Form & Verdict

Beaten on last 15 starts going back to last May and he wasn't at his best last time; has raced over 7f in the main this season, but he was an encouraging third of 16 off this mark at York (6f, good to soft) in July and a strong pace in this big field should see him to good effect; a possible.

Winless since October 2021; his last five victories have come on soft/heavy ground but he would have been bang there on good going over C&D in June if he'd enjoyed a clear run; very close third off this mark at Doncaster (6f, soft) last time out and he has a solid record at Ayr; likely player.

Can be slowly away, which would be costly now back down in trip, and he's done all of his winning over 7f-plus; however, a fast-run race in a big field over 6f could play to this hold-up horse's strengths, and he arrives in good form having won at Southwell (7f, AW) recently; has won here twice.

J: Andrew Mullen

T: Iain Jardine

Won three in a row at Ayr (7f, good to soft) this summer and he's held his form well with placed efforts there in his last three runs; on same mark as for his close third on heavy ground last week and he's a big player on this drop back in grade.

Won three in a row over C&D (good to soft) this summer and has run well to be placed over C&D (good to soft/soft) the last twice; solid claims.

He's been a revelation since fitted with blinkers, winning five handicaps on Tapeta this winter; better than ever when second in a 6f handicap here 12 days ago; another 2lb higher but likely to remain in form.

Back off the same mark as for the latest of two wins at Newcastle (7f, Tapeta) in November, but her five efforts in the meantime raise serious doubts as to whether she can take advantage.

Can pull hard and does most racing now over 5f but this trip is fine and he's drawn near some good pace; is capable if he gets one of his better breaks and things fall his way.

Regressive and inconsistent since missing a chunk of his career; has twice looked unlucky not to go closer of late, however, and is quite capable of popping up in a race that might be set up for him.
