Form & Verdict

Front-runner who has won his last four (7f-7.4f, various ground), pulling clear with the second at Beverley latest; there can be optimism this progressive 3yo has more left in the tank and a 4lb rise may not stop him.

Won on his stable debut at Ayr (7f, good) last month and followed up there (7f, good to soft) ten days later; clearly thriving and he could have more to offer for his current stable; firmly in calculations.

Made it three wins for the year when scoring at Ayr (1m, good) last month; fared best of those ridden prominently when fifth of ten at Ayr (7f, good to soft) and this highly admirable 5yo can give a good account; has won here four times, including over C&D on soft.

Tough handicapper who ran a fine race when third in the Ayr Gold Cup on his first crack at 6f; third, beaten over 3l, off this mark at York four weeks ago (6f, soft) but that only tells half the story as he trounced the other runners on the stands' side and was also comfortably best of those to race up with the pace; still capable of better at this trip and he's a much better horse now than when last seen on AW (when he appeared to handle Tapeta well enough); deserves a good prize.

Form & Verdict

Not at the top of his game on his last three starts but it was a tough Listed task most recently; now just 1lb higher than when winning at Chester (7.5f, good to soft) in July and he went close in this race last year (soft) on his sole previous visit to Musselburgh; not ruled out.

Two good runs in defeat Chester this summer and he's better than he showed there last time; however, his peak efforts have come at Chester and he takes on some bang-in-form rivals on his first visit to Musselburgh.

Form & Verdict

Won at Newcastle (6f, AW) in June and denied a clear run when keeping on for fourth at Doncaster (6.5f, soft); his stamina for 7f isn't guaranteed but this trip is well worth another go judged on that latest evidence.

Only 1lb higher than for Haydock win last June (6f, good to firm; cheekpieces first time); shaped quite nicely on his return at Newmarket, held up in a race in which little landed a blow from the back; won second time out last year and, after two starts without them, the cheekpieces are back on today (hooded latest); capable of a big run with drying ground in his favour.

Below best over C&D last May but his close third in this race (good) on return in 2022 shows he can be taken seriously off his current mark, just 2lb higher than his Haydock win last June; shouldn't be far away.

Form & Verdict

It was his first run on slow turf for quite some time when he snapped a 24-race losing sequence at Ayr (6f, heavy) last Thursday; that may have given his confidence a boost and he seemed to stay the trip in a rare 7f run at Lingfield (AW) in August; respected under 5lb penalty.

Won his final two starts last year (7f, AW) and landed the hat-trick in a big field at York (7f, good to soft) in May; however, two lesser performances have followed in June and August, and he needs to turn things around.
