Form & Verdict

Some good runs on AW this year at up to 2m and another when back on turf at Newmarket (1m6f, soft) three weeks ago, finishing 4l sixth of 16; also effective on good going (unproven on faster) and might not be far away.

Often front-runs but hasn't for his best results here; pulled too hard in this race two years ago; an improved performer last term and he's well handicapped judged on plenty of that form, but the scale of defeat in his two AW runs this year is a concern; visor replaces usual cheekpieces.

J: Harry Davies

Often front-runs; well beaten on 2023 return but won eight days later, so perhaps his heavy defeat in a warm race five weeks ago should not be viewed too harshly; had a solid campaign last year and although his score is just 1-9 on AW, he is effective over C&D; each-way chance if back on song.

Form & Verdict

Struggled in Dubai this year on his two runs for Bhupat Seemar but he was a fine fourth on his stable debut in the Chester Cup (2m2f, soft) a fortnight ago, when denied a clear run; won on fast ground with the Gosdens and he could play a leading role with William Buick taking the ride.

Good start for this stable last year in the Chester Cup (unlucky fourth), at Haydock and Royal Ascot and he was reportedly struck into on his next start; however, fair fourth at Ascot is far and away the best of his last five outings; big player if only he could recapture initial British 2023 efforts.

Good start for new stable in the Chester Cup, at Haydock and Royal Ascot and he was reportedly struck into on his next start; fair fourth at Ascot on penultimate start but tailed off either side of that, last time in the C&D Trial; player if only he could recapture initial British 2023 efforts.

Inconsistent but good to soft ground was against him when well beaten on reappearance at Musselburgh and he's just 1lb higher than when winning at Ascot (2m, good to firm) last August; capable of a bold show.

Form & Verdict

Progressive last year after being switched to AW and upped in trip, winning at Chelmsford (2m/1m6f) the last twice; early turf career (over shorter trips) wasn't without promise and this unexposed 4yo is respected now back on grass on his reappearance.

Went close here last September before two Chelmsford wins, latterly off this mark; came in for support back on Polytrack over C&D nine days ago, returning from a short break, and is one to consider for last year's successful yard.

Made good strides last year once switched to Polytrack and raised in distance, winning at Chelmsford (2m/1m6f) on final two starts; reappearance was respectable but will need to run better than he has of late, last time making no impression in the Northumberland Plate.

In good form on Dundalk AW in the winter, winning twice (1m4f/2m), and was reportedly unsuited by the soft going when tailed off at Newmarket last time; this Irish raider is now ruled out now back on better ground.

Won two in a row at Lingfield (2m, AW) in first part of spring and completed the hat-trick on turf debut at Doncaster (2m, soft) three weeks ago; beat just three rivals last time and is up 10lb but she had plenty in hand and this progressive 4yo holds strong claims if today's ground isn't an issue.

Form & Verdict

Better than ever for Ian Williams last year and he runs off his last winning mark; made his stable and seasonal debut at Chester a fortnight ago and has never run well there, but he was tailed off and there is a big question mark regarding his current form.

Had a fine summer last season in final campaign for Ian Williams; ran well in 2018 on soft and heavy but peak efforts have been when the ground is less testing; stays very well but he has not shone in his four visits to Chester, including last two editions of this race.
