Form & Verdict

Prolific winner at up to 1m2f and he got back on the scoresheet when running on strongly in the final furlong at Lingfield (7f, Polytrack) 23 days ago; only 2lb higher here but he couldn't pose a threat back at Lingfield last Saturday and needs to step up again after that.

Form & Verdict

Veteran who has managed only one win since December 2020 but that was off a higher mark last spring and he was beaten less than 2l at Southwell (1m, Tapeta) last Tuesday; could be dangerous, particularly if this sets up for his closing style.

J: Jason Watson

Five-time course winner (7f-1m); out of form in sprint handicaps since returning from break in June (four runs) but will appreciate today's drop in grade, and this trip ought to be much more suitable.

Form & Verdict

His last win was off 8lb higher at Chelmsford (1m, AW) but that was back in August 2021 and he's generally struggled under both codes in his last five runs; others preferred.

9st 3lb

J: William Carver

T: Simon Hodgson

Came good for Simon Hodgson at fourth attempt, leading close home at Brighton (1m, good; visored) last month; raced too freely in first-time blinkers there last week but still ran well; has the visor refitted here and this drop back to 7f is an interesting move; might be the answer.

Form & Verdict

7yo who is not easy to predict but he's a five-time AW winner who bounced back with a front-running third of 14 at Southwell (1m, Tapeta; cheekpieces reapplied) last time; remains well treated on his best form and his last win came at this track; respected.

This track brought out the best in him early in his career but he's been disappointing for his current yard and is hard to recommend despite a tumbling handicap mark.

Form & Verdict

Has a patchy record but she got back in the groove when beating the consistent Wadacre Grace (runs in 7:00) at Southwell (1m, Tapeta) last Monday; has a penalty but that was a comfortable success and she's a big player again if she can back that up.

Back from underwhelming stint hurdling when never counting on the Flat at Naas last month; blinkers now fitted and Keane takes over but probably wants better ground.
