Form & Verdict

Won a 7f novice at Kempton (Polytrack) on debut last March but he's 0-15 since and has finished down the field in France in his last six runs; has rejoined Amy Murphy and now goes back up in trip but he needs a major revival on this return to AW; blinkers removed.

Seemed to benefit from going over 1m2f (and this new headgear combination) when runner-up here two starts back and fared less well back in trip at Chelmsford on Thursday, though the draw didn't help; others preferred kept to 1m.

Four-time AW winner who scored off 10lb higher at Southwell (1m) last November but he's not finished closer than sixth in his seven runs since; turf record now stands at 0-13 and he has questions to answer at this new trip; tongue-tie added.

Two AW wins for David O'Meara, including over 1m here; made a low-key start for this yard in May but he's got back near his best with close calls in last three runs; nudged up 2lb for his second over C&D last time but he should make another bold bid with cheekpieces added.

Improved her record to 2-5 when landing a 7f Kempton handicap (Polytrack) in June and she had an excuse from wide draw over 1m at that track last time; only 1lb higher than for last win and she could resume her progress on this drop back to 7f; dangerous.

Won 2yo debut; winless since but consistent at 7f/6f on AW in the second half of 2022, including over C&D; not in much form since back in December from a short break but two of those three runs were at 5f and he's not badly treated at present; often wears headgear but not today.

Generally progressive gelding who made it 5-14 on AW when scoring over C&D last month; that was a last-gasp win but he really knuckled down well out wide and a 3lb rise for that success looks fair; big player again.
