Form & Verdict

Goes well in the mud and pulled well clear of the third (Cold Stare) when edged out over C&D two weeks ago; not disgraced at Chester on Wednesday and ought to be in the thick of things if turning out again.

9st 5lb

J: Cam Hardie

T: Tony Coyle & Kaine Wood

Never really got involved after slow start on last month's seasonal debut, but his subsequent fourth at Leicester (7f, soft) was a decent effort and he's now 4lb lower than when scoring over C&D on soft ground last May.

Form & Verdict

Not the force of old but his current mark reflects that; ran respectably when third over C&D last month, but he has ground to make up with runner-up Broken Spear and others appeal more for the win.

Form & Verdict

Had an excuse for a poor run at Redcar (raced apart from the main body of runners) last time and he comes firmly into the reckoning judged on his second in a big field at Doncaster (6f, soft) the time before; still low mileage for this stable; high on the list.

Held on narrowly from Silky Wilkie at Bath (off 3lb lower) a fortnight ago, taking record on heavy going to 2-2; doesn't necessarily need ground that deep; likely player provided he remains in similar form.

Prominent racer; now 2lb lower than for his Chelmsford win in November (5f); mixed bag since, including when only seventh at Doncaster two weeks ago (had run well in the corresponding race in 2023); tough task trying to dominate this field but he's 1-1 on heavy ground and also goes well on soft.

Goes well on soft ground; finished just behind Cold Stare when third at Thirsk in April, and shaped as if still in good form (faded under aggressive ride) when fourth of 12 at Salisbury nine days ago; respected.

Usually seen over further and the ground was heavy when he won over 5f at Newmarket in November; fair effort on his return from four months off when fourth of eight here (6f) 19 days ago, but others are preferred over this trip.

Successful twice on the AW last winter; bumped into well-handicapped rivals when second in the mud at Windsor (6f) on his last two starts, finishing clear of the third last time; holding his form well and deserves a return to winning ways.

Might have needed his latest run after four months off; previously in good form last autumn, winning twice over 7f on the AW, but his turf record is less persuasive and he's not proven on ground softer than good.

Form & Verdict

Ended 2021 on the up, reeling off an AW hat-trick over 6f; ran only twice last year, a second of 12 at Wolverhampton in November suggesting he retains his ability; still low mileage but returns from another layoff and has to prove he's as good on grass (has raced only on good or softer).
