Form & Verdict

Won over C&D (soft) last September and it's possible the return to this track will prompt a revival; however, having run consistently well in defeat for most of the season he's been soundly beaten the last twice, most recently at Newcastle on Friday; something to prove.

Form & Verdict

He's an inconsistent 15-race maiden but, having dropped to a career-low mark, he was a close third of 14 at Ayr ten days ago; back up just 1lb here and he's a contender if repeating that latest form.

Good return from a break when second over 8.6f here under Lewis Edmunds last month; hung left under pressure under a 7lb claimer when failing to build on that at Newcastle a week later but he has a rail on his inside this time and Edmunds is also back in the plate.

Has a good record fresh, winning over 1m here in 2022 (good) and finishing a close second on Newcastle AW last year (1m); won at Newcastle in first-time cheekpieces on final start last year (1m); headgear retained and a possible, but shorter trip and soft ground are not ideal.

Form & Verdict

Unplaced favourite at Catterick nine days ago but was trapped wide and he was in fine form previously, with two 7f wins (good to soft/soft) sandwiching a head defeat over this C&D (soft); could leave his latest performance well behind and pose a major threat.

2-7 since switching to current stable in July, with both wins gained over 7f on ground slower than good; also suited by a quicker surface and his recent defeat at Catterick can be excused (trapped wide throughout); respectable fourth at Hamilton (1m) yesterday.

Her form went backwards after a promising start to her 2yo career last summer but she was an encouraging second at Thirsk (1m, soft) a fortnight ago in a first-time tongue-tie (retained), and could be in the mix if that return to form wasn't a one-off.

Won four times between Febuary and April this year and he was returning from 120 days off when not beaten far in mid-division at Newcastle (AW) last month; could improve for that run and has a lower mark to work with now back on grass; won on turf in April and he's respected.

His last three wins have come over 7f and his recent close second was at Catterick (7f, good to soft), where he's a five-time winner; however, he is capable elsewhere (this is his first run here) and he's kept on well over 1m on a few occasions this year; could be in the shake-up.

All of his nine wins have come on turf but he's held his form since his last success at Ayr (1m2f) in September and has run well here (1m2f/7f) in last two starts; this big step back up in trip is a positive and he shouldn't be far away.
