Nowhere near the force of old, and although his best efforts this term have been recorded here, he's operated too far below a winning level latterly to persuade he can capitalise on his latest career-low mark.

Runs off the same mark as when winning at Carlisle (1m, good to firm) in June; has also won on soft ground there; however, his form has been patchy across his last four starts and he needs to raise his game.

Has finished last on two of his last three starts, most recently at Ripon a fortnight ago; however, good runs have firmly outnumbered poor ones since May and he runs off his last winning mark from July; not discounted.

5lb out of the handicap which won't help him snap a 13-race losing run but he's run some good races this season, including when fourth at Hamilton last time, whereas the majority of these have something to prove regarding their current form; no forlorn hope.

Form & Verdict

Tailed off when favourite at Carlisle 16 days ago, when found to have an irregular heartbeat; that dents confidence in his claims but he was in really good form previously and has won three times this year; won twice here in 2017 and he's a contender this afternoon if back on song.

Hasn't progressed from her debut win at Wolverhampton (8.6f, AW) in April and needs to produce more than she's managed in her first two handicaps (both 1m on good ground); didn't look an easy ride last time out in June (hung right); however, she has a useful pedigree and returns from a break with her stable in excellent form; retains potential.

Sent off 15-8 favourite and overcame a slow start when making a successful debut at Wolverhampton (8.6f, Tapeta) last month; finished last of six at Kempton (1m) 24 days ago but wasn't beaten in that useful conditions event and she looks on a workable mark now switched to a handicap; respected on turf debut.

Down the field in July on his last two starts and needs to get back on track; however, his stable's horses can return to form from out of the blue and he's firmly in the equation on his May/June exploits.

Second on stable debut at Hamilton (1m1f) in June and now 7lb lower but not so good since; there was market interest in him at Beverley yesterday when he wore first-time cheekpieces and looked stretched by the 1m2f on soft.
