Form & Verdict

Consistent rather than progressive maiden; strong favourite for a Lingfield handicap ten days ago (7f) but he pulled far too hard early and could only manage second; returns to sprinting and still has time to do better.

Form & Verdict

Prolific winner who has added another two wins to his tally this year, more recently over 6f at Goodwood last month (off 5lb lower); not so good at Chepstow one week later but he's not handicapped out of things and his yard is going along nicely.

J: Oliver Searle

T: Rod Millman

Multiple winner, the latest of them at Chelmsford (7f) last month; runner-up at Southwell (6f) next time and not beaten far despite only finishing sixth at Southwell 17 days ago (winner and third have won since); has four course wins on his record and he's likely to make another bold bid.

Form & Verdict

Smart form in his youth but 2022 was a disappointing campaign; back to form with a bang when powering clear in the closing stages at Leicester 15 days ago (6f, good to firm); 8lb higher in a stronger race but the Leicester win was backed up by the Topspeed figure and he still has plenty of handicapping scope given his former glory.

Capitalised on some help from the handicapper when running away with a 6f handicap at Leicester in June (good to firm); fair efforts but not kicked on since; handles good to soft but something to prove if rain arrives.

Not as good as he was but capitalised on a big drop down the weights when running away with a 6f handicap at Leicester in June; beaten fair and square off his revised mark eight weeks ago; the break may have done him good but others make more appeal.

Form & Verdict

Promise as a 2yo but she's looked an improved performer this year, following a Nottingham second with a ready Yarmouth win 17 days ago (6f, good to firm); can do better and she's making her handicap debut off a realistic mark; hood worn for all five starts now left off.

Ready winner of a C&D fillies' maiden in June; similar form at Newmarket next time but her form dipped when upped to 7f a fortnight ago (sent off favourite); career best needed to come out on top.

Form & Verdict

C&D record reads 1316; yet to find her best in three runs for her new stable this season and she may prove vulnerable once again.
