Form & Verdict
He has done all his winning over 6f, most recently at Ayr last month off 2lb lower; respectable efforts twice since but it's a worry that he might get taken off his feet early on over 5f on forecast fast ground; 3lb out of the handicap too.

Form & Verdict
Usually a prominent racer so missing the break and being held up perhaps didn't suit him at Chester last week; prior to that he was about 2l behind Lovely Mana at Sandown (5f, good to firm) when having no excuses; a win and a fine second when previously ridden by Silvestre De Sousa but others are still stronger for win purposes.

Form & Verdict
Ran well over C&D at the Royal meeting as a 2yo; he has returned this season with a pair of cracking runs here, finishing fourth in the Palace Of Holyroodhouse last month and then finding Mountain Peak just a nose too strong two weeks ago; another 5lb higher today but he's going the right way and clearly well suited by the prevailing conditions.

Form & Verdict
Didn't get home in the Cheveley Park on her final 2yo run but she was making giant strides over 5f previously, winning a Group 3 in France before a close third in the Group 2 Flying Childers; not disgraced behind Mountain Peak and others over C&D two weeks ago when returning from 287 days on the sidelines (poor track position and tired late on); can be more competitive today.

Form & Verdict
Enjoying a fine year for her new yard, winning for the third time when sauntering clear of King Of Stars at Sandown three weeks ago; another good run when fourth behind Mountain Peak and Bond Chairman over C&D last time but that effort does suggest she'll need to progress again to defy this mark; given what has gone before, that couldn't be ruled out.

Won from Mountain Peak over C&D in 2020 and is 1lb lower today; better than ever last summer, winning twice at Doncaster; he is very well handicapped on that and shaped with promise on reappearance but hasn't gone on from it, including under optimal conditions the last twice; bit to prove for now.

Form & Verdict
Has a fine record at this track, including a win in this event 12 months ago, and he is better than ever at the age of seven, following his excellent second in the Dash at Epsom with a game effort to beat his 19 rivals over C&D two weeks ago; another 6lb rise asks a stiffer question of him but he's thriving and shouldn't be passed over at all lightly.

In great form last September, winning the Portland over 5.5f and Newbury Group 3 over 5f; ended 2021 with a low-key run over C&D (albeit perhaps with the ground too soft and he had run well here last July) and he has finished last in both runs this time around (Group races); returns to a handicap with something to prove.
