Form & Verdict

Won this race last year off 3lb lower on her only visit to Epsom, first leg of a double under Tyler Saunders; not so good this season but still managed a close second of six at Salisbury on penultimate start and ran fairly well on latest; wears headgear first time; considered.

Ended last season in career-best form, winning twice over 8.5f at Epsom (good to firm) in cheekpieces; will be fine over today's trip but needs to find even more to overcome current mark, and subsequent 229-day break may have checked her momentum.

Won last winter on his first two starts for this yard (1m2f at Lingfield, AW); not in peak form lately but had a ten-week absence before latest start, so perhaps he can build on that display.

All three wins came as 2yo; basically rather subdued this season but he's 8lb lower than on reappearance and one of his best runs last year came on his only appearance at this track; may be best on good or softer.

Form & Verdict

His only win in the last four years was over 7f here last August off 5lb lower; it's hard to make him the percentage call but he was beaten only just over 3l on both starts this term and this is his first go beyond 7f.

Unraced here; last two wins have been over 1m at Brighton, including justifying favouritism in clearcut fashion on latest start (Roundabout Silver third); on that display he is not ruled out by going back up 4lb.

Mostly comes from off the pace; never-nearer third of seven to Darvel on latest start was clearly his best show this season and came at Brighton, where he won another 1m handicap by a nose last September; player if he's working his way back to peak form.

His two runs (modest) at this track were a long time ago; seen mostly at Brighton, where he's won over 1m on his last three starts; back up another 5lb but he's on a roll and good 3lb claimer gets the leg up.
