Winner of four of his seven starts, most notably a front-running 7f win at Sandown off 8lb lower in June; soft ground may not have been ideal when midfield at Chester four weeks ago (Listed); drops to 6f for the first time but he has plenty of speed and the best could still be to come from him.

Smart sort who was having his first outing in handicap company when a very good third of 17 at York's Ebor meeting, finishing strongly and away from where the main action unfolded; the 7f trip (last on previous attempt as a 2yo) and AW are unknowns but that York effort suggests he can win from this mark.

Kept useful company last year, as when sixth of the 20 runners in the Commonwealth Cup; gelded in the autumn and lightly raced this term, but has run with credit in both starts as when beaten less than 2l into fifth of ten in a Group 3 at Newbury (6f, good to soft; first-time blinkers) 15 days ago; has the form to play a part from the inside stall, but may not want too much rain.

Smart AW operator in his prime and his two runs for this yard bode well for the future, latterly second in a 7f Listed event at Wolverhampton three weeks ago (his conqueror Nine Tenths runs in the 3.00); still has the pace to compete at 6f and he's one to consider, for all Danny Tudhope is on board Aberama Gold this time.

Is very useful on AW, including a 1m course handicap win last December; however, his three efforts in 2023 have been underwhelming and it remains to be seen whether this return to 7f for the first time in two years helps him to stage a revival.

The addition of a hood saw her win a good fillies' handicap at Newmarket last September and she followed that with a Listed second over C&D in November; perhaps unsuited by the drop to 5f here three weeks ago when the hood was absent; headgear returns today, along with a new tongue-tie, and she's one to consider.
