J: Connor Planas

Triple AW winner, who turned things around after a break when going close from wide draw over C&D last month; wandered around in the closing stages of that race but he's on same mark here and is a key player if he can repeat that form.

J: Jack Mitchell

Always prominent when running away with a C&D handicap in May; less good in three runs since but he's back down in the weights and he's run well after similar breaks in the past; not ruled out.

4 yo Gelding

OR: 59

Form & Verdict

Unexposed 4yo; ran well on heavy ground at Catterick on his handicap debut in September; dropped away tamely on his return to action at Leicester last month but he could prove a different proposition with that behind him; dam a dirt winner in the US and switching to AW could spark progress.

Unplaced all four starts for Michael Appleby and now 0-14 overall; didn't run badly over 6f last time and is not fully exposed over 7f but others in this field have much stronger claims.

J: Hollie Doyle

T: Michael Appleby

12-race maiden; has bits of encouraging form and this is just his third run for Mick Appleby, but he's not proven over this far and looks opposable on balance; well beaten in his two runs with a visor for former yard and now tries cheekpieces.

Form & Verdict

Had a hot spell in the summer of 2021 but the handicapper caught up and he drew a blank in 2022; well beaten on his return to action 12 days ago; on a lowly mark but would like to see a bit more from him before getting involved.

Form & Verdict

Running well in low-grade events on AW this year, winning over 6f at Wolverhampton in March and again over C&D two weeks ago; wasn't as slowly away there as can be the case; chance if breaking well again, for all this is a better race.

Good effort when winning a 14-runner 5f handicap at Southwell last April; off for 405 days afterwards but he returned with a close third over 5f here two weeks ago (solid form); 1lb higher today but his rider's 3lb claim is handy; needs taking seriously.

Infrequent winner but well handicapped and didn't get the breaks when behind Mellys Flyer at Chelmsford 12 days ago (5f); 2lb drop comes in handy and, whilst mostly seen on the AW these days, he's capable on turf; cheekpieces replaced by new headgear combination.

He has dropped a long way in the weights and he ran creditably in a 5f seller at Wolverhampton ten days ago (first-time visor, retained); a bit more will be needed back in a handicap.
