6 yo Gelding

OR: 79

Form & Verdict

Consistent over 1m this term and shapes as if he's worth another crack at further; however, whether he can defy top weight over 1m2f on forecast slow ground is questionable; non-runner at Hamilton Monday.

Stays further and offered more last time (8.6f, Wolverhampton) from a wide stall in a race not run to suit; is back on his last successful mark (turf) and has won over C&D, so has a fair bit in his favour.

Form & Verdict

Three starts in France included 1m1f success at Longchamp (soft); beaten only 2l in Redcar handicap (1m2f, good) on British debut; with such low mileage he's still open to further progress; interesting.

All of his nine wins have come on turf but he's held his form since his last success at Ayr (1m2f) in September and has run well here (1m2f/7f) in last two starts; this big step back up in trip is a positive and he shouldn't be far away.

His last three wins have come here (1m/1m2f, good to firm/good) and he ran pretty well when fourth of eight over C&D last Tuesday (soft; Ayr Poet a short head in front in third); drops back in grade today and could be in the mix if suited by the first-time visor (replacing usual cheekpieces).

Form & Verdict

Multiple winner at Ayr, though has a modest strike-rate in the last three years and had the run of the race when gaining his most recent success (in August); subsequent results not persuasive.

Seven course wins, most recently when gamely making all over this trip last August; out of form on AW when last seen in autumn, though, and does not have a good record when fresh.

Form & Verdict

Had a long spell of consistent form that included five wins (Flat/hurdles); however, last two efforts (modest fourth latest) represent a dip and suggest he is perhaps going off the boil; others preferred.

Form & Verdict

Consistent and steadily progressive in Class 6 handicaps this term, winning three times, most recently in apprentice event at Beverley (1m2f, soft) last week; now upped two grades but avoids a penalty and receives plenty of weight all round; has to be feared.

Three handicap wins last season and today's trip and ground won't be a concern; still looks to have some mileage in his mark but back from a 220-day absence perhaps not the time to catch him.

Mixed results in five novice events, no match for the winner at Lingfield (1m2f, AW) most recently; switch to handicap level may suit but it's not totally clear whether she's worth current mark.
