Form & Verdict

Daughter of Golden Horn who has progressed with each of her three runs to date, finishing second of five in 1m4f Ffos Las maiden last month; she's well in the mix now handicapping with her stamina drawn out more.

Clear promise in second and third maiden runs and step up to 2m saw her beat four rivals with ease in handicap at Thirsk on Friday; this is a quick turnaround but easy to think 6lb penalty (she's 2lb well in) may not stop her.

A fair maiden but he has failed to kick on since sent into handicaps, below-par fifth of ten over 1m4f here 27 days ago; this longer trip needs to yield major improvement.

Flat maiden with some fair form between 1m2f and 2m; very highly tried on hurdle debut in a Grade 2 at Cheltenham last month (2m1f, good to soft) and was well adrift; this is much more realistic.

Six-race maiden on Flat for James Horton, runner-up in 2m handicap at Thirsk when last seen; sold for 35,000gns since; the only runner who has no hurdling experience and it looks a tough starting point.

Form & Verdict

Yet to score this term and he beat only one after five months off in 2m Kempton AW handicap 23 days ago; he's no forlorn hope off a reduced mark though if building on that.

Has been a useful stayer in his time but losing run is up to 16, despite him having fallen 21lb below his last winning mark, and last two efforts were well below his best; best to look elsewhere.

Defied a much higher mark over C&D in 2022; however, recent form is nowhere near that level and he finished behind two of these rivals here five weeks ago; losing sequence looks set to continue.

Form & Verdict

Typical improver for this yard who arrives on a hat-trick after recent 2m handicap wins at Beverley and Ffos Las; big shout under a 6lb penalty to claim win number five of 2023.

3yo who made it 3-5 in handicaps when making all at Beverley (2m, good to firm) last Thursday; 2lb well in under a penalty for that clearcut win and he's a major player again, particularly if the ground dries out; his wins have come on good/good to firm and he's struggled in two runs on soft.

Improved since switching to handicaps, winning at Yarmouth (1m3.5f) and Bath (1m6f), but arguably isn't entirely straightforward, which does temper confidence for first attempt at 2m (bred to stay); soft ground was a possible excuse last time, so no surprise if he does have a say.

Arrives out of sorts, tried in a visor (discarded today) when last of nine in 2m Beverley handicap 15 days ago; others make much more appeal.
