Form & Verdict

Two wins in the first half of 2022, including when justifying strong support at Newcastle (1m2f, Tapeta) last April; looks well treated on that form but he's been quiet in last six starts and missed the break again at Lingfield last time; others preferred.

Form & Verdict

His last win was off 10lb higher over C&D but that was 14 months ago and he's been well held here in his last three starts; now drops back into a Class 6 event but he needs cheekpieces to give him a lift.

J: Marco Ghiani

His two most recent wins came over C&D, the latest nearly two years ago, and although he hasn't looked like ending the losing run in his most recent starts he's now 11lb lower than this time last year; place claims.

OR: 62

Form & Verdict

Finished down the field in his three runs last season but he made a promising start in handicaps when a keeping-on third at Southwell (7f, Tapeta) last month; takes a big step up in trip but he's a half-brother to two middle-distance winners and is a big player if he can build on that last run.

Came good at 11th attempt, scoring in good style at Windsor (1m2f, good to firm) last month, and ran at least as well when clear second on soft ground at Haydock a fortnight later; must be considered in current mood.

His breakthrough win at Windsor (1m2f, good to firm) had been coming and it was quite comfortable in the end; 3lb rise is fine but softer ground might not be, having disappointed on good to soft and twice withdrawn due to similar conditions.

Form & Verdict

Both wins have been gained over 1m2f on Polytrack but he seems effective on Tapeta and was a creditable third on turf at Brighton last month; 1lb lower on this return to AW and he's respected from good draw.

Often pulls hard and that led to his saddle slipping on his handicap debut in March; better ground and going right-handed should help but he was again keen when below market expectations back on the Flat recently.

Form & Verdict

Has got his act together with tongue-tie/cheekpieces added here recently and he stayed on strongly when beating the favourite in a similar handicap last time; 4lb higher than for that breakthrough win but he's on a roll now and is a major player again.

Won a low-grade AW handicap in April and minor honours over C&D for new yard in his two starts switched to hurdling recently; needs to find extra and the tongue-tie he wore on last six Flat starts is restored; he also wore cheekpieces in those Flat runs but that remains absent.

Just one win from his first 28 starts but he's won three of his last seven and went close in his bid for a double at Chelmsford (1m2f, AW) last time; this return to Tapeta is no problem and he remains feasibly treated on his best form; respected.
