Al Mubhir

J: Cieren Fallon

T: William Haggas

Comfortable winner of this race on soft ground last year; mostly respectable efforts in defeat later in 2023; gelded ahead of reappearance; should go well with ground conditions to suit.

Form & Verdict

Last three wins at 7f; respectable fourth over same trip at Redcar on seasonal debut, confirming that he's suited by soft ground; something to prove back up in trip (his 1m record isn't fully convincing).

midfield, pushed along halfway, not clear run 2f out, soon switched right, steady headway from over 1f out, ran on well against near rail to lead inside final 110yds, won going away

Form & Verdict

Scored comfortably at Redcar (1m, soft) last week, building on his close third in the Spring Mile; in great form and should remain at the top of his game (consistent sort); back on career-high mark but receives weight all round; solid chance.

9st 5lb

J: Christian Howarth

T: Alice Haynes

Has steadily found his form on AW this year, close second at Kempton (1m) most recently; fully exposed but he finished third (off only 2lb lower) in this race 12 months ago and could go well again.

Form & Verdict

Seen only twice last year, both times on AW in the autumn, and his form dipped the second time; useful on his day and returns to turf off a competitive mark; thereabouts if running to his best.

J: Ryan Moore

T: Sir Michael Stoute

Beaten on last ten starts going back to 2021, at single-figure odds on eight of them; however, he ran well on his final three starts last season and returns to action having been gelded; can go well fresh; not ruled out.

J: Ryan Moore

T: Sir Michael Stoute

Has not seen much action in the last two years but he's well treated on his old form and was a good fourth at 40-1 in the Royal Hunt Cup here (good) last time; on same mark back from a short break and he's an interesting contender with Ryan Moore booked.

Form & Verdict

C&D winner off this mark in 2020 and landed the Shergar Cup Mile at Ascot in 2021; however, badly lost his form and developed a habit of starting slowly last season; needs to stage a big turnaround.

Campaigned mostly on AW since late 2021, best finishing position this year when second at Southwell (1m) on penultimate start; effective on turf in the past but hasn't won in this sphere since 2019.

Only one turf win since 2021 but has slipped a fair way in the weights and shaped as though coming to hand under Ben Sanderson (on again) over C&D last time; interesting.

7 yo Gelding

OR: 103

Form & Verdict

Not far behind Al Mubhir in the Lincoln; evidently suited by the removal of usual headgear at Newmarket (1m, good to soft) last week, recording his first success since joining this yard; acts on heavy; enters calculations despite going back up 6lb.

J: Daniel Tudhope

T: David O’Meara

Won here in April 2023 (good to soft) and third in the C&D Cambridgeshire (good to firm; 2lb lower today) in September; he's been a notch of two below that level this year, however, and although not beaten far, he managed only eighth of 17 here 18 days ago.
