Form & Verdict

4yo who has raced just four times, and was down the field at York (7f, good to firm) last month on his stable and seasonal debut; however, he may have needed that outing and performed well on both starts last year; drops back down in grade here and is not ruled out.

Form & Verdict

0-26 since winning on debut in 2020 and hasn't really threatened this year; however, he didn't run badly at Brighton three weeks ago when back from a break and his mark continues to fall; trainer's horses are running well and he's not discounted in reapplied cheekpieces (has run well in them).

9yo who has been running well since these cheekpieces went on and won at Goodwood (1m1f, good) last Friday; that was an apprentice handicap so he escapes a penalty and holds strong claims here.

J: Tommie Jakes

T: Linda Perratt

Veteran; ex-Jack Channon; last win was on Tapeta for this yard at Newcastle in March (1m); just as effective on turf but most of his wins have come on good/good to firm (won on good to soft in France); others more persuasive.

Form & Verdict

Reduced mark appeals on AW form as recent as January and he's also effective on turf; however, he's struggled to get competitive on his last four starts and needs to turn things around.

J: Callum Shepherd

T: Michael Appleby

BHA-rated 89 early in his career but his form dropped off in 2023; sold for 9,000gns last summer and he made a perfect start for his new yard when running out the easy winner of a 7f handicap at Lingfield last week (well backed); good Topspeed figure there and he's greatly respected under a penalty.

Form & Verdict

Having been in good form he deservedly got off the mark (at the 13th attempt) when making all at Nottingham (8.3f, good to firm) a fortnight ago; he's just 3lb higher here and can make another bold bid.

Well handicapped on last year's best form for Brian Meehan and he took a step back in the right direction when fifth at Wetherby last month, but he's since been well beaten at Redcar and has something to prove.

Successful off 6lb lower at Wolverhampton in December and has run to a similar level in defeat in his three runs since; rider's claim will help matters and he is unlikely to be far away.

A couple of lesser efforts on slow turf since returned to 6f in July but otherwise consistent at this trip and followed a Wolverhampton win with a C&D second to a reviver; no standout at the weights now back up 2lb but still likely to have a say.

Form & Verdict

Displayed ability among his three starts for Joseph O'Brien last April-July (1m-1m2f); returns to action for a new yard having been gelded; there's bundles of potential in his pedigree and trainer has excellent record with recruits from other stables; very interesting, especially if well backed.
