Form & Verdict

Kicked off this campaign in good form and, having had an excuse in the Epsom Dash (stall opened late), he won at Chester (5f) a fortnight ago; has gone up just 2lb for last time and he's a possible player on AW debut.

Versatile ground-wise; thoroughly exposed and failed to get his head in front last season, though wasn't far away in 5f/6f handicaps at Newcastle and York (twice); not impossibly treated by any means, has won first time back in the past and he's 1-1 here.

His losing run is now up to 17 and he's the type who needs everything to drop right; however, he's gone close in his last two handicaps (5f, turf) and is fully effective here; there's a good chance he'll be thereabouts.

Coolmore cast-off who gained his first win for this yard when seeing off three rivals in a Windsor handicap in May (5f, good to firm); creditable effort in the Gosforth Park Cup seven weeks ago; conditions shouldn't be an issue but he's likely vulnerable to something lower down the weights.

Prominent racer who has run well in competitive 5f handicaps at York on his first two starts for this yard and there's a suspicion he's slightly better on Tapeta; showed strong form at Southwell and Wolverhampton towards end of last year and he won in 2020 on sole visit here; interesting.

Having dropped a long way in the weights he rediscovered his form this winter, winning 5f handicaps at Lingfield (twice) and Wolverhampton; wouldn't judge him too harshly on either of his last two runs and he ran well in the Dash over C&D last summer off this mark; not discounted.
