Form & Verdict

Gelded and returned from nine months much improved with an easy win in handicap over C&D 15 days ago; this son of Havana Grey still looks ahead of his mark despite a 3lb rise, so can follow up.

J: Sam James

T: Grant Tuer

Unproven on softer than good; has form figures of 112113 in handicaps, the wins gained over 1m-1m2f on turf; ran well on AW last time; may not have stopped improving yet; major player, provided he stays this new trip.

J: Sam James

T: Grant Tuer

Made it 4-5 in handicaps on turf this season when seeing off five rivals over 1m2f at Newmarket three weeks ago; that was his first attempt over this trip and a 4lb rise is unlikely to prevent him making a bold bid if proving as effective on AW.

Modest Irish maiden who arrives in decent nick, sixth of 11 in 7f Roscommon handicap three weeks ago; can race off a 4lb lower mark so is no forlorn hope.

Good strike-rate in handicaps, particularly on AW for new yard this year, but latest effort suggests the assessor may now have his measure; he is 34lb higher than last turf appearance.

Ex-Irish gelding who has won his last three and it was never in much doubt when always well positioned at Newcastle four days ago (1m2f); penalised accordingly in a higher grade this time but something has evidently clicked.

Reliable sort who has finished runner-up in 7f handicaps at Carlisle and Doncaster this summer; should prove just as effective over this 1m trip and ought to be in the shake-up again.

Another solid effort for this yard when fourth over 7f here on Tuesday (trouble in running); can win races at this level and more appealing than many.

Still to get her head in front but she posted her best effort when second to Barrolo over C&D 15 days ago; meets that rival on 3lb better terms so can't be discounted.

Has taken her form up a notch since sent handicapping, rallying second of eight at Beverley (7.5f) 12 days ago; this slightly longer trip should yield further improvement so she must enter calculations.

Didn't really fire in her final two runs last year but she won back-to-back races at Newcastle (1m) and here (8.6f) in the autumn; looks interesting on that form and her last win was under Paddy Barlow; dangerous back from a short break.

Often leads but suited by patient tactics when winning at Newcastle and, with plenty to spare, at Wolverhampton (both about 1m); was stunned by 25-1 shot Finn Russell there since but lost little in defeat; first experience of Polytrack today but should be close between them again.

Maiden (0-10); runner-up in a first-time hood at Wolverhampton (9.5f) last May; has struggled since, including in three runs (9.5f-1m4f; headgear recently removed) in 2024; no reason to anticipate revival.
