Form & Verdict

Two of her three turf wins have come at this track, both over 7f; she has finished second at Sandown on her last three starts, running right up to her recent best four weeks ago (1m, good to firm); should get a good pace to aim at today and she needs taking seriously.

5-27 around here; 6lb higher than when runner-up in this last year and has failed to beat a rival in either start since narrowly beating Dayzee at Lingfield (1m, Polytrack) in December; back off the same mark as for that success and has bounced back from a modest effort before, so not easily dismissed.

3 yo Colt

Form & Verdict

He had been looking exposed prior to dropping back to 1m and returning to the AW in recent starts, winning at Lingfield and Kempton before a creditable third at Wolverhampton 19 days ago; likely it was the trip, rather than the surface, that was the catalyst for the improvement and he can't be discounted.

Dual winner over shorter trips around here and won five times at around 1m4f on the AW early last year; 10lb lower than for the most recent, but hasn't been in the same form since and attempts this far for the first time on his 36th Flat start; enough to prove.

Running creditably over hurdles when last seen in May but he hasn't been at his best on the Flat for a while; this is weaker than he is used to but others are more appealing.

Both his wins have come on AW but he is effective on turf and didn't run badly over C&D 13 days ago; should remain competitive; one of two runners for the yard.

Form & Verdict

Went the wrong way for Richard Hughes, most recently finishing second of three in a 1m4f claimer at Leicester (subsequently claimed for £18,000); new yard quick to drop him in trip and he was rated 18lb higher this time last year so there is some handicapping scope there; betting instructive.

Three French Flat wins and he's 0-30 in Britain, though placed on many occasions; shaped quite well on hurdling debut but twice tailed off since; risky but opening mark of 83 would look lenient if showing his best.
