Form & Verdict

4-4 in turf handicaps over 11.4f-2m1f on ground ranging from good to firm to heavy (3-3 in the visor); odds on at Salisbury (1m6f) and Carlisle (2m1f) on last two outings, last time needing some riding to come from last to first in a five-runner race but finishing well on top; that was eight days ago (penultimate win came after seven days off) and he has a 6lb penalty (due to go up another 2lb); plenty going for him.

11-race maiden but he's down the weights and was runner-up to Tarbat Ness at Ffos Las (2m, soft) on latest outing; that's two solid runs from his only two attempts over this sort of trip.

J: Henry Brooke

Often flattered to deceive on the Flat and left Hugo Palmer a 15-race maiden; heavy ground was not ideal on hurdle debut at Stratford but he was always out the back and didn't jump well.

Form & Verdict

14 months off before this season and below form; however, she rallied when third of five to Manxman at Carlisle eight days ago and makes appeal on what she showed last May/June on good or firmer, including in a run at this track.

Form & Verdict

Placed on varied ground on first three starts this season, including over 2m5f here, and back to form at Ffos Las three weeks ago when produced late on to get off the mark (2m; from Dragonball Prince) at the 15th attempt; back up 3lb but seriously considered.

Plenty of good runs over 2m last term, including a win off 5lb lower at Ffos Las in September (soft); fair run at Wolverhampton on reappearance when blinkers were tried; regular cheekpieces back on here; a possible despite drop in trip.

C&D winner; strong stayer who was winning the same Newmarket handicap (2m) for the second season in succession when narrowly scoring six weeks ago; 3lb rise shouldn't prevent another big run with a top amateur booked.
