Plenty of creditable efforts this year but he's now 0-15 since his last win (January 2022) and he still has stamina to prove at this trip; others look stronger.

10yo who scored at Redcar (1m6f) in August and was runner-up at Thirsk (1m4f, soft) on penultimate start; plenty of similar form this season (not quite so good on latest start) and he's not dismissed but this is his shortest trip since March.

Has proved unreliable but he's going through a good spell of late, scoring at Redcar (1m6f) in August and runner-up at Thirsk (1m4f) eight days ago; this C&D scorer ought to be in the shake-up once more.

Form & Verdict

Half-brother to smart stayer Coltrane; finished in rear in his three 2yo runs (7f-1m1f) but he's shown promise with his two placed efforts in 1m6f handicaps this spring; ran into a major improver over C&D (good) last time and he should have more to offer at staying trips; respected with blinkers added after a short break.

Form & Verdict

Dual-purpose performer whose last win was over C&D but that was almost two years ago; finished placed here (1m6f) and at Catterick (2m, both on good) in his first two runs this season but his form nosedived back at Catterick on Tuesday; raced wide after missing the break in that race but he needs to bounce back after that heavy defeat.

Normally consistent, but was ending a 19-race losing run when making all at Ripon (2m, good) 15 days ago; only 2lb higher and worthy of respect, especially if allowed his own way again; acts on good to soft, though anything softer could be an issue.

Improved for the step up to 1m4f when making a winning reappearance at Thirsk in April; has held his form fairly well since but he needs to find more on this step back up to 1m6f; his win was on soft but he handles most ground.
