Form & Verdict

Stepping back up in distance has seen her enjoy a good year, winning over C&D in June and adding a further two 1m4f handicaps here in August and September; only third in her hat-trick bid three weeks ago but that was in a 0-70 and this looks more suitable; has won on good to soft and ran well in one attempt on soft; should be involved.

Brighton specialist who is 0-22 on AW surfaces but does act on Tapeta; not beaten far on her last four starts and is an each-way player again.

Won four times at Brighton in 2022; 0-13 last year and only fourth on her return to action on Saturday; conditions suit and she's capable at this level but she'll need to up her game if she's to gain her first AW win at the 22nd attempt.

Has done all his winning on turf but lost out only by a head in 1m2f Polytrack handicap at Chelmsford in November and his fourth over that C&D a few days later was also a decent effort; today's trip-and-surface combination will also suit; likely contender.

Form & Verdict

Ended 2021 with a Wolverhampton win (extended 1m1f) and he made light of a five-month absence to follow up at Lingfield (1m2f) in May; not quite so good since then but a wind operation since his latest run may help; best turf form has come on fast ground.

Form & Verdict

Son of Frankel who attracted support on his handicap debut at Chelmsford 12 days ago (1m) but was always on the back foot and could only plug on for third (ahead of Saxonhill who endured a wider trip); however, today's longer trip can help and he still has time to do better.

The winner of her first two 3yo runs, over 1m here and 1m2f at Lingfield (good and good to firm); beaten eight times since but she was a close third over 1m here in June when cheekpieces were tried for the first time; dangerous at this level if the slow ground holds no terrors.
