Form & Verdict

Has lots of placed form while managing only one win; however, she's nicely handicapped having gained the sole success off 3lb higher; creditable second at Musselburgh most recently; in the mix.

In good form this season, scoring in good style off 6lb lower on reappearance (1m, heavy) before finishing close third to Do I Dream with a 4lb penalty at Ripon last time (1m, heavy); this stiff 7f should be no problem; should go well again.

Form & Verdict

Sole win came in 2020 but currently in decent form; ties in closely with Cosa Sara and Hostelry on two creditable efforts (1m Ayr then 1m1f Musselburgh) this month, and didn't get a clear run over 1m2f here yesterday; not ruled out if making a quick return to action.

Bit of support ahead of his comeback here last month and the return to blinkers, worn for last autumn's Musselburgh win (likes it there), could help; doesn't arrive in any form though.

Successful five times (on good/soft) last spring/summer; creditable second over C&D (good to firm) on penultimate start and filled the same position at Hamilton three days later; rested 17 days since; threatening to regain the winning thread and warrants respect.

Beaten long way over hurdles here last month (bled from nose); 0-12 on Flat and all his placed form is over further than 1m; something to prove back at this trip.

23-race maiden; wasn't beaten far (1.75l) when fourth to today's rival Spirit Of Ash over C&D in November, and meets that mare on improved terms if factoring in the 7lb claim of Tom Kiely-Marshall; latest effort excusable (1m6f), so isn't a forlorn hope from a career-low mark.

Ended a long losing run with his emphatic win over 7f here (3-1) in February and he gave it a decent shot when a 2l fourth over C&D last time; still unexposed as a sprinter and he shouldn't be far away.

Ended a long losing run with his emphatic win over 7f here (3-1) in February and he had an excuse when badly hampered on his return visit (6f) last month; remains very well treated on his old form and this Irish raider looks worth anther chance.

Three-time AW scorer for previous yard; only sixth of seven here (7f) three weeks ago on debut for new stable; turf record (four attempts) is not entirely solid but this drop in class may help.

Two wins (on good going) last May were the highlights of his inconsistent 2022 season; withdrawn (upset in stalls) final intended run; goes well fresh and therefore needs a close look on return from ten-month absence.
