Form & Verdict

Four-time C&D winner who turned things around when landing a Class 3 event at Epsom (6f, good to soft) last month; goes back up in grade off 4lb higher but he seems as good as ever and should make another bold bid back at this track.

6yo who made it 3-7 over C&D when justifying favouritism in a Class 4 event in June; that was a clearcut success but this is tougher off 5lb higher on this big step back up in grade and all of his turf wins have come on good to firm; blinkers added.

4yo who is not easy to predict but he's now 4lb lower than for his Bath win last summer and didn't get much luck when a close fifth over C&D (behind Count Otto) two weeks ago; could be dangerous if he gets the breaks this time and he seems fairly versatile ground-wise.

Won at Salisbury last August on debut and tried a Group 2 on his only other 2yo start; getting closer with practice in handicaps this season and was runner-up behind Count Otto over C&D (good) last time; still has potential but this is tougher back up in grade and he's unraced on softer than good.

Ran in a Group race last season after winning on debut; appeared to be finding his level in handicaps when second at Windsor (6f, good) and can be forgiven his subsequent defeats as the ground was too slow back at Windsor and he conceded early lengths at Bath; wouldn't be a surprise to see him run well.

Has 13 wins on his CV and latest was at Newbury (6f) in June; has held his form since then and was a creditable fourth of 19 from a tough draw at York last Saturday; takes a big step back up in grade but has possibilities if he gets a good pace and some luck; acts on good to firm and good to soft.

Won three times on Polytrack as a juvenile; finished down the field in first six runs this season but he's really kicked on again with his stylish wins at Haydock (6f) and York (5.5f, both on good to soft) in his last two starts; 7lb higher than last time but he still looks feasibly treated and is an interesting contender.

Effective on fast and slow ground and he won four times last season, notably an impressive success at Ascot (6f, good) in September; well held in first two runs this term but he got back near best when runner-up over C&D last month; only 1lb higher here and he should give it another good shot.
