Long in the tooth now and nothing like the force of old but kept on for third over C&D eight days ago and is another 2lb lower now; each-way claims at least.

Form & Verdict

Back to winning form at Carlisle (1m1f, good) 16 days ago for which he has gone up 3lb; won over hurdles in March and only beaten around half a length when fifth of eight over a similar trip to this at Musselburgh (good) on his penultimate outing; one for this shortlist.

Four-time winner, with two over hurdles and two on the Flat; creditable second over jumps at Ayr (2m) 16 days ago and he wasn't beaten far over C&D three runs back; hood is now removed but he's not ruled out back in this sphere.

Form & Verdict

Won five in a row between November 2021 and May last year and has gone close on a couple of occasions since, as when beaten a head at Wolverhampton (1m4f, AW) a fortnight ago; 2lb rise looks fair, but he could probably do with the ground drying out.

Getting no help from the assessor but his consistency is admirable; has made the frame in last 11 races, mostly on AW; close second at Windsor (11.5f, good) last month returned to turf; again appears likely to go well.

Without a win since April 2022 but has made the frame nine consecutive times, including to Ocean Heights over C&D in December; went down by only a neck at Wolverhampton on latest start three weeks ago and he's likely to be in the thick of things yet again.

Form & Verdict

Usually consistent and was in good form when completing a hat-trick over 1m-1m2f on good to soft/AW in early summer, but a lesser effort on the Newcastle AW (a surface he handles) 16 days ago; back off his last winning mark and could well figure if putting that latest effort behind him; stable also runs Can't Stop Now.

9st 10lb

J: Cam Hardie

T: Iain Jardine

Won four times on the Flat last season (once over C&D) and added two hurdle wins to his haul in February; not at best on the AW lately, though, and probably doesn't have much margin for error off current mark.

5 yo Colt

Form & Verdict

Gradually working his way back to form after returning from a long absence in July and only just lost out at Newcastle (1m4f, AW) 16 days ago; has twice finished runner-up in four vists here, but this trip on a sharp track may be an insufficient test for him now.
