Form & Verdict

Easy win at Doncaster (7f, soft) last month and good second of 14 at Chester (7f, soft) most recently; he's back on better ground today but has won on good to firm going in the past and this in-form 4yo is one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Disappointing on reappearance at Chester a fortnight ago, especially as she has a good record fresh and likes that track and soft ground; however, perhaps she needed the run this time around and she's run really well on all three previous visits to Haydock; not ruled out.

Well beaten on both Chester runs this season but one was her reappearance and the other was a tough Listed assignment; in between she went close at Haydock and she was a two-time course winner last year (7f, soft/good to soft); could go well now back in a handicap in first-time cheekpieces.

Respectable third in this race 12 months ago but isn't certain to repeat that effort; 2lb higher this time and was always behind in similar event over C&D at the Craven meeting on reappearance.

Failed to shine the last twice, behind Dashing Dick on the July course and latterly at Haydock; however, he's off the same mark as when winning this for the third time in four years 12 months ago and his previous race last year was nothing to shout about.

Below par on final two runs last season and same story on this month's reappearance at Chester; however, he could be sharper for that run and has dropped below his last winning mark; went close over C&D last May and is not ruled out with Frankie Dettori booked.

Below best last year on final three runs for Sir Mark Prescott and sold for 26,000gns last October; however, he makes his stable debut having had a second wind operation and in a first-time tongue-tie, and he's on a competitive mark on his best form; the betting could be informative.

Twice finished second at Southwell (1m, AW) in the winter but below par the last twice, most recently tailed off at Leicester on soft ground he should have handled; needs to bounce back in a first-time tongue-tie.

Form & Verdict

Well beaten on first two starts for this yard and has plenty to prove, but he's well treated on his best form for Charlie Hills and perhaps the first-time cheekpieces will trigger a revival; not written off.

Showed useful form for previous yard; 0-11 for current stable but last few efforts, most recently going close off this mark at Leicester (7f) last week, suggest his turn is near; appears to have a leading chance (due to go up 3lb from tomorrow).

Capable of smart form when trained by Charles Hills; struggled initially for this yard but there was much more encouragement off his much-reduced mark at Ayr last week (1m, good to soft), keeping on strongly having met trouble in running; can't discount now he's found his level.

Won at Salisbury (6f, good to firm) last May on his second start and completed a hat-trick at Sandown (7f, good) in August; his progression stalled in September but this lightly raced 4yo returns having been gelded and could have more to offer for his leading connections.
