Form & Verdict

Reeled off a 6f hat-trick here last summer and bounced back to form to take advantage of a reduced mark in a three-runner race at Yarmouth (6f, good to firm) nine days ago; that is surely weak form but he retains handicapping scope on last year's exploits.

Veteran who is a 16-time winner; however, has very unconvincing form since returning from lengthy layoff and doesn't look anything like the force of old; opposed.

Form & Verdict

Arrives in search of a hat-trick after 7f wins at Thirsk (good) and York (good to firm) in recent months; his success at the latter track was boosted when the runner-up won next time; further 3lb rise is unlikely to prevent him making a bold bid for three in a row.

Form & Verdict

Improved this year, scoring at Nottingham and Thirsk (both 6f, good) in May; has kept on without ever seriously threatening when recording respectable efforts in big fields over 6f at York on his last two starts and this step back up to 7f could be in his favour; one to consider.

Boasts a consistent record over C&D without winning, all his victories having come over an easy 6f on turf; outran market expectations behind Outrun The Storm on his C&D comeback and gives his trainer a decent hand.

Yet to add to his two wins of 2021 but he has run some creditable races this year; latest Beverley fifth wasn't one of them but he's feasibly handicapped if first-time cheekpieces have a positive effect.

Showed some quite useful 2yo form for Richard Fahey; this season has been largely disappointing but she did fare better when second in a 1m Leicester claimer (good to firm) last Sunday; not entirely straightforward but that latest run gives her something to build on.
