Form & Verdict

Three AW runs in February and March were just modest but a switch to handicaps over further has seen him win his last four starts; only scrambled home at Goodwood when last seen ten weeks ago but that form has been boosted and it was his fourth start in quick succession; perhaps has a few ideas of his own but unlikely this mark is beyond him and the best could be still to come; big player.

J: Pat Cosgrave

Made it a remarkable 7-8 in handicaps when leading in the closing stages on his 1m3f Kempton reappearance 19 days ago; didn't look all out so a 3lb rise seems unlikely to prevent another bold bid.

Form & Verdict

He ran very well on his seasonal reappearance at Windsor in April but he has been disappointing since, including a defeat at long odds-on at Pontefract last month; no match for the winner when second at Southwell three weeks ago (1m3f; tongue-tied for the first time, retained); not the easiest to assess now making his handicap debut.

Capitalised on his drop down the weights when running away with a 1m2f handicap at Haydock in June; hit with an 8lb rise for that success and he came up short at Ayr last month; needs to be back at his best if he is to make a winning AW debut.

Form & Verdict

Both his wins have come at Redcar, the second of them off a 3lb lower mark last September; ran well when third over C&D on his seasonal debut but he hasn't hit the same heights in three runs since; risky at present.

J: Sam James

T: Gemma Tutty

Prominent racer; feasibly weighted seeking a hat-trick after back-to-back Beverley wins (1m2f; has risen a combined total of 5lb); the stable is going really well, he's versatile ground wise, and this sharp track should suit; enthusiasm is tempered by inconclusive stamina over 1m4f.

The winner of two of his five races, a 1m maiden here on debut in February and a 1m2f handicap at Ayr last month (off 3lb lower); form dipped slightly at Sandown 15 days ago and connections now turn to cheekpieces; still not fully exposed and can't be ignored.
