Form & Verdict

Posted a career best when scoring over C&D (good to soft) last month and the form of that race looks solid; returned to be a close fourth (C&D, good) from this mark latest, despite his saddle having slipped; acts on fast ground and looks a leading player.

Astapor

9st 11lb

J: Christian Howarth

T: John David Riches

Capable front-runner on his day and he won four handicaps (two over C&D) in a productive 2023 campaign; lots of other pace to deal with today but he's drawn highest and could grab the stands' rail if the field head that way; others preferred on his return all the same.

Dual winner here on soft ground; probably needed her reappearance when beaten 3l by Astapor last month (C&D, good to soft); just shaded third from the same opponent latest, on same terms; acts on fast ground; contender.

Broke her duck at the 12th attempt at Beverley (5f, good) last August; well below that level on her final start last season and again on her reappearance (5f, AW); 3lb higher than her winning mark; more needed.

Form & Verdict

0-7 but probably has a race like this in him; went closest to winning at Ripon (5f, good to soft) last August and held that form for a couple more starts, until a below-par effort when last seen eight months ago; will need to improve on his form when fresh to win this.

0-14 this year, though has been placed on four occasions; below par in four of last five outings; chance largely depends on how well he responds to first-time headgear.

Just two wins from 36 starts, both of them coming last August; several good efforts from the front this year, beaten a short head at Beverley on his penultimate start; 5f on Tapeta no problem but other pace to deal with in this field.

Four time turf winner (5f-6f), including on fast ground, most recently over C&D last August; ended last season going close here when 1lb higher; ran no sort of race when last over C&D (soft) on reappearance; has been given a break since and is not ruled out.

Former sprinter who's not as good now and has become inconsistent; no problem with an easy, turning 7f when winning on turf in August but this is the first time he's been 1m and his stamina will be tested over a straight course.

5f turf (fast ground) and dual AW winner; respectable recent reappearance effort at Hamilton (5f, good); could come on for that run and no surprise if he is a serious player this time.

T: Iain Jardine

Won a 20-runner handicap off 5lb higher at Ayr (5f, good to soft) last September but he's not matched that since including on Tapeta in his last seven starts; has some questions to answer and all of his wins have been at 5f.

Not in top form since returned to AW, modest fourth at Newcastle most recently; however, resurgent show is possible, being a dual C&D scorer who has slipped to a handy mark.
