Form & Verdict

Gelded in January and he hasn't looked back since, winning a Nottingham maiden last month (5f, good to soft) and following up in a handicap there two weeks ago (soft); 4lb higher in his hat-trick bid but shouldn't be discounted.

Form & Verdict

Sprung a 28-1 surprise in a Nottingham maiden last September, always close to the pace (5f, good to firm); struggled in a Listed event on heavy ground one month later; should be capable of better and his yard are in good form; one to consider.

Debut winner who was only short-headed on his handicap debut at Goodwood (5f, heavy) and his Sandown run after a lengthy break was too bad to be true; could bounce back.

Less exposed than most of these and was having only his third outing when short-headed in six-runner handicap at Goodwood (5f, heavy; won debut on good to firm) in May; edged up 3lb but open to further improvement and must be considered.

Form & Verdict

Won three 5f nurseries on good or faster last summer; not at his best in a sales race at Newmarket when last seen and gelded afterwards; appeals as the type to carry on improving and he shaped well on good to soft on debut; shortlisted.

Form & Verdict

Improved performer this year, chasing home Umming N' Ahing at Nottingham on reappearance before winning a novice back at Nottingham and a Catterick handicap ten days ago (all 5f on good to soft or slower); 4lb better off with Umming N' Ahing for half a length so weighted to reverse those placings but she did have the benefit of a rail to run against while the winner was isolated in the middle of the course.

Soft ground was no issue back in the spring when winning in novice and handicap company; progress has rather stalled but it wasn't a bad run last time and she's on a decent mark.

Form & Verdict

Comfortable winner of a Yarmouth novice (5f, soft) on his second 2yo start; not disgraced at Royal Ascot but he delivered mixed results afterwards, running his best race when a one-length fourth behind Safari Dream at Windsor in September; gelded over the winter; tongue-tie worn last time is now discarded; others look stronger.

Form & Verdict

Fairly useful if headstrong sprinter, showing improved form when second at Kempton 17 days ago (6f, AW); quick enough for 5f and still feasibly weighted but his peak turf run came on fast ground and he could probably do with it drying out.

Has not found his best form this winter and he hung badly right in the straight here 11 days ago; dropping down the weights and the addition of a visor could have a positive effective but there are risks involved.
