Form & Verdict

7f novice winner on the AW and confirmed his effectiveness on Polytrack when a close third back there over 1m 18 days ago; that was his first run since being gelded and in a tongue-tie; likely contender if handling this faster ground (all turf runs on slower) and breeding offers hope in that respect.

Progressive results at two and three; successful in York handicap (1m, good) most recently, taking overall record to 2-6; that form has been franked since; open to further improvement and looks appealing.

Form of ready novice win on third start last back end (7f here) is strong with the second 3-5 since (peak RPR 100) and other winners in behind; excuses can be made for defeat on his return/handicap debut (started 3-1) and he could be a different proposition now gelded; tongue-tie goes on.

Form & Verdict

Won a 7f AW novice for Sir Michael Stoute last September; modest runs the last twice but his close third to the useful Balance Play at Chester in June is good form and he might be better for being gelded; goes on all ground.

Not much luck with one thing and another last year and this mark should be within range; he was fine with 1m2f last summer, however, and this trip looks a bare minimum back from seven months off for a yard also repsonsible for two others.

Form & Verdict

110,000gns yearling who has shown a good attitude to win both starts on the AW (1m/1m2f) and this mark could be okay; imposing 3yo built to carry weight but whether he'll appreciate fast ground remains to be seen.

Record is 3-5; came up short in Newmarket Group 3 on last appearance (gelded since) but progressive otherwise and was impressive in a handicap there (1m1f, good to firm) the time before; represents a stable in great form and likely still has more to offer; remains of interest.

Unexposed colt with impressive form-figures; well suited by stepping up to 1m1f when winning C&D handicap two weeks ago by a wide margin, travelling strongly and surging clear; rain-softened ground would be an unknown (raced only on good/good to firm) but he's improving fast and well worth his place in this higher grade.

Form & Verdict

Beat 15 rivals over 7f here in July and from the front he went down narrowly in a tight finish over the 1m here 16 days ago, finishing alongside Catch The Paddy; no reason why he shouldn't be very competitive once more.

Prominent-racer who won twice last summer (7f, good to firm/good); proved his stamina for 1m when third at the York Ebor meeting; should be sharper for a reappearance run at Newmarket last month but the forecast rain is a potential issue as he's shown his form on good/good to firm (below par only start on good to soft); also drawn widest.

Prominent-racer who won twice last summer (7f, good to firm/good); close third over 1m at York last August and campaign concluded with good second here (7f); he could continue to progress this season and can make a bold bid if fully tuned up for this reappearance outing.

Yet to win but got to within a length of a subsequent winner at Haydock (1m, heavy) and he should be fine on this faster surface judged on his initial effort; not ruled out.

Seems to run his best races at this track and his latest second (nosed out Bajan Bandit) was right up there; that was his first run after a gelding operation; solid contender off 1lb higher.

Progressive 2yo; ran well for a close second at York's Dante meeting on his reappearance (7f, good); two disappointing runs followed but he has resumed his progress since July's wind op, second over 1m at York and seeing off nine rivals at Newmarket when last seen in September; 4lb higher now tackling a new surface but there could be more to come at this trip.

Maiden winner who ran poorly on his handicap debut at Chester (1m2f) but got back on track with a close third at Newcastle (1m); gelded since and Buick is booked, so one to consider.

Close third behind Starshiba and Miami Thunder in similar event over C&D when last seen ten weeks ago, doing well considering he perhaps didn't have the ideal track position; gelded since (hasn't always looked straightforward); retains low mileage and may do better still; possibilities.

Didn't need to improve on earlier efforts to win a 1m maiden at Ayr last month (made all as the 2-7 favourite); ran poorly at Chester (1m2f, good to soft) on his handicap debut four weeks ago; better than that but he needs to bounce back quickly; visor off.
