Form & Verdict

Flattered by his proximity to the easy winner in the Stewards' Cup consolation event 12 days ago but he had to wait for a gap and it was another fine run in defeat; C&D record reads 212153 and there's no doubt he has the raw ability to win races off his reduced mark; losing run is up to 15 though.

0-11 since completing a hat-trick over this trip on the AW early last year, but has become well handicapped and ran with credit when fifth of 11 (behind two of these) back on turf at Windsor (6f, good) last month; down another 1lb and could sneak into the frame if building on that.

Form & Verdict

C&D winner for former yard; the handicapper has been on top so far this season but he showed plenty of pace when doing second best of the far-side group in the Stewards' Cup 12 days ago (blinkered first time, retained); returning to better ground in his favour and this is much weaker; the runners shunned the stands' rail on Monday night but that's unlikely to be the case as it dries out, in which case he could be well drawn to attack.

Overcame a wide trip to score at Kempton (AW) last week, benefiting from the return to this grade and belated step up to 7f; now 3-6 in Class 4 events and remains unexposed at this distance; 5lb penalty is largely offset by Frederick Larson's useful claim; respected.

Form & Verdict

Won his first two starts for this yard and he ran a cracker back from a break when third of 26 at Royal Ascot (5f, good to firm) in June; should have fared better at Newmarket since (5f, good), even allowing for a stumble leaving the stalls, but star apprentice takes off a useful 3lb and 6f may be more his thing now.

J: Jason Hart

Latest ninth of 12 over C&D (first-time visor) when behind two of these can be excused on account of his rotten draw, but losing run now up to 14; may be reliant on a complete pace collapse in order to get involved.

Form & Verdict

Not entirely straightforward but he has won 13 races down the years, most recently a Class 4 at Newbury in June off a 3lb lower mark (6f, good); penultimate fourth at York, when doing best of the high numbers, was a good run and he's better than he showed here ten days ago (behind Antiphon); one to consider.

Had some good sprint form earlier in the season, notably his Newbury win in April (6f, soft) when sweeping through from off the pace; latest Yarmouth fourth (met trouble) has been handsomely franked by the winner and the third and he can run of the same mark today; drying ground would be the big negative.
