Form & Verdict

On a good mark and he came from off the pace to take second over 7f here three weeks ago; stays 1m and he won't need much more for the addition of cheekpieces to play a part.

Runner-up here on consecutive starts for Roger Teal in May (7f/1m, good to firm; also has form on good to soft), but lost his way during the summer and was sold for 1,000gns this month; needs to have been revitalised by the recent stable switch; cheekpieces (worn for last five runs) removed.

Form & Verdict

Conditions won't be an issue and he's now 1lb lower than for his C&D win on soft ground in October; yet to fire this year though and others make more appeal.

Into the veteran stage but he has won three AW handicaps this year already; C&D winner one year ago; met some trouble over 7f here last time and still in form; others stronger for win purposes though.

9st 8lb

J: Jack Doughty

15 career wins, the latest over C&D last summer; not getting any younger but stuck to his task pretty well when fourth on Polytrack last month and it won't be a surprise if he features here.

8/1

Form: 4-8591 CD

7 yo Gelding

OR: 77

Form & Verdict

He had slipped in the weights prior to a 1m win at Lingfield (AW) 19 days ago; 3lb rise keeps him in Class 5 company and he has run well in two visits to Brighton; solid candidate.

His six wins have been at 1m/1m2f but he finished well for a close second when upped to 1m4f here in March; up 3lb but he wasn't far off his best with that eyecatching effort and should have more to offer at this trip; key player.

Six-time winner over 1m and 1m2f; needs to bounce back from a poor effort in early February and he could be vulnerable over this new trip with a strong pace on the cards.

Won a Wolverhampton novice (6f) on his debut in the summer of 2020 but beaten in all 25 starts since; has form at this track and he's down in the weights but others look safer.

Ran well to finish second on the AW on his return from six months off in April; off the mark for the year over 7f here 19 days later but he was never in contention back on AW ten days ago; better than that and not discounted.
