Form & Verdict

Listed 2yo winner at this meeting (5f); latest turf win was 12 months ago but a strong-finishing effort over 5f here in May suggests this intermediate trip will suit and he did well to be third of 12 on good to soft at Goodwood last time considering quicker ground suits best.

Only 1lb higher than for his impressive victory at Newcastle in August; not in quite such rude form this winter but there have been excuses (caught wide early at Lingfield last time); likely to make a bold bid and has won over C&D but possible he's better suited to a straight track.

Form & Verdict

Made most to win this race last year (good); well held in 2023, including when coasting home once his chance had gone at Ascot latest (blinkers refitted; cheekpieces today); however, 3lb lower than 12 months ago and trainer has pulled bigger rabbits out of the hat (won three of the last ten runnings).

Ended 2023 in the form of his life, winning at Newcastle then beating Hiya Maite over C&D in December; stayed on well on that occasion but he's since disappointed at Lingfield; returning to a straight track can help but he's not an obvious winner on these terms.

Useful sprinter on his day and he's rediscovered his spark in recent months, winning 5f handicaps at Newcastle and Southwell (latest form franked by the runner-up); another 5lb higher ahead of his hat-trick attempt but he's well drawn and should make a bold bid.

Form & Verdict

Not ideally drawn here last August and has knocked on some handicap doors since, but it's debatable whether he's well enough treated to win at this level; lesser effort at Sandown on Sunday and again without regular tongue-tie.

Form & Verdict

Front-runs; useful at 5f and 6f on AW but losing turf run goes back more than two years and he's not yet recaptured best form since back in February from a layoff; wore cheekpieces latest, now discarded; will do well to revive in this company even though the handicapper is giving him a chance.

This winter's two wins have come at Lingfield but he has run well over C&D too; had a couple of today's rivals behind him when making all to win at Lingfield three weeks ago; 4lb higher and this might not pan out quite so favourably.

Listed winner over C&D in 2022; took full advantage of a drop in the weights when readily seeing off seven rivals in a Class 5 event here last month (hung right) and then went close at Wolverhampton one week later (again hung right, front two clear); solid effort over 6f here on Sunday; theoretically up against it from out of the weights but it wasn't that long ago that he was a close fifth in the Dash off much higher; likely to go well.

Form & Verdict

Sole handicap win for previous yard came over 7f; encouraging start for this one on AW but turf defeats since need explaining, especially a heavy one at Windsor in July latest (6f, good to firm; tongue-tie added, as today).

Form & Verdict

Given a very cool ride when coming from a long way back to beat his 17 rivals here in May (5f, good to firm); not seen to best advantage in his three runs since, never looking happy when well beaten at Newmarket 25 days ago, but not ruled out back on a more conventional track.

Back to the same mark from which he beat 17 rivals at York (5f, good to firm) in May but slim pickings since, never the slightest threat when 5l second in a small field at Yarmouth two weeks ago; needs a revival.

Now back to the same mark off which he beat 17 rivals at York in May (5f, good to firm) and there's light at the end of the tunnel after finishing only 3l off the principals last time at Ascot (6f); won his novice here on soft; respected.
