Form & Verdict

Won two in a row here (6f/5f, good) in May and bounced back from lesser run at Redcar when going close over this C&D (good) last month; also effective on slow ground and he's a strong contender at his favourite track.

Versatile trip-wise having been placed at up to 1m5f, while his latest win came over 6f here in December; rather in and out since and he failed to beat a rival at Newcastle (7f, Tapeta) six days ago; others safer.

Form & Verdict

Well-beaten fifth of seven on handicap debut at Leicester (6f, good to firm) three weeks ago but showed pace, so could be suited by this first crack at 5f, and the easier ground may also help as she displayed promise on good to soft and good going on her first two outings.

Acts on soft; had just three runs in 5f handicaps, finishing second in the first two and making all in good style in an amateur jockeys' race at Catterick (good to soft) on latest turf start; up 6lb and things didn't pan out on AW since but of interest back on turf.

Form & Verdict

His losing run is up to 12 but this prominent racer ran pretty well in defeat on his four starts last month (5f, good to firm/good to soft) and there's every chance he'll be thereabouts.

Three 5f turf wins last season, the latest off a 4lb lower mark in September; last month's return on the AW should have sharpened him up and he's one to consider.

Form & Verdict

8yo whose losing sequence goes back 19 races to May 2022; however, he's run some good races in defeat of late and this three-time course winner might not be far away; declared 6.52 Carlisle Saturday.

J: Cam Hardie

Went very close over C&D (good) last August and won at Redcar (5f, heavy) in October; this 9yo can be in the shake-up if fully tuned up, but previous reappearance evidence suggests he'll improve for the run.

Tricky to win with in recent years but he did get up late in a 5f handicap at Redcar last month (heavy); 0-10 on AW and others appeal more.

Runner-up at Pontefract (5f, good to soft) on reappearance and won at Nottingham (5f, soft) next time; only sixth over C&D (good) a fortnight ago but it will be a major plus today if he is back on slow ground.

Boasts a fine record on his second run of the season and last month's return to action (behind Zargun) offered hope he retained a good chunk of ability; place claims at least.

All four wins on slow ground, the most recent off 1lb higher at Nottingham (5f) last May; not in the same form afterwards but a revival looks possible on reappearance; market support would be encouraging.

Three-time turf winner (good/good to firm) who went very close at Newcastle (5f, AW) in January but has finished down the field on his three runs since; unproven on slow ground; needs to get back on track.
