Form & Verdict

Won at Hamilton (5f, good to soft) in May and good runs in defeat under Lewis Chalkley there (5f, good to firm) the last twice; Hamilton brings out the best in him but he can also be effective elsewhere and he's a strong candidate if his good form continues on his first visit here.

Six-time winner who is now 4lb lower than when scoring at Hamilton last July; well held on his return at Doncaster four weeks ago but should be sharper today and this is a drop in class; has the rail to help and a much-improved showing could be on the cards.

He has run well on his seasonal return in each of the last three seasons and 5f on slow ground holds no terrors; 2lb lower than for his Haydock win last summer; interesting to see how he fares in the market.

Smart 2yo; faced a losing battle with the handicapper at three and had a quiet season for Paul Midgley last year; new yard able to exploit a lowly mark, with 5f wins at Ayr and Thirsk followed by a near miss at Haydock last month; came up short in a hot York sprint two weeks ago but this should be more to his taste.

Beat just three rivals when a narrow winner at Newmarket (5f, good) a fortnight ago but that made it two wins from her last four starts and she's just 2lb higher than last time; versatile ground-wise and respected.

Form & Verdict

Some fair runs this year and continues to drop down weights; however, hasn't really threatened the last twice and last five wins have come at Carlisle, Newcastle and Hamilton, so he may need a stiffer track than this.

Most wins have come over 5f and still does the majority of his racing at that trip, but he's fine with 6f; has come more than a stone down the weights in the past year and been expensive to follow, so others appeal more; returns from three months off.

Disappointing when back on AW at Wolverhampton last month but he had a wide draw and had been running really well in defeat previously; he can be in the mix if leaving last time behind.

Form & Verdict

Just one win from his last 31 starts and it remains to be seen if slow ground suits nowadays; however, he runs off the same mark as when winning at Ripon (5f, good) last September and did well when a close fifth at Chester (5f, good) last time, having been wider than ideal; not ruled out.
