Sole win from 14 starts was at Wolverhampton (8.6f, AW) last November; now 7lb lower than for that success but he's finished in rear in last two runs (turf/Polytrack) and needs to turn things around in new headgear

slowly into stride, niggled along soon after start, in touch with leaders, pushed along over 3f out, drifted right and made challenge 2f out, led inside final furlong, faced strong challenge final 110yds, just held on (trainer's rep said, regards the improved form shown, gelding had benefitted from the application of a first-time visor on this occasion)

Form & Verdict

9yo who handles most ground and is a nine-time winner including over C&D; has returned from a break with two creditable thirds on turf (7f, good) this summer and latest was from a tough draw at Chester; his hold-up style can depend on luck and a good pace but he's respected back at this track.

Madrinho

J: Alistair Rawlinson

T: Tony Carroll

Almost two years since he won and is knocking on now but he remains pretty consistent for his age; has won a couple of times round here and, while he'll need luck if dropped in as usual from a wide stall, he remains capable back in headgear.

Getting long in the tooth now and hasn't won for a while but chased home Reel Power in C&D classified race in July and was close second to He's Our Star in that grade over 7f here last month; probably won't be far away.

Form & Verdict

Prolific winner who has scored twice here (7f/1m) this season and was a close third behind a progressive 3yo at Yarmouth (7f) last time; that form has been boosted by the runner-up since and she's strongly respected off an unchanged mark; all nine wins have been on good/good to firm.

Form & Verdict

Took advantage of a reduced mark when winning over 1m here (good to firm) in May but he's not quite hit the same level in three subsequent runs; went close over C&D in the spring but he needs to step up again on this drop back in trip; stablemate of Madrinho.

Five-time course winner (7f-1m); out of form in sprint handicaps since returning from break in June (four runs) but will appreciate today's drop in grade, and this trip ought to be much more suitable.

Form & Verdict

Hold-up filly who has won three times on slow and fast ground this season, including over C&D in June and at Leicester (7f) last month; couldn't land a blow when fifth here last time but that was in a Class 4 event and she still looks on a workable mark; dangerous dropped back in trip and grade.

Form & Verdict

Made a good start for Jim Boyle when scoring off 4lb lower at Epsom (7f, good to firm) last month; probably went off too hard when fifth on AW at Lingfield last time but he's not easy to predict and this looks competitive back up in grade; others are more persuasive.

Form & Verdict

Ended a lengthy losing run with his clearcut success over C&D (first-time cheekpeices) 19 days ago but he couldn't pose a threat under a penalty at Salisbury next time; made some late headway in that race but he's 3lb higher here and needs to find some extra spark back at this track.
