Form & Verdict

Improved when sent up in trip on AW and he transferred that back to turf when second of nine over C&D (good to soft) three weeks ago; was no match for the winner but he deserves credit for finishing best of the rest in that good race and he holds solid claims today off the same mark.

Form & Verdict

Three wins last year from his five nursery starts, posting narrow victories in small fields on final two occasions (7f, good/good to soft); in good hands to continue to progress and he could be a key player on comeback.

Form & Verdict

Consistent on turf last season and, having been gelded, he improved to win on his AW and seasonal debut at Wolverhampton (7f) three weeks ago; there's every chance 1m will be within range and, having done it nicely last time, he's respected up 5lb.

Solid 2yo campaign over 6f/7f and he could improve for his recent reappearance fourth over 6f at Pontefract; kept on well to win 7f nursery at Glorious Goodwood last July and this first crack at 1m is well worth a go.

Disappointed on latest outing six weeks ago and now 0-12 but lost out only by a neck off today's mark at Nottingham (8.3f, heavy; also suited by good) two starts ago and has obvious claims if back at that level here; blinkered for last three runs; cheekpieces refitted today.

0-11 and needs to prove he can get the job done but he's returned to form in these blinkers the last twice, finishing second at Doncaster (1m, good) and Nottingham (1m, heavy); can give another good account.

Consistent in handicaps last autumn, winning at Catterick (7f, good to soft), and he's run well to be placed on both starts this spring (1m, soft); also showed promise on good ground last year; might not be far away.

Prominent-racer who won twice last summer (7f, good to firm/good); proved his stamina for 1m when third at the York Ebor meeting; should be sharper for a reappearance run at Newmarket last month but the forecast rain is a potential issue as he's shown his form on good/good to firm (below par only start on good to soft); also drawn widest.

Prominent-racer who won twice last summer (7f, good to firm/good); close third over 1m at York last August and campaign concluded with good second here (7f); he could continue to progress this season and can make a bold bid if fully tuned up for this reappearance outing.

Won Hamilton maiden (1m, soft; versatile ground-wise) last August on his fourth start and just got up in a Wolverhampton handicap (8.6f, AW) in November when last seen; gelded since; his attractive pedigree provides optimism that he could still have more to offer and he's one to consider.

Below par at Newcastle last November when last seen (had won there in July); however, two starts ago he was second of five behind a fast-improving rival in a handicap at Goodwood (7f, good to soft), and he also ran well on soft ground on his debut; not ruled out if back on song.
