Form & Verdict

His two course wins have come over 5f but he's effective over C&D too; two 6f wins on good to soft this year, notably at York last month; creditable effort at Redcar last week but his central draw wouldn't look optimal.

Form & Verdict

Prominent racer; form dipped in the Haydock mud last time but he's better judged on his earlier efforts, including a Carlisle win last month (6f, good to soft); has the pace to capitalise on the rail but might find a few staying on past him.

Four-time winner over 6f for Tim Easterby, including on the old Fibresand surface at Southwell; didn't show much on her stable debut over C&D last time (behind Ultramarine) and best to look elsewhere.

Useful in Ireland in his pomp; dropped 21lb in seven runs for current stable without really looking like taking advantage (prominent in the betting on a few occasions); just three of his 37 runs have come over 6f and stamina could be an issue.

Form & Verdict

He had dropped a long way in the weights prior to his front-running success at Salisbury three weeks ago (6f, good; handles soft); up 5lb in a better race but he's still feasibly treated and the Salisbury run looks solid form; with the field likely to split, he looks set to grab the far rail and he's of major interest.

Useful as 2yo; little racing since but signs he retained his ability when a close fourth at Newbury in June (6f, good; blinkered for just the second time); sold out of Ed Walker's for 22,000gns last month; type that Ruth Carr is likely to find the key to at some point and he could be well drawn.

Took him 25 attempts to get off the mark and both wins have come on the AW (6f/7f) this year; twice placed on turf (6f, good to firm) in between, but is now 3lb higher so he will need to find a bit more to break his turf duck at the 23rd attempt.
