Along with two of these rivals he lost his chance at the start in the Epsom Dash (also banged his head leaving stalls); consistent otherwise this year, winning four times, but is consequently back up the weights.

One of the runners hindered by stalls malfunction in the Epsom Dash two weeks ago; largely consistent otherwise; close second off 2lb higher here last August but has the widest draw this time.

J: Kaiya Fraser

Won first time out in 2022 and ran well on last season's comeback off a much higher mark, which bodes well; he's happiest on easy courses too, so there are positives under experienced 5lb claimer Kaiya Fraser.

Consistent in the main; creditable second in three of his last four races, beaten only half a length back on AW latest; threatening to regain the winning thread and holds solid claims.

J: Jack Mitchell

Looked promising early in his career but although he's been reliable since December, he hasn't managed to win this year; the handicapper has given him a chance, now 5lb lower than when second over C&D in June on his most recent AW run; other pace to contend with today.

Form & Verdict

Poor strike-rate since 2019 and isn't totally solid on 2023 form; however, has performed well (won/second) in two attempts at Chester and therefore looks difficult to dismiss back here.

Sole 3yo in this field; has sound form at Chester, namely a success in last year's Lily Agnes (5f, good to soft) and close second in handicap (6f, good) on penultimate outing; interesting back here.
