Form & Verdict

Not as good as he was and has become inconsistent; it's far from certain he'll repeat his latest effort, which came in a first-time visor, but holds leading claims on that.

More consistent this year for headgear going on, so it's perhaps surprising to see her run without tonight; otherwise there was nothing wrong with her latest Southwell second off the same mark and stall 5 is fine for one happiest on the sharp end.

Lacked consistency for Chelsea Banham but does have three wins to his name, including two here; makes his debut for new yard 4lb below his last successful mark but his five previous runs at beyond 5f were all poor.

On the downgrade this year and, while he's on a career-low mark now (5lb lower than on turf), he's going to need to improve on recent efforts if he's to win on the AW for the first time since 2019.
