Form & Verdict

Won at Chelmsford (1m, AW) last July but she's struggled in four of her five runs since, including on her stable debut at Newcastle last month; mark is falling but she's now 1-10 and has plenty to prove back on turf.

Form & Verdict

Has record of 2-40 but her last win came over C&D (good) in May and has form figures of 323342 since then; that latest second was off this mark at Nottingham last week and she should make another bold bid.

In good form this season, scoring in good style off 6lb lower on reappearance (1m, heavy) before finishing close third to Do I Dream with a 4lb penalty at Ripon last time (1m, heavy); this stiff 7f should be no problem; should go well again.

Form & Verdict

Won at Southwell (7f, AW) in February and he went close behind Retirement Beckons in a classified event over C&D (good to soft) last week; has a swing in the weights with his old rival and he's respected; non-runner at Beverley on Wednesday.

Has won two of his last four 7f starts (this track and Newcastle) but has a mixed record over 1m and the most prominent of his recent attempts at it came off his lower turf mark; has more to prove this time.

Form & Verdict

Four runner-up efforts this season including over C&D last month but he's not fired in his last two runs and is now 0-16 since his last win 12 months ago; others are more persuasive.

Form & Verdict

Has very mixed record this season but he's scored twice over C&D including a narrow win over Turbo Command in a classified event last week; has a penalty back in a handicap but he's versatile ground-wise and could be in the thick of things again.

Form & Verdict

Made it second-time lucky for Michael Dods when rallying well to land a Newcastle handicap (1m2f, AW) in May; reached the frame in his next four runs but his form slumped at Musselburgh (1m1f, good) last week and he needs to bounce back after that.

His one win from 22 starts came over C&D but in a small-field event; he's now 8lb below that winning mark and a recent run on turf should have sharpened him up; should give a good account.

Off the mark on second start for this yard, over 1m2f on AW last May; finished close up over this trip on soft in July but nearly always kept to shorter since and not quite at his best of late (first-time cheekpieces latest, now discarded).
