Form & Verdict

Went close in a C&D novice last April but he's not gone on from that and has struggled in his three runs (1m-1m2f) this season; mark continues to fall but he's now 0-9 and has a lot to prove.

Record of 0-6 but he's been placed in a couple of handicaps this season and didn't get the best of runs when second at Southwell (1m, Tapeta) last time; only 1lb higher and he could have a big part to play; hood added.

His breakthrough win at Windsor (1m2f, good to firm) had been coming and it was quite comfortable in the end; 3lb rise is fine but softer ground might not be, having disappointed on good to soft and twice withdrawn due to similar conditions.

Inconsistent 4yo with a record of 1-15 but he turned things around with a close second over 9.4f here last Monday; that was a bold bid on only his second run for this stable and he's big player if he can back that up.

Lightly raced 4yo who has form figures of 262113 in handicaps at this track and that latest third (9.4f) was a close call off this mark in April; couldn't justify favouritism back on turf at Pontefract last month but that was a fair effort and he looks interesting back at this track.
