Scored twice over 7f on turf in June but his recent form is not so encouraging, only ninth in 7f Kempton handicap last month; more is required on his first go on Tapeta.

Form & Verdict

Both last season's wins came over 6f but he does stay this longer trip; last two runs haven't been his best and connections now reach for headgear; perhaps vulnerable once more.

Any number of short-priced defeats to go with his three wins; goes well here and made a fair comeback on Tapeta four weeks ago, but he's gone well fresh more than once, is 6lb above his last successful mark and drawn wide.

Made a winning handicap debut at Yarmouth in May; consistent without progressing afterwards until a blip at Wolverhampton last week; conditions shouldn't be an issue and he holds place claims.

Form & Verdict

The addition of cheekpieces saw everything fall into place at Yarmouth in June (7f, soft), running out a 5l winner of a Class 6 handicap; near miss over C&D in August (good Topspeed figure) but too free back at 1m last time, stopping quickly inside the final furlong; still has some handicapping potential and returning to 7f should help.

Without a win since 2022 but largely consistent on AW this year, and kept on to take second at Southwell (7f) on latest outing a fortnight ago; today's trip-and-ground combination will also suit; probably won't be far away.

His four wins this year included handicap wins at Haydock and Salisbury on his first two runs for this stable; his form has dipped the last twice but returning to a Class 5 should help.

Form & Verdict

She had dropped in the weights prior to a revival at Doncaster in July, finishing second over 7f before an easy 1m win two weeks later (good to firm); not quite so good turned out quickly but she has been given a 75-day break since and isn't handicapped out of things.

Two wins last year, including a 7f Southwell handicap off a 4lb higher mark; hasn't got going after a spring break though and looks risky despite his reduced mark.

Promising for Sir Michael Stoute early in his career (peak RPR of 94) but he found it tough going for this yard last year (missed 2020) and last week's Wolverhampton reappearance saw him well beaten; needs to have come on a good deal for that outing.
