Form & Verdict

Yet to win since return from a long absence but he's been banging at the door and made a bold bid from the front in a good 6f handicap at York last weekend (6f, good); effective at both 5f and on soft; back up in the weights but can't be ignored; one of two bang-in-form contenders for Tim Easterby.

Form & Verdict

The winner of three of his six runs in handicaps (all over 5f, two wins on good and one on heavy); got tired late on in a valuable 5f handicap at the Curragh five weeks ago but this isn't so competitive and he's still not fully exposed.

Form & Verdict

Admirable veteran who is chasing a hat-trick after front-running 5f wins at York and Pontefract last month (both on good to soft in this combination of accessories); acts on soft, probably on heavy, and latest 2lb rise is not insurmountable; stable also run Manila Scouse.

Below best of late but happiest produced late off a strong pace and that should be on the cards today; promise on good to soft but would have something to prove on slower; good apprentice knows him well but was a well-beaten fourth of six at Hamilton on Saturday.

Form & Verdict

Made a winning 2yo debut at Nottingham last April (5f, good) and ran several good races in defeat afterwards, in the frame at York (6f) on his final three outings; gelded over the winter and should have more to better at some point; unraced on slower than good, however, and he's up against some in-form opponents.

Took time to come to hand last season but he saw off 12 rivals at Ripon in September off just 2lb lower; good run on AW when last seen in November; should win more races but perhaps not on this ground after an absence.

Form & Verdict

Testing ground won't be an issue and he's 4lb lower than when winning a 5f handicap at Newcastle in January; mixed bag since, however, and stable appear to hold stronger claims with Spoof.

C&D winner who is very well treated on form as recent as last spring and may have needed his recent reappearance at Doncaster; however, he was regressive in the second half of last year and has something to prove.

Both wins on AW; 0-18 on turf and proved inconsistent last season but looks interesting off a greatly reduced mark back at Doncaster, having performed well (achieved peak RPR) in the 2021 Flying Childers on sole start here.

Papa Dont Preach

9st 7lb

J: Jack Mitchell

T: Kevin Frost

Useful 2yo who's not as good now and lacks consistency; on the positive side he's a dual Tapeta winner who's on a career-low mark for a yard in decent nick, and he's quite capable of popping up at this level.

Form & Verdict

Good record over 5f but he wasn't at his best returned to the trip at Newmarket 16 days ago (good); has shown promise on slow ground and can't be ignored off his reduced mark.

Form & Verdict

Looked good when winning on soft ground at Beverley in May and ran to a similar level when second of 14 in a good sprint at Epsom on Derby day; slowly away but disappointing nevertheless at Doncaster last time; still capable of better and has an experienced apprentice booked.

Impressive winner of a C&D handicap on soft ground last May; held her own in stronger company afterwards and she begins this campaign off a fair mark; won on her seasonal debut as a 2yo and although only seventh on last year's return, it was a cracking effort from a bad draw; interesting.

Only third to Squealer at Doncaster last time but it wasn't a bad run and she's got a squeak on her best form this season; ran well at the Dante meeting on her one visit to York.
