Form & Verdict

4yo who has turned things around with good placed efforts in blinkers at Salisbury (good to soft) and Brighton (good to firm) in his last two starts; was strong at the finish over 1m4f in both of those runs and he looks interesting on this step back up in trip.

Not proven at this track but the best of his six AW runs came on latest attempt when winning a five-runner race on Wolverhampton Tapeta (1m6f) in July; back to that form when close third at Bath (1m6f) on latest outing; big player if that form is reproduced.

Won over this far at Wolverhampton and didn't run too badly back over 1m4f at Brighton when lacking the gears to land a blow; could go well.

Well treated on his AW win at Chelmsford (extended 1m5f) last July but he's struggled since then and has been beaten 13l or more in his last six starts; has a lot to prove.

J: George Rooke

T: Richard Hughes

Won twice on yielding ground in Ireland in 2021 and once on AW last July; soundly beaten this term over 1m2f, 1m4f and 1m6f but he's well handicapped if back to the sort of form he showed on several occasions last summer.

Form & Verdict

Dual-purpose performer who recorded her fourth Flat win when making all in an apprentice handicap at Bath (2m1f, firm) last month; that was a five-runner race but she's only 2lb higher here and should make another bold bid back in trip; key player.

Form & Verdict

Finished close up off 1lb higher at Salisbury (1m6f, good to soft) last September but he has a mixed record over hurdles this year and was well held back on the Flat at Newbury (1m2f) last month; takes a big step back up in trip but he's not easy to predict and others are preferred.
