Form & Verdict

Has overall record of 2-46 but both his wins have come at this track and latest was over 6f (good) two weeks ago; 4lb higher here but he landed a gamble with a bit to spare last time and is a big player again if he gets a good pace back at 5f.

J: Joe Fanning

Versatile trip-wise having been placed at up to 1m5f, while his latest win came over 6f here in December; rather in and out since and he failed to beat a rival at Newcastle (7f, Tapeta) six days ago; others safer.

Form & Verdict

Has dropped a long way in the weights but his last win was over two years ago and he's been well held in three runs (6f) for new yard this season; this drop back in trip could help but he needs to significantly raise his game; blinkers worn last time are removed.

Form & Verdict

In good form over sprint trips at the end of last season but he's not got involved in two runs over 6f this term; record is 0-9 and he needs to get back near his best to be a factor; stablemate of One Last Hug.

J: Amie Waugh

T: Jim Goldie

An exposed 45-rated maiden prior to switching to AW in January but he's had an incredible winter, winning six handicaps here and soaring up the weights; only fourth in a Class 4 here last week though and he'll 9lb out of the weights if he gets in to this hot race.

Bonito Cavalo

9st 4lb

J: Paul Mulrennan

T: Jim Goldie

One of the success stories of the winter, reeling off a five-timer here (5f-7f) in January and February; winning spree came to an end when second past the post (subsequently demoted to third having bumped Pockley) but it was still a sound run and he's one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Her last success was off 9lb higher at Thirsk but that was at 6f (soft) back in August 2021 and she's been unplaced in her last 13 starts; opposable.

Modest overall strike-rate and losing run goes back two years; recent form hadn't been too encouraging but she did keep on at one pace when third of six over 5f here yesterday.

Form & Verdict

0-18 but she's well treated on her best form and was beaten only about 2l when a front-running fifth in big-field handicap at Naas (5f, good to yielding) last time; has possibilities if she can find a bit extra.

Seven-race maiden who has struggled in three runs (5f-7f) for a new yard this spring; blinkers are now tried back at 5f but he was tailed off at Musselburgh last week and has a lot to prove.
