Form & Verdict

7yo who won this race off 13lb higher in 2021; just one win since then but that came off a higher mark at Salisbury in June and he was an eyecatching third over C&D (favourite) 13 days ago; visor is now removed but most of his wins have come without headgear and he's an interesting contender.

Form & Verdict

Has record of 213322 since wearing cheekpieces and his latest second was a close call behind a major improver at Newcastle (6f; pulled clear of third) last Monday; on same mark here and has leading claims if he can match that form on this drop to 5f.

J: Harry Russell

Now 1lb lower than for last-gasp C&D win in September but was unable to land a telling blow in two C&D races last month and needs to respond positively to a change of headgear today.

Form & Verdict

The third leg of his summer hat-trick came off 2lb higher at Doncaster but he's finished down the field in his last three runs including twice at Southwell this winter; has won over this C&D but he has a bit to prove and needs to get back in the groove.

Completed a hat-trick on turf/Tapeta last summer and having dropped 2lb below his last winning mark, he ran better when third of six at Wolverhampton (5f, Tapeta) 11 days ago, finishing less than a length behind Bellagio Man; each-way claims if continuing his resurgence.

Form & Verdict

Saw off a subsequent winner when completing the hat-trick at Lingfied (5f, Polytrack) in November but he was only fourth of six there last month; return to Tapeta is no problem but he looks weighted near his best again and others are more persuasive.

One of a number of prominent racers in the field; fully effective under today's conditions (won a Class 5 over C&D in November) but he will need to step up on his latest effort.

Form & Verdict

Hold-up performer who is not easy to predict but he won over C&D in November and bounced back with a creditable third over C&D 20 days ago; got squeezed out early on in that race and has possibilities if things go his way this time.

Made it three wins in a row when scoring off 1lb higher here (7f) in March 2021, but he's not added to his tally since and was well below form at Southwell (5f, second run for new yard) last time; still unexposed at this trip but he needs to bounce back after that last run; tongue-tie is removed and cheekpieces go on.
