Form & Verdict
Made it two wins from 13 starts for David O'Meara when landing a claimer at Catterick 17 days ago, after which he was sold for £15,000; he's on a competitive mark now back in a handicap and could have a part to play.

Good second in first-time cheekpieces at Chepstow last month and he was hampered on the final bend when a close sixth of 12 at Lingfield (AW) last Saturday; in the mix if he's suited by the first-time blinkers.

Form & Verdict
Showed promise on his first three starts (including on good to soft) and he was a respectable fourth of eight on his handicap debut at Doncaster (7f, good to firm) in May, where he was at a disadvantage in being held up off a steady pace; gelded since and he could have more to offer.

Can take a keen hold, like when fitted with a hood (back on here) in C&D novice two ago; never nearer when fourth on handicap debut at Doncaster in May (4-1) and could build on that, especially if gelding operation has the desired effect.

Form & Verdict
5yo who made it 0-11 when fifth of seven at Chepstow in June and his best form has come on AW; however, he may have needed that latest run after an 82-day break and he's on a competitive mark on his best AW efforts; showed promise on turf last summer and he's not ruled out.

0-9 and still to prove he wants this far, but despite starting to look exposed his efforts in three Class 4 handicaps and a novice since switching to the AW in December entitle him to the utmost respect in this company.

Form & Verdict
Down the field on Polytrack the last twice and there's a question mark regarding his current form, but he's 0-9 on AW as opposed to 3-14 on turf and is 3lb lower than when a good third at Chepstow in June on his last grass turf; could bounce back with a big run.

Has been running off similar marks since last summer, his win coming over 1m at Windsor in April; has run well in two of three runs since but the exception was a C&D sixth in May; also ran moderately in one previous handicap here (1m) so needs to show he can hack it here.
