Form & Verdict

His 2yo form offers hope that this mark is in range but he's not kicked on at three after a promising return in May; drop in class and return to 7f need to spark a revival.

Choicely bred but he's beginning to look exposed, beating just one rival in 6f handicap at Windsor when last seen in June; cheekpieces return today, replacing blinkers; others have less to prove.

Four-time C&D winner, including this race 12 months ago and a defeat of stablemate Secret Strength 17 days ago; another big run looks on the cards but he will need a career best to defy this mark.

J: Paddy Bradley

Four most recent wins over 7f at Epsom (on good and good to firm) and has been kept to downhill tracks for his last six starts; has handled soft ground but whether he can come up with the Epsom goods on this very different track remains to be seen.

Form & Verdict

Poor strike-rate for one of his ability but he did manage to put his head in front at Newbury in June (7f, good to firm); ran into trouble at a crucial stage when second to stablemate Marlay Park here 17 days ago, picking up well when in the clear; each-way claims again.

Odds-on when winning a 1m maiden at Newcastle on his stable debut in January; string of good runs at 7f-1m since and he's likely to be in the thick of the action once again.

Just one win from 14 starts but he's been placed in his last four handicaps and didn't get much luck in a Racing League event at Windsor (1m, good to firm) three weeks ago; on same mark as for that close third and he's respected.

Always to the fore when defying a 2lb lower mark at Chepstow in June; in and out since and he needs to leave a quiet effort at Chester behind him; placed in three of his four runs at Epsom so that's quite possible.

Often leads; one of his three 7f wins came on soft (the others on good to firm) but questionable whether testing ground brings out the best in him and others more likely to be suited by the conditions.

This season's two wins have come over this trip; comes here on the back of two runner-up finishes at around 1m; edging back up the weights but should make a bold bid.

Won twice last year for Tom Ward, short-headed on reappearance for new yard and career-best form to win on latest outing; the last two of those runs were 1m on Kempton AW but there's no great worry about his return to turf and he needs respect.

0-20 since his winning debut; runner-up off this mark at Chelmsford in August (7f) but less good at Kempton 25 days ago; others appeal more in this line-up.

Front-runner; sprung an 80-1 surprise over C&D last June; last three runs have all been disappointing, latterly his return to action behind Marlay Park 17 days ago; too much to prove.
