Form & Verdict

Won at Hamilton (8.3f, good to soft) in May and he's been a fair fourth the next twice (1m, good to firm); his strong finish at Carlisle two starts ago suggests this step up in trip is well worth exploring; a possible.

Won two handicaps over shorter last season; left the impression he'd come on for his recent return to action at Ayr but his stamina isn't assured and he's still 3lb higher than for his last win.

Two wins last season, the latter off 3lb lower at Haydock (1m2f, good) in July; won't mind if there's some lingering juice in the ground here but has been absent since a disappointing hurdling debut in November.

Form & Verdict

Won at Hamilton (1m1f, good) in May and followed up there (1m1f, good to firm) 12 days later; another good run when fourth over this C&D (good to firm) last time and he could be thereabouts; also effective on slow ground.

Won three times over 1m/1m1f here last season on ground ranging from good to firm to soft; ran as though needing the race when third on Pontefract reappearance (1m, soft); likely to have come on for that run; major contender.

Runner-up two times (1m, heavy/good to firm) from his four starts; his pedigree firmly indicates he will be suited by this step up in trip on handicap debut and he's one to consider.

Won over C&D (good to firm) three weeks ago when dropped back in trip on her third handicap start; unproven on slow ground; did it nicely last time and a 3lb rise isn't harsh; respected.

Good record over C&D, winning three times and placed on her other two visits; no obvious excuse when only third here nine weeks ago though and needs a career best to defy this mark.

Form & Verdict

Has finished last on all three starts (7f/1m2f) and he could do with settling better than at Salisbury last time; however, he has shown some ability and makes his handicap debut off a modest mark; pedigree provides optimism he will improve and his stable is in excellent form; watch the betting.

Limited six-race maiden on the Flat (7f to 1m4f); signs that he could make a better hurdler when third at Wetherby (2m, good) and then raced too freely at Musselburgh (good to soft); his form is a good way beneath the requisite standard to win a race of this stature.

All five starts at 1m; has shown promise on various ground; fair efforts this season in first two handicaps, here and at Carlisle, and it's possible she will have more to offer now up in trip and in first-time headgear.

Regressive for Hugo Palmer last year, in various aids, and struggled badly following wind surgery; Jason Hart is a positive booking after six months off, albeit he's 0-8 for the yard, so she's worth a market check down in trip on Tapeta debut.

Promising third at Wolverhampton (8.6f, AW) in May on his second start but unable to reproduce that form the last twice, most recently on handicap debut at Wolverhampton (8.6f, AW); needs to raise his game.
