Form & Verdict

He ran with some promise on his racecourse debut on the Rowley course (7f, good to soft) in April; well beaten three times since, including his handicap debut at Haydock three weeks ago; dropped 5lb and should come good at some point; tongue tied for the first time; check betting.

All or nothing in his first season, going close over C&D off 2lb lower before tailed off (eased) on heavy ground latterly; worth tracking in the market back from seven months off.

Well backed when making a winning handicap debut at Southwell in February (7f); absent since a low-key run at Bath on Good Friday (1m, soft); still has some potential; non-runner at Sandown due to going on Wednesday (good, good to firm in places).

In good form since returned to the AW late last year, winning on Tapeta at Wolverhampton (8.6f) and Southwell (1m) and going close in his last two starts, including when beaten a head over C&D in January; 69-day absence not a problem and a player.

Form & Verdict

Two AW wins in January; beaten favourite but ran well on her first two turf runs this summer and her latest third at Yarmouth was another solid display (1m, good to soft); still has a bit of potential and that separates her from many of her rivals.

Largely consistent since beginning this year with two 1m Polytrack wins (one here) and lost out only narrowly after enduring a wide trip at Kempton three weeks ago; has to take a 3lb rise on the chin but probably won't be far away.

Much better known for his AW exploits but won over C&D in 2022; has something to prove after some below-par AW runs but returns to turf on a good mark and could be very dangerous in this company.

Wouldn't score highly for consistency and he's still seeking his first win but the pick of his efforts gives him sound claims off this mark; each-way shout.

Two wins over further on AW for Simon Pearce this year; fully effective on turf too, as when a close third here (1m, good to firm) on last month's stable debut; not so good at Yarmouth four weeks ago but can't discount completely.
