Consistent without making quite the progress that may have been expected since moving into handicaps; today's longer trip a possible source of progress though and this isn't as strong as the races he has been contesting.

Form & Verdict

Left his maiden form behind him when narrowly landing a 1m4f handicap at Salisbury in May (good to firm); looked to find 1m4f on the AW at Lingfield an insufficient test four weeks ago; could take another step forward upped to 2m for the first time.

Form & Verdict

Perhaps not entirely straightforward but he ran his best race so far when flying home for second over 1m6f here last month; that form hasn't been advertised and he is now 5lb higher but there should be more to come at 2m and it wouldn't be wise to underestimate him.

OUR TIP

Last run: 16 days

W: 10st 3lb

6 yo Gelding

OR: 76

Form & Verdict

Not the force of old but he rolled back the years with a powerful display at Catterick 16 days ago; 6lb higher mark to contend with and it could be enough to find him out.

Good third off 12lb higher in this race (soft) last year but he was out of sorts in final three runs for Mark Walford last summer; with new yard now and he needs a major revival after 246 days off; cheekpieces back on.

Showed he retained ability when third at Chester last month but runs either side of that are less convincing; others in this line-up bring stronger claims.

Beat Oasis Prince at Ripon last month and added another win to her tally at Redcar 17 days later; went down fighting at Chester two weeks ago (first-time cheekpieces, retained) and she should be involved once again.

Form & Verdict

Hasn't found winning easy but it's hard to knock him on the consistency front this year, placed in all five starts from 1m4f-2m; should give it another good go but his limitations look evident.

Ex-Phil Kirby; two good runs in 1m4f AW handicaps in the spring (won at Southwell in March) but disappointing since, including back at Southwell last time; bit to prove on debut for new trainer.
