Front-runner; two Redcar wins last season; retains ability, as seen when third of 12 at Doncaster in April (6f, soft); should be seen in a better light back on a quicker surface.

All four wins have been at 5f but she was a creditable second behind Dazy Mazy over this trip at Doncaster 13 days ago; has a 6lb swing in the weights with her old rival and she should be in the mix again; has won on soft and fast ground.

Form & Verdict

Ages since his last win but he is on a dangerous mark and this is the weakest handicap he's ever contested; not beaten far behind subsequent Dash winner Navello over C&D last month (first-time cheekpieces, retained); any rain would enhance his chance.

Form & Verdict

Career punctuated by some long absences; he has run to a similar level in four starts this summer but he will need to pull out more if he's to capitalise on his drop in the weights.

J: Archie Young

T: Grant Tuer

Had a blip at Thirsk last month but generally reliable and was back on song with a creditable fourth of 12 at Newcastle (6f, AW) last time; this return to soft ground is no problem and his last run at 7f resulted in a strong-finishing second on Tapeta three runs back; shortlisted.

Both wins have been over 6f on the AW; has some fair form on turf; good second on first try at this trip at Newcastle last time despite a tardy start (Kats Bob third, Kalganov fifth); a possible.

1lb lower than for his Doncaster win last September (5.6f, good to soft); last two runs, both here on good or faster, have been satisfactory without suggesting he was primed to strike; cheekpieces now tried.

9st 6lb

J: David Nolan

T: Paul Midgley

Notched fourth turf win when arriving late at Redcar (5f) in September; shouldn't be unduly troubled by going back up 5lb, although AW prowess (0-2) is a concern on return from a 212-day absence; stablemate of Elzaal.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark for the year when readily seeing off five rivals at Ayr last week (5f, good to firm); that effort backed up by the clock and he's greatly respected off what is effectively just a 4lb higher mark.

Form & Verdict

Did well on AW for David Brown in late 2022; two runs for current yard, faring better when second of six at Pontefract last week (Jarvis fourth); 0-18 on turf but should be up to winning at this level and his rider takes off a useful 7lb.

Ex-Irish 4yo; down to a good mark and clear promise at Newcastle on last month's reappearance; less good at Pontefract last week though and others are more appealing.
