Form & Verdict

Ended a long losing run when scoring off a reduced mark at Nottingham (8.3f, soft) last month; couldn't make an impact in his follow-up bid at Newmarket (1m2f, good to soft) but that was against a pace bias and he now drops back in trip/grade; dangerous if this sets up for his closing style.

Two 1m turf wins for previous trainer in the summer but no strong signs since, for that yard or current one, that he was about to break his AW duck; ran respectably in blinkers in 2021, first-time cheekpieces today.

Two 1m wins on soft this summer; not discredited in midfield at Chelmsford (didn't get a clear run) this month and contested a voided race 13 days ago; changed hands for 6,000gns at the sales last week; considered but he's made far less of an impact on AW than turf.

Form & Verdict

Has form figures 42212225221 in handicaps and he finished well when justifying favouritism at Chepstow (1m, good to soft; acts on soft) last month; that was a narrow success but he's only 2lb higher on this drop back in grade and is a key player.

Well-bred 3yo who has shown some promise in his three runs in France (9.5f/10f) this summer; with Archie Watson now and he needs a close look on his British/handicap debut; gelded since his last run in June.

J: Brian Hughes

Flat win last summer came over 1m and he hasn't looked to see out 1m2f in a couple of tries, so stamina is a potential issue; Brian Hughes (second ride for the yard) is a positive booking though.

3 yo Gelding

OR: 67

Form & Verdict

Close fourth on handicap debut at Wolverhampton (8.6f, AW) last month and he took a strong hold and couldn't sustain his effort when upped to 1m2f at Newbury (soft) last time; still has potential after only five starts and he's not ruled out back in trip.

Consistent over hurdles towards end of last year and got off the mark at Sedgefield (2m4f, soft) in January but his last two runs were disappointing (Flat/hurdle) and he's not bred to benefit from this step up in trip; cheekpieces refitted; others look much safer.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark (15th attempt) when scoring at this track (7.3f, heavy) eight days ago and she followed up with a comfortable win at Windsor (1m, good) on Monday; has a double penalty but she's on a roll and is respected in her hat-trick bid.

Lightly raced filly but she's not progressed and was out the back on her handicap debut at Leicester (1m2f, good) last month; took a strong hold in that race but she needs to do much better on this drop back in trip; tongue-tie added.
