Form & Verdict

Won a Newmarket maiden (7f, good to firm) last July and looked unlucky wen third in a Wolverhampton nursery (9.4f) in the autumn but she ended her 2yo campaign with a disappointing run at Windsor (1m2f, good); on dangerous mark but she has a mixed record so far and comes with risks attached on her return.

Form & Verdict

Showed ability in his three starts at up to 8.3f last season before being gelded; his useful pedigree suggests this step up in trip is a likely positive on handicap debut and he needs watching in market on his return.

Form & Verdict

Major improver with a hood added since switched to handicaps this spring and he followed his Yarmouth win (1m2f, soft) in April with an emphatic success at Haydock (1m2f, good to firm) last week; well treated under a penalty for that win (due to be 3lb higher in future) and has strong claims in his hat-trick bid.

Dual 1m2f winner (fair form) for Ed Dunlop in spring 2023 when the hooded was first installed; it's been kept since but he ended 2023 Flat campaign on a low note (July) and was soundly beaten on hurdling debut at Market Rasen six weeks ago, when settling him was again a problem.

Made it 4-7 on AW when completing a double at Wolverhampton (1m4f) in March; another good effort when third there (9.4f) next time but things didn't go well back on turf at Windsor (11.4f, good to firm) last month and he's now 0-7 in this sphere; passed over.

Rated 11lb lower than when last successful over C&D this time last year; often slowly into stride, but pretty consistent since introduced to blinkers; this probably represents a better fit than the 1m2f he tackled at Chelmsford last time.

C&D winner who is now 10lb lower than when last successful and has run with credit lately, but despite having been below his last winning mark for a while his losing run is up to 14; also a suspicion that he needs a stiffer test than this these days.

Form & Verdict

Has quite a lot of stamina in his useful pedigree; had mixed record in novice events and was beaten a long way at Newmarket (1m, good) two weeks ago but he showed clear promise when a close fourth at Newbury (1m3f, soft) on his second start; still has untapped potential for powerful yard and he could resume his progress back up in trip on handicap debut.

Form & Verdict

Left his 7f debut form well behind when a promising third at Lingfield (1m2f, AW) in November and he had a daunting task at Sandown (66-1) on his recent return; this is much more realistic on handicap debut and interesting to see how he figures in market.
