Form & Verdict

In good form since upped in trip for new yard this year and she followed her 2m second here by breaking her duck in good style at Catterick; raised markedly in class when following up by a neck at York (again 2m on good) later in July; up another 6lb but there was a lot to like in those performances.

Won four in a row over 2m-2m2f last July-September and the last of those was here (3lb higher today); very reliable overall and had excuses (1m4f and 204 days off) 19 days ago; each-way contender.

Won four in a row (one here) over 2m-2m2f last July-September and looks effective on any going; very reliable overall but absent 204 days and she does have a little to prove both first time out and dropped back in trip.

Form & Verdict

With new trainer this season and career-best form recently, winning three of his last four starts (in a blanket finish last time) and unlucky in the other; four of those runs were at this track but all were about 1m3f/1m4f and he's never been further on Flat, so this trip requires guesswork.

Career-best form last May-August with a golden spell comprising three wins and two seconds; first four of those runs were at about 1m3f/1m4f and the narrow defeat to Baez on latest came in a slowly run race at 2m2f; four of them were also at this track and all on good or good to firm; absent 235 days but needs plenty of respect.

4 yo Filly

OR: 71

Form & Verdict

Inconsistent and can race freely, but something has clicked with her at Pontefract (2m1f) where her wins this season have made it a perfect 3-3 at that track; that includes last two starts but her only appearance at this track (four runs back) was not so hot and she carries a 5lb penalty.

Five turf wins over 2m/2m1f last June-September, none on worse than good to soft; not quite so good on soft at Chester (first run here) off today's career-high mark on final outing; needs to find more improvement.

Form & Verdict

Eighth win of his career when making all at Ayr (1m2f) this month and good runner-up here (1m6f) four days later; also 1m6f winner here in 2021 but he did little in his rare starts over further than that, for instance last of ten when he tried 2m here in 2022.

Seven course wins, most recently when gamely making all over this trip last August; out of form on AW when last seen in autumn, though, and does not have a good record when fresh.

Well below par in 1m2f contest here last Friday, taking AW record to 0-3; all wins remain at Scottish tracks; drops back in class but doesn't look the percentage call.

Form & Verdict

Completed a hat-trick (1m6f, 2m and 2m2f) in June on good and good to firm, before disappointing favourite in the Northumberland Vase on AW; partial revival at Sandown (1m6f, good) ten days ago and this trip is likely to suit him better.
