J: Freddie Gingell

Has won two of his four runs for this yard but his mark has suffered and off this figure he was beaten 16l behind Aurigny Mill at Kempton when last seen over Christmas; the first-time blinkers will need to make a difference.

Form & Verdict

Beat four rivals in this two years ago off a stone higher mark; not quite the same force as back then but was running well when last seen in the spring and likely to go well on his first run for Chris Gordon; likes to lead.

Well held at Kempton last time but this is more his scene and he won comfortably here the run before off 6lb lower, though Freddie Gordon claimed a further 7lb that day; needs respecting.

Form & Verdict

Front-runner who repelled a subsequent winner in a Plumpton maiden in February and wasn't disgraced in a Class 2 handicap at Sandown in April (soft); seems to enjoy this drier ground and he's won after a break in the past.

J: Elizabeth Gale

T: Suzy Smith

Prominent racer with a course win to his name and he was good value for his narrow winning margin under Elizabeth Gale last time at Fakenham (2m, good; 5lb lower); prior to that he was only placed in a couple of handicaps won by today's rivals and he might be vulnerable in this strong a handicap.

Consistent rather than progressive since November's Kempton win (2m, good), running to an RPR of 116 for the third time in four back there over Christmas; place claims again, all the more so on ground better than soft.

Veteran who won here (1m6f) five years ago and was in good form over hurdles last summer, winning three times; can go well fresh but is without a win on the Flat since the summer of 2020; others make greater appeal.
