Form & Verdict

Not quite as good as he once was but won over C&D last summer and lost out only by a neck to a next-time-out winner off today's mark on Tapeta in March; likely contender.

Form & Verdict

Enjoyed very productive season for Jim Goldie last year, winning five times (once over C&D); had gone off the boil by the autumn, though, and finished last on last month's reappearance run; needs that outing to have brought him on.

9st 1lb

T: Jim Goldie

Dual winner over 1m/1m1f on good/heavy last season, including here (has four course wins to his credit); yet to hit top form this term, but conditions suit and one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Doubled his tally with AW win at Newcastle in February; unable to challenge Flylikeaneagle but still posted a good effort when keeping-on third at Musselburgh (1m, good to soft) last month; no surprise if he features.

Form & Verdict

Won four times (once over C&D) last year; proved rather disappointing during subsequent four-race spell over hurdles but returned to the Flat with clearcut success at Musselburgh (1m, good to soft) last month and today's faster ground won't be a problem; good chance.

J: Oisin Orr

Won well off a similar mark over C&D (good to soft) last April; inconsistent since but the return to this scenario and drop back to 0-70 level may have positive effect; respected.

Near miss over C&D in December off 1lb higher; well beaten twice since, although he had an excuse last time having gone off too fast in a 1m2f amateur event here 11 days ago; can do better today.

J: Miss Margot Scudamore

None too consistent and followed close second over 7f here in December with a disappointing effort (pulled hard) over 1m; others appeal more.

Form & Verdict

Made all to open account at Hamilton (8.3f, good) last May and might have bettered that performance when third over same C&D in September; not seen since lesser effort on AW in October but had wind surgery soon afterwards and could be dangerous if able to dominate here; tongue-tie added.

Absent since AW defeat in October; successful at Ayr, albeit in Class 6, on most recent turf attempt (7f, soft) and on reappearance last term (1m, good to firm); not dismissed.
