Form & Verdict

Two of five wins at about 1m2f have come on downhill tracks, including this one; in peak form when making all at Epsom two starts ago (good to soft; has also won on soft and good) but he wasn't in the same form at Sandown last month and needs to put that behind him.

Form & Verdict

Some eye-catching form earlier in career and had a mark of 110 at his peak; fair fifth, considering the wide draw and getting hampered, in a big field here last July but much improved for latest wind surgery and being tongue tied in 2023, winning last two starts in fine style (1m3f AW; 1m2f, good); unpenalised for Sandown win last week and has very obvious claims.

Midfield finish in the Cambridgeshire five weeks ago wasn't a bad run (beaten less than 5l); 17lb higher than for his easy C&D win in June but he's still not fully exposed on AW; Wiliam Buick back on board today.

J: Charles Bishop

Rejuvenated this year and won two in a row (1m3f AW/1m2f, good) before solid efforts in defeat on his last three starts; there remains mileage in his mark judged on his 2020 form but if he's to win this hot race he'll need to produce a bigger performance than he's managed on his last few starts; tongue-tie refitted.

Front-runs; multiple wins include one over 1m1f on this track; has already won twice this year, over 1m2f at Windsor (soft and good to soft) but in a higher grade today and just out of the weights as well.

Form & Verdict

All three wins as 2yo, including Listed; has dropped in the weights and been in good form for new yard, giving best only late at Hamilton 12 days ago (1m1f, soft; has won on firm); back up 2lb and has a slight query as to whether the return to 1m2f will suit.

33-1 for the 20-runner Lincoln at Doncaster (1m) on reappearance six weeks ago but won it comfortably from Lattam, coming smoothly from off the pace; 7lb higher today; chief concern is probably that all his turf runs for this yard last term were on soft and all his three career wins have been on soft, but 1m1f is no problem and he had plenty of form on good or firmer in 2021 and 2022; has to be considered.

Won comfortably at Goodwood (1m1f, soft) last September on fourth stable start and he remains well treated on his old form; he ran pretty well on his final two starts last season but needs something extra if he's to win this competitive handicap on his return to action.

Off the mark for this yard when coming from off the pace to win a Goodwood handicap in September (1m1f, soft); left behind by an impressive winner at Hamilton last time but still ran creditably; more will be required to win this competitive handicap.

Form & Verdict

Progressive 3yo who is on a four-timer after three 1m2f wins, on AW, over C&D (good to firm) and at Ffos Las (good); didn't do anything in a hurry at the latter track and longer trips may well suit later but a truly run race would be a big help and he has scope for better.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark on AW (1m2f) when signing off for the Gosdens in November; creditable show, despite racing freely, on belated reappearance for new yard at Newmarket (1m2f, good) in July; should come on for the run, and fitting a hood could help, but this looks a tricky assignment.

1m2f novice winner for the Gosdens last winter; yet to shine for current connections, often pulling hard, but he continues to drop down the weights; a revival likely to be predicted by the betting.

Form & Verdict

Has course form at 1m1f; never better than when gaining consecutive 1m2f turf wins in the spring (on soft and good ground) and although no match for Graignes on the AW in June he isn't necessarily done with from a handicapping viewpoint back on grass.

C&D effort five weeks ago can be forgiven (first run for 193 days and he is a tricky ride for an apprentice) but he will probably need them to go very hard up front to have a winning chance kept to 1m.
