Form & Verdict

Ended last season on a low note and wasn't seen to best effect when reappearing on soft ground three weeks ago; back on a sound surface here but this 8yo might need another run or two before hitting top gear.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 5yo who doubled his AW tally when keeping on well to lead close home at Newcastle (5f) in late March; needs to prove he's fully effective over 6f and on turf but may still have potential.

Well beaten in two runs here this year and still 2lb higher than for his Ayr win last July; likely to come good again at some point but perhaps not here.

Form & Verdict

Placed twice over 6f at Newcastle (AW) for Jessica Macey this year and kept on for respectable sixth over that C&D on last month's stable debut; doesn't often run on turf but could have a say in this.

Dual turf winner in 2023, latterly off 4lb higher over C&D (good); began this year with three fairly good AW runs but will have something to prove if the ground remains slower than good.

Form & Verdict

Enjoyed sustained revival after rejoining Jim Goldie last summer, winning three times (once over C&D); soundly beaten on both 5f starts this season but is sure to appreciate today's significant ease in grade; a player.

Has returned from a short break in good form, bettering last December's Southwell win (5f, Tapeta) when 1l second at Wolverhampton (5f, Tapeta) this month; another good effort when third here (6f) on Friday; still a bit to prove over this far but should be involved.

Form & Verdict

Quite well handicapped on last summer's placed form at around 1m for Gemma Tutty but started off for Mike Smith with two underwheming AW runs in November (1m/7f) and today's drop back to 6f is not an obvious move.

Without a win since June 2021 and generally very disappointing since switching to current stable in October but some positives can be drawn from his recent run at Ayr and he's very well suited by this C&D; no forlorn hope in refitted cheekpieces.
