OR: 87

Form & Verdict

Often front-runner; two of his wins at Perth, including in this race last year (soon had big lead); has a 7lb lower mark today (even with 6lb out of the handicap) having failed to repeat the form last autumn onwards, seeing plenty of recent action and not that far away but he needs to step up on those efforts; his one good piece of soft-ground form was a long time ago.

Form & Verdict

Won a bumper on soft; also obliged on hurdles debut (good to soft) next time and he was back to that form when close second in handicap at Market Rasen (2m4f, good) on latest outing; good chance on that.

J: Bradley Harris

T: Anthony Charlton

No win since January 2022 but a very solid sequence this season under Bradley Harris, with last six starts including four seconds; wore cheekpieces last three outings; stayed on well for a close third in the Warwick qualifier four weeks ago but he was no match for Goshhowposh on the run-in at Wincanton time before and a 2lb swing should not be enough to turn the tables.

J: Bradley Harris

T: Anthony Charlton

Runner-up three times in a row this autumn and also ran creditably when upped to 2m7f/3m on last two outings, second again at Wincanton on latest; ridden in all those five races by Bradley Harris; wore cheekpieces last two; while needing respect for consistency, some improvement is needed for a first handicap win.

Form & Verdict

Frequent runner here, including for his only two wins; rallied to prevail close home over C&D (good) in May but ran a shocker back here three weeks ago; others appeal more at the weights even if he is back to his best and he has a bit more to prove if the ground is worse than good to soft.

Both wins were over 2m4f here; several good runs over 3m, and although not at his best behind The Longest Day last time, could bounce back.

Form & Verdict

Sole win (26 races) came in a C&D handicap on soft last September off 2lb lower; off 287 days before unseating well before push came to shove in a four-runner C&D handicap (16-1) ten days ago; needs peak form but stays 3m, so should be keeping on if he's tuned up.

Won over hurdles at Perth (2m4f, soft) last September but he's unseated and refused to race at that track in his two assignments this summer; overall record now stands at 1-27 and he has plenty to prove back on the Flat.
