Form & Verdict

Ended last season with emphatic 1m AW win in September but began 2023 with two underwhelming runs in UAE (turf/dirt) and returns from 173-day absence with something to prove; has form on ground ranging from good to firm to soft; cheekpieces (worn for last four runs) left off here.

Habitual front-runner who scored off 2lb higher over C&D (good to firm) last summer; has become very inconsistent, though, and was last of six here on latest outing in June; handles good to soft/soft ground; others appeal more.

Form & Verdict

Well down the field when making handicap debut at Royal Ascot but last month's fourth of 12 at Newmarket (1m, good) was a pleasing effort; ideally needs to learn to settle better but ought to cope with the forecast rain (2yo winner on soft ground) and should still have potential.

Built upon previous promise when back on soft ground and winning a 15-runner handicap over C&D last September; well beaten in the Cambridgeshire a fortnight later but on quick going; gelded since; this lightly raced 4yo is back on testing ground for his reappearance and could play a leading role.

Form & Verdict

Led close home at Hamilton (8.3f, soft) last month, his second win over that C&D this season; competes off career-high mark here but the forecast rain will be very much in his favour and he has each-way claims at least in current mood.

Form & Verdict

Lost out only by a neck in 22-runner Spring Mile at Doncaster (1m, heavy) in April and last month's Newmarket third (1m, good to firm) was another creditable effort; evidently well suited by a straight mile and versatile regarding ground; can make his presence felt.

Verdict

The one with most potential is the 3yo, LIBERTY LANE (nap), who kept on well for a creditable fourth at Newmarket recently and, if his impressive 2yo debut on soft ground is a guide, will be suited by the forecast rain here. Titian, who also comes here after a good effort at Newmarket, is second choice ahead of the selection’s stablemate Liamarty Dreams.[Chris Wilson]
