Form & Verdict

Redcar specialist (six wins there) who sits 3lb below his last winning mark; ran a solid race when runner-up to the subsequent Wolverhampton scorer Painters Palette on penultimate start, but wasn't quite on song at Beverley (8.5f) subsequently; remains fairly treated but others appeal more.

Contesting this race for the fifth successive year, winning it 2018 and 2019; no better than sixth in the last two runnings but wouldn't be without hope if reproducing his penultimate run at Chester when prevailing comfortably.

Goes particularly well at Redcar but is able elsewhere as he showed when winning easily last week at Chester under Emily Roberts; a 5lb rise isn't beyond him at all.

Form & Verdict

Mainly consistent, winning at Beverley (7.5f, soft) and Haydock (7f, good to soft), but did weaken tamely off this revised mark back at Haydock last Friday, which raises some concerns; has run well on both of his previous visits to Chester, including when third to Muntadab in September 2021.

Form & Verdict

Peak form is on good/good to firm, but also handles soft; usually goes well at Thirsk, although set himself a tough task there last weekend (7f) when fluffing the start; he did well to recover to finish a close third, so has to enter calculations.

Form & Verdict

Pinged the gates to make all on his final start for Keith Dalgleish at Musselburgh (7f, good; from a 2lb lower mark) in June; returned to that level of form on his last two starts - Pontefract (6f) and Carlisle (7f) - and placed on his only previous visit to Chester (C&D); merits respect.

Unraced on Polytrack since 2021 but has won on this surface, and has largely been consistent on Tapeta since ready win off 2lb lower at Wolverhampton (7f) in January; will drawn to seize a good early position today and Joe Leavy claims a useful 5lb; might be the answer.

Form & Verdict

Veteran of 94 races (16 wins, including over C&D in September 2021); showed up positively for much of the contest until weakening inside the final furlong at Thirsk (seventh of 12; Ey Up Its The Boss third) last weekend; dangerous to completely discount.

Form & Verdict

Isn't the easiest to predict but has won three times in 2023, including latterly in a tight finish to a Class 6 amateur jockeys' handicap at Thirsk (6f, good; 25-1); is yet to prove stamina reserves beyond 7f, and faces a tough task from 10lb out of the handicap.

Form & Verdict

Yet to win on turf (0-7), with all three wins coming on the AW (5f-7f; Chelmsford and Wolverhampton); has worn blinkers for his last three starts, including when simply doing too much too soon at Ayr (7f, good; sixth of eight) last time; this sharp track may suit and he is well drawn to attack.
