Form & Verdict

Unexposed 3yo who showed she was let into handicaps lightly when readily accounting for five fillies at Thirsk a fortnight ago (6f, good to firm); up 6lb against stronger (and male) opposition but it doesn't require much of an imagination to see her make a very bold bid.

Form & Verdict

Tough front-runner who has landed three 6f handicaps on Lingfield's AW this year; ran as well as he ever has when beaten just a nose by Recon Mission at Sandown 15 days ago; should remain competitive now he's proved himself on the grass.

Has a patchy record but he got up close home at Chelmsford (6f) in November and was a fair third behind an all-the-way winner over C&D ten days ago; has claims if he can build on that and three of his four wins have come at this track.

Good record at the track, winning four times, and he ran his best race for some time when making all in a 5f handicap at Yarmouth 16 days ago; 5lb rise to contend with but the return to this track is beneficial.

He has dropped a long way in the weights and there has been more promise on his last two starts, both over 5f; return to 6f will help and he's one to keep an eye on; this might be a shade too competitive though.

Form & Verdict

Still seeking his first handicap win but there have been some good runs in defeat this year, notably at Bath last month (5.5f, firm); not so good at Newmarket 13 days ago but that was a Class 3; this his first run at Brighton but chance if he takes to it.

Form & Verdict

A slow start to the year saw him fall down the weights and he's found the groove again more recently, finishing second at Bath in June before a narrow defeat of Impeach at Sandown 15 days ago (5f, good); returning to 6f no bad thing and he won twice off higher marks in 2021; one to consider.

Good strike-rate and has won over C&D in the past; his last four wins have come over 7f but this is likely to be well run and his stamina could be an asset; still has potential in his turf mark.

Having dropped in the weights he threatened a couple of times on AW in February and March; out the back twice on turf in May though and absent since; capable, as when second in this race off an 8lb higher mark last year, but risky for now.
