Form & Verdict

Often leads; most recent win over C&D in January 2022; much lower in the weights now after a spell of lesser efforts but he wasn't far away over 7f here twice in May and a soft-ground defeat on Saturday is best ignored; shouldn't be far away.

Multiple AW winner, who is 0-16 on turf but he returned to this sphere with an eyecatching fourth over C&D (good) 11 days ago; was well backed in that race and has possibilities if he can find some extra spark.

Made all for 6f maiden win at Chelmsford in December; mixed in handicaps since but he ran well enough returned to front-running over 7f at Newcastle last time and this sharper test seems likely to suit better.

Won 6f turf maiden in Ireland as 2yo; found it hard going in handicaps since but down a long way in the weights and his latest third, when upped to 1m at Chelmsford 16 days ago, was better; not ruled out back at 7f.

Four-time winner here (three over this trip) who ended a long losing run when landing an amateur riders' event at Newcastle (6f, Tapeta) last time; 5lb higher and wide draw not ideal, but is usually dropped out anyway so could figure if they go quick enough up front; stable also runs Yaahobby.

His last win was 13 months ago but he's a Tapeta specialist who has run several good races this year including a near miss over C&D four runs back; should get a decent tow into this race and has possibilities if he gets the breaks.

Lightly raced; suited by the return to 7f on last three starts, making most for wins at Southwell and over C&D for the two most recent ones (the latest for new yard after an absence); up just 2lb and has a lowly mark to exploit so has a fair amount going for him.

Has been making the running, successfully at Yarmouth in June (7f); beaten a long way out there since but the good to soft ground could have been to blame; of more interest running in his first 7f AW handicap since winning one at Southwell in February 2022.
