Form & Verdict

Won twice on soft ground for Dermot Weld as a 3yo and has been revived since joining this stable, winning at Wolverhampton in March and running a cracker when second over C&D in April; quick ground would be an unknown (raced only on good or softer) but otherwise has plenty in his favour.

Form & Verdict

Just denied in the Stewards' Cup last summer off this mark but ended 2022 out of form, soft ground a valid excuse on his final outing; has a chance if ready to roll after seven months off but others have more obvious claims.

Smart in his time (Group 3 winner), but losing run up to 19 despite plummeting down the weights; best watched for now.

Without a win in three years; this season is turning into a struggle and not sure his recent fifth of seven at Thirsk offered sufficient encouragement that he's about to turn a corner; soft ground is unlikely to be ideal.

Over three years since his last win; down the field in two hot handicaps this season but last season's peak effort came when a close second in the Stewards' Cup and he's now 4lb lower; not straightforward but more than enough ability to contend.

7 yo Mare

OR: 82

Form & Verdict

Likeable mare with eight sprint wins to her name, four of them in the middle of last season; well beaten on her reappearance at Musselburgh last Sunday, but 1m was too far that day and she may well bounce back over this more suitable distance; good second on her only previous go at Newmarket.

Form & Verdict

Evergreen 8yo who has a C&D success to his name and notched win number 11 at Lingfield in March at 40-1; however, this is more competitive and he'll do well to follow up off 2lb higher.

Good effort at Lingfield on his penultimate start but he was bitterly disappointing back there five weeks ago; could prove vulnerable again.
