Last run: 25 days

W: 9st 1lb

3 yo Colt

OR: 62

Form & Verdict

Has performed to a higher level in his two AW runs but he was not ideally positioned off the pace when a never-dangerous fourth over C&D 25 days ago; the cheekpieces tried there are replaced by blinkers; has run poorly in his two previous runs on ground softer than good.

Found sudden improvement with his 22-1 win in a 7f Newmarket handicap (good to soft; tongue-tie added) in late July; up 3lb but he kept on well last time and should have more to offer at this new trip; shortlisted.

Progressive 3yo who was placed on soft ground in September and bids to complete a hat-trick after two very convincing 1m AW wins last month; needs to prove his recent improvement can be transferred back to slow turf but must be considered in current mood.

0-5 but has improved since handicapping, most recently when beaten less than 2l into third of ten at Yarmouth (1m, soft) last month (winner has gone in again since); siblings include several AW winners so very much one to keep onside.

Form & Verdict

Didn't last long with Ralph Beckett despite a promising debut effort; also ran a nice first race for this yard at Leicester (7f, soft) and he was ridden more forward when faring less well at Chelmsford; could be interesting on handicap debut as rain won't harm her chances.

Respectable form over C&D in the autumn and much lower in the weights now, but she hasn't been at her best since winning on Polytrack (1m) in February and may just have gone off the boil for now.

Form & Verdict

Only fourth of six on soft ground at Ffos Las (6f maiden) and conditions were good when going down narrowly to an improving rival on his handicap debut at Chepstow (1m, good); it's too early to draw any firm conclusions on ground preferences and he has appealing form claims off just 2lb higher.

Handicapped to the hilt since winning three fast-ground handicaps during early summer but she continues to run well and again gave it her all last week at Bath (1m, good); solid chance once more, though ground softer than good to soft would spell danger.

Went up 10lb for three fast-ground wins in early summer and has generally run well off her revised mark since, usually from the front; fair chance she's able to get her own way, in which case she'll be dangerous, with the drying weather in her favour.
