Form & Verdict
Triple Tapeta winner (7f/1m) much earlier in his career but he's better known as a fair 2m handicap hurdler these days; finished placed in his last two runs in that sphere but he was always in rear at a big price back on the Flat at York (2m, good to firm) last month; others preferred.

Form & Verdict
Added to his two AW wins when scoring at Nottingham (1m6f, good) in June and he ran well again at Newbury last month; that was a clear third behind an odds-on shot and this relatively lightly raced 5yo is still unexposed as a stayer; big player.

Form & Verdict
Won here (2m, good) and at Redcar (1m6f, good to firm) in June and she went very close at Chester (2m, good) last month; still looks on a workable mark but her good run of form came to a halt at Thirsk last time and she needs to bounce back after that.

Form & Verdict
Seems greatly flattered by 26l margin of success in apprentice race at Nottingham (1m6f) in June, having soon established a huge lead; came up short (narrowly on first occasion) when trying to make the most of the same mark twice in the following eight days and she was well held off her revised rating at Lingfield (2m, AW) last time; drops back in grade but has something to prove again and she's now 1-15.

Form & Verdict
Has a patchy record but he got back on the scoresheet with a clearcut win at Nottingham (1m6f, good) in May and was a creditable front-running third behind an improver at Hamilton last time; still looks feasibly treated and he's respected back up in trip and down in grade.
