Form & Verdict

Made all in maiden at Newmarket (1m2f, good; unraced on firmer) in May on reappearance, challenged but galloping on very stoutly and well on top; 1m4f had looked sure to suit for handicap debut at Royal Ascot (7-1) but he set a very strong pace and unsurprisingly folded; well worth another chance if that has not left its mark.

J: Rob Hornby

T: Ralph Beckett

Good-ground maiden winner who landed a six-runner handicap at Newmarket (1m4f, good to soft) in July; he was slowly away and failed to settle when well beaten in the Melrose at York (1m6f, good to firm) a fortnight ago, and is better than that, but it's hard to be confident in his claims today.

Form & Verdict

Had cheekpieces (twice) then a visor enlisted for last three outings and he ran creditably in all three, at 1m4f/14.5f; reverts to cheekpieces today; edging down the weights and should be competitive again but some of today's rivals may have more potential.

Can front-run; ended last season in July but on a high note, winning in good style at Catterick (1m4f, good); well beaten at Epsom (8-1) on reappearance 11 days ago, fading over the last 2f, but may well have needed that run.

This is his first run since last July (gelded since); however, back then he won in good style at Catterick (1m4f, good) and this 4yo could continue to progress; interesting contender on his comeback.

Form & Verdict

Absent for 570 days before this season; favourite when she surged back to form with a win over C&D (good to firm; probably acts on soft) 16 days ago, travelling strongly before knuckling down well; back up 8lb but may well be about to hit new heights.

Easy win at Newmarket in August prompted a 10lb rise, followed by a fair last of six at Doncaster (again 1m4f on soft) six weeks later; back down 1lb and worth a go at this longer trip; probably needs to improve for it.

Perhaps won a bit too well for her own good at Newmarket (1m4f, soft) with that walk in the park prompting a 10lb hit; however, despite her age, she remains unexposed with cut underfoot and has to be taken seriously.

Form & Verdict

Beaten a nose at Nottingham (1m2f, soft) in April on debut; disappointing behind Davideo on the Rowley course here (good) next time but ended well on top in novice at Newcastle (AW); all three runs were at 1m2f but he looks set for 1m4f and could be on an appealing mark for handicap debut.

Good ground saw his worst performance (second start) and he's unraced on firmer; won 1m2f novice at Newcastle (AW) in June and close fourth of six on handicap debut at Newmarket (1m4f) 12 days ago; respected on that form and he shaped as if he'd stay 1m6f.

Runner-up in this race two years ago off today's mark; now a 9yo but peak 2022 form reads well and previous campaigns suggest that he will have come on since last month's reappearance; case can be made.

Won a 1m2f maiden at Newcastle last May and further improvement when third under a penalty at Redcar (1m2f, good); dropped away tamely when stepped up to 1m4f for his handicap debut at Newmarket last July; absent since (has undergone gelding and wind operations) but it's potentially significant that connections have stuck with him; it'll be very interesting to see how he goes in the betting.

Well bred; promising third at Pontefract (1m2f, soft) in April, which he built on when winning a maiden at Newcastle (1m2f, AW) three weeks ago; the close second last time was a newcomer for same connections as today's rival Burglar; more to give and firmly in calculations.
