Form & Verdict

Now 2-2 on turf (both 1m, soft), having again made all back in the hood early last month; hard to know what happened on Tapeta in between (beaten before stamina became an issue) but he's lightly raced and one to consider upped 6lb.

Has progressed well all summer, making it 3-4 in the cheekpieces at Haydock last weekend; dam has produced a winning stayer, which gives hope today's longer trip will be within range, and he's shortlisted.

J: Jason Watson

T: Darryll Holland

Scored four times around 1m in 2023 and enhanced his good strike-rate on turf when getting on top towards the finish on last week's 1m Pontefract reappearance (soft); good second over C&D last autumn; a 5lb penalty demands another career best but no surprise were he to find it; on the shortlist.

Patchy for Ed Walker, from whom he was picked up for 25,000gns in July after winning an ordinary soft-ground novice; will find life tougher back into handicap company after three months off.

Signed off for Ed Walker with breakthrough success in 1m Thirsk novice last June; gelded/off six months and not disgraced for his current yard when sixth in 1m2f Newcastle handicap 23 days ago, fading last 1f; he can take a step forward.

Won a Thirsk novice (1m, soft) for Ed Walker last summer and third of seven in a handicap at Chester (1m2f, good to soft) on stable debut in September, but out of his depth in a 0-105 at Haydock on final outing; makes AW debut after 191 days off having been gelded in the meantime; market informative.

Dual heavy-ground winner last autumn who's progressed again this year, the race not panning out her way over 1m4f here when last seen at the May meeting; could yet be capable of better back from a summer break.

Hasn't progressed this year but this is a touch easier again down another 2lb and being back on to softer ground should suit; Jason Hart 1-2 for the yard to date.

Unable to threaten on last three starts but he's well treated on form as recent as June and perhaps the first-time blinkers will give him a boost.

J: Jason Hart

Regressive for Hugo Palmer last year, in various aids, and struggled badly following wind surgery; Jason Hart is a positive booking after six months off, albeit he's 0-8 for the yard, so she's worth a market check down in trip on Tapeta debut.

Showed promise on soft ground during light 2yo campaign and she's well treated judged on her first two handicap runs this April/June; however, her form has gone the wrong way since and the first-time visor (replacing cheekpieces) needs to prompt a dramatic turnaround.
