OR: 107

Form & Verdict

Smart and reliable mare who has been a superb servant to her connections; better than ever this summer, winning two handicaps over C&D (good/good to firm) and running well when second in a Pontefract Listed race last time; she's the clear pick on form and almost certainly the one to beat.

Prolific mare who was successful in this race in 2021 (off 5lb lower); more miss than hit in 2023 but her Group 3 third at York in July was up there with her best efforts; usually wears cheekpieces but blinkers are now tried; no surprise to see her go well as Michael Dods bids to win this race for the third season in a row.

Form & Verdict

Talented filly on her day; has lacked consistency since running well in last year's Falmouth but a fourth of nine in Group 2 at Newbury (7f, good to firm) last time was probably her best effort of 2022; races freely and this drop back to 6f for only the second time is an interesting move; could have a say.

Losing sequence goes back to her Listed win at Newmarket (6f, heavy) in October 2020; well held on reappearance but fared much better when third of seven to Ebro River at Chester five weeks ago; not discounted, and rain would increase her chance.

A late-maturer who has shown significant improvement this year, posting a career best in eight-runner handicap at the Curragh (6f, good; 3-1 favourite; convincingly) three weeks ago; went down narrowly in a Listed race over the same C&D in June and he's well worth another go in this grade.

Lightly raced for his age and has already more than paid his way, winning two valuable handicaps last summer (including over 5f here) and seeing off 18 rivals at Newmarket to score on his reappearance; went off favourite for Great St Wilfrid on first start since leaving Michael Dods but finished down the field; has a bit to find with several of these; cheekpieces now fitted.

Form & Verdict

As his form-figures indicate, he's having an excellent season in handicaps, and his latest Newmarket win (6f, good to firm) continued his improvement; it's possible there's still more in the tank and he's much respected, but this is a far tougher test of his credentials.

Veteran who retains plenty of verve, surging back to form in a Shergar Cup race at Ascot (5f) last month; just as effective at 6f but his York record is nothing special and he could be vulnerable to younger legs.
