Form & Verdict

Has been capable of smart form in his time as when beaten a neck in the 2020 St Leger; unable to match that sort of level since, but he didn't run badly on his second start back from over a year off (gelded and underwent wind surgery in the meantime) when fourth of nine in a Kempton Listed event (1m4f, Polytrack) in November; respected.

Form & Verdict

Useful AW stayer who beat Earlofthecotswolds in a four-runner contest at Wolverhampton (16.5f, Tapeta) a year ago, but finished behind that rival in both subsequent meetings; in good form at his beloved Kempton lately (5-7 there), but is a versatile sort as regards surface and seems sure to make his presence felt; stable also runs Raymond Tusk.

Nine AW wins, the most recent in this event 12 months ago when it was still a conditions race; has slipped to an attractive mark but the veteran has a doubt over current form, having posted two duck eggs this year; perhaps on the wane.

Form & Verdict

Highly tried in two of his last three starts (on turf) including in the Ascot Gold Cup, but he was a revelation on the AW early last year, rattling off a hat-trick under attacking rides including the Marathon Championship final at Newcastle (2m, Tapeta) in April; off for four months, but can go well fresh and looks the one to beat.

Often front-runs but hasn't for his best results here; pulled too hard in this race two years ago; an improved performer last term and he's well handicapped judged on plenty of that form, but the scale of defeat in his two AW runs this year is a concern; visor replaces usual cheekpieces.

Often front-runs; well beaten on 2023 return but won eight days later, so perhaps his heavy defeat in a warm race five weeks ago should not be viewed too harshly; had a solid campaign last year and although his score is just 1-9 on AW, he is effective over C&D; each-way chance if back on song.

Two AW wins for Charlie Appleby (1m4f/1m6f) as a 3yo, but missed 2021 and showed nothing in just two appearances last year, including when well beaten on stable debut at Dundalk (2m, Polytrack) in November; cheekpieces will need to make a dramatic difference.

Form & Verdict

Effective on the AW having won a Newcastle conditions event (2m, Tapeta) at the end of 2019; showed he was still capable of useful form when second of seven in a Group 3 at Newbury (1m4f, good) last April, but hasn't matched that form since and returns to the Flat after just a fair effort over hurdles; has little to find on these terms, but others make greater appeal nonetheless.

Still well short of replicating his smart Flat best over hurdles when fourth on December 2022's handicap debut, but finally gets to try further than 2m in this sphere now and has been gelded; won't mind a dryout.

Satisfactory third in handicap at Newmarket (1m4f) in May after a four-month break, but no show from a wide draw at Royal Ascot (1m6f) latest; still capable of smart form last year but very rarely seen over this far (second in 2m Ascot Group 3 in 2019) and looks set for a supporting role.
