J: Jason Hart

T: Katie Scott

Tough handicapper who ran a fine race when third in the Ayr Gold Cup on his first crack at 6f; third, beaten over 3l, off this mark at York four weeks ago (6f, soft) but that only tells half the story as he trounced the other runners on the stands' side and was also comfortably best of those to race up with the pace; still capable of better at this trip and he's a much better horse now than when last seen on AW (when he appeared to handle Tapeta well enough); deserves a good prize.

Front-runner who has won at 1m (AW and good to firm) and 7f (AW); off since a lesser effort back on turf at York in May and the career-high mark needs some overcoming.

Inconsistent this year and not much room for manoeuvre off this mark (3lb higher than for his comeback Newcastle win in the spring); won't mind the drop from 1m but whether he'll be able to lead as he likes with Percy's Lad next door is questionable.

Yet to run a poor race on AW, winning twice from four attempts (once here over 7f); good second at Newmarket this month but he was well beaten in a hot race at York last week (too free in first-time cheekpieces, which are left off today); eased in grade but a career best is still required.

Form & Verdict

Successful turf debut for Charlie Appleby as 2yo (7f, good to soft) and only narrowly failed to concede a penalty upped to 1m on AW in February 2022; gelded later and sold £105,000 in March; a long time off but market should guide on handicap debut for new yard.

Solid effort when third of 13 behind Jump The Gun over C&D 11 days ago, surging to the front 1f out but tying up close home; that effort can be marked up given he challenged up the middle of the track and he could emerge best of the four runners who reoppose today.

Smart at 6f when on song but he wasn't himself when favourite for a good York handicap in May and a first-time visor (cheekpieces refitted today) did nothing for him at Royal Ascot; drying ground will suit but although he has 7f form on the AW he has something to prove at present.
