Form & Verdict

Both wins came over 6f last September when trained by Rebecca Menzies, including at Newcastle (Tapeta); 0-11 since and well held in a 0-50 classified event at Thirsk (6f, good) six days ago despite market support; interesting to see if her backers return with blinkers replacing cheekpieces; stable also runs Sharrabang.

Form & Verdict

Eight-race maiden who ran well to finish third of ten on his Kempton return (6f, Polytrack; 66-1) in March, but hasn't built on it since and only eighth of 12 dropped to this level over C&D 13 days ago; look elsewhere.

Won three times over 6f-1m on the AW for Jamie Osborne early in the year and only just denied over C&D last month; made an encouraging debut for this yard when third of eight at Beverley (7f, heavy) 13 days later; non-runner at Beverley Wednesday; shortlisted.

Won at Catterick and over C&D in the autumn; had an excuse (clipped heels) in final run last year and she returned from a break with a strong-finishing second here (6f) four weeks ago; only 1lb higher than for that close call and she's a key player.

Hasn't built on her all-the-way success on her Kempton reappearance (6f, Polytrack) in three subsequent starts, but the latest was in a 0-70 and she drops to this level for the first time; return to 7f not a problem, having won over the trip (also at Kempton) last year; respected.

Winless in his first ten attempts but has won his last two, a 0-55 handicap at Chelmsford (7f, Polytrack) and a 0-50 classified event at Lingfield (1m, Polytrack); 6lb higher than at Chelmsford, but comes into this in better form than most and respected if as effective back on Tapeta.
