Form & Verdict

As good as ever at the age of eight and he ran a cracker at Haydock on Saturday in a higher grade, pulling clear with the lightly-weighted winner (5f, soft); can back up quickly, as when winning at Hamilton in August, and he has plenty in his favour.

Multiple sprint winner who is effective on testing ground and has run well fresh in the past; however, he's an exposed 9yo and perhaps too high in the weights.

Form & Verdict

Handled testing ground when trained by Bryan Smart (ran well over C&D on soft as a 3yo); generally raced on a sounder surface for current stable, winning on good at Ayr in June; ran poorly at Yarmouth ten weeks ago but can go well fresh and he's not out of it.

Form & Verdict

Stil seeking her first win of the campaign but she has run well in defeat on several occasions, including when faced with a stiff task in Listed company at Beverley last month; 5f on testing ground no problem and she should find this being run to suit.

Goes well at the track and he ran right up to his best when second over 6f here last week, finding only a useful and progressive filly too strong; runs off the same mark and looks booked for another big run.

J: Shane Kelly

Last two wins over 6f and he could have done without the drying weather over this easy 5f; will be happier back on turf but there's no wiggle room off this mark and he didn't offer a lot on his Chelmsford comeback.

Consistent on turf last year including a win at Doncaster (6f, good); off five months and can go well fresh, but well held in three goes on the AW and not sure a fast 5f like this is ideal.

Progressive on AW over the winter and he's carried the good work onto turf this summer, winning handicaps at Wetherby and Beverley (both slower than good); off for 81 days prior to his fourth at Beverley last week (stiff task) and he's one to take seriously with that run behind him.
