Form & Verdict

On the up on Tapeta last year; took form to the next level when beating a few of these over C&D last month, keeping on strongly close home; 2lb rise not insurmountable and he could still have more to offer.

Two wins on turf and he's taken well to AW, winning a 14-runner C&D handicap in October and giving Pockley a fright here two weeks ago; work to do to reverse the placings here though.

Front-runner with a good record on AW (including C&D); did best of the prominent racers when fourth behind Badri here last month and he's capable of a big run, for all an easy lead seems unlikely in this field.

Useful on his day when trained by Richard Hughes, winning four times (twice on Tapeta); drew a blank in 2022 before changing hands for 36,000gns in October; new yard likely to win races with him but perhaps not this one.

Five of his six wins have come on the AW, one of them here; held up off a strong pace when close up here 16 days ago but he can race prominently; closely matched with Moon Flight and Dark Kestrel on that form; fighting chance.

Form & Verdict

Developing into a useful sprinter on AW and he followed his third behind Badri and Venturous with a narrow defeat of Dandy Dinmont here two weeks ago; travelled through that race like one who could hold his own in better company and the Topspeed figure was strong; should be in the thick of the action once again.

Veteran with 13 wins to his name, five of them at this track; ran very well behind Badri over C&D last month, travelling best but having to switch left to make his challenge and then carried further across the track in the closing stages; major player off the same mark.

Better than ever last year, winning a 22-runner sprint at the Ebor meeting before a close sixth in the Ayr Gold Cup; 0-3 on AW but he has shown promise in each of those Tapeta runs; has gone well fresh in the past but he has an inexperienced apprentice booked tonight.

Three wins (one here over 6f) since returning to Jim Goldie's care last summer; suspicion he still lurks on a dangerous mark but whether he's ready to roll after five months off remains to be seen (has gone well fresh in the past at least).

Has returned from a short break in good form, bettering last December's Southwell win (5f, Tapeta) when 1l second at Wolverhampton (5f, Tapeta) this month; another good effort when third here (6f) on Friday; still a bit to prove over this far but should be involved.
