Form & Verdict

His mark continues to fall and he's posted the odd fair run this year, but he's been regressive and was well beaten last month on his first start since being gelded.

Back in good form at Newmarket last autumn and scored again at Windsor (under Sorin Moldoveanu) on reappearance, all over 1m2f; he'd fallen markedly in the weights prior to those three outings and earlier peak efforts suggest there is still plenty of mileage in his revised mark.

Acts on any going; back in good form at Newmarket (1m2f) last autumn, winning then a good second; likely player provided he continues in same vein but still needs to prove he's a spring horse.

Form & Verdict

Inconsistent and was well beaten at Windsor last month, but prior to that he was a good third at Epsom (1m2f, good to firm) and a repeat of that penultimate form would put him bang there.

From the front he conceded only late on at Newmarket (1m2f, good to firm) 12 days ago and gets in here off the same mark; his inconsistency is a drawback, however.

All three wins have come first time out (2020, 2021 and 2022) over 1m2f at Yarmouth on good to firm, making all in small fields on last two occasions; failed to repeat the feat in a much more demanding Newmarket race on this year's return, but third at Epsom on Oaks day was creditable; likely to find this race a bit too competitive.

Unable to threaten on last three starts but he's well treated on form as recent as June and perhaps the first-time blinkers will give him a boost.

Form & Verdict

Won in first-time cheekpieces (retained) at Windsor (1m, good to firm) last month and kept on well for close fourth at Wolverhampton (8.6f, AW) last time; there can be optimism that he'll be fine now back up in trip in this small field and he's a strong candidate in what looks a weak race.

Wore cheekpieces on last five outings, including wins at Windsor (1m, good to firm) on first occasion and Wolverhampton (8.6f, AW) on reappearance last month; asserted in good style when favourite in the latter, so is one to consider, but he's 8lb higher today which demands further improvement.

Did well in competitive Racing League handicaps around 1m at the end of last summer, including a win at Windsor; wasn't at his best in final two runs last season but he's been gelded since and he's now only 1lb higher than for his win; went close on his seasonal return last year and he needs watching in market after six months off.

5 yo Filly

Form & Verdict

Very lightly raced 5yo who is unproven on turf and has been below par the last twice; however, she's on a competitive mark judged on her AW form earlier this year and is a player if back on song following a break.

Lightly raced 5yo who won three of her first four starts on the AW, the latest at Southwell (1m4f, Tapeta) in February; has been mostly quiet since, though, and this looks a tough task; stable also runs Malka.
