Form & Verdict

Won this race in 2021; he had been banging at the door prior to his comfortable all-the-way success at Goodwood last week (1m1f, soft); Simon Walker on board again and today's longer trip no problem; should make a bold bid to defy a 5lb penalty.

J: Mr Simon Walker

T: George Baker

Made all for an easy win at Goodwood (1m1f, soft) and followed up at Brighton (1m4f, good) in a race he also won two years earlier; up another 4lb for that but he gels with Simon Walker and it's hard to envisage him not having some say.

Form & Verdict

Won three 1m4f handicaps on slow ground last season; back to the same mark as for the last of them and he returned to form when second of 11 at Catterick 13 days ago; might have Eton Blue to worry about up front if usual tactics are deployed.

J: Sam Feilden

All three wins at 1m4f, on good to soft and slower ground; has gone well after short breaks although ran below market expectations on reappearance last spring; having first 1m2f run for nearly two years but proven stamina will be an asset in the conditions.

Form & Verdict

Not as good as he was but still won two handicaps over shorter for Keith Dalgleish in the spring; best effort for new yard when third of ten at Windsor three weeks ago (extended 1m3f, good to firm); slower ground no concern; each-way claims.

Breguet Boy

10st 6lb

J: Miss Brodie Hampson

T: Archie Watson

Dual-purpose performer who is not easy to predict but he recorded his eighth career win when scoring at Windsor (11.4f, heavy) in October; 5lb higher on his return but he still looks feasibly treated and has claims if he can pick up where he left off.

Form & Verdict

Two creditable efforts last month after a four-month break; has won for today's rider and he's on a competitive mark; drying ground would enhance his claims.

Placed a few times on Polytrack but all four AW wins have come on Tapeta, the latest at Wolverhampton (1m4f) last September; still 2lb higher despite six defeats since and jockey bookings suggest he may be the stable second-string.

Ended a long losing run when scrambling home in a C&D handicap 13 days ago (good); unexposed over middle distances and could have a bigger effort in him.

J: Jack Doughty

T: Tony Carroll

No issue with AW, but has done the bulk of his winning on traditional summer tracks at Bath and Brighton (1m2f-1m4f); sits 6lb above his last winning mark, and is yet to compete over 1m6f, so it's difficult to know what to expect, especially off a near four-month absence.

J: Hector Crouch

T: Tony Carroll

Won his third handicap in less than a month when doing it easily on soft ground last Monday; has no penalty for that (apprentice race) and, while this trip round here (still to win on Tapeta) is a minimum now, he holds obvious claims.
