Form & Verdict

0-10, but not without ability as when twice making the frame in handicaps here (6f) in December; shaped as though worth stepping back up in trip when sixth of ten in first-time cheekpieces (retained) at Lingfield (6f, Polytrack) last time and much respected down in class.

Four wins here and although 4lb higher than last success in October, that form has been franked by runner-up and fourth; up 4lb but goes without usual cheekpieces for reappearance run.

Three course wins this year, beating Monaadhil into second twice in a week in August (7f and 1m); below par at Southwell four weeks ago but the return to this track could see him resume his progress.

Veteran who was having only his second start beyond 6f on his 128th outing when third of 13 in a similar event at Kempton (7f, Polytrack) last time; solid chance of gaining the 17th win of his career if building on that.

Made an immediate impact on her first start for Mick Appleby when off the mark at the 14th attempt in a 0-55 handicap at Wolverhampton (7f, Tapeta) six days ago; only had a short head to spare and has a 5lb penalty to carry, but still a major player dropped to this level for the first time.

Dual C&D winner, the latter coming in a classified event in February, after which he successfully followed up at Wolverhampton (9.5f, Tapeta) in similar company; produced another respectable effort behind Chourmo at Brighton (1m2f, good) latest and if he can do the same again he's a player.
