Form & Verdict

Has been waiting for quick ground (non-runner three times on softer than good in July/August) and should get it here; ran well when third over 1m6f at Goodwood in June and far from disgraced (too free) at Newbury next time; back to his last winning mark and high on the list.

Non-runner three times on softer than good in July/August; back on good going when making all and holding on by a neck at Thirsk (1m4f; Furzig third) two weeks ago; 2lb higher today but the step back up in trip should suit and he'd be a major player if he again gets the ground that suits him.

Redcar winner (1m2f, good) off 5lb higher last season and back to form when third of 11 at Carlisle (1m3f, good to firm) last week; today's trip is probably a maximum for him but he ran well on his only previous start here and has claims.

Sole 3yo; best effort when fourth of 11 at York (1m4f, good to firm) in May and he wasn't discredited when third of five at Ayr six weeks ago; will need to improve on that but he's still low mileage and it's possible.

Form & Verdict

Dual winner over 1m4f at Doncaster (good to firm) and Ripon (good) last spring; struggled on his first three starts this term but last month's third of eight at Newmarket was a clear step back in the right direction; Ryan Sexton claims a handy 3lb and a big run is likely.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 6yo; might have needed the run after over a year off when fifth of 13 in competitive event at Newbury (1m4f, good to soft) on reappearance, too free and fading; subsequently dropped 2lb and a leading contender with that outing under his belt.
