Form & Verdict

2-4 on the AW, including when comfortably beating a subsequent winner on handicap debut at Southwell (5f) in March; makes his debut on grass from an 8lb higher mark, but he has a classy turf pedigree on the dam's side and remains open to further improvement; respected.

Has improved in leaps and bounds since the spring, winning handicaps at Southwell (5f, AW) and Thirsk (5f, soft) before completing the hat-trick in another Listed contest at York (5f, good to firm) a month ago; no reason why his progress should have come to an end and much respected under his penalty.

Has made the running in the past and has been consistent since winning twice on the AW early last year, including when beaten a neck by a subsequent winner at Lingfield (5f) two months ago; new headgear combination now given a go, but something to prove on only his second turf start (out of the frame in the first).

Looked promising early in his career but although he's been reliable since December, he hasn't managed to win this year; the handicapper has given him a chance, now 5lb lower than when second over C&D in June on his most recent AW run; other pace to contend with today.

Form & Verdict

Prominent racer who won twice over 6f (good to firm/AW) as a 2yo for Martyn Meade, but only showed his form once in four starts last year and finished tailed off on stable debut after 173 days off (gelded in the meantime) at Redcar (6f, soft; 100-1) last month; can't be recommended after that.

Form & Verdict

Finished a well-held fifth of nine on his Newmarket debut (6f, good to firm) last summer, though the form of that race worked out well; went on to win a couple of AW novices over 5f and now makes his handicap debut after seven months off; still open to plenty more improvement and a market check is crucial.

Capable for Kevin Ryan; struggled to recapture peak form last year and moved on for 7,000gns; placed on stable debut at Wolverhampton (5f) in January, but failed to build on that positive showing at Southwell; well drawn so can't be discounted from an easing mark.

On a long losing run but he's slipped in the weights and made a pleasing start for his new connections when third of ten at Wolverhampton last month; hit with a 2lb rise but the form looks solid and getting back on a straight track won't hurt; one to consider.

Four-time C&D winner who bids to win this race for the third year in a row, but he is returning from 226 days off this time and on the previous two occasions he had already had a run; his overall record fresh would be a cause for concern.
