Form & Verdict

All three wins on AW and latest was in January 2021; thrown in, even so, judged on most form last summer and autumn, but he looked on the downgrade in his five runs in December/January; interesting to see whether the market moves predict a revival.

Capitalised on some help from the handicapper when running away with a 6f handicap at Leicester in June (good to firm); fair efforts but not kicked on since; handles good to soft but something to prove if rain arrives.

Not as good as he was but capitalised on a big drop down the weights when running away with a 6f handicap at Leicester in June; beaten fair and square off his revised mark eight weeks ago; the break may have done him good but others make more appeal.

Form & Verdict

Debut for this yard in January is his sole win from 13 races; rather up and down since but he's finished second at Haydock (good) and Lingfield (good to firm) on two of his last three starts, so can still be a player.

Form & Verdict

7-47 overall, with last season's four wins all on AW; performances this February/March were not of quite the same order but he's edging down the weights and his turf form last year was comparable to AW; chance if he's regained the spark after three months off; wore blinkers once in 2020 and they're now back instead of usual cheekpieces.

Two Lingfield wins this winter and she's run well over C&D on her last two starts, chasing home May Remain last month before a close fourth (in front of May Remain) 18 days ago; should be bang there once again.

In fine form; all four wins at 6f on Polytrack but she ran close to her best when going down narrowly to May Remain over C&D 12 days ago and there again shouldn't be much at all between them; bang there.

Form & Verdict

4yo who showed improved form when placed in two maidens and a novice, easily best of it when second at Ayr (6f, good) in May; handicap debut 12 days ago was a flop but that was 7f and she raced freely; could be worth another chance now back at 6f.

0-11 but placed a few times, including when third of ten over C&D last time (just behind Universal Grace); down another 1lb, but she is a hold-up horse and those tactics aren't easy to execute over the minimum trip here.

Has not gone on from a useful 6f effort on Lingfield AW in December but down weights and the return to Polytrack could suit after getting quite badly hampered over 5f at Yarmouth in July; not dismissed.

Form & Verdict

Tried in cheekpieces and dropped from 7f to 6f for eight-runner race at Windsor (good to firm) 12 days ago and it did the trick as he got up close home by a neck; up 4lb since but that was just his second handicap, so there's a good chance he has further improvement in him for in-form yard.

Sole success came at Windsor (6f, good to firm; first-time cheekpieces) in June but he looked unlucky not to finish closer when sixth of 11 at Newcastle (7f, Tapeta; first-time blinkers) last month; visor returns and he could make an impact granted a smoother passage.

Off the mark in a 6f handicap at Windsor in June (cheekpieces for the first time); one good run (visored first time) and two poor efforts have followed; hopes pinned on the latest change of headgear having a positive effect.
