Dual 5f Tapeta winner around the turn of the year who returns from a two-month break today; still to convince he's as effective over 6f and his record on turf has been patchy at best.

Won a 6f classified event at Thirsk in August and he finished a fair fourth in sprint handicaps on Tapeta in his final two runs in the autumn; returns from 101 days off but he has form when fresh and could be dangerous if he gets a good pace to aim at.

Form & Verdict

Hard to know what happened at Yarmouth 23 days ago but perhaps a second quick run on fast ground was to blame; she'd previously just been denied at a short price and ought to fare better here.

Southwell winner off 4lb lower last month who found this mark beyond him when behind three of tonight's rivals over C&D latest; will likely be ridden for luck as usual from a wide stall.

J: James Sullivan

Prolific winner who finally managed a victory in the first half of the year when kicking off his yard's good spell a few weeks ago; no obvious reason he won't go well again but a 4lb rise could leave him vulnerable.

Two solid efforts from the front last month and the drop back from 7f looks in his favour for a yard in decent nick lately; can't be left out of calculations.

Much her best effort of 2022, when given a second try in cheekpieces, when third at Leicester last month (6f, good to firm); that was a weak affair, however, and she's far from certain to back it up on previous evidence.
