Progressive on turf last season (wins on good to firm and good to soft) and he reappeared with a narrow defeat of Arecibo at Lingfield (5f, AW) recently; this 4yo front-runner could still have more to offer; player.

Kicked off this season with two all-the-way handicap wins and placed in Group 3 (5f, soft) and Group 2 (5f, good to firm) races next twice; another good run when close Listed fourth at Deauville (5f, very soft) recently; could show up well for a long way but likely to find a few too good.

Beaten on last 14 starts going back to May 2021 but went very close behind Live In The Dream at Lingfield (5f, AW) recently on his second start of the year; equally effective on turf (versatile ground-wise); solid claims.

Has dropped down the weights and he's 7lb lower than when winning at Chester last June; however, this 9yo prominent-racer struggled to get competitive subsequently and a return to form is needed on this reappearance.

Form & Verdict

Took advantage of a reduced mark on reappearance at Doncaster (5f, soft) nine days ago, doing it readily; she's 8lb higher here under a penalty and from out of the handicap, but she's still 2lb lower than when a good third in this last year (good to soft) and could play a leading role.

5f on soft ground looks ideal for her and last season's two wins both came off higher marks than today's; last month's return at Southwell (6f) was encouraging and she's more appealing than many.

Inconsistent last season and this 9yo may improve for today's reappearance run; however, this prominent-racer is well handicapped on last year's best efforts and was second in this two years ago; not ruled out.

His last three wins have come over this trip at Ripon; well handicapped on last season's best but he underperformed at Ripon, albeit over 5f, when last seen three weeks ago; down in class today and one to consider; can blow it at the start.

Form & Verdict

6f may be his best trip but this ex-Ballydoyle 4yo has been in good form since joining this yard and was a good second at Newcastle (6f, AW) latest; both Irish wins came on slow turf and he could be thereabouts.

Coolmore cast-off who gained his first win for this yard when seeing off three rivals in a Windsor handicap in May (5f, good to firm); creditable effort in the Gosforth Park Cup seven weeks ago; conditions shouldn't be an issue but he's likely vulnerable to something lower down the weights.

Disappointing at Doncaster 12 days ago but he's capable of bouncing back from a poor run, which is what happened when he won at Windsor (5f) last month; close second over 6f here in February and not discounted.

Won twice last year (5f/6f, good to soft/good to firm) and he may have needed his recent reappearance at Doncaster, when soft ground may not have suited; however, he was beaten a long way and it's hard to be confident.

Form & Verdict

He's unproven on slow ground but has run really well on his first start of the season in each of his two campaigns (clear with the highly progressive Raasel last April on his last reappearance); good second at Beverley (5f, good) when last seen and he's very much a contender if at his best.
