Form & Verdict

Two 1m2f wins last year on turf and he sprung back to life in winning a 1m3f Kempton AW handicap one month ago, beating six rivals in workmanlike fashion; seems best in smaller fields and he'll stay this far; up 5lb.

Improved middle-distance handicapper in 2022, on turf and AW, including C&D; not picked up again this year and way below form at Ascot last time but at least he's 7lb lower than when reappearing in a valuable C&D handicap in April; not ruled out back on AW; regular tongue-tie discarded.

Improvement peaked with his win in this race last year (good to firm); just 1lb higher today and he was a respectable third on soft ground at Ripon on latest outing, with his tongue tied for the second time, so he needs a second look.

Fifth in a hot 1m2f novice here in May, then finished second at Hamilton before making a successful handicap debut back here (this trip) a month ago; did well to win that having been held up off a steady pace and he's effectively just 1lb higher if taking Oisin McSweeney's claim into account; danger to all.

Form & Verdict

Progressive handicapper last year and still improving by the looks of it, as they were strong handicaps in which he was fourth at Haydock and runner-up here; both were at 2m and, although he's been a winner over this far, further might be ideal now.

While not as good as his 2022 form, his second at Newcastle (2m, AW) last time was his best result since; there's 1m4f and turf form among his old best efforts but a bit more for him to prove on both counts today.

Form & Verdict

Won his novice here; St Leger entry is optimistic but he beat a solid yardstick to win on handicap debut at Doncaster (1m4f, good to firm) and it could be that soft ground didn't suit when he was one of the favourites at Haydock (1m6f); capable of better no doubt.

It was a four-runner race at Goodwood a fortnight ago (1m4f, soft; made all) in which he returned to winning ways, and he's 3lb higher in a hotter race here; however, this 4yo hasn't had much racing and could still have more to offer; ran well over C&D last September and he's not ruled out.

First and second in 1m4f handicaps for Roger Charlton; right back to form when a close fourth at Kempton and then unseated soon after the start at Chelmsford; may need his best yet to win this but there are further races in him.
