Form & Verdict

Reached the frame on numerous occasions last year including a near miss at Deauville (12.5f, AW) in November, but he didn't fire over C&D (first run since gelded) on his return in April and has been back on the sidelines since; record now stands at 0-16 and has a bit to prove in new headgear after another break.

Needs to improve markedly on his two hurdles efforts (good to soft) and may be more interesting when he gets a sound surface; sole Flat win came on fast ground.

Strike-rate of 1-26 on the Flat; keen enough before dropping out to be a remote fourth on hurdling debut at Wincanton (good to soft) and he probably wants drier ground to be seen to best effect; the hood (form figures of 05 on the Flat) now returns.

Form & Verdict

Flashes his tail under pressure; won 1m4f AW maiden in January (second start) and he's been consistent in 1m4f turf handicaps in last five starts; wasn't far away in a Class 4 at Doncaster (good to firm) last time and he should be in the mix again in new headgear.

Runner-up on six of his eight hurdle starts; below par at Ludlow (2m, good to soft) last time but ran well when runner-up there (2m, good) earlier last month; also effective on soft/good to soft ground and today's step up in trip is worth a go; blinkers (in which he's run well several times) replace the visor adopted the last twice; not written off.

Form & Verdict

Well-bred 3yo who has really got her act together with front-running wins in 1m2f handicaps at Beverley (good) and here (good to firm) in last two starts; up another 6lb but she stayed on strongly last time and is open to more progress on her step up to this trip; major player again in her bid to make it 3-4 in handicaps.

Form & Verdict

Ended 2021 with two 1m4f wins on AW; kicked off this campaign with a close call here (1m2f) in April but he's finished down the field in last two runs and latest was over C&D; returns from a break but has bit to prove and he needs to get back near best.

Form & Verdict

Landed the odds in a 1m2f Lingfield maiden (Polytrack) in March; respectable efforts in turf handicaps in next two starts (including over C&D) but his form slumped back on AW at Lingfield last month; still lightly raced but has something to prove again after that heavy defeat.

Form & Verdict

Very well treated on her old form but her last win was over two years ago and she finished fourth of five here (1m2f, good to firm) last Monday; wasn't beaten far in that race and this step back up in trip should suit but others are more persuasive.
