Form & Verdict

Has thrived for Tristan Davidson, notching convincing wins over 5f at Ripon (good) and Chester (good to soft) in June; remained in form since, running particularly well when second of 17 at York (5f, good) last Saturday; nudged up another 3lb but still much respected.

First five wins came at 5f but he was as good as ever when justifying support with his clearcut success over C&D 17 days ago; up 6lb but he still looks feasibly treated and should get a decent tow into this race; big player.

Strong traveller who's enjoyed a good season, winning three times on turf and going 19lb up the weights; continues in form but has been turned over at short prices a few times lately and there's little margin for error off this mark.

Yet to add to his two 2yo wins and the excuses are starting to stack up, never a serious threat when sixth of 16 over 6f at York (good to soft) eight days ago; a first-time visor needs to put an edge on him.

Two big runs in defeat at Thirsk (5f, soft/good) in August in a visor before finishing down the field in first-time blinkers at Wolverhampton (6f, AW) last time; the blinkers are retained but he failed to settle last time and this drop back in distance could be a firm plus; not ruled out.

Still to add to his two 2yo wins but he has turned in a string of good runs this season, latterly finishing a close third of 16 at Thirsk last month; visor worn the last twice now replaced by new blinkers; handicapped to win but drawn wide on this rare 6f run.

Front-runner who won a 5f novice on soft last autumn; started 2023 with creditable fourths on soft ground over C&D and at Chester but he lacked end product when only fifth of 13 over an extended 5f at York (good to soft) last Friday.

Sharp 5f on slow ground seems to suit him well and he ran out a ready winner over C&D four weeks ago; 4lb rise not beyond him but he's likely to face competition up front and the widest draw isn't ideal.
