Form & Verdict

Unlucky not to be closer when fourth to Silver Samurai at Newmarket (6f, good) before failing to fire returned to 7f at Kempton, a track he runs well; on too good a mark to discount with ease.

Form & Verdict

Had come a fair way down the weights this year before coming good again in the handicap for greys at Newmarket (6f, good) a month ago, for which he's gone back up 5lb; should be fine with that and, while it's been a while since he ran beyond 6f, this far hasn't troubled him in the past.

Sole success in last 13 outings came in the 6f handicap for greys at Newmarket in August; just third of seven off his revised mark at Sandown (7f) next time and others appeal as likelier winners.

Form & Verdict

Won five on the bounce at Yarmouth last season and this year has bagged two more, over 7f on the AW and 6f back at Yarmouth; didn't run at all badly last time at Newmarket, a track that hadn't seen her to best effect on previous visits; hard to rule out.

Multiple wins include one over C&D (from two attempts; close second in the other); fair efforts on latest two turf starts and although she never showed up at Kempton recently she can't be ruled out back here.

Form & Verdict

Three of her four wins have come over 7f so it was an excellent run behind an unexposed improver when second of 12 over Windsor's 6f 20 days ago; had looked on a tough mark until then but can clearly win races off this figure.

Form & Verdict

Has done a lot of his racing at 1m but dropping back to 7f was no issue when dead-heating on soft ground at Doncaster two starts back (second run in cheekpieces); fine under these conditions and remains on a workable mark if able to bounce back from a poor one at Chepstow.

Largely progressive at two and three; however, hasn't done quite so well this year and his July success (7f, soft) came in a lower grade, sharing the spoils; balance of 2023 form suggests he'll come up well short.

Form & Verdict

Ten wins in all, including two last year over 7f; blew out at Royal Ascot but beaten in the region of 5l in his four other starts this year, all strong Class 2 handicaps; a tendency to start slowly (especially of late) isn't helping matters but not dismissed.
