Form & Verdict

0-5 since his 3yo reappearance win but shaped encouragingly at Kempton (1m4f, AW) on sole run this term, finishing second behind a rival who dictated the pace; possibilities off same mark on return from three-month break, provided this pans out better.

It was a four-runner race at Goodwood a fortnight ago (1m4f, soft; made all) in which he returned to winning ways, and he's 3lb higher in a hotter race here; however, this 4yo hasn't had much racing and could still have more to offer; ran well over C&D last September and he's not ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Easily the oldest contender in this field, being an 8yo; signs of retaining ability at Epsom in April (second run for new yard) but well beaten at Glorious Goodwood on return from break; well treated on peak RPRs but can be opposed on balance of 2023 form.

Creditable third in City And Suburban Handicap over C&D (soft) in April and now 6lb lower but has very mixed record for new stable this season and it's hard to know what to expect from him after last month's poor AW run.

Inconsistent results for new stable this term; respectable second of four at Goodwood (1m4f) most recently but now returns to a deeper field and is 0-5 on AW; not certain to back up latest effort.

Form & Verdict

Became a touch exposed over 7f-1m but is unexposed over middle distances and ran well upped to 1m2f at Chelmsford (AW) last time, leaving the impression he'll stay 1m4f (pedigree backs that up); interesting off the same mark returned to turf, especially with being 1-1 at Goodwood.

Having been gelded he returned to form with 1l third on last month's reappearance at Wolverhampton (8.6f, AW); went close in Listed race here (7f, good) last May on sole previous run on the Rowley Mile and could be involved.

Became a touch exposed over 7f-1m but is unexposed over middle distances and ran well upped to 1m2f on AW two outings ago; soft ground possibly contributed to his subsequent defeat over 1m4f; could go well if aided by first-time headgear.

Form & Verdict

Has developed into a fairly useful handicapper over 1m4f this term, winning three times; sound efforts since last success, most recently fourth in Shergar Cup Classic at Ascot (good to soft); close second at Newbury (good) the time before; solid claims.

Unsuited by soft ground last time out but a solid contender in 1m4f turf handicaps previously; higher in the weights than when winning his latest two AW races, over 1m4f at Lingfield, but the manner of the most recent win suggests the return to AW will be a good move; respected.

Successful three times (on AW and good to firm) this season; ran well at Newbury (1m4f, good) three weeks ago despite finishing lame; drying ground would be in his favour, as he finished last on both his outings on softer than good; raised another 3lb though.
