Form & Verdict

Winner of the 2021 Winter Derby, but only seen twice since June of that year and was returning from another absence when fifth of 11 in first-time cheekpieces (retained) at Lingfield (1m2f, Polytrack) in November, finishing about 4l behind stablemate Harrovian; looks the stable second string again, but is proven here (C&D winner in 2019).

Landed the Winter Derby three years ago but has lacked consistency since and faces a difficult assignment against some unexposed/better types in this field; yard has a much stronger chance with Lion's Pride.

First run since January 2023 but he returns with his trainer among the winners and he's well treated judged on his AW exploits when last seen; has won twice on turf and he's an interesting contender; watch the betting.

Form & Verdict

Placed in all three starts at Lingfield (1m2f, Polytrack) including when third of 11 in a Listed contest there in November (Forest Of Dean and Tyson Fury behind) following 134 days off; makes his Tapeta debut, but is closely related to a winner around here; looks the one to beat.

Winner of 11 races including three on the AW, one of which was over 8.6f here; beaten a neck at Lingfield (1m2f, Polytrack) last time and, despite a 2lb rise for that, he can't be dismissed as that was very much a return to form.

Form & Verdict

Ultra-consistent sort whose seven wins have all come on Tapeta (record here reads 1121311); doesn't have much to find with the Gosden pair on these terms and his record on the surface makes him hard to dismiss, but a suspicion that further suits him better these days.

Form & Verdict

Has some useful form on turf and was returning from a year off having been gelded in the meantime when sixth of 11 on AW debut at Lingfield (1m2f, Polytrack; behind Harrovian and Forest Of Dean) in November; didn't enjoy the smoothest of passages and may have needed the run, but he will still need to take a significant step forward to win this.
