Form & Verdict

Tailed off over C&D last September but had wind surgery soon afterwards and started 2023 with three wins (two over 1m4f); turned over when 1-4 in a three-runner race in June when last seen, but no shock if he bounces back and his peak turf form (penultimate start) makes this look an attractive mark.

J: Brandon Wilkie

Major improver with four middle-distance wins for Sir Mark Prescott (three on AW) since June; tailed off at Epsom on final run for that trainer but was reported to have had an irregular heartbeat and he still looks feasibly treated on his penultimate form; changed hands for 20,000gns in October and needs watching in the market on stable debut.

Form & Verdict

Two AW wins (1m6f/2m) early in 2022; absent 413 days before this season and gave the first signs of a return to form when third of six at Leicester (1m4f; Isle Of Sark second) on latest outing; needs to build on that but it may be possible and his old form reads very well.

3yo whose best form came in small fields at 1m2f/1m4f on his first three outings this term, including a win on Chelmsford Polytrack; failure over 1m6f at Haydock on latest start came in a very hot race, so he's forgiven that, but he needs to resume improvement.

Form & Verdict

Sole win (ten races) came in a 1m3f novice on Southwell Tapeta in February and he ran well over C&D next time; turf runs on last three outings have been less encouraging (something amiss on first occasion) but his fall in the weights makes him look well handicapped on this return to AW.

Hard to settle and often makes the running; good to soft ground may have been against him on last two outings and 1m6f surely was on latest; his only AW run this year was a win (Southwell 1m4f) and his AW record now includes three wins and a second, so he's more interesting back in this sphere.

Won three times last year (twice on turf) and improved again when Listed third at Lingfield (1m5f, AW) in November; went up the weights as a result and was only sixth of seven in an AW handicap next time, but in view of her progressive profile she's not ruled out on this return to action.

Just one win since 2019 but that came off 3lb higher at Chester (1m4f) last summer and this veteran was a respectable fifth at Southwell last month; may have done too much too soon behind an in-form rival in that race and he's not ruled out.
