Form & Verdict

Kept on well for breakthrough win in apprentice race at Windsor (6f, good to firm) this month; found Clashaniska too strong when second off same mark here 11 days ago and a 3lb rise has now taken effect; still has fairly low mileage and is not yet fully exposed as a sprinter.

Well suited by this C&D and ran well here last month when finding only an in-form rival too strong; blotted her copybook by refusing to race at Bath four weeks ago though and too much to prove after that.

Won twice over 6f last summer and has kept on well to make the frame over that trip on both outings since fitted with cheekpieces last month; claims on that evidence but needs to prove she can handle this track (well down the field on both previous visits).

C&D winner off 2lb lower last summer; no impact in first two starts this season but she caught the eye with her strong-finishing fourth back here (cheekpieces added) last month; was beaten less than 2l in that race and she's a big player if she can build on it; has raced exclusively on on good/good to firm on turf.

Dual course winner (6f/7f, good) since fitted with a hood in June; recent 7f form suggests the handicapper has her measure now, but she's been shaping as though this drop back to 6f might suit.

Has taken her form to a whole new level this season, collecting four course wins along the way (5f-6f); didn't fire at Windsor on Saturday but that doesn't necessarily mean her winning spree is over.

Best when coming late off a strong pace and 3lb lower than when successful under a hold-up ride at Lingfield last summer; placed a few times over this trip, but all nine wins have come over 6f so opposable on balance.

Without a win since 2019 but stuck well to his task when close third over 7f here (good) 11 days ago and can cope with this drop back to 6f; still on a workable mark after recent 2lb rise; probably won't be far away.

Came good for Adrian Wintle this month, beating Hagia Sophia in 15-runner C&D handicap (good); also ran well when placed in 7f classified here (soft) a week ago but a 6lb rise for the win seems to ask quite a lot of him.

Safely held over 7f on both starts for new stable this month; runner-up twice over 6f for Alice Haynes in May and has claims if today's drop back in trip enables him to recapture that form; swaps cheekpieces for refitted blinkers.

Dual Kempton AW winner (6f/7f) last November, but as a result is 14lb higher than when gaining his last turf success at Ffos Las (6f, good) last summer; probably needed last month's Windsor reappearance (6f, good to firm), but still well down the pecking order.
