Form & Verdict

Impressed in a big-field handicap at York in October and heavy ground probably not ideal when only sixth at Doncaster two weeks later; a career best will be needed to take this from a wide draw back from break.

First two wins over 6f but seen more regularly at 5f now; nearly a year since she won on turf, when impressing at York (good to soft) but her recent run in a fillies' handicap at York was better than it looks at first glance; running into form and can give a good account.

Respectable fifth in both runs since returning from a break; may well raise her game back at York, where she's 1-1 over C&D after a win last October; Listed scorer on AW two starts later; possibilities off a workable mark.

Won handicaps in 2022, over 6f (good) and 5f (good to soft) but her mark took a battering following a Listed AW win on reappearance and she faded back in a handicap at Ascot 12 days ago; might come on for that run after a break but others higher up the list.

Prolific winner, including twice over C&D, and he capitalised on his drop in the weights with an easy win in a good Wolverhampton handicap two weeks ago; not at his best in this race 12 months ago but he's still one to take seriously.

Has enjoyed a good winter, winning three times on Tapeta in December and January; not far behind Tone The Barone at Wolverhampton two weeks ago and 7lb better off today; strong chance on ratings and he will be dangerous if able to hold an early pitch from stall 1.

He hasn't found his best form on the AW this winter but he's now 1lb lower than when hugely impressive at Newcastle last summer (5f); best known for his exploits over 5f though and this trip, even around here, might leave him vulnerable for win purposes.

Only 1lb higher than for his impressive victory at Newcastle in August; not in quite such rude form this winter but there have been excuses (caught wide early at Lingfield last time); likely to make a bold bid and has won over C&D but possible he's better suited to a straight track.

Not as good as he was and all his best form has come on AW surfaces; placed at Kempton (6f) last month and gets in here off an 11lb lower turf mark; however, his record on ground slower than good is worrying.

Form & Verdict

The step up to Group 3 proved a bridge too far in September but he had made good progress earlier in 2022, producing a very smart effort to make all at Haydock in September; this is his first AW run around a bend but his record of 3-4 at Chester suggests it shouldn't be an issue; good draw, can go well fresh and there is a lot to like about his chance.

Talented on his day but he hasn't won as many races as he probably should have; last seen finishing second in Beverley Listed race in August; sold 40,000gns since; has the ability to feature and Jamie Spencer knows him but he will need luck in running from stall 2; first AW run since June 2019.

Having dropped a long way in the weights he rediscovered his form this winter, winning 5f handicaps at Lingfield (twice) and Wolverhampton; wouldn't judge him too harshly on either of his last two runs and he ran well in the Dash over C&D last summer off this mark; not discounted.

Made it 7-18 on AW when completing a course double over 1m last month but she couldn't hang in there in her hat-trick bid here last time; remains well treated on old form and this drop back in trip is no problem but she needs to step up again after that last run; cheekpieces reapplied.
