Form & Verdict

Ran well in competitive handicaps on her first two starts for her new yard before running out the decisive winner of a Goodwood handicap last week (6f, good to soft); had to wait for a gap on that occasion and found plenty when in the clear; contender despite her 6lb penalty.

Two 6f handicap wins in August; come up short off a similar mark the last twice and although she handles heavy, this drop back to 5f asks a different question of her.

Has done well for her new yard this season, winning competitive 6f handicaps at Glorious Goodwood and Chepstow; 7f might have stretched her stamina at Doncaster last time; will need another personal best to return to winning ways but it's certainly possible.

Form & Verdict

Over three years since the last of his five wins; he ran his best race of this campaign when fourth of 15 at Navan last month (5f, soft; first four clear and the form is solid); looks to be crying out for a return to 6f and he's got each-way claims once more.

Front-running wins at Lingfield (7f, AW) and Leicester (6f, good to firm) this year; hit with a 9lb rise for the latter win but she's unexposed as a sprinter and this race doesn't look overloaded with early pace; new tongue-tie joins the hood today; interesting.
