Form & Verdict

A six-time AW winner up to 7f, he has been generally consistent here over the winter season; coming back to 7f from 1m last time will help and should be closely involved.

Has been running consistently well for John McConnell and this yard here over the winter, winning a 6f claimer at the start of the month; found 5f too sharp last week but stays this trip and is a player.

A 22-race maiden, including 8 starts on the AW; just denied in a C&D handicap last month but didn't match that effort last week; however, is well-weighted in theory.

Good effort in second spot behind Rockbury Lad (gave 1lb) last week, but more went right than wrong for him on that occasion and once again came up a small bit short; often flatters to deceive but at the same time, sound each-way claims, albeit from a bad draw.

Long-standing maiden spurned another good chance on the beach last week; has gone close against good horses but basically flatters to deceive and is not one to trust, although placed several times here and chance of being in the first three again from gate one.

Fairyhouse maiden winner over 6f last summer and ran well in a Gowran handicap over this trip off 84; however, hasn't been near that level in six runs here over the winter; was 3rd in a 6f claimer last time, so could be involved.
