Form & Verdict

Kept to shorter trips for the majority of his career but he's won over 1m4f here the last twice and has finished powerfully each time, suggesting today's distance may well be within range; strong claims.

Five-time course winner, three of them over tonight's trip, latterly off 2lb lower last month; hit traffic in a messy affair at Wolverhampton latest and, while a bigger field would have been ideal (is usually dropped in and can pull), he's shortlisted.

Form & Verdict

Has a patchy profile and this is her first run since being pulled up over hurdles last May; however, her two wins (Flat/hurdles) have come after breaks of 66 and 175 days, so she goes well fresh; not ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 4yo who was stepped up to 1m2f at Chelmsford (1m2f, Polytrack) a fortnight ago in first-time cheekpieces (retained) and kept on well into third; there's every chance he'll stay further than 1m2f but this a big jump up in distance and his pedigree isn't about stamina.

She looked to be a progressive mare to follow when winning at Southwell (2m, Tapeta) in January; not written off on the back of just one poor run but it's hard to be confident in her chance after that disappointing performance at Southwell (2m) three weeks ago.
