Form & Verdict

Modest maiden who wore blinkers here (7f) the last twice, running well on first occasion; chance of first success largely depends on how well he responds to headgear switch (now goes in hood).

Form & Verdict

Has record of 1-27 and sole win was at Gowran Park (1m, good to firm) last August but he ran his best race for a while when fifth in a Dundalk handicap (1m, Polytrack) last month; has possibilities if he can back that up and he's not ruled out.

Ex-Irish; strike-rate of 1-38 is offputting (0-19 on the AW) but he was a close fourth at Newcastle last time (7f); could run into a place.

Form & Verdict

12-race maiden but he hit a personal best with his 3l fifth in a classified event at Newcastle (1m, Tapeta) 12 days ago and that can be marked up because he had some traffic issues in the closing stages; could be dangerous if he gets the breaks this time and he's in the mix.

15-race maiden and only two AW results (in classifieds on first two starts this year) give him any chance on form; second favourite last time but others look much more solid.

Has generally struggled in the last 15 months and he was tailed off in a classified event at Newcastle (1m2f) ten days ago; that took his record to 1-36 and he makes no appeal back at this trip.

Form & Verdict

Still a maiden after 15 starts but she's had some close calls including when third in a classified event at Chelmsford (7f) on her penultimate run; that form puts her in the picture but she wasn't at the same level over C&D last time and needs to step up again after that.

Placed on two of four AW starts this year, more recently when close second at Wolverhampton (8.6f) in March, and is also suited by this C&D; looks fully exposed off her basement mark but probably won't be far away.
