Form & Verdict

Useful 2yo who's back with his old yard after being picked up for 11,000gns in July; another solid effort when a clear second off this mark last Monday and his claims are there for all to see in a weak handicap.

Has returned from a short break in good form, bettering last December's Southwell win (5f, Tapeta) when 1l second at Wolverhampton (5f, Tapeta) this month; another good effort when third here (6f) on Friday; still a bit to prove over this far but should be involved.

Soft-ground 6f winner here in the spring off 2lb lower who's lost his form of late, including when behind three of these last Monday; not easy to make a case for him turning things round.

Made a good beginning to her 2yo career but started handicap life on an unrealistic mark in the spring and has struggled badly; the handicapper has given her every chance but she has it to prove now.

Was making her AW debut when second of eight over C&D last month despite not getting the best of starts; has the inside stall and possesses the early pace to make the most of it if breaking better than last time; much respected from the same mark.

Form & Verdict

Cheekpieces have helped this summer, with two wins and a near-miss, but she was below par behind Water Of Leith here last week; won't mind the return to 5f though, and is one of few with realistic claims.

Went close at Ayr (6f) in July and some fair runs since; this drop back to 5f is worth a go but she's been beaten on her last 14 starts and there's a suspicion she'll be vulnerable once more.

Well held in three runs to date, pulling hard a couple of times over 7f; this is more realistic though, and she'll probably never be found a softer race, so she's worth tracking in the market.
