Form & Verdict

0-6 but he looks interesting on his second in a Doncaster handicap (1m4f, soft) in April and has had excuses in two runs at 1m6f since; looks well handicapped on his peak form and he could be dangerous back at this trip; tongue-tie added.

Form & Verdict

Has done well since switched to middle distances this season and he made it 2-3 in handicaps with a comfortable win at Newbury (1m4f, good) in June; 7lb higher back from a short break but he beat a clear second last time and is open to more progress; big player.

Two wins (11.4f/1m4f) in June from his first three handicaps and runner-up at Ffos Las (1m4f) a fortnight ago when back from a break; 3lb wrong at the weights here and further improvement is needed, but he appeared to idle in front last time and could have plenty more left in the tank.

Qualifying runs were at 7f-1m and he duly improved for stepping up to nearly this far when winning easily at Yarmouth (good to firm; first run since gelded); disappointingly unable to defy a penalty when odds-on at Lingfield (AW) on Monday but that track might not have been ideal (nor the way the race unfolded) and he came clear of the second; respected.

Form & Verdict

0-5 but she kicked off her handicap career with a good second here (1m2f, good) last month and backed that up with a close third at Sandown (1m2f, soft); nudged up 2lb but she still has potential and has shaped as though this new trip could suit; shortlisted

Struggled to cope with heavy ground last time and is now 0-7 but made the frame in her first three handicaps (1m2f-1m4f; all on turf) and has a fighting chance off her current mark if suited by today's switch to Tapeta.

Form & Verdict

Five-time jumps winner but he's not made an impact over hurdles in his last two starts; well treated on some old Flat form but he's 0-7 in this sphere and was beaten 19l in a Windsor maiden (1m2f) three runs back; others preferred.

Three-time hurdle winner (twice over C&D) who has dropped 2lb since respectable sixth in competitive Summer Hurdle at Market Rasen (2m, soft) in July; placed on the Flat since and sure to be suited by return to this track; one to consider.

Has a patchy profile and was well held over hurdles (2m1f, good) last time but he won on the Flat at Pontefract (1m2f, good to soft) on his penultimate run; only 3lb higher than for that success but he still has something to prove at this trip and others look more solid.

Form & Verdict

Had three runs as a juvenile and the last two resulted in a near miss at Yarmouth (1m1f, good to soft) and a AW win at Wolverhampton (9.4f; been gelded since); returns from 317 days off but he's out of a 1m4f winner and looks interesting upped to this trip on handicap debut.

It's not all been plain sailing in his nine-race career but he's 2-2 at Wolverhampton, latterly in 1m4f handicap at turn of the year (Night At Sea keeping on in fifth); that display suggested he'd stay further, which he failed to prove over 2m at Lingfield two weeks ago but he ran respectably and looks a leading candidate back at this track.
