Form & Verdict

Course winner as a 3yo (6f) who is just 1lb higher than for the last leg of a hat-trick at Windsor (1m, good to firm) in May; a bit in-and-out in the meantime but capable of playing a part on the pick of his form.

Form & Verdict

Holds his form well, but his Ayr success (1m2f, good) in August is his only win in his last 24 starts and he is still 4lb higher; has won on Tapeta, but he will need to pull out more in order to win this on his first visit here.

Form & Verdict

Both wins have come on soft ground at Haydock (6f/7f); twice placed at Group 3 level and ran as well as he has ever done when third of the 20 runners in the Balmoral handicap at Ascot (1m, good to soft; first-time blinkers) four weeks ago; respected on that, but has to prove himself on the different surface being the only AW debutant in the field.

Form & Verdict

Has dropped to a handy mark, being 1lb lower than when successful at Chelmsford (1m, Polytrack) late last year, but not at his best lately as when sixth of ten back at Chelmsford (1m2f) on Tuesday; this sharp 1m looks an inadequate test for him now.

Was returning from a year off when sixth of the 20 runners in the Balmoral handicap at Ascot (1m, good to soft) four weeks ago, finishing just over a length behind Tacarib Bay; may not come on that much for it as he has a fine record fresh, but he ran well in his one start on Polytrack as a 3yo so may still have more to offer on the surface.

Bounced right back to form when winning over C&D in February but disappointed in the Lincoln Trial at Wolverhampton (8.6f, Tapeta) the following month and not seen since; can go well fresh and proven in the conditions so worth a second look, especially if market vibes are positive.

Dual winner here (7f) and has dropped 1lb below his last winning mark, but out of the frame in both starts since returning from 202 days off in August; finished around 9l behind Excel Power at Chelmsford (1m, Polytrack) last month and although the tongue-tie worn then is quickly removed, he still has enough to prove.
