Form & Verdict

Questionable what he achieved behind the now much-improved Sweet William in a 1m4f novice at Doncaster and especially having since come up well short on his handicap debut at Newmarket (1m4f, good; behind Edge Of Darkness); returns off an untouched mark and there are doubts about him on soft ground (ran moderately on debut); blinkers replace cheekpieces worn the last twice.

Questionable what he actually achieved behind the now much-improved Sweet William (now BHA-rated 103) in a 1m4f novice at Doncaster (good to firm; first-time cheekpieces) but clearly of strong interest with nothing of that calibre to contend with on his handicap debut.

Form & Verdict

Brother to Oaks winner Talent and was only a length away on his switch to handicaps at Newbury (1m4f, good); this longer trip is highly likely to benefit him and he was suffering from an irregular heartbeat when pulled up on his only previous run on soft.

J: Charles Bishop

Seven-race maiden but he's been on the premises on last four starts, including in 1m6f handicaps on soft ground on last two occasions; well capable of being bang there once again if straight back at that level on reappearance.

Form & Verdict

Two wins last year for Chris Wall (1m2f/1m6f, AW/good to soft) and she's 2-3 for this yard following clearcut back-to-back wins in May, latterly defying a penalty at long odds-on; good record when fresh eases concerns over her absence but she's 13lb higher than last time, so will need to maintain the momentum; goes on soft.

Won over 11.5f on good to soft here three runs back; at least matched that effort when runner-up over 1m6f at Sandown before finishing midfield at Kempton (2m); wasn't beaten far last time and RPR was okay; respected.

Prominent-racer who brought up his hat-trick in decisive fashion at Newmarket in August (1m4f, good; also won on soft); struggled since following a 6lb rise but in strong Class 2 handicaps; could easily go well.

Had threatened before winning for the first time over C&D (good to soft) in August; never involved after a slow start on the Kempton AW since but the chances are he's still in form.

Underwent wind surgery in September and showed the benefit when getting the better of Aqwaam at Lingfield in October (1m5f); the tables were turned at Chelmsford last month though and he may have to give best to his old rival once again.

Form & Verdict

Weakened on his only previous start over this far but perhaps failed to give his running then as Newcastle next time (1m4f) was a lot better; worth another go over this far.
