Form & Verdict

Largely consistent record (328122) since upped to 1m6f/2m, the win gained at Thirsk (good) last August; neck second at Ripon (soft) on seasonal debut most recently; due to go up 1lb in future; each-way claims.

Form & Verdict

Prominent racer who was better than ever when winning a 2m Class 2 handicap at Kempton in December; neither run since has been quite at that level but he returns to turf off a lower mark and could get the run of things; well below par in two runs on slower than good.

A fairly useful 2m winner last summer but he's yet to fire in two runs this year, visored when coming in last of 12 at Lingfield (2m) 13 days ago; has a bit to prove.

Form & Verdict

C&D winner who is well suited by slow ground; should come on for his recent return to action at Pontefract (2m2f, soft) and he has dropped to a tempting mark; one to consider.

Well beaten in this race in 2021 and 2022 and even further adrift in the Trial three weeks ago on his only other race at Newmarket; good ground for all three of those was probably not ideal and he'd be well handicapped if this proved one of his best days, but others look more solid.

Low-key return to action over hurdles last month; should be well handicapped on even last season's Flat best and conditions won't be an issue; not discounted.

Arrives on a lengthy losing run but he's knocking on the door, runner-up twice here (to Emiyn first occasion) before chasing home Yorkindness at Musselburgh (2m, good to soft); ought to be thereabouts again from an unchanged mark.

Form & Verdict

Promise at up to 1m2f when trained by Ger Lyons; fair winning hurdler for John McConnell; not at his best over 1m2f on stable debut 12 days ago but dropped 5lb for his troubles; stamina for 2m on the Flat has to be taken on trust.

Form & Verdict

He has not looked back since a wind operation and a move to this stable, winning five of his nine starts for David O'Meara (1m2f-1m4f but just about stays this trip); good third in a conditions event on Good Friday; still capable of better but the bulk of his turf racing has been done on good or faster ground.

Five-time AW winner who was a close third off a reduced mark over C&D last month but he failed to back that up at Southwell (1m4f) last time; now takes a big step back up in trip but he's generally struggled in his last nine starts and comes with risks attached; hood back on.

Gradually lost his way after winning at Newcastle (1m4f, Tapeta) last March, but having dropped 4lb lower than when last successful he was only beaten two necks into third of nine at Lingfield (2m, Polytrack) this month; races off the same mark, but more will be needed back down in trip.
