Form & Verdict

A maiden after 12 runs but placed twice over today's trip on turf since cheekpieces were added last month and should be fine back on Polytrack; more appealing than most of these.

Beat Lion Ring when finally off the mark over C&D last autumn (same terms today); yard in decent nick but there's nothing to suggest she's best caught fresh, so she has that to prove back from six months off.

Form & Verdict

32-race maiden; respectable sixth at Windsor (6f, good) last month, after a break, and a subsequent failed experiment over 11.4f there should not be viewed harshly; now drops back to 5f with cheekpieces refitted; not the percentage call.

Plenty of short-priced defeats to go with his sole win; has been given a short break since a couple of below-par efforts and he's landed the outside stall, going without the usual cheekpieces this time.

J: Lewis Edmunds

T: William Muir & Chris Grassick

Flopped at Chelmsford when last seen in November but had enjoyed a productive spell over 5f on AW prior to that, including a win at Chelmsford and two seconds at Lingfield; this hold-up performer is capable of bouncing back if fully primed after 162 days off.

Won an uncompetitive C&D handicap last month but had no excuses behind Mick's Spirit and Josies Kid here two weeks later; another creditable effort at Lingfield last time but more will be needed to defy this mark.

Form & Verdict

Three-time course winner (5f-6f); safely held on all three starts since returning from a break last month and, given his tendency to race too freely, it's hard to tell whether the addition of cheekpieces will aid his cause today.

All five wins have been on Polytrack at Lingfield and he went very close there (6f) 24 days ago; 2lb higher back on Tapeta but was runner-up over C&D on his penultimate run and he's strongly respected.

Five AW wins on this track, most recently when making all over C&D in October; doesn't have to lead and is perfectly capable of having a say from a double-figure stall here as he showed when going close off 4lb higher over C&D in November; still in form and can be close up.
