Form & Verdict

Comfortably landed a Newcastle novice (1m2f, Tapeta) in April and after a couple of blowouts on turf, returned to the AW with a creditable third of 12 over C&D a fortnight ago; ran as though just in need of that first start in two months and no surprise to see him fare even better this time; high on list.

Front-runner who has raced almost exclusively on AW, winning five times; best to forgive latest effort; fairly useful but has something to prove off career-high mark back on turf and is not the percentage call.

Five wins inside the last 12 months but they've come at a cost mark-wise and he was only fourth off this career-high rating here 28 days ago; should give his running once more (well drawn) but may come up short.

Form & Verdict

Hinted at ability in three starts on turf, but improved when making a successful handicap/AW debut under Harry Davies at Wolverhampton (8.6f, Tapeta) a fortnight ago; 3lb higher and her stamina-laden pedigree on the dam's side suggests she should appreciate the longer trip; a player.

Both wins have come on AW but she's still unexposed on turf and raised her form to a new level when second of 14 here (1m4f, soft) last month; now steps up to 1m6f but she finished well after a troubled run last time and is open to more progress; respected.

Off the mark at the third attempt in a Wolverhampton novice (7f, Tapeta) in January, but was well beaten on handicap debut back there (8.6f) four months later and has been off another 11 weeks since having been gelded in the meantime; longer trip should suit but he does have a bit to prove.

Ran well in both starts over 1m on the AW in January (including here) and off the mark at the seventh attempt at Ripon (9.7f, good) in June; soft ground the excuse for his latest effort and could go well returned here.

Only sixth in his first two handicaps (1m/1m2f) but well backed last time and he'd previously run well in novices at up to 1m4f; it's possible today's step back up in trip will be a positive and he's not written off.

Hasn't yet built on the promise he showed last autumn since returning in handicaps, but he may have needed the run at Sandown (1m, good; first start since being gelded) 13 days ago; makes his AW debut in first-time cheekpieces and the return to a longer trip looks a good move on pedigree; could go well.

Promising debut when fourth of 15 at Goodwood (7f, good to firm) last summer, but not built on it in either start since and was beaten a long way on her Carlisle return (1m3f, good to soft) last month; improvement needed on handicap debut, but is a half-sister to a multiple AW winner so she is worth keeping an eye on.

Two wins last year, a Kempton novice (6f, Polytrack) and a Newmarket nursery (7f, good), but has regressed since her promising Wolverhampton return (7f, Tapeta) in March; up in trip and there is some stamina in her pedigree, but she needs to bounce back and has a wide draw to overcome.

Scored on this course in October 2022 and on the July course here last August, her last two wins; also good third here last September and made a satisfactory reappearance on AW three weeks ago; a bit extra is needed from her in the first-time headgear, though.
