Form & Verdict

3yo who put up easily his best effort when second of 26 in the big 5f handicap at Royal Ascot (good to firm) in June; not disgraced when fifth of ten in Group 2 at Goodwood (good to soft) last time and may yet have improvement in him, especially now returning to quicker ground; high on the list.

Went the right way as a 3yo, showing how well a stiff finish suits him when shooting home to win the Listed Beverley Bullet (5f, good; has form on soft) then not beaten far in the Group 1 Abbaye; has a similar profile to his sire Profitable who won this for the yard in 2016 and although never in the hunt on heavy ground at Bath last month he should come on for the run; looks very likely to do better as a 4yo.

2-2 as a 2yo with the wins coming over 6f on good to soft and good; developed into a smart sprinter at three, notably a defeat of Silky Wilkie in the Listed Beverley Bullet last September (5f, good); beaten under 3l in the Group 1 Abbaye when last seen six months ago; still has time to do better and encouragement for heavy ground on breeding.

Form & Verdict

Tough customer who usually gives his running; faced a stiff task behind Highfield Princess and co in Goodwood Group 2 last month, but he'd previously run well in defeat in the Dash at Epsom and a 5f Listed race at York; far from disgraced when fourth in a Racing League event at Newcastle on Thursday night; 1-1 at Beverley; unlikely to be far away if turned out again.

Tough sort who acts on any ground; nearly collared Blind Beggar at Bath two weeks ago switched back to turf from AW; impressively defied this mark in the Scottish Sprint Cup over C&D last April (sole Musselburgh run) and looks interesting back here.

Well handicapped on last season's best; not at the same level on AW this winter but he's the type to pop up sooner rather than later; whether it will be on ground so testing as this is a moot point.

Form & Verdict

Smart sprinter, better than ever this year with four excellent efforts in defeat in hot 6f handicaps, first home in the stand-side group when runner-up in the Stewards' Cup at Goodwood four weeks ago; handles any ground and gives the impression he'll cope with today's drop to 5f (for only the second time); leading contender.

Better than ever last year with four excellent efforts in defeat in hot 6f handicaps, including this one on his reappearance; close third in a Beverley Listed event in September and his final outing in 2023 can be safely ignored as he was drawn on the wrong side at York; back from 203 days off but he's not out of this if fully wound up for his return.

Form & Verdict

The Bullet winner in 2021 and 2022 but hasn't been anywhere near his best in three runs this season, beaten 10l into seventh of ten in the Shergar Cup Dash on latest; could be revived by a return to Beverley but carries obvious risks.

Magnificent record here and won this race in 2018 and 2021; however, he hasn't beaten a rival in his two runs this year, in a Group 3 and the Wokingham here (twice in the frame in earlier runnings) and is an unknown quantity at present.

Began the season with a win in a 5f handicap at Doncaster (good to firm) but he ran poorly in the Shergar Cup Dash (9-2) three weeks ago and has something to find on the figures with several of these.

On a losing run but she's a dual C&D winner and she's slipped to a good mark; looked to retain ability when a close fifth at Newcastle last month and latest Pontefract fourth came in a race where the leaders never came back to her; each-way shout.
