6 yo Gelding

Has only won two of his last 28 starts, but has been successful five times over C&D and again ran well to finish second of 12 back here on Tuesday; now 1lb lower and much respected with conditions not an issue.

J: Zak Wheatley

T: Antony Brittain

Eight-time course winner, mainly over 8.6f, who rarely goes this far these days; can pull hard, so will want to get some cover early from the outside stall, and a below-par effort last time will need forgiving too.

Has done most of his winning at about 1m, including twice during a consistent 2024; doesn't appear to be crying out for this return to 7f; not the percentage call.

Form & Verdict

Only made his debut in December and appears to be improving, running a handicap blot close at Chelmsford (7f, Polytrack) at the start of the month and going one better in first-time cheekpieces here (7f) seven days later; not guaranteed to appreciate the longer trip on pedigree, but still open to further progress and a major player on form.

Form & Verdict

Dual Southwell winner (7f, Tapeta) in March last year and was having his second start for this yard when successful at Yarmouth (1m, soft) a fortnight ago; just 2lb higher and comes into this in form, which can't be said about many of these.

Holds no secrets from the handicapper but ran on well for third when back on turf here (7f, good) ten days ago and will be suited by today's move back up in trip; more appealing than most of these.

In the frame in three of his six visits here, but is 0-16; makes his stable debut (same owners) after another eight-month absence and best watched unless the market suggests otherwise.

C&D winner but his last success was 19 months ago and he's been well held at Chepstow (1m/7f) in last two starts; cheekpieces are removed after one use and he needs to raise his game back on AW; one of three runnners for the yard.

Both wins have come over C&D, but he is most inconsistent and reportedly stopped quickly when tailed off here on Tuesday (Inexplicable second); hard to recommend after that.

7f course winner who has also scored over 1m; claims on some of his Irish form as recent as last December; changed hands prior to latest run, when he came in for a bit of support but was never a factor and finished last at Wolverhampton (8.5f, Tapeta); bit to prove.
