All wins, including over C&D, on good/good to firm; just 1lb above the latest (August) but probably best suited by 7f these days and rarely races on ground slower than good; still not ruled out with regular cheekpieces refitted.

Chepstow regular who won there in July and has been a fair fourth there the last twice; however, he needs something extra if he's to win this and it remains to be seen how he'll fare away from his favourite course.

Form & Verdict

Two 6f wins on soft as 2yo; things didn't go so well in 2022 but she started 2023 off 8lb lower than last spring and her debut for this yard on the AW 12 days ago was encouraging; likely to play a part.

Irish challenger; most of last season was a washout but he ran a cracker in a big-field 6f Curragh handicap on reappearance last April (yielding; won maiden on heavy) and this is small beer in comparison; of interest.

Off the mark on third start, in a 5f Windsor novice in August (good to firm); fair fifth in his first 6f turf handicap on final 3yo start (good to soft) and ran as if the race was needed on reappearance at Windsor last week; should still have some potential and drying ground a help.

Well bred but lightly raced; made debut in August and little to show for early efforts but suited by the drop to 6f on Kempton reappearance, overcoming some difficulties to lead close home; up in grade back on turf but is bred to be better than a 56-mark handicapper and looks likely to improve.
