C&D winner who scored with something in hand at Beverley (1m2f, good to soft) on his penultimate run before a creditable third behind Greystoke back here two weeks ago; has swing in the weights with his old rival and he should be thereabouts again.

Successful at Beverley (1m2f, good to soft) in April and back to winning ways over C&D (good; Zealandia behind in fourth) in May; badly hampered in the early stages back at Beverley last time, so it's easy enough to put a line through that run; respected

Form & Verdict

Dual AW winner last summer, with last success off 7lb lower at Southwell (1m3f); ran well for long way on her Kempton reappearance run but she's failed to beat a rival in two previous attempts on turf; one of those was in the St Leger but latest was in a handicap and she has some questions to answer back in this sphere.

Won twice on AW as a 2yo; best turf run came over C&D last May, third of ten having made up a lot of ground in the straight; mixed record since but he's dropped a long way in the weights and he should be sharper with his reappearance behind him.

Form & Verdict

1-15 in France; made a winning start for this yard when scoring at 33-1 at York (1m4f, good) last June but he was back on the sidelines for ten months after that and has struggled in both runs this spring; drops back in grade off only 1lb higher than for last win but he needs a major revival.

J: Jim Crowley

Ran creditably in defeat in two of his four appearances at this track and although 2m2f seemed too much of a slog here in September, that was on soft ground; good runs at 1m6f either side of that and he kept on well for a narrow 2m win on Newcastle AW on New Year's Day; disappointing on latest start (February) but not out of it on his best AW form.

Now only 1lb higher than for his Newcastle win (1m4f, Tapeta) last August but he has a mixed record since and was beaten 14l when seventh of eight at Ascot (cheekpieces added) two weeks ago; that took his turf record to 1-10 and others are more convincing.

Won three times last year (twice on turf) and improved again when Listed third at Lingfield (1m5f, AW) in November; went up the weights as a result and was only sixth of seven in an AW handicap next time, but in view of her progressive profile she's not ruled out on this return to action.

Dual-purpose performer who has been in good form back on the Flat this year including a comfortable win over C&D (soft) two weeks ago; up 5lb but he still looks feasibly treated and this return to much quicker ground is no problem; key player.

Won on handicap debut at Wolverhampton (9.4f, AW) in January and he's finished runner-up in two of his three runs since, including over C&D (soft) last time; 3lb higher here but that was a good effort on his first run at this trip and he's open to more improvement; shortlisted.
