5 yo Colt

OR: 57

Form & Verdict

Yet to win on turf (0-12) but was unlucky to meet trouble at Chepstow (7f, good to soft; dead-heated for third) last month and he ran well here (7f, good) yesterday; could be involved.

3 yo Filly

OR: 62

Form & Verdict

Twice placed on AW (6f); has failed to match those efforts in more recent times (6f-1m); wore this newly applied headgear at Chelmsford (1m; 33-1) last time, and certainly isn't a forlorn hope from a much-reduced turf mark in a winnable contest.

Won twice last autumn, including over C&D (off 2lb lower); unsighted in her final two runs last year but she's back down into a Class 6 and has the ability to feature.

Won a couple of Class 6 7f handicaps in the autumn; below par at Southwell four weeks ago and others are more appealing today.

Form & Verdict

Inching closer to the breakthrough; was only reeled-in close home by Hitched at Bath (1m, Class 6, good; 4-1) three weeks ago; a simple reproduction of that performance will ensure that she has every chance; the capable 3lb claimer Aidan Keeley takes the mount.

8 yo Gelding

OR: 60

Form & Verdict

Won three on the bounce over C&D, rising a combined total of 12lb in the handicap, before the winning run came to an end at Epsom (8.5f, Class 5; last of ten); this 8yo did stumble leaving the stalls there though, so could feasibly bounce back at a track which clearly suits.

J: Rhys Clutterbuck

T: John Gallagher

Three C&D wins in 2023; suffered dip in form on AW in February/March and had to settle for midfield finish over C&D when back on turf ten days ago; needs to up his game but, given his course record, can't be ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Veteran (12-119); in reasonable fettle under Mollie Phillips during May (232), but weakened tamely at Chepstow (7f, good to firm) in June; is rated 8lb lower than when making all for last win (here, 7f) in June 2022; stablemate of Local Bay.

12yo who was disappointing here (1m) last Tuesday but did too much too soon in that amateurs' race; had previously been running consistently well (including over C&D) and he may well bounce back with a bold bid.
