Form & Verdict

0-11 last year but ran some good races (including on fast ground) and he reappeared with a front-running win over C&D (soft) in April; he's just 2lb higher today and is capable of another bold show.

Form & Verdict

He could do with breaking more alertly but he's well treated judged on last season's wins and was a good third off this mark at Redcar (1m2f, good to firm) on Monday; every chance he'll be in the mix once more.

Won this race in 2021 and also landed the 0-105 C&D handicap at this meeting in 2022; a 1m2f Redcar win (soft) last week shows he's still capable of useful form and he's effectively running off only 2lb higher here; respected.

Form & Verdict

Consistent sort who reappeared with close second in the Thirsk Hunt Cup (1m, soft) then went one better at Hamilton (8.3f, good to soft); the runner-up/third from last time have both since gone one better; he didn't really convince at this sort of trip last season but it's worth another go and he handles fast ground; has to be respected given his current fine form.

Went off the boil in the autumn but has dipped back to the mark he defied on soft ground at Hamilton last summer; won first time up in 2022 and went down only to Northern Express in this race on his 2023 reappearance; that good record fresh puts him high on the shortlist.

Form & Verdict

Best form is on AW and he made it 0-6 on turf when soundly beaten at York a fortnight ago; however, he has a lower mark to work with on grass and today's drop back in grade can only help; not discounted.

Form & Verdict

Improved form in blinkers on AW this winter and he's also effective on turf; returned from a break at Newmarket a fortnight ago and could improve for that run, but he would be of greater interest if the blinkers were going back on; wears cheekpieces, which haven't had a positive effect previously.
