Form & Verdict

Remains a maiden (0-8) but knocking on the door this year in handicaps from 1m4f to 2m; saw out the longer trip fine last time at Haydock (heavy) and looks sure to take a hand.

Miss Cynthia

9st 3lb

J: Luke Morris

T: Sir Mark Prescott Bt

Maiden who proved expensive to follow in handicaps last year and nudged up the weights in defeat; there was nothing wrong with her final second off 2lb lower, though, and she's capable if ready after eight months off.

4 yo Colt

OR: 56

Form & Verdict

It was a Class 6 handicap in which he won his first race on turf at Catterick (2m, good to soft) recently and he has more on his plate this time up 3lb; however, he's an assured stayer who will be boxing on.

J: Isabelle Ryder

T: Gary Brown

Four-time AW winner (1m6f-2m; all Class 6 handicaps); raced too freely and showed only minor promise on last month's hurdling debut at Ascot (2m3f, good) but today's race is much easier; considered each-way.

Won three times last year from 1m4f to 1m6f but 2023 isn't going so well and he's opposable in his current run of form.

J: Aiden Brookes

T: Micky Hammond

Has generally struggled since his C&D win in December 2022 but he was runner-up at Thirsk on his penultimate run last season and he now returns to Tapeta off a very dangerous mark; yard is in decent form and he needs checking in market on return.

Four career wins from 1m4f to 1m6f; started this campaign with a decent second but below par since and this is his first run over this far.
