Form & Verdict

He has really got his act together this year, regularly placed before breaking his duck over 6f here last month; well backed when winning a well-contested Class 4 event here eight days ago (again 6f) and did it in fine style; should have the pace to cope with 5f and an obvious contender back into Class 6 company under a penalty.

Close to his last winning mark; finished runner-up in a big-field sprint at Ayr's Western Meeting (5f, Class 5; good to soft) last September; gradually lost his way on AW thereafter, but does return fresh from a break at a realistic level; soft to heavy ground (0-7) presents the risk factor.

Defied a 2lb lower mark at Lingfield last summer; near miss back at Lingfield in June but she was pulled up early at the same track in July; handles Tapeta and has fewer miles on the clock than many of these.

Tough mare who has been holding her form very well, most recently making all to beat Murbih over C&D last week; penalty against stiffer opposition and other pace influences mean she'll need to step forward again.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced filly who left the impression she would be adding to her long list of winning siblings when fourth at Haydock on her handicap debut in late June (5f, soft; 0-75); travelled very strongly on that occasion but still looked green when asked for her effort, eventually beaten 1.5l; potential to be better than a Class 6 performer and an interesting candidate.

Two turf wins this season, the latest of them achieved in impressive fashion at Nottingham ten days ago (5f, good to firm; made all); fully effective over C&D and able to race off a 5lb lower mark than for that recent win; of obvious interest.

Off the mark at the third attempt for this yard, making all over 6f at Catterick last month; has form over 5f on Tapeta and a 2lb rise for his win isn't excessive; one to consider.

Best effort since returning from eight months off last time, behind Hard Solution, and has a handy draw for a front-runner; a further 3lb drop sees him 6lb better off with that one and undeniably well treated.

Has been a regular here down the years, winning seven of his 34 course starts; 5f looked inadequate here last week and returning to this longer trip can help; possible he's just firmly on the downgrade but he's given the benefit of the doubt and could go well.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark at the 19th attempt when making all over C&D eight days ago (beat the reopposing Ustath into second); clearly well suited by the drop to 5f (just his second attempt) but the Topspeed figure was modest and will need more if he is to defy his penalty.
