Form & Verdict

Bettered low-key seasonal/handicap debut when finishing strongly for narrow C&D (good) win in May and added to his tally with ready AW success this month; latest 7lb rise asks quite a lot of him, but he might still be improving.

Form & Verdict

Won consecutive AW races at Kempton in December (1m/7f) but returned from break with two lesser efforts there this summer; made some fairly encouraging late headway from a poor position last time but needs to up his game.

Well beaten on last month's stable debut but shaped with considerably more promise when fifth at Ffos Las (1m2f, good) on latest outing and today's drop back in trip could be a good move; enters calculations.

Form & Verdict

In the frame all six starts since switching to current stable this spring, most notably when clearcut course winner (7f, good) last month; runner-up off today's mark since and today's move back up in trip won't be a problem; likely contender.

Two wins include one here and he returned to form when a front-running second at Lingfield (7f, good to firm) when perhaps going off a bit too fast; Connor Planas looks a good booking.

Form & Verdict

Gained the last five of his 12 career wins at this track, the latest over 7f last month; fully effective over 1m but was a disappointing favourite here on latest outing and may find younger rivals better handicapped today; swaps blinkers for refitted visor.

All seven of his career wins have come at Bath, four of them last season (1m-11.5f); quiet on AW in late 2023 but resumes on a dangerous mark as a consequence; one to be interested in.

Form & Verdict

Claimed out of George Boughey's stable for £6,000 after winning on soft ground at Leicester (7f) in May; will also be suited by today's trip/ground but was safely held when back in a handicap here (7f, good) for recent stable debut.
