Form & Verdict

Won three of his last four starts; the last two wins were at Nottingham (5f, good to firm) and Lingfield (5f, AW; ridden by 5lb claimer) two days later; has had 11-day break this time; also up 6lb since latest start but he's shown his best form for ages and has just four rivals.

Admirable 8yo who has won four of his last five starts and was as good as ever when making all for a clearcut win at Leicester (5f, good to firm) 11 days ago; a 6lb rise for that success looks fair and he's a big player again in his bid for a four-timer.

Form & Verdict

Won first four races of 2021, with this one the second leg; the losing sequence has added up since but he's down the weights with fairly regular minor honours, including when second at Goodwood last week; that was over 6f and that trip possibly suits him better nowadays but he's not dismissed.

J: Molly Gunn

T: Tony Carroll

Won four in a row in the summer of 2021 (including back from a break) but he's drawn a blank since; ended 2023 with a string of good runs but his best turf form has come on a faster surface.

Form & Verdict

Two wins from the front last month, over 6f at Ayr and 5f at Ripon; form dipped in hat-trick bid at Redcar but close fourth at Catterick three days later; should go well.

W: 9st 9lb

5 yo Gelding

OR: 67

Form & Verdict

5-29 on AW, compared to 0-14 on turf and he's rarely seen on grass these days but one such occasion was latest start when he took second of six at Brighton (6f, firm); not top of the list but has to be considered.

Form & Verdict

Previously with Mark Usher and won three times last summer; ground softer than good has appeared ideal but she was soundly beaten on soft here for new yard seven weeks ago following seven months off, denting a good course record; perhaps she'll be a lot straighter this time but she's unraced on good to firm for over two years.
