Form & Verdict

4yo who was resurgent over 1m4f in the summer, including an emphatic C&D win; his form slumped at Ffos Las last time but he had an excuse on that step up to 1m6f and he remains well treated on his old form; looks interesting back in trip.

Form & Verdict

Has a mixed record this season but she got off the mark with a front-running win at Leicester (1m4f, good) last month and backed that up with a creditable second behind an improver at Nottingham (1m6f) last time; on same mark here and she's respected on this drop back in trip.

Form & Verdict

Three-time winner at 1m4f and latest was over C&D last August; 0-10 since then but he's run some good races off a sliding mark this season and didn't really get the breaks behind an unexposed handicap blot at Lingfield last time; should have some say.

Has won five times this season including at Newcastle (1m4f, Tapeta) on his penultimate run; never got involved at Lingfield (AW) last time but was forced wide in that tactical race and he could resume his progress if things go more to plan this time.

Two wins in small fields over 1m4f at Doncaster in May/June; ran respectably in form terms in last three outings, but there are some issues to be ironed out after slow starts in her last two runs and she still has something to prove on Tapeta.

Form & Verdict

Had form figures of 21312 in his first five handicaps but he fluffed his line badly at Ascot in July and was quiet at Salisbury on his return last month; has bit to prove with cheekpieces now added and he's still 6lb higher than for last win.

Made it 3-3 on AW when scoring at Newcastle (1m2f, Tapeta) last month but he struggled in a Racing League event there last time; takes a big drop back in grade but he has several major blips in his profile and comes with risks attached on this step back up in trip.

Three wins on Tapeta early in the year, including over C&D, but he struggled in his final run in the spring and finished last of six at Newcastle (1m4f) on his recent return; back on last winning mark but has bit to prove and he needs to get back near best.

Easily won at Brighton (1m2f, good to firm) in August and he followed up at Epsom (1m4f, good) nine days later; finished fifth of eight there last time but that was in a Class 4 and he still looks feasibly treated on his penultimate form; dangerous on this drop back in grade.

Form & Verdict

Made a promising start when fourth at Haydock (1m, soft) last October but he was disappointing in final two runs for Kevin Ryan; returns from another break but he's been gelded and this big step up in trip could suit on his handicap debut (brother to 10.5f-1m7f winner); one to keep an eye on.
