins at Wolverhampton (7f, Tapeta); has run well in two of his three starts on turf since returning in May, but remains 6lb above his last winning mark and needs to find a bit extra for the first-time cheekpieces.

Made the frame over C&D at start of this month and again ran well on heavy ground when third behind Highfield Viking at Thirsk (7f, heavy) six days later; remains without a win since 2021, though, and drying ground will severely dent his appeal today.
