Form & Verdict

Allotted lowly BHA mark of 38 after finishing well down the field in three AW races in February/March (7f-1m) but is a possible improver in handicaps; well worth keeping an eye in in the betting.

Some respectable AW efforts of late but best form on turf, when winning at Salisbury (1m2f, soft) last summer and close second at Windsor (1m3f, good); now 6lb lower than the latter run but needs to show the return to 1m is what's wanted.

Form & Verdict

Doesn't help himself by racing too freely and remains a maiden after nine runs but came second three times last month (8.3f-1m2f, good to firm) and is likely to be right in the thick of things again here; swaps cheekpieces for first-time visor; handles good to soft, unraced on anything slower.

Ten-race maiden who can take a strong hold but he's finished runner-up in last four starts and he ran into a handicap blot at Salisbury (1m2f, soft; first-time visor) last Saturday; was no match for the winner in that race but he pulled clear of the third and still looks on a workable mark; key player.

Did not show a great deal in her three qualifying races in May/June (8.3f-1m2f) and but has a very good pedigree and ought to be much more competitive in this low-grade handicap.

Bred to be a black-type performer but she hasn't pulled up any trees in five starts, albeit her latest fourth of 13 at Bath (1m2f, good) wasn't too bad; connections will be keen to find a race for her given her paddock value and cheekpieces go on for the first time; contender.

12-race maiden who has been out of form for Rebecca Menzies this season (three runs), and was particularly disappointing when tried over 1m6f ten days ago; sports first-time blinkers for today's stable debut; needs to have been revitalised by the recent change of scenery; versatile ground-wise.

Didn't quite get home when fourth of seven on recent handicap/turf debut at Bath (1m2f, firm), having raced too freely, but that was her first run since January and she wasn't given a hard time in the final furlong; can go well here if that outing has brought her on.
