Form & Verdict

Suited by ground softer than good; unlucky third (might have won with clearer run) at Beverley on Tuesday when bidding for 5f hat-trick; still in good form and remains of interest; triple winner over 6f.

Form & Verdict

Needs slow ground; disappointing favourite at Carlisle last month but could well bounce back; has form figures of 21711 over this C&D, the most recent win on penultimate start when she beat Ramon Di Loria decisively; respected back here.

All wins (three last year) have been over 6f with give in the ground; creditable efforts this season when close third to Trilby (who is now 7lb worse off) over C&D (heavy) and when runner-up at Thirsk last time (6f, soft); should go well again.

Form & Verdict

Has gained three of her four wins over this C&D, the most recent in June; however, underperformed twice here last month, including in race won by Slainte Mhath, and has perhaps gone off the boil.

Stays 7f well enough but has done most of her winning over the stiff 6f at Hamilton; ended last season with two poor 6f runs and also disappointed over 5f this month; not the most obvious answer today.

Form & Verdict

Drops back in class having faced a tough task in the Scottish Stewards' Cup here two weeks ago; no match for Slainte Mhath over C&D in early July but an 8lb pull is a big help in the rematch; shortlisted.

Won over 7f on turf as a 4yo but seems more of a 5f specialist these days; not badly treated at present but he faded at Newcastle in January before making no serious inroads there two weeks ago; soundly beaten in both AW runs over 6f in 2022, so has a shade to prove back at this trip.

Ran on well to win a 5f handicap at Wolverhampton in December and he wasn't beaten far into fourth at Southwell ten days later; less good twice since, albeit he had plenty of use made of him into a headwind here on Friday night; not hopelessly treated and could revive.

Can hang left under pressure; returned to win the 6f handicap on this card 12 months ago (soft); even better later in the season when second to both Looking For Lynda and Vintage Clarets in big-field 5f handicaps at York before bagging one there in October; below best in his last run but that's forgiven; might well have more to offer as a 4yo.

Form & Verdict

Formerly a sprinter; largely consistent since upped to 7f/1m and doesn't appear to be crying out for this drop back in distance; the stiff 6f may help but this isn't his ideal grade; all wins in Class 6.
