Form & Verdict

Defied an 11lb higher mark at Doncaster (7f, soft) in October 2021 but he's 0-10 since and has not made a serious impact in his five runs this year; needs to significantly raise his game back up in trip.

Back to winning ways over C&D (soft) last month and followed up at Thirsk (1m, soft); his last four wins have come on soft ground but he showed solid form on good going last year and this 8yo could go well once more.

Her form has been up and down this season but she finished well when runner-up in a Class 4 event at Beverley (8.4f, good to soft) two weeks ago; on same mark here and has possibilities if she can back that up; one of three runners for Tim Easterby.

Four-time turf winner who has a solid record this season and his latest third at Newcastle (1m2f, AW) was behind a major improver in a Class 3 event; now drops back in trip but he's very effective on slow ground and could be a big factor if this sets up for his closing style.

Hard to predict and was tailed off at Pontefract last time but he's had a couple of close calls this season and this 8yo has a striking record of 13112 over this C&D; could bounce back with a big run back at this track and he won't mind what the weather does; stablemate of Young Fire.

Three-time C&D winner, including on soft; won a Newcastle handicap in November off 1lb higher; beaten 12l in the Spring Mile on last month's return to turf but he ran into some dead ends and was keeping on at the finish; this is weaker and he's one to consider with a good apprentice booked.

Front-runner who was knocking on the door at Redcar (1m, good) and Newcastle (1m, AW) in his first two runs this season and he had a tough draw when down the field in a Class 2 at Sandown last time; looks interesting on this drop back in grade and he's versatile ground-wise.

Ideally suited by good or slower ground but his four wins have been at 6f/7f and latest was off 3lb lower at Catterick last October; that was under positive tactics but he's faded in his last two starts and looks vulnerable again on this step back up in trip.
