Form & Verdict

Gained the 12th success of his career when readily seeing off seven rivals at Chelmsford in November; disappointing on his last two runs and, although this mark is in range, he does now have a bit to prove.

Form & Verdict

Marching through the ranks for his new connections, winning four of his last five starts over 6f on Tapeta (the defeat last month came over 7f); took his form to a new level when seeing off another bang-in-form rival at Southwell 12 days ago, an effort backed up by the Topspeed figure; he has a sharper track to contend with today but he has the pace to hold a position and the best could still be to come.

Five wins, four on Tapeta (including C&D), and now 3lb lower than for the latest of them; his form dipped at Newcastle last time when a strong gallop should have suited him; this winter's best form gives him claims if he can bounce back quickly.

Made hay last year, winning seven times, and has been banging at the door this winter too; nothing wrong with his latest short-head defeat at the hands of a thriving rival but a 2lb rise does ask a bit more of him.

Form & Verdict

A wind operation last summer has had a positive effect, winning three times since (including C&D); ran right up to his recent best when second at Southwell last week, trying to come from a long way back in a race not really run to suit; should get a good pace to aim at here and not ruled out despite the hike in class.

Progressive on AW last winter; placed in three runs back from a summer break, showing plenty of speed, and he continues to leave the impression there are races in him off this mark; back down in grade today; key player.

Looked promising early in his career but although he's been reliable since December, he hasn't managed to win this year; the handicapper has given him a chance, now 5lb lower than when second over C&D in June on his most recent AW run; other pace to contend with today.

Her winning spree came to an end in a 7f handicap here 11 days ago when a refusal to settle early contributed to her weak finish; dropping back to 6f can help and this looks sure to be more truly run.

Dual C&D winner who is generally reliable but she doesn't have a great strike-rate (4-36) and didn't really fire at Wolverhampton (fourth of six) last time; this is a drop back in grade but she's drawn out wide and others are more persuasive.
