Form & Verdict

Disappointing on final two runs last season but took step back in right direction when fifth at Newcastle (1m, AW) on last month's reappearance and he's now 2lb lower than when winning at Redcar (1m2f, good to soft) last September; not ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Has done well on AW for new yard this year, winning three times; he's a five-time turf winner but was only fifth when back on grass at Redcar last week, on soft ground he should have handled; needs to bounce back.

In good form in the main on AW since wearing this headgear combination and he was a creditable fourth of 13 at Kempton (1m, AW) a fortnight ago; also effective on turf (albeit 0-10 on grass) and might not be far away.

Had a light and disappointing campaign last year, for two different yards, but he dropped down the weights and was an encouraging third on recent stable debut at Wolverhampton (7f, AW); may be able to build on that.

Well handicapped on his placed form last April-June and he may have needed his recent reappearance run at Redcar, but he wasn't quite producing his best on his final few starts last season and needs to raise his game.

Form & Verdict

This is her first run of the season and nearly all of her rivals have the benefit of a recent run; however, this C&D winner reappeared with a good third in this race last year following wind surgery, and she's had another wind operation prior to this spring's comeback; could produce a bold show.

Three-time C&D winner, including on soft; won a Newcastle handicap in November off 1lb higher; beaten 12l in the Spring Mile on last month's return to turf but he ran into some dead ends and was keeping on at the finish; this is weaker and he's one to consider with a good apprentice booked.

Good third in the 2021 Lincoln but no longer retains that level of ability; last two wins (turf/AW) came in Class 5, and recent efforts also don't suggest he's about to land a Spring Mile; opposed.

Form & Verdict

Returned to form and capitalised on a reduced mark when winning an apprentice handicap under Elle-May Croot at Ripon (1m, soft) last Thursday on his second start of the season, with Hortzadar runner-up; runs off the same mark today and he's also effective on good/good to firm ground; obvious claims.

Form & Verdict

Improved form last autumn with a win (7f, good to soft) and a close fourth (1m, good to soft); the ground was heavy on his recent reappearance at Leicester and he may have needed the run; not written off but a lot better could have been expected last time and a transformation is required here.
