J: Tom Marquand

T: Michael Madgwick

C&D winner; failed to win in 2023 but he's kicked off his 2024 campaign with two Lingfield wins (1m4f and 1m5f); both wins have been backed up by the Topspeed figure and he's still feasibly treated despite his latest 2lb rise; strong claims in his hat-trick bid.

Form & Verdict

7yo who has turned things around with his C&D wins (good to firm) in his last two starts; back up 7lb in the weights but he forged clear in a classified event last time and remains well treated on his old form; big player again in hat-trick bid.

Temur Khan

J: Gina Mangan

T: Tony Carroll

9yo who's probably best know for his four wins at Brighton, latest last October (1m4f, good to firm); has one piece of soft-ground form there (2021) but didn't show in three starts here to start his 2023 campaign and no shock if this run is similar.

Form & Verdict

All four wins have been at around 1m4f; back on same mark as for his success at Wolverhampton (AW) in February but he's finished in rear in all three runs since; has some questions to answer and he needs to get back near best.

Last won in February 2022 and has been absent for 387 days; well treated on form early that year but there is more for him to prove these days on turf, including as sole run on softer than good was a heavy defeat.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark at the 29th attempt with a clearcut win at Bath (1m6f, firm) last month and she backed that up with a creditable second behind Temur Khan over C&D (classified event) last time; has a swing in the weights with her old rival and she's respected back in a handicap.

Doubled her tally with emphatic success at Yarmouth (1m6f, good to firm) last month and has finished third twice since, more recently behind Dirham Emirati and Urban Forest over 1m5f here a fortnight ago; holds no secrets from the handicapper but probably won't be far away.

Form & Verdict

Eight-time course winner and her last success was by 11l over C&D (good to firm) in May; looks very interesting on that form but she's been well held here in her last four runs and needs a major revival.

9yo who was disappointing here (1m4f) last time but she is an eight-time course winner and was runner-up over C&D (good) on her penultimate run; that was a bold bid from the front and she has possibilities if she can recapture that form.

Runner-up in the first two of her four starts for Ralph Beckett as a 2yo, but she's generally struggled since and has finished tailed off over 1m4f in last two starts; record now stands at 0-15 and has a lot to prove; blinkers worn in last two runs are removed.

Went close to getting off the mark over 1m5f here (good; acts on good to soft) in July; lesser effort upped to 1m6f over C&D next time but wasn't beaten far at Brighton since and worth another go at a staying trip.
