Form & Verdict

Had dropped 1lb below his last winning mark when first past the post at Haydock (7f, good to soft) last month, but was demoted for causing interference; raised 4lb for that and ran well off this mark when fourth of 15 at Thirsk (7f, good) seven days later; claims on form, but he wouldn't want the ground to firm up too much.

Scored over C&D in 2022; two from two this term, winning at Doncaster (made most) and Musselburgh (made all); better than ever and warrants respect despite being on career-high mark.

J: Clifford Lee

Well suited by an easy, turning 7f (C&D winner last summer), is fine on any ground and well drawn for one happiest on the sharp end; came away with a subsequent winner on his soft-ground comeback four weeks ago and should go well again upped 4lb.

Form & Verdict

Four wins last year, three of them over this trip on turf on ground ranging from good to firm to good to soft; still 7lb higher than for the most recent, but he has run very well to be beaten less than a length off this mark in his last two starts over shorter distances, looking unfortunate not to score at Ayr (6f, good) 11 days ago; major chance back over this trip.

Form & Verdict

Two wins over C&D (good) last August ended a 20-race losing run and he has performed well in all three starts since, including when just beaten at Ayr (7f, good) 11 days ago; races off the same mark and one of the likelier winners.

A fair 7f winner at his best but he has yet to fire in two 6f Newcastle handicaps this term so needs to take a big step forward.

Looks on a favourable mark based on her three placed efforts last season and ran better than it looked having met a bit of trouble when eighth of 20 on her York return (7f, good to firm) last month; shortlisted.

Three wins last year, the latest when narrowly beating a useful sort at Southwell (1m, AW) in October; hasn't threatened in either start since returning last month and he may need a stiffer test than this now.

Three wins (7f/1m) last year and latest was off 5lb higher, but he has form figures of 79690 this season and was beaten 14l at Haydock (1m, good) last time; cheekpieces are now added and he needs a major turnaround.

Form & Verdict

Sole win in eight starts in France came on the AW and has shown nothing in three outings since debuting for this yard last August, including when beaten miles into last of seven on his Thirsk return (6f, heavy; first start since being gelded); tongue-tie will need to make a dramatic difference.

Dual turf winner (once over C&D) for David O'Meara in the autumn and seemingly boosted by first-time cheekpices when scoring on AW in December, his third start for Michael Dods; still in fairly good form at start of this year; returns from ten-week break today.

Three-time winner on dirt in Sweden in 2021 and dual winner on turf last year; not clear run when fourth here (1m) last September and will need a solid pace over 7f which isn't certain; off six months.

Form & Verdict

All six starts since the beginning of 2022 have been at Meydan, showing fair form in the first of two outings there this year when fourth of eight in a 0-103 contest (5f, good); sole win came at Chelmsford (6f, AW) in August 2021, but he does stay this far and stable doesn't send many here; worth monitoring in the market.

Chelmsford maiden winner (6f, Polytrack) for Saeed bin Suroor as a 2yo, but that is his only success in 14 starts and he was struggling on turf at Meydan when last seen; makes his debut for his new yard after 256 days off, having changed hands for 8,000gns in the autumn; needs a market check.
