Form & Verdict

Won twice last summer (1m2f, good to firm/good) and he reappeared with a promising third at Pontefract (1m, good to firm) last Friday, a performance that bodes well for another progressive campaign; wears a first-time tongue-tie and he's a major player now back up in trip.

This is his trip and he returned to form when fourth here in July before disappointing with his finishing effort at Doncaster; if forgiven that then he's entitled to consideration.

Form & Verdict

Four wins (1m2f, good/good to firm) from his eight turf starts last year and he may have needed his reappearance run at Newbury a fortnight ago (1m2f, good; mid-division); could play a leading role.

Five-time 1m2f winner on turf; runner-up twice over that trip in June but his form has levelled off more recently; on a dangerous mark but stepping up to 2m isn't sure to suit (late headway over 1m4f the last twice has come in slowly-run affairs).

1-18 (0-11 on turf); makes stable debut (same owners) in a first-time tongue-tie having undergone wind surgery; down in grade, but still hard to fancy on his latest efforts.

Form & Verdict

0-8 and unproven at this trip but his dam won at up to 1m4f and he's run several good races; denied clear run when fair fourth at Wolverhampton (8.6f, AW) in March last time and could be involved if seeing it out.

Disappointing at Newcastle (1m2f, AW) in February but may have benefited from a break and he was in good form at Wolverhampton (8.6f/9.4f, AW) previously; won here (1m, good to firm) last June and could be involved.

Triple course winner (8.6f/9.4f), who has finished placed at Southwell (1m) in his last two runs; seems as good as ever as a 6yo and he still looks feasibly treated; on the shortlist.

Successful three times at Wolverhampton in the final quarter of 2023; best efforts this year when close third over C&D on two occasions, including latest start; solid contender off unaltered mark.

J: Rossa Ryan

Seen more often at Wolverhampton (three-time winner there), but he ran well when beaten less than a length into third of 13 over C&D in January; 1lb lower and holds each-way claims if able to repeat that effort.

Form & Verdict

Has posted encouraging performances at Haydock (1m2f, good/good to firm) on two of his three runs since being gelded, most recently third last Friday; this may take less winning and this course winner is one to consider.

0-13 since his successful racecourse debut and although he ran well when fourth of ten on stable debut here (1m) in December, he has failed to beat a rival in both starts since; plenty to prove.

Trained by Richard Hannon for a successful debut; has gone 0-12 in the meantime but it was a respectable stable debut over C&D in December and perhaps Chelmsford didn't suit last time.
