Form & Verdict

Untested at this trip and he wasn't at his best at Lingfield on Saturday, but he has a solid record at Kempton and was a good second over 1m4f here two starts ago; he's a contender if seeing out the distance.

Seen more often on the AW these days and 1lb lower than when winning at Kempton (2m) in January, but showed little on his return to turf at Newmarket (1m6f, good) four weeks ago; enough to prove for now.

Won two in a row over C&D in the autumn having been upped in trip and landed the hat-trick at Southwell (2m2f) last month; climbing the weights but this lightly raced 5yo is thriving and could still have more to offer.

Most likeable mare who bagged a pair of 2m Ascot victories this summer; not at her best in the Cesarewitch when last seen, but this dual C&D scorer goes well fresh so she's a player off a still workable mark.

Extremely reliable since upped to staying trips, including a narrow win over Temporize at Ascot (2m, soft) in July; relished every yard on the Southwell AW when scoring easily over 2m2f last December, so she has the tools to run well if she can adapt to this higher grade and much larger field.

In good form last summer when these cheekpieces went on, winning from the front at Chester (2m) before a solid sixth of 14 at Glorious Goodwood (2m4f, good to firm); absent since but could be in the shake-up if fully tuned up for his return to action; has won on Polytrack.

8 yo Gelding

OR: 83

Form & Verdict

His form can be up and down but he made it two wins from his last three starts when scoring over C&D in September last time out; a 3lb rise isn't harsh and he can be in the mix if at the top of his game after a break.

Down the field at Southwell three weeks ago but was found to be lame; prior to that he returned from a break with a close fourth over this C&D and he has a good record at Kempton; could bounce back with a good run.

Habitual slow-starter who ran as well as could have been expected over C&D last time after fluffing the stalls completely; that was better on his second run back from a break and he's on his last winning mark, so he's a player if getting away fairly.
