Form & Verdict

0-8 but looked unlucky not to finish closer when fifth of seven over C&D (good) last month (Merricourt second); another furlong may suit ideally, but he could make his presence felt with a clearer passage.

Has done all his winning over 7f, most recently at Newcastle (AW) on last appearance three months ago; both turf wins on good to firm; bit to prove off career-high mark back at 1m.

Form & Verdict

Four of his five wins have come over 1m, including one here, but he went close off this mark over C&D (good) on his penultimate outing and may have done too much early after another slow start when fourth of ten at Ayr (7f, good) last time; blinkers replace cheekpieces and capable of playing a part, especially if breaking better.

No win since April 2022 (7f, Ayr) but has slipped to a workable mark, running consistently at Musselburgh; didn't enjoy a great deal of luck when a closing fourth over 7f there last week; returns to a trip which probably suits best; stablemate of Loom Large.

5lb lower than for her latest success at Beverley (8.5f, good) last summer, but she ended the campaign quietly and is likely to need this after 256 days off.

Form & Verdict

Six-race maiden who has run well in two of his three handicaps as when second of seven at Chelmsford (6f, AW) nine days ago, albeit he was flattered to finish as close as he did behind the eased-down winner; races off the same mark, but still has to prove his stamina over this far.

12-race maiden; has bits of encouraging form and this is just his third run for Mick Appleby, but he's not proven over this far and looks opposable on balance; well beaten in his two runs with a visor for former yard and now tries cheekpieces.

Form & Verdict

Has run consistently well on the AW since last autumn, including two wins, but just as capable on turf and landed a 0-50 classified event over C&D (good) last summer; this a better race than he normally contests these days, but he still makes plenty of appeal.

Effective elsewhere but this track really plays to his strengths, winning for the fourth time over C&D when powering clear three weeks ago; didn't get a clear run through one week later but still looked in top form; more appealing than most in here.

Three wins over this trip on the AW, including two this year, but 0-11 on turf (including three starts over hurdles) and finished behind two of these on his return to grass at Ayr (7f, good) 11 days ago; more needed.
