Form & Verdict

Nothing like the force of old but kept on strongly from off the pace to exploit much reduced mark at Catterick (7f, soft) last month; not fully exposed over 7f (best known as a sprinter) and recent 2lb rise ought to be manageable.

Form & Verdict

Generally very disappointing this season but has dropped a long way down the weights and, having apparently arrested his decline, was unlucky to encounter traffic on his two recent 1m starts; should cope with this drop back to 7f and looks poised to strike soon.

Showed useful form for previous yard; 0-11 for current stable but last few efforts, most recently going close off this mark at Leicester (7f) last week, suggest his turn is near; appears to have a leading chance (due to go up 3lb from tomorrow).

Capable of smart form when trained by Charles Hills; struggled initially for this yard but there was much more encouragement off his much-reduced mark at Ayr last week (1m, good to soft), keeping on strongly having met trouble in running; can't discount now he's found his level.

Lightly raced 5yo who opened account with clearcut success at Redcar (7f, good) in June, her second handicap; hasn't really kicked on from that success but was unlucky not to finish closer to the target at Haydock (7f, good) two starts ago and didn't run badly last time; a possible.
