Form & Verdict

Well placed to land a 5f hat-trick at Lingfield in January; back to best when second at Chelmsford (6f) in July and caught too far back when fifth at Kempton the following month; capable off this mark if fully primed after a 79-day break.

Five wins on the AW, including on Tapeta at Wolverhampton, but losing run is up to 19 and there was nothing in three starts since returning from six months off to suggest that is about to change.

Brought quietly through the ranks to win four times over 7f and 6f in July; made further progress when second to the thriving Adaay In Asia at Ascot (6f) in August but he needs to shrug off a couple of below-par efforts since; drawn widest.

Prolific last summer and he got off the mark for this campaign with a cosy win in a Class 2 at Newbury in August (7f, good to soft), weaving his way through the field and picking up smartly (cheekpieces on for the first time); disappointed at Ascot next time (reportedly unsuited by getting no cover); still feasibly treated but taking on some fast horses on his first 5f run for some time.

Has lots of ability and often the victim of races not being run to suit when with former yard; good second at Yarmouth on return to Robert Cowell's yard 19 days ago (5f, good to firm); good mark but often slowly away and this isn't a track at which to be conceding cheap lengths early.

Two wins in August, including a 22-runner handicap over an extended 5f at York's Ebor meeting; also a creditable sixth of 24 in the Ayr Gold Cup and he raced wide of where the main action unfolded when down the field at York recently; could still be in good form and was runner-up on his previous visit here.

Smart juvenile who showed he's trained on when second in 6f Ascot Group 3 on his reappearance; has thrown in three disappointing runs since, including in a Newmarket July meeting handicap, but it's possible a 105-day break could have a reviving effect and he did win over C&D on debut.

6yo who made it 3-7 over C&D when justifying favouritism in a Class 4 event in June; that was a clearcut success but this is tougher off 5lb higher on this big step back up in grade and all of his turf wins have come on good to firm; blinkers added.

Form & Verdict

Front-runner; has progressed well with racing and had Gale Force Maya back in second when winning a 6f Listed contest at Pontefract in August; ran poorly in Ascot Group 3 last time, though, and she'll require a really smart effort from such a lofty mark back in a handicap.

Well beaten on turf last two starts but she's 0-10 on the grass as opposed to an impressive 4-5 on AW (all at Chelmsford, including a 6f handicap win off 3lb lower in August); the draw could have been kinder but she's still a dangerous one to discount back on an artificial surface.

Had a fine spell after moving to David O'Meara, with the Stewards' Cup the highlight of his 2023 campaign; ran well on his return to turf here 17 days ago, third of 18 and in front of some reopposing rivals; was well positioned there, though, and he may need slow ground to win races of this nature nowadays.
