Form & Verdict

Plenty of good efforts since her Southwell win (6f, AW) in December and she doubled her tally with a comfortable success in a big field at Hamilton (6f, good to soft) last Thursday; up 6lb but that was a personal best and she's a big player again.

Form & Verdict

Just one win from his 20 runs on turf but he returned to form with a good third at Doncaster (6f, good; first-time visor) last Friday; ran into some trouble at a crucial stage in that race and he's an interesting contender off same mark.

Form & Verdict

Ended long losing run off a much-reduced mark at Ripon (5f, good to firm) last month but he's not fired in two runs since then; handles most ground and this step back up in trip is no problem but he has some questions to answer again.

Both wins have come over 5f at Hamilton (good to soft/soft) and latest was 11 months ago; has finished third in three of his four runs this season but was well held in a small field at Hamilton (6f, good) last time and and he's still 2lb higher than for last success; others preferred.

Generally reliable on AW and had form figures of 444124 during the winter but he struggled back on turf at Hamilton (6f, good to soft) last week; may have needed that after a break but he still has something to prove in this sphere and this is a step back up in grade.

Form & Verdict

His last win was in April 2021 but he's run some good races off a sliding mark this year including a front-running third at Lingfield (7f, AW) two weeks ago; should be unfazed by this return to sprinting and he could make a bold bid.
