In good form last summer, winning a 5f handicap at Salisbury last August and then placed here and at Chepstow; likely best watched back from 237 days off though.

Closely matched with Atty's Edge on Bath form four weeks ago (5f, good); still lightly raced for her age and remains capable of better.

5yo who is 0-8 and has been well held in her last three handicaps (5f, good to firm); mark is tumbling and she may have needed the run at Nottingham last month but others are more convincing.

Form & Verdict

Veteran whose losing run stretches back to September 2021; three placed efforts on fast ground this summer but she wasn't at her best at Bath last time and others appeal more for win purposes.

Best known for her Bath work (ended a losing run in a 0-50 classified event there late last month) but she goes well here too; on the downgrade but arrives in form and is well drawn for one happiest on the sharp end, so needs considering.

Best form on good or quicker ground; three course wins over the extended 5f and 5f; having a mixed year but was only just touched off at Chepstow in June and her luck was out in a C&D classified next time; can be involved.

Form & Verdict

Getting on for two years since his last win but he's been threatening of late, finishing third at Chepstow in June and then runner-up at Bath four weeks ago despite having been forced wide in the closing stages (both 5f on good); capable of another prominent showing.

He has run twice at Brighton, winning both starts over this C&D in the autumn of 2021; 0-7 this year but he's been banging at the door and should give it another good go.

J: Gina Mangan

Slipped down the weights this season and there has been sufficient evidence to suggest he retains a fair bit of his ability; perhaps not helped by racing down the middle of the track at Chepstow last time and he's one to take seriously.

Form & Verdict

Collared in the final stride over C&D 12 days ago (just in front of Joy Choi) and confirmed her wellbeing with a narrow success at Lingfield on Saturday (6f, soft); penalty to shoulder but returning to 5f won't be an issue and she's a key player.
