Form & Verdict

0-6 but he's reached the frame in his three handicaps and he finished well when runner-up here (8.3f, good to soft) 12 days ago; on unchanged mark and he's an interesting contender on his step up to this trip.

Has been well held at 16-1 or bigger in his five handicaps, including a fading fifth with cheekpieces added at Beverley (1m2f, good to soft) last month; drops back in trip but he's now 0-8 and others are more convincing.

Well held at Wolverhampton on her debut in October but she's shaped with some promise in two small-field novice events at Newcastle (1m/7f) this spring; this is more realistic on handicap debut and she needs watching in market on this switch to turf.

Lightly raced 3yo who showed promise here in the spring; perhaps unsuited by heavy ground at Ayr two starts ago and by the first-time blinkers over this C&D last Tuesday (no headgear today); however, she's hard to fancy after those heavy defeats.

She has failed to progress and was tailed off at Musselburgh in July; however, the cheekpieces adopted that day are left off, she's had a break since, and there are some firm pointers in her pedigree that this lightly raced 3yo could be suited by today's first encounter with testing ground.

Form & Verdict

Looks well handicapped on his best 2yo form but he's an inconsistent seven-race maiden who was tailed off in a Beverley handicap (1m2f, good to soft) three weeks ago; comes with risks attached and he's one of two runners for the yard.

Modest form since second start but his closest finish came when just over 3l behind Arkenstar in nine-runner handicap over C&D (good) 12 days ago, hooded for the first time and eventually getting the message as he ran on from last to fifth; that gave some hope and he's been dropped 2lb since.

Visor has helped, bar one blip at Yarrmouth, and won a weak handicap easily off 7lb lower over C&D 17 days ago; backed that up off his revised mark last Tuesday, despite pulling hard, but could maybe have done without the recent dry spell.

She had been in better form than her figures suggested prior to running out the easy winner of a 0-58 handicap over C&D on Saturday; penalty shouldn't handicap her out of things but she will need the race to set up for her and today's opposition is stronger.
