Form & Verdict

Fully effective at this trip but he's been campaigned over 5f so far this year, winning a big-field event at Musselburgh on his return in April; two solid fourths have followed and he should be competitive once again.

Form & Verdict

Initial runs for this yard were blighted by slow starts; more proficient in that department in both runs this summer but he's still only managed two fifth placings; continues to drop in the weights but others look safer.

Form & Verdict

Took a while to put his head in front but he has made up for lost time, winning four of his last five starts (all over 6f, one on heavy turf and three on Tapeta); still has more to come but would have something prove if the rain doesn't arrive.

Form & Verdict

Threatened in novice/maiden company over the winter; improved efforts in handicaps, finishing third at Kempton in April (6f, AW) before a comfortable success at Ascot last month (6f, soft); possible he'll have quicker ground to deal with but he still has some potential.

Hasn't kicked on from his Ascot win in May (6f, soft) and he was doing all his best work late on behind Dashing Dick at Newmarket 15 days ago (6f); this sharper test doesn't look favourable.

All turf form on soft ground; opened his account at Ascot in May; below par at Thirsk (again over 6f) since but generally consistent otherwise and may bounce back; placed twice over 7f on AW.

Two wins last year, the latter off 1lb lower at Carlisle (7f, good to soft) in September; made low-key reappearance on AW last month but, after only ten runs, he remains open to further progress this season.

Fifth of six on his reappearance 12 days ago, never in contention; of interest on last season's best efforts but he needs to have come on a good deal for that return to action.
