Form & Verdict

All the better for going into handicaps, winning back-to-back at Ripon (1m) before just coming up short dropped to 7f at Catterick; nudged up another 2lb for that and, while Archie Young claims 7lb this time, a change of jockey casts some doubts.

Unproven on softer than good; has form figures of 112113 in handicaps, the wins gained over 1m-1m2f on turf; ran well on AW last time; may not have stopped improving yet; major player, provided he stays this new trip.

J: Sam James

T: Grant Tuer

Made it 4-5 in handicaps on turf this season when seeing off five rivals over 1m2f at Newmarket three weeks ago; that was his first attempt over this trip and a 4lb rise is unlikely to prevent him making a bold bid if proving as effective on AW.

Form & Verdict

First win at the 14th attempt when beating an in-form rival over 1m here three weeks ago (good to firm); 4lb rise is fine (has threatened off higher) and big chance.

Free-going gelding; made all for sole win over 1m on fast turf at Musselburgh in July, when 3lb lower; went close back there (1m1f; same tactics) next time; well below that level on his last four starts but not written off.

3 yo Gelding

OR: 61

Form & Verdict

Seemingly helped by first-time tongue-tie when making all to open account over 1m on Newcastle AW in May; ran okay next time Wolverhampton and unwise to read too much into his non-completion over hurdles last month; bit to prove on turf and has an inexperienced jockey up top this time.

Front-runner whose form can be mixed, but he made all here (1m) last May and has been a close second over today's C&D; capable of a bold bid if fully tuned up for his reappearance.

Won over a mile at this venue and has also run well over 1m2f here; not guaranteed on pedigree to stay this extra distance, though races over this trip around here are rarely run at a strong gallop.

Placed in two of her four handicaps without really threatening a breakthrough success; best form to date has been over 7f so something to prove now sent beyond a mile for the first time.

Lightly raced 3yo who showed promise here in the spring; perhaps unsuited by heavy ground at Ayr two starts ago and by the first-time blinkers over this C&D last Tuesday (no headgear today); however, she's hard to fancy after those heavy defeats.

She has failed to progress and was tailed off at Musselburgh in July; however, the cheekpieces adopted that day are left off, she's had a break since, and there are some firm pointers in her pedigree that this lightly raced 3yo could be suited by today's first encounter with testing ground.
