Form & Verdict

Somewhat up and down but a 4-14 record on turf is hard to knock, the latest win coming on his reappearance at Windsor (6f, soft) 12 days ago; has a C&D success to his name too and he's not dismissed lightly, but he'll need a career best to follow up off a 6lb higher mark.

Ended last season out of sorts but looks poised to revive; 3-3 under Saffie Osborne, namely a soft-ground hat-trick that initiated with a success in this race last year; respected.

Infrequent winner these days and three runs this season (6f-1m) have been underwhelming; probably best watched until showing a bit more.

J: Cam Hardie

T: Tony Coyle & Kaine Wood

Never really got involved after slow start on last month's seasonal debut, but his subsequent fourth at Leicester (7f, soft) was a decent effort and he's now 4lb lower than when scoring over C&D on soft ground last May.

Form & Verdict

Not the force of old but his current mark reflects that and he found only Society Lion too good at Thirsk (6f, soft) last week, doing his best work late on; 2lb better off with his old foe and likely to be involved again.

Previously with Mark Usher and she had a productive 2022, winning three times (5f/6f) between July and September; ground softer than good is ideal and she could have a say if ready to roll after seven months off.

Form & Verdict

Comes from a family his connections know well and has shaped encouragingly in four runs to date, finishing second for the third time in a small field at Wolverhampton (6f) two weeks ago; seems just as good on turf (beaten a neck on heavy ground last autumn) and has untapped potential as he moves in to handicaps; might be the answer.

Form & Verdict

4-16 strike-rate on turf is perfectly creditable and she was at least as good as ever last season, winning over this trip at Newbury; handles soft ground and she's unbeaten in two runs for Oisin Murphy; big player if ready to do herself justice after nine months off.

Low-key return to action at Wolverhampton two weeks ago but that was all the case last spring before winning on her second run of the campaign; on a good mark but the stable may have stronger claims with Airshow.

A good test at 6f suits him well, and he edged out Cold Stare at Thirsk (soft) last week, always close up; nudged up 3lb but still well treated on old form and should give another good account of himself.

Both turf wins have come in 6f handicaps on soft/good to soft, but she ended 2022 with two below-par efforts and folded tamely at Doncaster on her reappearance; questions to answer at present.

Won three times over 6f last year and she's dropped below her last winning mark; however, this season is turning into a struggle and after bombing out in a visor (swiftly removed) two runs back she tried a mile last time; much to prove.
