5 yo Filly

Form & Verdict

Has claims on her best sprint form for Tom Ward but she's still a maiden after 14 starts and was down the field at Kempton in her final run last year; looks opposable for new yard after 332 days off.

T: Scott Dixon

Failed to win in 14 starts for Tom Ward but she made a winning stable debut over C&D last September (after 11 months off) and followed up one month later; well drawn for her reappearance and still feasibly weighted; stable are having a quiet summer though (2-124 since the start of April).

Form & Verdict

Just one win from 20 starts but that came at this track (6f) in April and he's finished placed at Southwell (5f) and over C&D in his last two runs; travelled strongly for a long way off the same mark last time and he's respected.

Form & Verdict

Won twice on Tapeta in January (including over C&D) and he's got back on track with creditable efforts at Southwell and Chelmsford in last three runs; his latest fourth was behind Morty but that was from a wide draw after a slow start and he's not ruled out off 1lb lower here.

Got back in the groove with his win off a reduced mark at Chelmsford (5f) and he followed up with a dominant display on Tapeta at Southwell on Monday; has another penalty in his third run in ten days but he remains feasibly treated and has good strike-rate of 4-11 on AW; big player.
