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.

Former stablemate of Green Power; 0-5 on AW but posted a very solid effort at Lingfield (1m) ten days ago on debut for new connections, beating all bar Cephalus who was on the third leg of a four-timer that culminated in a Good Friday success; interesting off the same mark.

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.

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.
