Form & Verdict

Failed to progress last season and not at his very on either run this term, but his fourth of eight at Ayr (1m2f, good) was a step back in the right direction and he continues to drop down the weights; should be fine now back up to 1m4f and he's capable of a bold show.

Two 1m4f wins at Ripon last June (good to firm/good) and best form when close second over that same C&D last Saturday (soft); the latter was after 311 days off and puts him on the shortlist off the same mark today.

Form & Verdict

Displayed promise on fast ground last summer on his first two starts and he was a fair fourth of 14 at Bath (11.6f, soft) in April on his handicap debut; subsequently sold out of Roger Varian's yard for 22,000gns; remains very lightly raced and he's not ruled out on stable debut; watch the betting.

Off the mark at the 14th attempt when forging clear in a Newcastle handicap (1m4f, Tapeta) 13 days ago; 6lb higher on this step back up in trip but he was strong at the finish last time and remains well treated on his best form; respected.

Inclined to pull hard in a messy affair on his C&D comeback last Monday (backed into favouritism) and did well to only go down by a neck; is in off the same mark, which is clearly within range if things fall better tonight.

Form & Verdict

Two wins last year (11.4f/1m5f, good/AW) and encouraging third of six at Doncaster (1m4f, soft) last time on his second run this season; could have more to offer now back on better ground; respected in a first-time visor.

Won over 1m3f and 1m5f on the Flat for Michael Bell in 2022; has patchy profile since last success, but he was a good second at a big price over hurdles (2m, soft) ten days ago on second run for new yard; looks on a workable mark back on the Flat and he could get involved.

Won over 1m3f and 1m5f on the Flat for Michael Bell in 2022, showing fair form, and he mostly ran respectably in that code last term; bought for 6,000gns last October; 28-1, did not show much at Wetherby (2m, soft) on hurdle debut four weeks ago.

Form & Verdict

Very lightly raced 4yo who won Beverley novice (1m2f, soft) last September and reappeared with fair sixth of 14 in Wetherby handicap (1m2f, good); shaped last time as though he would appreciate this step back up in trip and he can have a big say if handling the ground (unraced on good to firm).

Won a soft-ground novice for Tim Easterby and he returned to form to win on his stable debut at Beverley (1m2f, heavy) three weeks ago; this lightly raced 4yo had something to spare and a 5lb rise could prove lenient.

Low-mileage 4yo who won C&D novice on soft ground in September; safely held in both handicaps this spring (1m2f/1m4f) but had excuse on latter occssion (bled from the nose) and the return to this track is an obvious plus.

Form & Verdict

He's fully 7lb lower than when winning at Chester last June but has struggled to get competitive since and was tailed off on his reappearance; major turnaround needed in reapplied tongue-tie and first-time visor.
