Form & Verdict

Never the same since a heavy hurdling fall 19 months ago and he's been beaten 10l or more in his four runs (1m4f-2m) this season; ran into a handicap blot when fourth at Kempton last time but he's now 0-12 since his sole win in 2021 and others are preferred; cheekpieces are removed and tongue-tie/visor go on.

All the better for this headgear combination and only narrowly failed in his hat-trick bid last time when third to Zillion; essentially 1lb lower with Connor Planas taking off 3lb; shortlisted.

Turned things around in new headgear when scoring over C&D (good) last month and he followed up with another narrow win over 1m6f here last time; only 2lb higher than for that success and he remains very well treated on his old form; big player in hat-trick bid.

Form & Verdict

23-race maiden but he went close at Windsor (11.4f) on his penultimate run and was a fair fourth of 15 in a classified event there last time; should be fine on this step back up in trip and he has each-way claims; has form on good to firm and soft.

Form & Verdict

Just two wins from 37 starts but she scored with plenty in hand at Yarmouth (1m6f, good to firm) last month before a fair third in a tactical race at Brighton (1m4f) last time; remains feasibly treated on her best form and she's a key player back up in trip.

Doubled her tally with emphatic success at Yarmouth (1m6f, good to firm) last month and has finished third twice since, more recently behind Dirham Emirati and Urban Forest over 1m5f here a fortnight ago; holds no secrets from the handicapper but probably won't be far away.

0-8 but she has shown promise, notably over C&D in June and at Leicester a fortnight later; not so good at Bath four weeks ago (upped to 1m5f) but this is a drop in grade and she's more appealing than many; unraced on slower than good.
