Form & Verdict

Both wins here (5f-6f); keeping good form for the grade in recent weeks; was doing solid late work when chasing home Show Compassion over 6f here latest; that might just be his optimum trip nowadays but he still rates as a leading contender.

All three wins here (5f/6f) and 6lb lower than for the most recent last summer, but latest efforts raise doubts as to whether he is running well enough to take advantage.

Form & Verdict

Poor win record (1-30); has found the frame on her last three visits to Wolverhampton (6f) though, including when a staying-on third to a stablemate of Laertes last week; dropping back in trip is a slight worry, but she can be competitive in a race of this nature.

Some fair efforts at Wolverhampton this summer and she's won here; place possibilities but she has a poor strike-rate (1-33) and was only fifth of seven at Wolverhampton ten days ago.

Still seeking a first win (0-9) and finished down the field on first attempt over 5f at Beverley (soft; 11-2) last week; runner-up at Chelmsford (6f) in May though, so switching back to the AW could assist; headgear removed.

12-race maiden; has bits of encouraging form and this is just his third run for Mick Appleby, but he's not proven over this far and looks opposable on balance; well beaten in his two runs with a visor for former yard and now tries cheekpieces.

Form & Verdict

Maiden (0-10); was making his stable debut when meeting trouble, before finishing off strongly over C&D (third, 25-1) in April; beaten favourite but far from disgraced back from a three-month break here (6f) a fortnight ago; return to 5f a plus, unlike the widest draw.

Missed a lot of his career but has been threatening on Tapeta since his return, flattening out over 6f as favourite before a fair effort from a wide stall last time; these conditions are an unknown, however.

Not many positives to be gleaned from his recent Chester efforts but he's slipped down the weights accordingly, and returns to a lesser grade; twice runner-up over C&D this year, so shouldn't be completely dismissed.
