Form & Verdict

Had plenty to do at the weights on his return from wind surgery last weekend, when racing freely in front; is entitled to have come on for that but there's not much wiggle room off his current mark.

J: Saffie Osborne

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.

J: Harry Davies

T: Hugo Palmer

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.

Form & Verdict

This is tougher than he's used to and is upped another 5lb for his recent 1m4f Lingfield win; will need more again now going beyond 1m4f for the first time but has been a sharp improver for this yard since undergoing wind surgery for the second time, winning four times, and he can do better yet.

T: David O’Meara

Five-time AW winner who was a close third off a reduced mark over C&D last month but he failed to back that up at Southwell (1m4f) last time; now takes a big step back up in trip but he's generally struggled in his last nine starts and comes with risks attached; hood back on.

Gradually lost his way after winning at Newcastle (1m4f, Tapeta) last March, but having dropped 4lb lower than when last successful he was only beaten two necks into third of nine at Lingfield (2m, Polytrack) this month; races off the same mark, but more will be needed back down in trip.

On the downgrade in recent times and lacks consistency now; has won on Tapeta but needs to bounce back from an ordinary Kempton effort, when some way behind stablemate Imperium.

Often front-runner; one of his big days came over C&D in 2018 when winning the Northumberland Plate; not in the same form these days as a 10yo and although he's still been competitive on three of his last four starts this winter, those were with falling marks in handicaps; more to do today.

Has run well on Tapeta but is 0-12 on the surface and he does seem more effective on Polytrack; hard to knock him for winning six of his last 12 starts otherwise but he's never done it off a mark this high.

Four Polytrack wins since being trained in Britain and he's only run once on Tapeta; has slid to a handy mark but he pulled hard back up to 1m4f behind Barenboim last time and stamina is the big question mark.
