Enjoyed a good winter on AW, winning three times; signs the handicapper has caught up back on turf the last twice and others are more appealing in this field.

5 yo Colt

OR: 102

Form & Verdict

Won his maiden on turf but his major improvement has come on AW, notably handicap wins at Southwell last winter and at Kempton last month (after eight months off); the latest win was 6f but he's not short of speed and he's still feasibly handicapped if he can prove as effective on slow turf.

Form & Verdict

Impressed when winning at Ascot (5f, good to soft) last September; couldn't match that form in three subsequent runs in 2022 but he ended the year with a creditable third on bad ground at Doncaster in October; type to win more races but conceding race fitness to most of his rivals.

Form & Verdict

Ready winner from the front at Pontefract 11 days ago (5f, good to soft) and defied a penalty back there on Wednesday in similarly comfortable fashion; ahead of the handicapper but he's up from Class 5 to Class 2 and it could be enough to scupper his hat-trick bid.

7 yo Gelding

OR: 96

Form & Verdict

Has tended to need his first run of the year so encouraging that he ran well for third at Musselburgh four weeks ago (5f, good to soft); on a dangerous mark and he's one to consider.

Formerly smart including winning a Group 3 at Sandown in July 2021, but 0-11 since and tailed off in the Stewards' Cup when last seen; not hard to look elsewhere.

8st 7lb

J: David Egan

T: Ed Walker

On a reduced mark but that is a result of a two-year losing spell; it's been a while since he ran over 6f and although he'll handle the ground, he has too much to prove for comfort.

Form & Verdict

He's unproven on slow ground but has run really well on his first start of the season in each of his two campaigns (second in this race 12 months ago, front two clear); taken out of a Pontefract event last month on account of soft ground.

Impressed over 6f on his second run for this yard at Wolverhampton in March; not matched it twice since (7f on first occasion and blew the start latest) but he handles slow ground and has the ability if on a going day.

9st 6lb

J: Marco Ghiani

T: Robert Cowell

Has lots of ability and often the victim of races not being run to suit when with former yard; good second at Yarmouth on return to Robert Cowell's yard 19 days ago (5f, good to firm); good mark but often slowly away and this isn't a track at which to be conceding cheap lengths early.
