Form & Verdict

Made a narrow winning debut over C&D (good to soft) last August; has mixed record in four runs since but he was good third back here (1m5f, good to soft) 12 days ago and was just behind Faylaq in that Class 3 event; respected back in trip.

Both wins over 1m4f at Hamilton, including penultimate start (3lb higher today), but arguably his most promising performance came when beaten a head over 1m6f at Nottingham last October when denied a clear run before finishing strongly; form dipped on latest outing when tried for the first time on good to firm; however, he probably retains overall potential and has plenty of stamina in the pedigree, so looks very interesting on this AW debut.

Back to form with third at Hamilton (1m5f, good to soft) last month and he won there (1m4f, good) next time; this lightly raced 4yo is open to further improvement and could play a leading role up 3lb provided he handles the ground (unraced on firmer than good).

Form & Verdict

Just one win from 19 starts but that was an emphatic success at Beverley (1m4f, good to soft) last month and he backed that up with a good second at Chester (1m4f, soft) last week; goes back up in grade but he's on same mark as last time and is a key player.

Form & Verdict

Peak efforts suggest this mark is manageable but he's spent most of his career on AW and he's not fired Wolverhampton (2m, Tapeta) or Musselburgh (1m6f, good to soft) this season; this drop back to 1m4f could help but that was a heavy defeat last time and others are preferred.

Stays 2m; landed the rescheduled November Handicap over 1m4f at Newcastle (off 3lb lower) in 2023 and two frame efforts this year were similar form; form dipped on AW Championships day, admittedly when 40-1 over just 1m2f but his strike-rate is modest.

Form & Verdict

Ended last season with 1m6f win at Salisbury (good to soft) before being sold out of the Charltons' stable for 85,000gns; still unexposed at middle distances but he made a low-key start for this yard at Thirsk (1m4f, soft) last month and needs to leave that form behind; blinkers back on.

Five course wins (1m3f-1m5f) for this yard in 2022; also won a Listed race in Abu Dhabi in December but she was held in Dubai in her first three runs this year and has struggled since rejoining Jim Goldie this spring; conditions are no problem but has something to prove and she needs to get right back near her best; stablemate of Faylaq.

Won a Doncaster novice (1m2f, good) last July and was a good third in Newbury handicap (1m4f) on his penultimate run last season; finished down the field in last two starts but was beaten less than 3l at Kempton (1m3f, AW) on his return last month; should benefit from that run and he still has scope for further progress.

Form & Verdict

All three wins were gained in 2019 but he's well treated on his best form last season and has finished placed here (1m5f/1m3f, good to soft) in both runs this term; yard has won this three times since 2016 and he's an interesting contender.
