Form & Verdict

Won 2yo C&D maiden (good) last September and landed a handicap at Carlisle (7f, soft) a fortnight ago; travelled strongly last time and there can be optimism she will be similarly effective now back down to a sprint trip; this lightly raced 3yo is open to further improvement and has leading claims.

Three turf wins on stiff tracks when trained by the Johnstons, the latest of them off this mark at Pontefract last July; well held on her next four starts and again when 50-1 for her stable debut on New Year's Day (6f, Tapeta); this is weaker but she'll need a full revival to feature.

Two wins for Charlie Johnston last summer, impressing over 6f at Pontefract in July; disappointing after that win though and has changed hands for 55,000gns since last seen; new yard may well find the key to her but she's making her stable debut in a warm race.

Won two in a row in the first half of summer (7f/6f, soft/good) and could bounce back at some point, but she needs to produce more than she's managed on her last three starts.

Form & Verdict

Disappointing favourite at Ripon three weeks ago but suffered interference leaving the stalls and appeared to become unbalanced during the race; in top form previously, with wins at Thirsk (6f, heavy) and Ripon (6f, good to firm), and he could bounce back with a big performance.

Form & Verdict

Won four in a row last season (6f-1m, good-soft) and back on the scoresheet in big-field handicap at Cork (7f, soft to heavy) in May; down the field at the Curragh later that month but this Irish raider is still entitled to respect in view of his previously progressive profile; cheekpieces go on.

Needs to bounce back from a poor performance at Ripon three weeks ago but running really well prior to that with wins at Ripon (6f, soft) and Thirsk (6f, good); can be in the mix if leaving last time behind.

4 yo Gelding

OR: 89

Form & Verdict

Progressive last year after joining this yard and, although he hasn't been at his best on either run this season, his recent fifth at Windsor (6f, good to firm) was a step back in the right direction; may be able to build on it now in a visor (replacing cheekpieces); unproven on slow ground.

Overcame a wide trip to score at Kempton (AW) last week, benefiting from the return to this grade and belated step up to 7f; now 3-6 in Class 4 events and remains unexposed at this distance; 5lb penalty is largely offset by Frederick Larson's useful claim; respected.

OR: 100

Form & Verdict

9yo who hasn't been at his best this year and has finished midfield in big-field handicaps on his last three starts; however, he's dropped down the weights and this race is much easier than he's used to; 1-1 here and could go well if conditions suit (most of his best form is on good or faster).

Form & Verdict

Reappeared with big-field handicap win at Doncaster (6f, soft) in April; mixed form since but was denied a clear run at York (6f, good) two starts ago and he's on a competitive mark; not ruled out in first-time blinkers.
