Form & Verdict

Made all for a clearcut win in a Windsor novice (6f, good to firm) last June but he's not gone on from that and has been well held in two handicaps this season; mark is falling but he's now 1-6 and needs to raise his game at this new trip.

Form & Verdict

Ended last year with two AW wins at Kempton (7f/1m) and he started this season with a good second at Newbury (1m, good) last month; on same mark here but he didn't shine back at 7f last time and needs to step up again after that dip in form.

Successful in three consecutive starts here (7f/1m) between November 2022 and last December, but not so good in either outing over C&D so far this year; still 5lb higher than for his latest win and others are preferred.

Form & Verdict

Ex-Irish 5yo who missed 2022 and has finished down the field in his two runs for a new yard this season; on dangerous mark and wasn't beaten far at Beverley last time but this is a step back up in grade and others are more persuasive.

Form & Verdict

Prominent racer who won three times last year and has reached the frame in the last three of his four runs this season; 1lb lower than for his creditable fourth of 12 in a Class 2 at Sandown last time and he should give it another good shot.

3yo who improved his record to 2-4 when an impressive winner on his handicap/seasonal debut at Goodwood (1m, good to soft; blinkers added) last month; up 8lb but he still looks feasibly treated on that latest form and is open to more progress; big player.

Won handicap/seasonal debut in May in first-time blinkers and easily the best of his three runs since came when second at Ascot in first-time cheekpieces (kept since); kept to 1m this term and while not disgraced over 1m at Glorious Goodwood last time, he didn't shout that 1m2f is what's needed.

J: Dougie Costello

Good-ground 2yo maiden winner who scored on his handicap and seasonal debut over C&D (good to soft) in May, and bounced back from a lesser run on quick ground when runner-up at Ascot (1m, good to soft) last month in first-time cheekpieces (retained); his course form is a big plus and he's respected.

Form & Verdict

Has won three of her seven starts and she really kicked on again when finishing well to beat a clear second at Southwell (1m, Tapeta) two weeks ago; up 7lb in this tougher race but she could continue on the upgrade and is respected back on turf.

Can race freely and has been hit and miss this season; the return to soft ground should help, though, and better can be expected if she's ridden aggressively again in a race not overloaded with pace.

Form & Verdict

Two best efforts have come on the AW, including winning a Chelmsford novice (7f) last summer; may have needed the run when ninth of 14 on his handicap/seasonal debut at York (7f, good) last month, but he needs to find more progress on this step up to 1m.

Chelmsford novice winner (7f, AW) for Andrew Balding as a 2yo and ran well when second of nine at Newcastle (6f, AW) for Adrian Nicholls in January, but not built on it since including in both starts for this yard; plenty to prove back on turf.
