Form & Verdict

Useful on the AW as he showed when winning a Listed contest at Wolverhampton (7f, Tapeta) two years ago and a conditions event there (6f) in December; should find this trip more suitable than when last of six in another Listed race at Lingfield (1m, Polytrack) last month (Lord Of The Lodge third), but he does look on a stiff mark back in a handicap.

J: Ryan Moore

T: Richard Hannon

Unlucky in running at Lingfield in March (behind Chipstead) and after a flop at Wolverhampton he returned to form with a close second at Kempton 38 days ago; has a lower mark on turf and looks well treated on form such as his Wokingham fourth; Ryan Moore booked; not ruled out.

Useful on his day, such as when winning off this mark at Chelmsford (7f) last March; inconsistent since and latest effort doesn't augur well; however, has a fighting chance granted a rebound.

Form & Verdict

Admirable front-runner who is just 2lb higher than when making all at Southwell (7f, Tapeta) in January and returns to his optimum trip after a couple of goes over 1m at Lingfield; dangerous if allowed his own way but that's far from certain.

Form & Verdict

9lb higher than when winning at Yarmouth (7f, good to firm) last Augus, but is officially rated higher on the AW and has dropped 2lb lower than when successful over this C&D in June; not seen in four month, but is proven fresh so not easily dismissed.

Form & Verdict

Both wins for Richard Hannon came from the front, including over C&D in November 2021; has faced stiff tasks in two of her three starts since debuting for this yard following an absence in January; this more realistic back in a handicap but she will do well to dominate this field.
