Form & Verdict

7yo who won this race in 2021 and 2022; still 2lb higher than for that last success but he's run respectably at Haydock and over C&D in his last two starts and he's versatile ground-wise; could make a serious impact again if he can find a bit of extra spark and he's respected.

Got back in the groove when scoring off a reduced mark at Musselburgh (7f, good to soft) last month and he had some traffic issues when never dangerous at Hamilton last time; remains well treated on his old form and has claims if things go his way back in trip.

Now 3lb lower than for his Hamilton win (8.3f, good to firm) last June but he's not been in the same form since and was tailed off in the Hunt Cup at Thirsk last time; has something to prove back in trip and he has a wide draw on his first run at this track.

Generally disappointing since bagging a good prize here (8.5f, good to firm) on Oaks day in June but is 1lb below that mark now and took good step back in right direction when fourth at Ayr (1m2f, good to soft) ten days ago; can't be ruled out.

All wins at 7f-8.5f on good to firm, the most recent off 1lb higher at Epsom in June; largely below that form since and has a question to answer back up in distance.

Had raced on only good or good to firm prior to heavy defeat at Newmarket (1m1f, good to soft) two weeks ago after wind surgery; that was also first run since last July, so there would be clear reasons for a much more prominent showing today.

Struggled last year but is back on a competitive mark for his new yard; as with a few others in here tonight's trip looks a minimum, though, back down from 8.6f round Wolverhampton.

Form & Verdict

Has record of 5-16 on turf and his last success was over C&D (good) last August; returned from seven months off with a good third from wide draw here (soft) two weeks ago and he did best of the prominent runners in that race; looks interesting off unchanged mark and this return to quicker ground is a positive.

Keen-going front-runner who's had a couple of wide stalls to deal with on turf lately, running well at Chester (likes it there) before being taken on and bombing at York; a lot will hinge on how he settles and whether he gets his own way.

Campaigned on AW since autumn 2021 and he went close off this mark at Southwell (7f) on his penultimate run; has claims if he can transfer that form back to turf but this is a step back up in grade and he has a tough draw.

Free-going gelding who's gone well fresh a few times in the past and did so again on his 7f Wolverhampton comeback, when always well positioned from a handy stall (third win over that C&D); is fine on turf and looks a likely player up just 1lb.

Many of his best efforts have been at this track and he was good front-running third back here (7f, soft) on his seasonal return two weeks ago; has stall 1 this time but this is a big step back up in grade and his last win was two years ago; others look stronger.

Well handicapped on his best form for the Gosden yard but losing spell goes back to 2020 and he's been well held in two runs for new yard this season; ran into some trouble over C&D last time but was behind three of today's rivals in that race and others are more convincing.

Only recent blip came in a race here that didn't pan out for him; free to post and in the race last time at Wolverhampton, so deserves credit for pushing Wadacre Gomez so close; hold-up performer who could have this run to suit with lots of pace on.

Completed a double when scoring over C&D for Andrew Balding last May; left that trainer for 70,000gns in October and he made a solid start for new yard when fourth in his bid for a repeat success here 15 days ago; that was eyecatching from off the pace and he's closely matched with Percy's Lad and Boardman on that form; shortlisted.
