Form & Verdict

Acts on good to soft, unproven on soft; drew a blank in her first 14 races but in good form since upped in trip for new yard this year and broke her duck in good style in a 13-runner race at Catterick (2m, good) on latest outing; 6lb higher today and upped markedly in class but she needs respect after scoring with such authority.

Form & Verdict

Big improver switched to 1m6f/2m for handicaps on AW last autumn; another step forward when winning nine-runner apprentice race at Ayr (1m5f, good to soft) on reappearance this Monday and he can race off the same mark today; if he's in the same form just five days later (there was a seven-day gap between his two wins last year) he will have a good chance.

Made it 4-6 in handicaps when drawing 27l clear at Ffos Las (1m6f, soft; 10lb higher today) in August, making most in an amateurs' race; failed to replicate that form under a penalty on good ground one week later but he stays at least 2m and a return to soft ground would presumably be a big help.

Form & Verdict

Debut in November 2021 was his only win; his two placings this year were over 1m2f on good and he wasn't so hot over 1m3f/1m4f in the other three runs; combined with a sixth of seven when he tried 1m6f last November, there has to be unease about his prospects over 2m today.

Fair Flat form at 1m2f-2m last year; won a five-runner Catterick maiden (2m3f, soft) in December on second start over hurdles, but was disappointing on heavy ground at Southwell six weeks ago; wore cheekpieces for those last two starts; good shout if that latest run is forgiven.

Best on softer than good; three wins last year, none this term but he started the season in good form and ran respectably at Chester two weeks ago; there's a big question to answer, though, with this move up in trip.

Hat-trick on the Flat last summer, with an impressive win in this race as the final leg (8lb higher today); his 2023 action has all been over hurdles, including a 2m4f win in May but he was pulled up with an irregular heartbeat 25 days ago; his record on ground softer than good is patchy.

Underlined how well he goes in the mud with a 7l win at Thirsk (1m4f) last week and won by even further at Ripon (1m6f, heavy) on Thursday; effectively another 6lb higher if turned out again but it's offset by his rider's claim and he'll make a bold bid if coping with the quick turnaround.
