Form & Verdict
The drop in trip seems to have brought about a resurgence in his last two starts over C&D (good to firm) this month, winning by over 4l on the first occasion and going down narrowly seven days later after having blown the start; up another 3lb, but still a major player in his current mood provided he breaks better than last time.

Form & Verdict
Back to form with an emphatic success in a lady amateurs' event at Sandown (1m, good) this month, gaining due reward for a run of consistent efforts in defeat; that only his second win in 34 starts, though, and the handicapper hasn't missed him with an 8lb rise; will need to step up again.

Form & Verdict
Six-time winner who has probably not been seen to best effect the last twice (stiff task latest), but is back off the same mark as for his latest success at Chelmsford (1m2f, AW) last October; usually seen over further these days, though, and this may be an inadequate test for him now.

Very well treated on his old form but last win was in September 2020 and he's struggled under both codes in the last three of his four runs for current yard; has lots to prove back on the Flat and can only be watched; new headgear.

Form & Verdict
No problem with the track having won twice over 7f last summer and back to winning form at Brighton (7f, good to firm) in May; fourth in the races he won here last year in his last two starts, but still has to prove his stamina for this sort of test.

Won over 1m at Chelmsford (AW) and Bath (firm) last month but out of his depth in his hat-trick bid when last of eight in a 0-100 contest at Newmarket (1m, good to firm) last time; back in calmer waters here and could easily bounce back.
