Form & Verdict

Having his eighth start; showed all the trademarks of a Johnston-trained runner when digging deep to get the job done at Sandown (7f, good; off 2lb lower) last time; should have nothing to fear from fourth-placed The Toff and it's hard to envisage him not being involved.

Form & Verdict

His only real blip came when well beaten in the Chesham here; always had a good position on his nursery debut at Lingfield (7f AW) so there were no excuses in finishing second behind one making it 2-2 in handicaps; might be vulnerable once more having gone up 3lb.

Form & Verdict

Has got closer in each of her runs and hit the target on her nursery debut at Newbury (7f, good) despite enduring a troubled run at key stages of the race; it's reasonable to upgrade that effort and the runner-up has since gone one better in an AW novice when odds-on; 6lb rise looks manageable.

Won a 7f nursery at Newbury as a 2yo; seen only three times last year, shaping well on her reappearance at York before seemingly taking a big step forward when beaten 3l into fifth in a Listed race at Chantilly (1m, good to soft); absent since down the field in an Ascot Group 3 eight months ago; improvement required.

Form & Verdict

Made fairly hard work of landing the odds in a Salisbury maiden (6f) and was put in his place at Listed level back there when 7l behind the winner; has had only the three runs and can no doubt improve some more, but this mark looks challenging.

Sole win in 6f maiden as 2yo; had a difficult 3yo season but he wasn't far away in well-contested races at 1m and 7f (on good) last spring and is much lower in the weights now; can improve on a respectable reappearance on the AW 11 days ago now back on turf; every chance.

Twice a beaten favourite in maidens and is now 0-5 after two defeats in handicaps, last time finishing behind Urban Sprawl; his previous third at Doncaster did read better and that form offers some hope off this same mark.

2 yo Gelding

OR: 95

Form & Verdict

Gelded after getting off the mark in a 7f Epsom maiden when wearing first-time cheekpieces (retained since) and raised his game further in finishing third of 14 runners in a valuable nursery at York (7f, good); did look on a tough mark going into that and has a further 2lb nudge to deal with here; still a fairly solid option.
