Form & Verdict

Well handicapped on his best 1m4f form last year but he has a mixed record this season and was a remote last of four at Newmarket last time; goes back up in trip and down in grade but losing run is up to 15 and others are more convincing.

J: Niall Houlihan

Quite useful on Flat up to 1m4f for the Johnstons; may well turn out to be better in this sphere, having twice won easily in 2m novice races at Newbury either side of a close third at Doncaster; 4-11 when he won by a street last time; tries an extra half mile but respected as a good prospect.

Quite a useful Flat performer at up to 1m4f for Mark and Charlie Johnston; beat a dual previous winner with a nice bit in hand on his hurdling debut here (good; under Niall Houlihan) and looked as though he would follow up at Doncaster before running out of puff late on; sets the standard.

Form & Verdict

Showed consistent form in his first six runs but he found plenty of progress after a gelding operation when trouncing his rivals at Carlisle (1m3f, good) last week; well treated under a penalty for that success (due to be 4lb higher in future) and should take some stopping if he can back that up.

Form & Verdict

Showed progressive form in novice events including a 1m Kempton win (AW) in December and a close second at Leicester (1m2f, good to firm) on her return in July; looked on a dangerous mark for her handicap debut at Goodwood last time but was weak in the market and she never got involved; may not have handled the undulations but that was a heavy defeat and she has a bit to prove at this new trip.

Form & Verdict

Has won four times at around 1m4f (AW/good) this year, the most recent over C&D in May; 5lb higher than for that success but he's finished a clear second under positive tactics at Pontefract and here in last two runs and still looks on a workable mark; in the mix.

Off the mark at the ninth attempt when making all over 1m4f at Newbury (good) two weeks ago; up 4lb but he raised his form to a new level with that dominant display and is strongly respected in his follow-up bid.

Sole win (16 races) in August 2022; has edged down the weights and has career-low mark, with penultimate start (June) in particular showing that significant ability remains, but his record beyond 1m4f is a concern.

Form & Verdict

Recorded his second win when scoring in a visor at Newcastle (1m4f, AW) in June but he flopped in his bid for a double at Chelmsford last time; had some issues with a loose horse that day but he's not easy to predict and needs to bounce back again on this return to turf; risks attached.
