Made no mistake when easily winning an uncompetitive Brighton maiden (5f, good to firm) on his reappearance last month, but has enjoyed no luck in both starts in handicaps since; likely has a bigger effort in him and respected.

Form & Verdict

Out of the frame in eight starts since winning a Windsor maiden (5f, good to firm) last summer; possible to forgive his effort over C&D last month when behind a couple of these (badly hampered), but no real excuses when in midfield at Epsom (5f, good to firm) last time (just behind Estate); others stronger.

Ready winner at Bath (extended 5f, good to firm) in July and ran at least as well at Brighton five weeks later; edging back up the weights but Ryan Moore is a positive booking; unlikely to be far away.

Form & Verdict

A few near misses before making it eighth-time lucky in a handicap at Salisbury (5f, good to firm; first-time tongue-tie) last month, but only sixth of 14 when sent off favourite at Epsom (5f, good to firm) last time; still 5lb above his winning mark and needs to bounce back.

Form & Verdict

Last summer's Chepstow novice win (6f, good to firm) didn't add up to much and he achieved much more when winning a Windsor handicap (5f, good; first-time cheekpieces) 11 days ago; 6lb higher, but still high on the list if the headgear works again.

Runner-up in the Super Sprint and Listed-placed as a 2yo; won an uncompetitive Wolverhampton novice (6f, AW) on her return in March and beaten less than 3l into fifth of 18 on handicap debut at York (5f, good to firm) five weeks ago; not sure this sharp 5f is ideal, though.

Form & Verdict

Rattled off a hat-trick over 6f/7f on the Lingfield AW late last year, but hasn't come anywhere near that form in five starts on turf including in his last two; hood now given a go, but not hard to have reservations.

J: Richard Kingscote

T: Stuart Williams

Untroubled to win his first three handicaps and now only 1lb higher than for the last of those; hasn't looked in the same form since being gelded in February, although soft ground was perhaps no help at Chester and the tongue-tie he tried there is swiftly removed.

Form & Verdict

Narrowly made a winning debut at Lingfield (5f, AW) last August, but beaten more than 20l in two starts at Salisbury (6f, good to firm) and on nursery debut at Southwell (6f, AW); returns from nine months off having undergone wind surgery and the market may indicate what is expected.

J: Lewis Edmunds

T: William Muir & Chris Grassick

Flopped at Chelmsford when last seen in November but had enjoyed a productive spell over 5f on AW prior to that, including a win at Chelmsford and two seconds at Lingfield; this hold-up performer is capable of bouncing back if fully primed after 162 days off.

Won an uncompetitive C&D handicap last month but had no excuses behind Mick's Spirit and Josies Kid here two weeks later; another creditable effort at Lingfield last time but more will be needed to defy this mark.
