4 yo Colt

Form & Verdict

Has only won on the AW but lightly raced on turf and he was well backed when a closing fifth in a higher grade at Newcastle nine days ago (1m4f); down in class here and this far is worth a go.

Form & Verdict

In good enough form to win three times last year from 1m4f to 1m6f but 2023 is turning into a damp squib unless he turns things around sharpish.

J: Aiden Brookes

T: Micky Hammond

Has generally struggled since his C&D win in December 2022 but he was runner-up at Thirsk on his penultimate run last season and he now returns to Tapeta off a very dangerous mark; yard is in decent form and he needs checking in market on return.

Form & Verdict

Doesn't take after his half-brother Coltrane (top stayer) but he was unlucky not to shed his maiden status last time (2m, good) and it's still early days after seven runs.

Yet another good run in defeat at Thirsk (1m6f, good) but he's still to win a race and can take plenty of driving; all best form is on good or good to soft.

Had three of these behind when back to winning form over C&D in January and again ran well when beaten half a length into second of ten back here last month; up another 1lb but likely to go well again.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 3yo; no match for the winner when raised to 1m4f at Catterick (novice) but he did chase home the right horse and could improve again for going 1m6f on handicap debut.
