Form & Verdict

Five-time AW winner who broke her turf duck over C&D last September (good to soft); has not fired in two turf runs back from a break but it's possible the return to this track will give her a lift.

Made good progress for Simon Pearce last season, winning four times, and he has run well in defeat in three runs for his new stable; had to wait for a gap at Nottingham last time and by the time he was in the clear the winner was out of sight; still more to come from him.

Progressive sprinter; successful in a 6f handicap at Kempton 11 weeks ago, a win that was backed up by the Topspeed figure; should win more races this term but the ground is a major concern (reportedly unsuited by soft when tried on it once as a 3yo).

Form & Verdict

Three front-running wins on Lingfield AW in the first part of 2022 when trained by Conrad Allen; well short of his best in recent starts and sold for 7,000gns last month; down in the weights ahead of this stable debut but would have something to prove on slower than good.

Seemingly displayed improvement when second of six on his handicap debut at Chelmsford last month (6f, AW) but the form has taken some knocks; still has potential and that doesn't apply to many of his rivals.

Won twice for Roger Varian; hadn't made the top three for this yard until coming to life in first-time blinkers over C&D two weeks ago and strolling home by more than 5l (under Shariq Mohd who claimed 3lb that day); back up 8lb and into a Class 5, but might well have turned a corner; likely to race prominently.

Well down the field at Lingfield (1m, AW) last month and has now been unplaced all 11 starts for current stable; drops back in trip and swaps cheekpieces for first-time blinkers here; considered only if conditions become very testing (has won on heavy ground).
