Three wins last year, the latest in a Group 3 at Newbury (5f, good) in September; not disgraced in the Temple Stakes and King's Stand after reappearing and was hampered at the start when around 2l behind Ehraz back at Newbury (6f, good to soft) 15 days ago, but he is still to prove his stamina over this trip.

High class at 5f on his day for Roger Varian and looked destined for bigger things when he sped past his rivals in a Sandown Listed race (good) in 2022; that didn't quite happen but he ended last season with a Chester win on soft and there was plenty to like about his reappearance in a Group 3 here (6f, good) for new yard 16 days ago; strong claims back at 5f.

Form & Verdict

Won three times last autumn including a Listed race at Doncaster (6f, heavy); twice runner-up at a similar level this year, including here (7f, soft) last month where she looked unlucky not to win; needs to bounce back from a lesser effort at Goodwood (7f, soft) on Wednesday but would be a player if she can, especially should the ground soften further.

Ended 2022 on a high and she's continued the good work, albeit without winning, this season; runner-up three times in Listed events and also ran well in the Ayr Gold Cup when racing nearest the far rail; handles all ground but the recent rain is an obvious positive.

Kept useful company last year, as when sixth of the 20 runners in the Commonwealth Cup; gelded in the autumn and lightly raced this term, but has run with credit in both starts as when beaten less than 2l into fifth of ten in a Group 3 at Newbury (6f, good to soft; first-time blinkers) 15 days ago; has the form to play a part from the inside stall, but may not want too much rain.

Smart sort who was having his first outing in handicap company when a very good third of 17 at York's Ebor meeting, finishing strongly and away from where the main action unfolded; the 7f trip (last on previous attempt as a 2yo) and AW are unknowns but that York effort suggests he can win from this mark.

3-3 as a 2yo, notably coming from well back to win the Gimcrack at York (6f, good); sixth in last season's 2000 Guineas on his reappearance but a shade disappointing returned to sprinting afterwards; gelded prior to his Chester fourth (also tried blinkered) when last seen nine months ago; perhaps getting back on a forecast sound surface will help and his style of racing should be suited by the demands of a big-field handicap.

Form & Verdict

3-3 in handicaps since undergoing wind surgery in May, his first success coming over 7f here (good) in June (third course win) before following up at Haydock (7f, good) and Hamilton (6f, good to soft); this will demand much more, but he is the only established front-runner in the field and his liking for this track is a big plus; shouldn't mind if the ground eases further.

Following wind surgery he immediately won three in a row in the summer (7f/6f, good/good to soft) and is on a competitive mark on that form; however, he's gone off the boil more recently and a revival is required.

Instant benefits from a wind operation in May, winning 7f handicaps at Chester and Haydock before producing a career-best RPR when powering home in the Scottish Stewards' Cup; two defeats have followed but faced stiff task in a Listed race formerly and then had a duff draw last time; good Irish apprentice booked; prominent racer who should give it another good go.

Form & Verdict

Won a Listed race at Pontefract (6f, good to firm) last summer and has finished runner-up in all four starts over this C&D, the latest in a handicap last month (good); ability to act around here an asset, but she does need to pull out more in this company; unraced on ground slower than good to soft.

Latest win came in a Pontefract Listed contest (6f, good to firm) in August last year, but not particularly consistent in the meantime; fair effort when fourth of seven at Chelmsford (6f, Polytrack; first-time tongue-tie) last month (Batal Dubai third), but she wouldn't be sure to build on it.
