Form & Verdict

0-7; best effort came when placed in a Doncaster novice (6f, soft) earlier in the year; has fallen in the weights (by 9lb) since introduced to handicapping, but his latest effort - fifth of 13 over 1m here - was more encouraging; dropping back in trip could further assist.

A fair 7f winner but he failed to build on reappearance promise when fifth of eight in 7f Southwell handicap in February; he needs to bounce back after a break.

Ended last season with a 7f success at Newcastle (first handicap attempt at the trip; maiden previously); creditable fourth over same C&D on reappearance; may have more to offer at this distance and warrants respect off unaltered mark.

Form & Verdict

Reliable since gelded (form figures 223421); had worn headgear for most of those starts, but that was absent when breaking the maiden at Wolverhampton (7f; runner-up Merry Secret runs in the 6.30) last time; a subsequent 2lb rise looks fair so he should be there or thereabouts.

Form & Verdict

Finally snapped a barren sequence at Catterick (7f classified stakes, good to soft) last month, but appears to have gradually lost his way since; AW record reads 1-12, so it is debatable as to whether he truly relishes artificial surfaces; safer options lie elsewhere.

Notched a hat-trick at Ayr (6f, good to soft/soft) in July, showing immediate progress for the fitting of blinkers; ran okay at Hamilton (fourth) last time, and sits just 2lb above her last winning mark; no issues with this artificial surface, but is limited in terms of experience over 7f.

Three wins from 22 starts, the most recent coming over 1m at Redcar (from a 5lb higher mark) in May; less convincing since and returns to the AW for the first time since competing on the old Fibresand surface at Southwell in April 2021; capable over 7f, but other risks attached.

Three wins on turf (6f-1m), the latest coming when just doing enough at Redcar (1m Class 6, good to firm; 8-1) last May; lacks much in the way of AW experience (0-2), and could potentially need this off the back of a 179-day absence; stablemate of Shotley Royale.

Still seeking his first win (0-7); raced prominently and only headed late on when fourth of 13 over C&D last month; dangerous to dismiss with Paul Mulrennan retaining the ride, but does need to find a fraction more to break the duck.

Seven-race maiden; has shown glimpses of ability, namely when fourth in a first-time visor at Musselburgh (7f, good) on penultimate start; it is possible that he found his next run at Ripon coming a shade too soon; blinkers are now the headgear of choice from this falling mark.
