Form & Verdict

Some ability (tongue tied) in three starts for Joseph O'Brien last year; has had three runs for new yard this summer and he did well to finish a close fourth at Sandown (1m2f, good) last time after taking a strong hold; on same mark here and he's a big player if he can settle better.

Looks fairly exposed after ten starts but her last win was at Leicester (1m2f, good) on her penultimate run and things didn't really go her way in a tactical race at Sandown (1m2f, soft) last time; still looks on a workable mark and she's not ruled out back on quicker ground.

Record of 1-10 but his win was off a similar mark at Wolverhampton (9.4f, AW) in April and he rallied well to finish third over C&D (good) last Saturday; didn't get the best of runs in that tactical event and he should get a better tow into this race; respected.

Six-race maiden; has shown promise on various ground but her form has been a bit up and down so far and she was well held on her step up to 1m2f at Haydock (good) last month; mixed messages but she's had wind surgery since that last run and has possibilities if she can get back near best; tongue-tie removed.

Regressive for Hugo Palmer last year, in various aids, and struggled badly following wind surgery; Jason Hart is a positive booking after six months off, albeit he's 0-8 for the yard, so she's worth a market check down in trip on Tapeta debut.

J: Brandon Wilkie

T: Hugo Palmer

Showed promise on soft ground during light 2yo campaign and she's well treated judged on her first two handicap runs this April/June; however, her form has gone the wrong way since and the first-time visor (replacing cheekpieces) needs to prompt a dramatic turnaround.

Looks interesting on his best efforts this season, including a close fourth here (1m, good) in June, but his form has slumped in last two runs; record now stands at 0-8 and he needs to get back on track with cheekpieces added.

Form & Verdict

Scored off 2lb higher at Windsor (1m, good to soft) last August but he's 0-11 since and was well below form at Chepstow two weeks ago; handles most ground and this step back up in trip should be fine but others are more persuasive; new combination of headgear.
