Form & Verdict

Has gone well fresh before and likes it here, so no surprise he ran well over C&D a fortnight ago (winner One More Dream due to run in the 5.40); holds claims on that but was very hit-and-miss last season and hasn't won in almost two years.

Ended a long losing run at Chelmsford (7f, AW) last month, building on an encouraging reappearance; a 3lb rise still leaves him well treated on old form, which includes a 7f win here; 1-1 on soft ground; big shout.

Form & Verdict

Won five on the spin at Yarmouth last summer/autumn, going 24lb up the weights; started 66-1 for her C&D comeback a week ago, when springing a surprise in a race run to suit (Spirit Of Nguru behind), and could well be up to defying a penalty.

Best known for her heroics at Yarmouth but ran well on only previous visit to Brighton; out of form when last seen in the autumn but won when fresh at this time last year and resumes on a good mark.

Currently 2-2 over C&D after two narrow wins in the winter, latterly off a 1lb lower mark (G'Daay and Barging Thru behind); not as good since, though, including back in the visor when last seen six weeks ago.

Three-time Dundalk winner who's weighted to his best but ran better than his final position back from a break last time (drawn wide over 1m and pulled hard in a race not run to suit); is one to consider back down in trip.

Reeled off a 7f hat-trick at Dundalk for Gordon Elliott last winter; slow start for new yard but he ran out the easy winner of a 7f claimer at Wolverhampton in January; no certainty to back that up in a much stronger race.

Two solid efforts over C&D this spring, latterly in a first-time visor, and is a straightforward sort who's likely to give his running again; enters the equation.

Yet to win on turf (0-7), with all three wins coming on the AW (5f-7f; Chelmsford and Wolverhampton); has worn blinkers for his last three starts, including when simply doing too much too soon at Ayr (7f, good; sixth of eight) last time; this sharp track may suit and he is well drawn to attack.

Record over C&D since handicapping reads 123115; on the negative side, all his wins came after a recent outing (returns from four months off tonight; can race freely) and he's 3lb above his highest successful mark.
