Form & Verdict

0-17 and he bled from the nose on his final outing for William Knight in May; raced freely and could make no impression on stable debut at Sandown (7f, good; 18-1) three weeks ago; needs to build on that.

Form & Verdict

Ended losing run with clearcut success in six-runner race at Brighton (7f, good to firm) last week, seeming suited by the first-time cheekpieces; his previous win had come here and a 5lb penalty may not prevent a follow-up.

Form & Verdict

Has won two of her four races since fitted with a hood, most recently over this trip at Chepstow (good; made all) in July; shaped as if still in good form last time and she's been runner-up twice over C&D, including behind Bolly Bullet in this race 12 months ago; commands major respect.

Form & Verdict

All four wins at 6f; ran well when short-headed over that trip at Leicester (good to firm) in May but hasn't repeated the form in two outings since, including here; sold from Alice Haynes for £10,000 since his last run; bit to prove for new yard, not least his stamina for 7f, but impossible to discount in an open race.

Dual Kempton AW winner (6f/7f) last November, but as a result is 14lb higher than when gaining his last turf success at Ffos Las (6f, good) last summer; probably needed last month's Windsor reappearance (6f, good to firm), but still well down the pecking order.

Form & Verdict

Well handicapped on last summer's form which included a win in this race under Owen Lewis off a 6lb higher mark; mainly out of sorts since last autumn, although there have been signs he retains ability; carries clear risks but very dangerous if he does bounce back to form.

Form & Verdict

Claimed out of George Boughey's stable for £6,000 after winning at Leicester (7f, soft; handles good to firm as well) in May; well held at Chepstow on both starts for current yard (also represented by Bolly Bullet); falling in the weights but needs to rediscover his spark.

Brighton regular - successful over 1m there last May; struggled for form on turf through August, September, and October, so returns from a 155-day absence with plenty to prove, not least his AW prowess (0-12).
