Form & Verdict

Just one win from eight starts but he made a bold bid and was only just caught in a 7f handicap at Ayr (good) two weeks ago; this is a deeper race but he's on same mark as last time and looks interesting on this drop back in trip.

Form & Verdict

Two AW wins at Newcastle (6f) early this year but he has form figures of 0775 since returned to grass in May; wasn't beaten far at Ayr (6f, good) last time but he's now 0-8 on turf and others are more persuasive.

Well backed when easily seeing off ten rivals in a Newcastle nursery (6f, AW; first-time cheekpieces) last October; not reproduced that level in four runs this year but he's edging back down the weights and the switch to a visor could help.

J: Joanna Mason

T: Michael & David Easterby

Close to his last winning mark; finished runner-up in a big-field sprint at Ayr's Western Meeting (5f, Class 5; good to soft) last September; gradually lost his way on AW thereafter, but does return fresh from a break at a realistic level; soft to heavy ground (0-7) presents the risk factor.

Form & Verdict

Has form figures of 3223124 since May and she didn't get much luck when a 2l fourth at Catterick (6f) last time; now goes back up in trip but she handles most ground and could be a big factor if she gets the breaks.

Regressive and generally expensive to follow but he's found his level again, seeing off two subsequent winners (including Beneficiary) over C&D before a solid effort here latest in a race than didn't pan out his way; shortlisted back into a bigger field.

Form & Verdict

6yo who is not easy to predict but he had a tough assignment in the Silver Trophy at Ripon last time and was successful at Ayr (6f, good) on his penultimate run; still looks feasibly treated on that form and he's in the mix on this drop back in grade.

0-11 when trained by Adrian Nicholls, failing to build on her early promise; fitted with blinkers for her stable debut at Redcar seven weeks ago (6f, good) and she produced a strong finish to put her head in front on the finishing line; 3lb higher but last season's best offers hope that she will be up to the task.
