Form & Verdict

Never a threat but certainly offered enough to think he could be very competitive in a seller such as this when sixth of 13 in 1m Kempton maiden on debut 14 days ago; entitled to improve; gets the vote.

Gained only win from 13 starts in a Tapeta seller but ran quite well when third (albeit no threat to clear winner) at Bath (11.6f, good) 11 days ago; continues to edge down the weights; each-way claims at least.

Form & Verdict

Has had 16 cracks at it without joy but he was second in a C&D handicap last month; below par at Kempton ten days ago but he is largely consistent; should get involved.

Man Made Of Smoke

9st 3lb

J: Darragh Keenan

T: David Evans

His win came off 2lb higher here (9.4f) in May but he's not matched that since and has been well below form in his last two runs (1m2f); record now stands at 1-26 and has plenty to prove again with regular headgear removed.

Form & Verdict

Barely modest form so far, failing to improve for a switch to handicaps when 5l fourth of six at Newcastle (1m) three weeks ago; still early days but some improvement will be needed.

0-12 and trail has gone cold again since June's Beverley half-length third (1m2f, good to firm), slower ground not necessarily at fault (fair fifth on soft in April); 1lb out of the handicap.

Form & Verdict

Now 0-9 but has a few pieces of form which give her a shout, including latest 7f course handicap fourth; the way she stuck on after getting outpaced on that occasion suggests this longer trip is worth a go.

Form & Verdict

Made her breakthrough (fifth attempt) with cheekpieces added in 1m Newcastle handicap last month; below that level at the same venue twice since but the fact she's a winner counts for something in this line-up.
