He's had a good seven months on AW and he ran well off a lower turf mark when second of 17 at Beverley two weeks ago, keeping on well; more appealing than many.

C&D winner; a couple of good runs for new yard this season but he wasn't at his best at York eight days ago when well drawn; this looks quite a competitive race in which to try and bounce back.

Lightly-raced 4yo who missed 2022; retains a good chunk of ability and Tuesday's second at Beverley represented a career-best effort; worth another crack at 6f; best form on soft.

Last season's three turf wins came over 7f but he's effective over shorter, as evidenced by placed efforts over 5f and 6f this spring; not at his best at Musselburgh three weeks ago and drawn wide.

7lb lower than for his second in a big-field sprint at last season's July meeting at Newmarket (6f, good to firm); ran well at Newmarket on his reappearance in April and again at the same track on 2000 Guineas day; less good over 7f the last twice but he's the type to pop up soon; might need some luck from stall 1 given he's usually held up, though.

T: Richard Fahey

Only 1lb higher than for his win in a valuable 6f handicap at Kempton in November; ran well for second at Chelmsford on his penultimate start and easy to strike a line through his latest 7f run here when new tactics were deployed; style of racing means he needs a strong pace but that's quite possible here and he needs serious consideration.

Made all to win the corresponding event 12 months ago off a 4lb lower mark; dropped 8lb in four runs this season and his last two runs have both confirmed he retains a chunk of ability; should go well.

Over two years since his only win but he has run with credit in defeat this season, bumping into a couple of well-handicapped sorts at Haydock 11 days ago (6f, good; tongue-tied first time); 2lb lower today and shouldn't be underestimated.

Form & Verdict

Ex-French 4yo; ran well at Doncaster on his stable debut in April; below that level on his next three starts but he showed what he could do when sweeping down the outside to win a Chester handicap eight days ago (6f, good); still has some handicapping scope up 4lb.

He hasn't found his best form for Jim Goldie yet but there was more promise in a good race at Haydock two weeks ago, albeit he never looked like winning; may need a bit more weight off his back.

Form & Verdict

Has plenty of form over a stiff 6f and the fact he's been in such good form over 5f for Jim Goldie this year bodes well for his prospects back at this trip; failed in his hat-trick bid at Beverley two weeks ago but he ran into dead end after dead end on that occasion and is almost certainly still in top form; drawn widest but could go well if he's dropped in and ridden for luck.

Some good runs in the summer on final few starts for Ruth Carr and he won by a short-head on stable debut at Pontefract (6f, good to soft) in September; has won on the Wolverhampton Tapeta and, having shown good pace last time, this first crack at 5f is well worth a go; player.
