Form & Verdict

Left Robert Cowell after disappointing AW run last month but quickly bounced back with narrow C&D win for new stable on Thursday, having swapped cheekpieces for a first-time hood; 5lb penalty is offset by Aiden Brookes' 5lb claim; must be considered.

Had tumbled in the weights prior to finishing runner-up behind Ecclesiastical over C&D two weeks ago on just his second run for Michael Attwater; wide draw not ideal tonight but he could be dangerous if he gets a good pace and some luck.

Placed three consecutive times, including a C&D second off today's mark, when fitted with cheekpieces this spring but his latest run was disappointing and he remains without a win since 2020.

Just two wins from 41 starts but his last success was over C&D (August 2023) and he's finished close up in big-field events at Thirsk (heavy/soft) in both runs this season; should be in the thick of things again and he handles most ground.

Not seen to best effect when drawn wide over 5f at Beverley last time but was in good form over 6f beforehand, most notably when second of 13 at Redcar (good to firm) three starts ago; 1lb lower now; one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Placed five consecutive times this year before eventually gaining breakthrough win at Southwell (6f, AW) 11 days ago, his 18th start; did that quite stylishly and will be fine back on turf but, nevertheless, a recent 6lb rise asks quite a lot of him.

9st 5lb

J: Joanna Mason

T: Michael & David Easterby

Close to his last winning mark; finished runner-up in a big-field sprint at Ayr's Western Meeting (5f, Class 5; good to soft) last September; gradually lost his way on AW thereafter, but does return fresh from a break at a realistic level; soft to heavy ground (0-7) presents the risk factor.

Form & Verdict

Still a maiden after 13 starts but last month's third at Ayr (6f, good) was a sound effort and he may not have been ideally suited by the drop back to 5f when fourth there on his latest outing; can play a part here if change of headgear has any sort of positive effect (usually wears cheekpieces).

Consistent off his revised mark since a C&D win (only victory to date) early in the year; has claims if the return of headgear, for the first time since he left Richard Fahey, does the trick.

Has modest 2-32 strike-rate, and both wins were gained over 5f; yet to hit top gear for new stable this year and was soundly beaten off today's mark last Wednesday; cheekpieces the headgear of choice today.

Didn't progress after winning handicap debut at Lingfield (7f, AW) in January, and recent efforts have been no better than respectable; continues to edge down the weights but needs to up his game.
