Form & Verdict

Has lacked consistency this term but ties in with Muscika on York running four days ago and holds a major chance if building on that effort; defied a 7lb higher mark in this race (good to firm) last year.

Two 6f wins last season, making all on heavy ground at Catterick in October off 2lb lower; having his first run at a bare 5f and likely he'll come on for this.

J: Joe Leavy

Has enjoyed a good campaign and gained compensation for being demoted to second at York (7f) when making all in the mud at Catterick (6f) last month; faded out of it at Doncaster a couple of weeks ago but he's capable of bouncing back; won here earlier in his career.

Form & Verdict

Has form figures of 5113 (all over 5f) for new yard, the wins gained at Ripon (good) and Chester (good to soft); probably did too much at the front end on latest outing; remains of interest and has clear possibilities if proving as effective back at 6f.

First five wins came at 5f but he was as good as ever when justifying support with his clearcut success over C&D 17 days ago; up 6lb but he still looks feasibly treated and should get a decent tow into this race; big player.

Strong traveller who's enjoyed a good season, winning three times on turf and going 19lb up the weights; continues in form but has been turned over at short prices a few times lately and there's little margin for error off this mark.

Form & Verdict

Has a good recent strike-rate, with four wins (mostly on AW) from last six races; creditable 1l fourth at Thirsk (6f, soft) last month on the return to turf; remains in form and may still have more progress in him; solid chance off unaltered mark.

Ended last season with a couple of underwhelming turf runs but he's well treated on his 2023 best and he can boast an AW record of 1311, two of the wins coming over C&D; returns from a break but he has to come into the reckoning.

C&D win on soft ground two years ago; added a fast-ground handicap at Catterick last summer off a 7lb higher mark; sharper for last month's return and he's the type to pop up sooner rather than later.

Beaten favourite in a division of this race 12 months ago; 5f on soft ground shouldn't be an issue and he's 5lb lower than for his Catterick win last summer; record fresh for this yard doesn't suggest this will be his day.

Suited by slow ground; 6f winner as a 2yo; however, raced mainly at 5f and not seen over this distance for two years; form has dipped in two runs since May win; not the percentage call.

Boasts a fine record on his second run of the season and last month's return to action (behind Zargun) offered hope he retained a good chunk of ability; place claims at least.

All four wins on slow ground, the most recent off 1lb higher at Nottingham (5f) last May; not in the same form afterwards but a revival looks possible on reappearance; market support would be encouraging.
