Form & Verdict

Won twice (7f and 1m) last season; after returning over an inadequate 6f in May he showed his true colours with a ready success at Leicester 38 days ago (1m, good to firm), overcoming some trouble in running; 5lb higher today but still relatively low mileage; handles good ground and his one run on good to soft came over a trip too short.

Won two handicaps (7f and 1m) last summer but he wasn't in the same form in his final two runs in 2023; he'll need a career best to take this on his return from an eight-month layoff.

Won back to back at Leicester (1m, good to firm) and Newbury (7f, good) this summer but his run of good form came to a halt when only seventh at Brighton (1m, good) last time.

Form & Verdict

Useful in his youth and he has run with credit in two 6f handicaps for this yard after a 429-day absence; two runs over 7f in the past haven't been convincing but at least he's in good order.

Only 1lb higher than for his ready 6f win at Newbury in July; not so good since but 7f on Tapeta shouldn't pose a problem; lower draw would have been preferred though.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark at the fifth time of asking as a 2yo, responding well to first-time blinkers at Leicester in October (6f, heavy); went without headgear on her seasonal return in April and got behind before plugging on late (6f, soft); no surprise to see the blinkers back on and 7f looks worth exploring; Tuesday's rain will have helped.

Both her wins for Ed Walker came over 6f at Leicester on ground slower than good, the second off this mark last October; two runs for current stable have come over 6f here, not doing enough on either occasion to make her of significant interest today.

Two wins for Ed Walker, the latest when scoring at Leicester (6f, good to soft) in October; changed hands for 20,000gns soon afterwards; faded on her stable debut over C&D last month but she may have needed the run and still looks feasibly treated on her penultimate form; not ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Placed in his first three starts (7f-1m; slower than good) before an easy win in a Redcar maiden (1m, good; cheekpieces first time) in May; ran poorly on his handicap debut at Musselburgh last month (1m1f, good to firm) but this looks less demanding and he still has potential.
