Form & Verdict

12-race maiden but he's been placed in his last four starts and didn't get any luck before finishing fast for a close third at Bath (1m, good) 16 days ago; only 1lb higher here and he's an interesting contender.

Capable off this mark but he showed a dark side here nine days ago (well backed), unruly beforehand and then veering right and unseating his rider leaving the stalls; risky.

Form & Verdict

Half-brother to four winners and he's out of German 7f Listed winner; well held at biggish prices in three AW novice events (7f/1m) during the winter but he's been gelded since and could show a lot more now switched to a handicap on his return; needs a close look.

Came up well short in AW novice events, then had gelding operation; has looked better in turf handicaps (over 1m) the last twice, finishing second at Chepstow (behind a subsequent scorer) then third at Bath; solid claims in this ordinary maiden race.

Form & Verdict

Got off the mark at the 21st attempt when landing a Wolverhampton handicap (9.4f, AW) last month but he's been well held on Tapeta and turf (1m2f, firm) in both runs since; still 3lb higher than for his win and has work to do back at this trip.

J: Darragh Keenan

T: David Evans

His win came off 2lb higher here (9.4f) in May but he's not matched that since and has been well below form in his last two runs (1m2f); record now stands at 1-26 and has plenty to prove again with regular headgear removed.

Form & Verdict

0-9 but he's reached the frame in his last five handicaps including a close call on his step up to 1m at Doncaster (good) two weeks ago; went down fighting under a positive ride in that race and he's a big player off only 1lb higher here.

Didn't see out 8.7f here from a wide stall last time (switched from cheekpieces to blinkers); he's landed stall 12 again, though, and is an exposed maiden.

Form & Verdict

Took his form up a notch in first-time visor when landing a Newcastle handicap (7f, Tapeta) in April but was disappointing in his follow-up bid there (1m) last month; bit to prove again after that and he needs to resume his progress back on turf.

Went the wrong way after winning 7f Tapeta handicap in first-time visor for Tom Dascombe last spring but, following a break, made quite encouraging stable debut when fourth (behind Lupset Flossy Pop) over C&D this month (no headgear); might come on for the run; sports refitted cheekpieces.

Form & Verdict

All three runs have been on Polytrack; found plenty of progress on her second start when a close fourth of 14 at Lingfield (7f) in December but she was beaten 14l back there in March; now makes her handicap debut but she's hard to weigh up and has bit to prove back up in trip after another break.

Far from solid on her 7f/1m form and lacks recent match practice having been absent since June; enough to prove dropped in distance.
