Form & Verdict

Improved plenty on the AW last winter, completing a four-timer over this trip on Polytrack/Tapeta; ran consistently well afterwards and soft ground a possible excuse for a below-par effort at Goodwood last time; first visit here, but still much respected back on Polytrack.

Good record on AW but he's 0-10 on turf; lower rated in this sphere but he's been shown his best turf form on good or quicker; Oisin Murphy a good booking but he'll need the ground to dry out.

6-15 on the AW, including a C&D success; up another 4lb for last month's Wolverhampton win (6f, Tapeta) but has won off higher marks in the past; 2-3 since the visor went on and another big run is expected.

Record over C&D reads 11721 and she's returned to something like her best since a visor went on, winning twice and finishing second at Chelmsford last time (all 6f); might face competition for the lead but she's certainly not out of this.

Form & Verdict

All six AW runs have been on Tapeta, winning twice over this trip at Newcastle earlier in the year and adding a turf success at Nottingham (6f, soft; first-time cheekpieces) last month; has to prove himself on Polytrack, but his consistency means that he cannot be dismissed.

Both wins have come on the Wolverhampton Tapeta, including on his return from 226 days off (6f; first-time cheekpieces) in June; didn't build on it over 7f here last month (has won over that trip), but would be a player if back to his best.

Both wins came here (5f/6f) last year, but unplaced in his last five starts and cheekpieces made little difference last time; the return to this venue is a positive, though, and he is now 6lb below his last winning mark; interesting.

In full flow in the second half of 2022, a fourth of 24 in the Gold Cup (good; handles good to soft) showing how effective he is in this type of race; soft and heavy ground probably hasn't helped in two of his four turf starts this year but the other two defeats need excuses; even so, too well treated to ignore, 6lb lower than last September.

Dual AW winner over 7f for Jane Chapple-Hyam late last year (including here), but well beaten in three completed starts since returning in April; makes his stable debut (same owners) in first-time cheekpieces, but enough to prove now back to this trip for the first time since his debut.
