Form & Verdict

Both wins have come at Newbury and he's 0-4 over 2m but he stays the trip well; not far off his best when second of eight at Kempton last month and should give it another good go.

Useful stayer on the Flat; looks all about stamina over hurdles, having rallied to win a 2m4f maiden at Market Rasen (good to soft) and again doing his best work late to finish a well-held fourth on handicap debut at Sandown (2m4f); this longer trip should suit him well and he's in the mix.

Form & Verdict

The winner of ten of his 29 starts under both codes, with 4-8 at this track plus two seconds; second to Ascot Gold Cup winner Courage Mon Ami over 1m6f here in May and not seen to best effect in either start since; 2m4f probably stretched him latest and he's not ruled out back in calmer waters.

Her two wins have come on AW but she's run to a higher level in defeat on turf the last twice; she will need improvement to defy this mark but stepping up to 2m could spark it.

Made it 2-3 on AW when scoring at Wolverhampton (1m4f) in June but she has a solid record back on turf since and has finished a creditable third on soft ground in last two runs (1m4f/1m6f); now drops back into a Class 4 event and she shouldn't be far away.

Yet to win in Britain but he's run some solid races this season, most recently over 2m4f here at the Glorious meeting; more minor money on the cards.

Appealing Flat profile with a view to today's hurdling debut, having shown good form at up to 2m and effective on soft ground; last seen finishing down the field in last year's Cesarewitch; by no means discounted on first run for Henrietta Knight.

Off the mark for the year with an emphatic success at Sandown last month (1m6f, good to soft); 2m is worth exploring on the Flat and a 4lb rise for last time looks manageable; shortlisted.
