Form & Verdict

Multiple winner on turf and AW but the latter is more his scene; however, he is on a dangerous mark in this sphere and was a fair third over C&D (good to firm) two starts ago; didn't enjoy a clear run when failing to threaten over 1m here (good) yesterday.

9st 8lb

J: Jack Doughty

15 career wins, the latest over C&D last summer; not getting any younger but stuck to his task pretty well when fourth on Polytrack last month and it won't be a surprise if he features here.

Form & Verdict

Has had some close calls on Polytrack (7f) and turf (5.7f, firm) this season and she caught the eye with her late headway over 6f at Goodwood (fifth of 13) last Tuesday; her losing run is mounting up but she's a dual C&D winner who has possibilities back up in trip.

Form & Verdict

Has won three of his last four starts and he made it 2-2 for Ed Dunlop when scoring at Chepstow (7f, good to firm) last time; up another 5lb but he's raised his form to a new level this summer and is open to more progress; key player.

Scored twice over 7f on turf in June but his recent form is not so encouraging, only ninth in 7f Kempton handicap last month; more is required on his first go on Tapeta.

Form & Verdict

Didn't really fire at Epsom last time but he won at Chepstow (7f, good to firm) in June and has an impressive record of 1313113 at Brighton; only 2lb higher than for that last success and he looks interesting back at this track.

Often leads; one of his three 7f wins came on soft (the others on good to firm) but questionable whether testing ground brings out the best in him and others more likely to be suited by the conditions.

Form & Verdict

Won a Wolverhampton novice (7f, Tapeta) last September, but he's not really gone on from that; still lightly raced and was a fair fourth at Kempton (1m, Polytrack) last time but he needs to find more back at this trip; cheekpieces added.

3yo filly who has form figures of 211 at this track and that latest success was over C&D (good to firm) last month; now goes back up in grade but she held off a clear second last time and still looks feasibly treated off 4lb higher here; respected.

Form & Verdict

Six-race maiden who has been consistent rather than progressive; gave it a decent shot when a front-running fourth of 16 in a Yarmouth handicap (7f, good) last month but was beaten around 5l in the end and he could be vulnerable again in this similar race.
