Form & Verdict

Has had breathing issues but has displayed a fair level of ability, catching the eye in a major way on a couple of occasions; makes handicap debut at a very realistic level and he's a key player now upped to 7f.

J: Daniel Muscutt

Two starts over C&D have yielded a win and a second behind a highly progressive sort; well beaten on last month's Southwell return (7f, Tapeta), but can't be dismissed back under these conditions.

Not yet fully exposed after only nine runs and won over 7f on this surface at Newcastle a year ago; ran well in defeat behind much-improved rival over that C&D in October and has good claims if in similar form after break.

3 yo Colt

Form & Verdict

He has improved for the switch to handicaps and he comes here chasing a hat-trick after 7f wins at Wolverhampton and Southwell (made the running); 5lb rise for last time does ask a stiffer question but he's on the up and isn't discounted lightly.

Form & Verdict

Two wins from her eight starts, both over this C&D; her form dipped at Kempton last time but she was caught wide there and that form has been boosted a few times since in any case; should make a bold bid to maintain her unbeaten course record but she's now 3lb higher in the weights.

J: Joshua Bryan

Handy sort who won twice over C&D early last year and added another success at Wolverhampton (7f, Tapeta; first-time cheekpieces) in September; third of eight behind a thriving rival at Southwell (7f, Tapeta; first-time blinkers) 13 days ago showed that she remains in form and a player from 1lb lower.

T: Archie Watson

The addition of cheekpieces saw her gain a third career success when digging deep at Wolverhampton (7f) in September; four of her five subsequent runs have been solid enough but she remains 3lb above that successful mark; first-time blinkers (replacing cheekpieces) need to give her something extra.

On the up this year, winning 1m handicaps here either side of a second to a rapid improver; has the ability to deal with a 3lb rise and the way he goes through his races offers hope that 7f will prove even more suitable; shortlisted.
