Form & Verdict

Won over hurdles at Musselburgh in March and he was a very close fifth in a blanket finish on the Flat there (1m4f, good) three weeks ago; versatile trip-wise (ran well over 1m/1m2f last autumn) and could be involved.

Two-time hurdle winner and on the Flat; second at Ayr last month before finishing tailed off on the AW, since when he's had wind surgery; could go well off this mark if back in good order.

Won two in a row at Ayr (1m/1m2f, soft/good to soft) this summer before lesser run there (1m2f, good) last time, but perhaps a busy spell had caught up with him; returns from a 19-day break here and has won on good ground in the past; no surprise to see a bold show.

Form & Verdict

Has had wind surgery since last time, which could be a positive, and he made all at Hamilton (1m3f, soft) two starts ago; however, the rest of this season's form hasn't come up to scratch and he's back down in trip here.

Well treated on his old Flat form and has made the frame over fences the last twice; however, that recent chase form is pretty modest and this is his first Flat start since June 2020; may be best watched.

Better known as a chaser nowadays; first Flat start since 2020 when respectable sixth at Carlisle (1m1f, good) last month; needs to build on that performance on this AW debut but may benefit from the step up in trip.

Below par at Haydock last time but he was headstrong and has been running well otherwise this season, with two 1m1f wins at Hamilton in May; could have a say if settling better than last time.

Out of form on AW this year but could well revive returned to turf, having produced her best efforts in this sphere, notably close second off 15lb higher at Ayr; interesting, despite still being a maiden.

Poor form in three runs in 2024 (last two for this stable) and the addition of cheekpieces for the first time (has been wearing a visor) isn't enough to tempt.

Form & Verdict

Well beaten on three winter AW runs, including her handicap debut when last seen; returns with something to prove but she's very lightly raced and there's potential in her pedigree; her debut run at Brighton last October wasn't without promise and she could take a big step forward at some point.

Well-bred filly but she's been regressive in her five runs so far and has finished a tailed-off last in both her handicaps (1m/1m1f); dropped another 4lb but has a lot to prove on her step up to this trip.
