Form & Verdict

He made a winning stable debut when beating 15 rivals in a 1m Class 5 handicap at Pontefract last week (good to soft), wandering about in the straight but finding plenty; should make a bold bid despite the 5lb penalty.

J: Cam Hardie

T: Harriet Bethell

Won four times last season, including this race; struggled at Pontefract on his return last month but he's bounced back with a win and close second there (both at 1m on soft) in last two runs; only 1lb higher than last time and he's a big player back at this track; all wins have been on good or slower but he handles most ground.

Form & Verdict

Won four times in 2021, three of them here over the extended 7f; drew a blank last season but he's tumbled down the weights and his return to action at Ripon 11 days ago wasn't without hope; considered.

Prolific winner for this yard but he didn't get home on a rare 1m run at Southwell last month (aggressive ride) and his stamina looks a potential issue under these conditions.

Had a purple patch on the AW around the turn of the year, winning three times over 1m; back to his last winning mark and he wasn't beaten far at Newcastle in March; best turf form has come on good or quicker ground.

Triple AW winner last winter (including one over C&D) but form has an uneven look since; below best over C&D last time but usual cheekpieces now replaced by first-time visor.

Form & Verdict

Promising debut at Thirsk last April and ran out the comfortable winner of a Hamilton maiden one year ago (extended 1m, good to soft); found life tougher in handicaps afterwards but he starts this season off a reduced mark and cheekpieces are now added; interesting dropped in class.

Form & Verdict

C&D winner; ended 2022 quietly but he's on a dangerous mark and his record at this track reads well; that said, his worst run here came in the corresponding race 12 months ago and he could do with the ground drying out.

11lb lower than when winning at Ripon in July last year (1m, good), but hasn't been in top form this year; could revive with regular cheekpieces being replaced by blinkers (second time he's worn them, no improvement on previous occasion three years ago).
