Form & Verdict

Off the mark at ninth attempt when landing a C&D classified event (first-time visor) last Thursday; knuckled down well to beat a clear second in that race and his confidence should be boosted after that success; respected.

J: Billy Loughnane

T: Gary Moore

Not looked back since the visor went on, winning his first five including three here (1m2f-1m4f); only just missed out in a 1m4f handicap here 19 days ago and a 3lb rise shouldn't be too damaging.

J: Alec Voikhansky

T: Gary Moore

Won first five starts after visor fitted in February, including twice over C&D; has proved that he can be effective outside of 0-50 classified company and may have had excuses when only third of seven (sent off at 1-2) last week but this looks a tough race in which to bounce back.

All six wins have been over 1m on AW and latest was 12 months ago; ran well when second behind Red Evelyn here (1m) last week but this step back up in trip is a concern and others are more persuasive.

Form & Verdict

Several good efforts since the autumn, including a 1m handicap win here in November and and a front-running third in a C&D classified event last month; was disappointing back at this track two weeks ago but that was under more patient tactics and he has claims if he can bounce back.

Form & Verdict

Ended a long losing run when justifying support with her front-running success here (1m classified; second-time blinkers) last Thursday; has claims if she can back that up under a penalty but she's had only previous run at this trip and that resulted in a fading sixth over C&D in December.
