Form & Verdict

Narrowly beaten at Newcastle in July, on her return from five months off; chances if she can build on that, with cheekpieces employed for the first time, but only turf win gained more than three years ago.

Joie De Vivre

9st 11lb

J: David Nolan

T: Martin Todhunter

Win and placed form over hurdles this winter and she's a dual Flat winner (1m4f/1m6f) who enjoys soft ground; on a reasonable mark and the return of cheekpieces is no bad thing.

Form & Verdict

Two wins earlier in the summer and ran to at least that level when third at Musselburgh ten days ago; drops to Class 5 for first time since a Doncaster win in June and this thorough stayer certainly enters the argument.

Form & Verdict

C&D winner in June but disappointed in next two starts; firmly back on track at Ripon last month (1m4f) with a decisive win and 5lb rise for that might not stop him following up if showing the same determination.

Consistent at up to 16.5f on turf between May and September last year (record 322233112); makes his AW debut in first-time cheekpieces after 199 days off, but including his racecourse debut he doesn't have a great record fresh.

Form & Verdict

3-7 in handicaps, the latest when scrambling home at Lingfield (AW) last month, and no disgrace when second to a progressive rival at Chelmsford next time; effective on turf as shown when twice runner-up at Sandown earlier in the summer; can make the running.

Form & Verdict

Nearly three years since he won and unplaced in first 12 starts for this yard, during which time his mark fell by 25lb; stopped the rot with a Ffos Las second last month but not enough to suggest another win is close.
