Form & Verdict

Remains a maiden (0-8) but twice threatened during the winter (including a handicap on good ground) and, if last season was anything to go by, he should leave his reappearance run behind; should be even better over this far judged on pedigree; respected.

Soundly beaten seventh at Hexham (2m4f, good) last month and needs to better that performance, but he's enjoyed a consistent season otherwise and is effective on good and soft ground; not written off.

Form & Verdict

Again took a keen hold at Huntingdon last time (2m3f, good) but got away with it in a weakish affair and he led on the line; up 5lb and the runner-up hadn't shown a lot in his previous handicaps; could be vulnerable.

Form & Verdict

Dual novice winner on good ground at about 2m4f; didn't run at all badly at Ayr on the back of a long absence and he met with some interference when still in with some shout at Hexham last time; both those efforts were in Class 3s; should go well.

Form & Verdict

Chased home a progressive rival when upped to 2m4f on handicap debut at Huntingdon (good to soft) and did plenty wrong last time over 3m, jumping novicey and taking a keen hold; this trip looks more suitable at this stage of his career; won his maiden here on good.

Form & Verdict

Only win came in a maiden event at Warwick a year ago and looks handicapped about right, but he did finish clear of the rest when chasing home a prolific all-the-way winner at Newton Abbot (2m2f, good to soft); stays this far and goes on the ground; quite solid.
