Form & Verdict

Made all to spring a 25-1 surprise at Kempton in September (7f, AW; first-time blinkers); short of that level in three runs this year (blinkers discarded latest but back on today) but back to his winning mark as a consequence; risky but not a forlorn hope.

Form & Verdict

Won twice as a 2yo and he returned to winning ways when readily accounting for eight rivals in a 6f 0-50 classified event here 13 days ago; worth another crack at 7f but he is taking on better opposition today.

Similar form in three qualifying runs at around 7f; not obviously thrown in for his handicap debut but he's bred to be a bit better than this mark; betting to guide.

Form & Verdict

Placed in 7f and 1m maidens at Southwell earlier in the year; gelded prior to a modest effort at Doncaster on his handicap debut eight weeks ago (1m2f, good); was only a 5-1 shot there so clearly there is felt to be some mileage in his handicap mark; could fare better for a yard whose last three runners have all been successful.

Form & Verdict

Both his wins have come over 6f but he stays this trip well and he's in better form than his recent results suggest; should make a bold at a track where he's 1-1.

Form & Verdict

Whiff of promise as a 2yo; gelded in January and shpwed his true colours when getting the better of a thriving rival at Newbury four weeks ago (1m, good); 4lb rise not insurmountable but he did seem very well suited by the longer trip last time.

Form & Verdict

The switch to a visor has seen him go with more spark on his last two starts, third over C&D and then filling the same spot at Doncaster 26 days ago (1m, good); yet to run poorly in four previous visits here and he should be in the thick of it once more.
