Front-running C&D wins in two of her last three starts, readily accounting for her rivals eight days ago; suspicion she'll need more to defy a penalty in a race featuring other recent winners.

Never figured in higher grade on AW most recently; last three turf appearances have resulted in Scottish wins (12.5f-1m6f, good/good to soft), including here; on career-high mark but hard to dismiss.

Made good progress last season, winning three times (12.5f-1m6f), and has made the frame on both appearances this year, more recently when clear second here (1m5f, good) on Monday; will be fine over today's longer trip; must be considered.

Form & Verdict

Poor form this season until showing signs of a revival at Newcastle (12.5f, AW) five days ago; whether he builds on that effort or not, still needs to end a long drought (sole win came in 2020).

T: Ewan Whillans

Won twice on heavy ground (once over C&D) in the autumn and bumped into a big improver when well-held second at Thirsk (1m4f, heavy) three weeks ago; evidently in good nick but may not be seen to quite the same effect on this less testing ground; tongue-tie added.

Suited by testing ground as his last two wins have been on heavy, latest off 2lb lower over 2m at Catterick last October; should come on for his recent run on the AW (1m4f); an interesting contender.

Longstanding and inconsistent maiden prior to his wide-margin success in apprentice event at Thirsk (1m4f, soft) six days ago, for which he escapes a penalty; great chance off same mark, provided he backs up the form.

Belatedly off the mark with a wide-margin win at Thirsk (1m4f, soft) in the hands of William Pyle; ran a bit flat when only fourth at Hamilton after escaping a penalty and now he's 5lb higher; that Thirsk win might be dodgy form.

1m6f AW scorer for previous yard; 0-4 for new stable but showed signs of a return to form here (1m1f) last time and this step back up in distance looks a positive; possibilities off a handy mark.

Ridden with more restraint than sometimes the case when snapping a losing run over C&D three weeks ago, scoring by 2l from the reopposing Virtual Hug, who won here on Tuesday; a 4lb rise won't prevent another prominent showing if in similar form.
