Form & Verdict

Went very close in a Wolverhampton novice (5f, Tapeta) last spring but he's not gone on from that and has been well below form on Polytrack and Tapeta in his last two starts; now returns to a handicap but he needs to get back near his best.

T: David Simcock

Looked on the way back to form when second of 11 at Southwell in August but he followed it with a lesser run over C&D seven weeks ago (always on the back foot after a slow start); should get a good pace to aim at and headgear is now reached for; not dismissed.

1-18, having won at Chelmsford (5f, Polytrack) in February, when 3lb higher; inconsistent since then but, as he showed at Southwell last week, he is capable of being very competitive.

Form & Verdict

Front-runner who made it 3-6 on Tapeta when completing a double at Southwell (5f) last January but he was on the sidelines for a year after that and failed to beat a rival at Newcastle on his comeback last month; drops back in grade but he has something to prove and is untried on Polytrack.

9st 8lb

J: Frederick Larson

Well held in first-time blinkers (retained) at Southwell recently but he likes this track, is favourably treated now and the return to 6f shouldn't be an issue; is one of the better options.

Form & Verdict

Recorded his fifth AW win when scoring eased down at Lingfield (6f, off 3lb lower) in December; well held on Tapeta in last two runs but he still looks feasibly treated on his best form this winter and was runner-up on his last try at this trip in October; dangerous if he can rediscover his spark.

Some promising efforts off a falling mark for this yard since September but he was in rear at Southwell (6f) last time and is now 0-18 since his last win 14 months ago; eyeshields are removed and blinkers return on this drop back in trip.

He has dropped a long way in the weights since joining this yard and there have been signs he may be ready to capitalise; this race might prove a shade too competitive though; new headgear enlisted today.

Form & Verdict

Returned from an absence with a Southwell win (5f novice) in November and he finished runner-up in Tapeta handicaps (5f/6f) in his final two runs for Karl Burke; changed hands for 7,000gns recently; still looks on a workable mark and he's respected back in trip on his stable debut.
