Form & Verdict

Seven-race maiden but he has been placed in all four handicap runs this year (1m-1m2f); needs more to break his duck but the drop to 7f could spark something extra.

In the frame in all three handicaps, most recently when close second to Racing Demon at Salisbury (1m, good to firm; stumbled leaving stalls) last month; nudged up another 1lb for that but has big role to play here if first-time cheekpieces have any positive effect.

Form & Verdict

Prominent racer who is enjoying a fine season, winning for the fifth time in 2023 when keeping on strongly over C&D two weeks ago; 3lb rise for the latest win seems lenient since she beat another in-form and progressive rival, who has won again since, in a good Topspeed figure; obvious claims.

6f winner on fast turf last summer; four runs this year, running poorly on three of them (bled from the nose once and twice well beaten on soft) but beaten just half a length at Wolverhampton in May (7f; 4lb lower today); not one for the faint of heart but can't discount if the cheekpieces have the desired effect.

Drew a blank and had very mixed record during six-race campaign last season; not seen since down-the-field run at Ascot in September; swaps cheekpieces for first-time blinkers and has tongue-tie added here; others have much less to prove.

Landed a Windsor novice (6f, good to firm) last summer and his third of six at Epsom (7f, good; first-time cheekpieces) three weeks ago was one of his better efforts since handicapping; races off the same mark, but he has become inconsistent.

AW maiden winner (7f) in June; two sound efforts in handicaps since (6f) while leaving the impression this trip would suit better; capable of better and he ran to form on good to firm on his seasonal return.

Always behind after a slow start on his return to action at Newmarket eight weeks ago; returning cheekpieces may help but dropping to 7f isn't sure to; enough to prove.
