Form & Verdict

Ideally suited by good or slower ground and is well treated on his old form, including a handicap win and a Listed second over C&D towards the end of 2021; has a very mixed record in last seven runs but he showed signs of a revival with his fourth at Redcar (cheekpieces reapplied) 19 days ago and has claims if he can build on that.

Now 4lb lower than when winning at Doncaster in April and 7lb lower than when third behind Bielsa in a big-field sprint at York's Dante meeting; heavy defeats at Ayr and York after an eight-week break but he's a C&D winner and it wouldn't be a bolt from the blue to see him bounce back.

Form & Verdict

Infrequent winner in recent years but he got back on the scoresheet when leading close home in a big field at Newbury (6f, soft) last Friday; back up 3lb in the weights but he remains well treated on his best form and could be a major force again.

Bernardo OReilly

J: Sean D Bowen

T: Richard Spencer

Veteran who benefited from the pace collapsing in the corresponding event last year, sweeping home to defy a 5lb higher mark; last month's return at Doncaster should have brought him on and he's likely to be arriving on the scene late; yard going well.

Form & Verdict

Won off 5lb higher at Hamilton (6f) for Kevin Ryan last season but he's been generally disappointing since and was down the field at Redcar on his recent stable debut; has some questions to answer and his last three wins have come on good to firm.

Form & Verdict

Raised his form to a new level when scoring with cheekpieces reapplied at Haydock (6f, good to soft/heavy) in his final two runs last autumn; up another 4lb but he still looks feasibly treated and was successful on his seasonal return last year; interesting contender.

Late headway into third in a useful 6f handicap at Doncaster on last week's return from four months off; whether he's well enough treated for a race of this nature is a moot point.

Form & Verdict

Seven-time turf winner on ground ranging from firm to soft; now only 1lb higher than when completing a double at Ripon (6f) last June but he's not hit the same level since and was well held after a slow start here on his return four weeks ago; others preferred.

Form & Verdict

Won a Redcar novice (5f, good to soft) last August and was good second in a Newmarket handicap (7f, good) next time but he was laboured over C&D in his final run last season (been gelded since); still relatively lightly raced but this looks tough back from 234 days off and others are preferred.

Scored off 2lb higher here on his seasonal return last year but that was over 7f and he was out of sorts in his final two runs last term; now goes back up in grade after 186 days off and others are more persuasive.

Useful on turf for Kevin Ryan in his younger days; last win was March 2022 but he's still unexposed on AW and was placed off this career-low mark at Southwell (6f, Tapeta) 11 days ago; that was a good effort in a Class 4 event and has possibilities if he can back that up.

Form & Verdict

Generally reliable type who won three times (5f-6f) in 2022 but he started this campaign with a quiet run at Redcar (6f, soft) and was well behind Magical Spirit in that race; has bit to prove again after that and he's ideally suited by fast ground.
