4 yo Colt

OR: 80

Form & Verdict

Responded to pressure to win at Hamilton (6f, soft) 16 days ago on his third start of the season; remains well treated back up 4lb and he won over 7f on fast ground last season; he's one to consider.

J: Oisin Murphy

Couple of Class 4 wins on AW this year; effective on turf but came up well short in C&D event last month and remains on a difficult mark; still seeking a first success in this grade.

5 yo Gelding

Form & Verdict

Hold-up gelding who bounced back to form with a comfortable win at Ayr (7f, good) recently; also effective here; it remains to be seen if he'll get the same strong gallop as last time but he's respected nevertheless up 7lb.

5 yo Gelding

OR: 81

Form & Verdict

Easily made all over C&D (good) this month and again ran well when second under 5lb penalty at Ayr (7f, good) 13 days ago, albeit no match for the winner Abduction; new mark has now kicked in and he's 7lb higher than for latest win, but he's in top form and can give another good account.

6 yo Gelding

OR: 81

Form & Verdict

Two-time C&D winner (good) who scored at Beverley (7.4f, good to firm) in June; however, he's finished down the field the last twice (over C&D most recently) and needs to get back on track.

A fair 7f winner at his best but he has yet to fire in two 6f Newcastle handicaps this term so needs to take a big step forward.

7 yo Gelding

OR: 87

Form & Verdict

Hasn't been at his best on his last three starts but he's dropped to a handy mark and his last two wins have come over C&D (good/good to soft); it will be no surprise to see him go well.
