Form & Verdict

Sole success came when sent off 2-7 for a three-runner novice here (1m4f) last December, though was demoted after finishing first past the post at Brighton earlier in year; has been running with credit on turf lately including when third of seven at Chester (1m4f, soft) 12 days ago; return to this trip no problem.

Made most when landing a three-runner Leicester novice (1m4f, good to firm) in May, but held in two Doncaster handicaps since and this sort of trip looked too far for him on the first occasion; enough to prove.

Form & Verdict

Handy sort whose record here reads 12113, her last two wins coming over this trip last autumn; only third in her hat-trick bid off this mark in December and not seen since, but she has run well after a similar absence and her liking for the conditions makes her one to be interested in.

Record on the AW reads 3137421133 and no doubts over her stamina having won three times over 1m6f, but she was beaten out of sight in a Listed contest at Bath (1m6f, heavy) last month and this doesn't look any easier.

Never dangerous from off the pace when a closing third on AW reappearance (1m6f); has done most of her racing on the AW but finished third of 14 in a 1m6f handicap on good to soft at Haydock last September when last on turf; danger.

Form & Verdict

Both wins have come over this trip, firstly here last autumn and at Carlisle (good) in June; well beaten in the Northumberland Vase at Newcastle (2m, Tapeta) last month, but the return to this distance brings her right into the equation; stable also runs Fox Flame.

Form & Verdict

Made a successful reappearance/handicap debut at Windsor (11.4f, good to firm) in May, but probably put up an even better effort when chasing home an improver at Sandown (1m6f, soft) last time; up 2lb, but still unexposed as a stayer and has run with credit around here before; respected.

1m3f winner earlier this year and doubled his tally last week at Chester (first run over 2m and in cheekpieces) when benefitting from a good ride by Darragh Keenan who gradually wound things up at the head of affairs; won only narrowly but with a bit in hand and likely to try something similar here off a 4lb higher mark.

Form & Verdict

Completed an AW hat-trick last winter, the last leg here (1m4f) in February; ran well the next twice but seemed to find 2m stretching him at Lingfield (Polytrack) last month; still 5lb above his last winning mark, but this intermediate trip may suit so he makes the shortlist.

Completed hat-trick in cheekpieces (one dead-heat; 1m2f/1m4f) and improved form in defeat when upped to 13.3f last time (third); seems to like gaps between his races and he's a big runner.
