Form & Verdict

Wins have come off lower marks, mainly in May, and he looked to have no excuses last time, having been drawn away from the action at York; also, it's hard to make a case for this sort of ground being optimal.

Boasts a consistent record over C&D without winning, all his victories having come over an easy 6f on turf; outran market expectations behind Outrun The Storm on his C&D comeback and gives his trainer a decent hand.

Form & Verdict

Turned in a rare below-par effort last time; is well suited by an easy 6f on soft ground but she needs to bounce back and there's little wiggle room off this mark (5lb higher than when last successful).

Four-time winner over this trip off much lower marks for Simon Pearce last season; has resumed in good form, flattening out late over a stiffer 6f last time (again raced freely), and there's no obvious reason he won't go well again.

Progressive sprinter; successful in a 6f handicap at Kempton 11 weeks ago, a win that was backed up by the Topspeed figure; should win more races this term but the ground is a major concern (reportedly unsuited by soft when tried on it once as a 3yo).

Not as good now and boasts a patchy record at best on slow turf; has been threatening to cash in on a sliding mark all year but ran poorly in a hood/cheekpieces (off today) last time and is some way down the pecking order.

Often pulls hard, usually from the front, and has become wildly inconsistent; one of his better efforts over C&D last time (first run in a sprint; minus usual headgear, returns now) but it's hard to know what to expect.

Two wins for Ed Walker, the latest when scoring at Leicester (6f, good to soft) in October; changed hands for 20,000gns soon afterwards; faded on her stable debut over C&D last month but she may have needed the run and still looks feasibly treated on her penultimate form; not ruled out.
