Excels over 5f at Epsom and he finished last at Goodwood last time out; however, that was over 6f after an eight-week break and he was in good form previously; has run well here in the past and is not discounted.

Enjoying a fine summer and made it two wins from her last three starts when scoring by a short head in a small field at Salisbury (5f, good to firm) last Wednesday; this is more competitive but she's clearly thriving and can give another good account.

Form & Verdict

Made it 2-2 at Sandown when winning over C&D (good) in June and this 6yo displayed career-best form when landing a big-field handicap at Haydock (6f, good) a fortnight ago; up in the weights but he's a strong contender over a C&D that clearly suits extremely well.

3yo who has been keeping busy this summer and was a below-par fourth of six at Nottingham last Friday, which hints he may be ready for a break; however, he was highly progressive previously, including for two wins under Sam Feilden, and can play a leading role if last time was just a blip.

Hold-up horse who has been beaten 22 times since his last win in August 2020 and will need everything to drop right; however, he was a close second off this mark at Windsor (5f, good to firm) on Monday and this stiff finish should play to his strengths; could be bang there.

Front-running with fast starts of late and won over C&D (good) two starts ago; up there for a long way before fading over 6f at Brighton latest; despite the big field there isn't much obvious early pace in this line-up and he may be able to get across to the rail and lead from stall seven; can make another bold bid now back down in trip.

Hasn't been shaping as though a return to winning ways is imminent but he didn't run badly at Goodwood last time and his three wins have come at stiff courses in Pontefract (twice) and Carlisle so this track could be right up his street (ran well on sole visit in 2019); interesting contender.
