Form & Verdict

Began last season in good form, winning three times (twice over C&D); had gone off the boil by the autumn and ought to have coped better with the soft ground when down the field on last month's reappearance but is back on a good mark now.

Form & Verdict

Never really got involved after slow start at Musselburgh last month but returned to the Flat with fairly respectable third in selling handicap at Wolverhampton (7f, AW) in March and is too well handicapped to rule out.

Bit of support ahead of his comeback here last month and the return to blinkers, worn for last autumn's Musselburgh win (likes it there), could help; doesn't arrive in any form though.

Form & Verdict

Quite useful in her prime but her last win was in 2021, and she's had several chances off basement marks on the AW this year; managed a 40-1 third on one occasion (1m) but others appeal more.

Took a division of this race from 6lb higher in 2021 and 7lb lower than when successful at Newcastle (6f, AW) later that year, but she has gone 27 starts without a win since then; hard to fancy.

Form & Verdict

Returned from break with two down-the-field AW runs in February but last month's fourth at Southwell (7f, AW) was much better, and she's now 5lb lower than when dominating from the front for comfortable C&D (good) success last summer.

Her form has gone the wrong way this year and she's been well beaten at Musselburgh the last twice; however, she doesn't have a good record there whereas she's run several good races here, including when fourth of six over C&D as recently as May; could play a major role now back here.
