Form & Verdict

Prominent racer; won a C&D handicap off this mark in January; things haven't gone so smoothly since then and he's unlikely to get an easy lead in this field.

J: Kieran Shoemark

Front-runner who has gained three of his four wins over C&D, the latest an easy 4l success in April; this will be tougher from a 6lb higher mark especially with other established trailblazers in the field.

J: Taylor Fisher

T: Archie Watson

Four-time AW winner who is 0-9 on turf but he made a bold bid when a clear second at Pontefract (1m, good to firm) 19 days ago; up 3lb but he ran into an unexposed improver last time and still looks on a workable mark; in the mix.

Form & Verdict

Smart in his pomp and still capable of useful form in 2022; may have needed his recent return to action here (7f) and dropped another 2lb; 0-3 over 1m but this is much less competitive than he is used to and he can't be discounted.

Five-time Group winner under Gerald Mosse in 2018/2019; ran respectably (fifth of 17) over C&D when last seen on turf; fairly interesting off a reduced mark with Mosse back on board for first time since 2020.

Four-time Group 2 winner in 2018/2019; missed the 2021 campaign and 0-6 for new yard last term but ran respectably in valuable 7f handicap at Ascot on final outing; 2-2 over this C&D (both wins in 2016) and looks interesting off a reduced mark on belated return to this track.

4 yo Colt

OR: 87

Form & Verdict

Still has relatively low mileage and his latest run can be ignored as he had tack issues; dropped 2lb since; could bounce back with a big run.

J: Hector Crouch

T: Stuart Williams

The only C&D winner in the field, having taken the race apart here in January; ran well when third at Kempton (1m, Polytrack) next time but below form there last month; the return here may help, but still 6lb above his last winning mark and drawn wider than ideal; stable also runs Ribal.

Form & Verdict

Narrowly beaten over C&D in February; ran another solid race here when fourth in a good C&D handicap nine days ago; needs a bit more to defy this mark but it's certainly not out of the question.

Group 2-placed as a 2yo; successful in a 1m handicap at Hamilton last summer off 2lb lower; ended 2022 quietly but he's been gelded over the winter and a revival wouldn't be a huge surprise.

Generally disappointing since bagging a good prize here (8.5f, good to firm) on Oaks day in June but is 1lb below that mark now and took good step back in right direction when fourth at Ayr (1m2f, good to soft) ten days ago; can't be ruled out.
