Form & Verdict

A winner on soft ground at Newbury last October; below his best this term but he hinted at a revival when sixth of 13 in 6f Salisbury handicap 12 days ago; cheekpieces go on now and he needs considering.

Finished third of 15 in the 2018 running; has had a stop-start year but testing conditions suit and he looked in good form when a ready winner from Hodler at Leicester 18 days ago (7f, soft; first-time cheekpieces, retained); back up 5lb; one of the more likely ones.

Scored at Chester (7f, soft) in May but he's been below par since, only fifth back at Chester (in the mud) last time; handily weighted though if getting back on track.

Acts well on soft and did really well when second of 17 to a big improver in this race last year; has tended to blow hot and cold this season but did his best work late when reunited with Ryan Sexton behind Marshal Dan at Leicester recently (7f, soft); bang there off 2lb lower than 12 months ago.

A fairly useful 7f juvenile winner but he's been off the track for 163 days since coming in last of seven in 1m Newmarket handicap; this is no easy return.

Largely progressive C&D winner; blinkered for the first time when posting an excellent fourth of 17 in 7f York handicap 24 days ago; goes well on soft ground too so he's a player off an unchanged mark with the headgear again sported.

J: Hollie Doyle

T: Edward Bethell

Lightly raced 3yo, winner of two of his three races, all of them at 7f (soft/AW); improved to score narrowly in novice at Newcastle last month, digging deep; retains potential but doesn't have an obvious chance on the figures and his pedigree casts some doubt about whether this longer trip will suit.

All eight AW wins have come over 6f/7f here; losing run up to 17, but he has twice finished runner-up over C&D since December and will find this easier than the 0-105 he contested here last time; possibilities.

Eight wins at Kempton; creditable second in Class 4 contest over C&D two months ago; however, this 9yo looks vulnerable from 4lb out of weights back up in grade and he's on a two-year losing spell.

21 months since the last of his nine wins but he's slipped down the weights and he shaped well when runner-up over C&D in December; does need to shrug off a poor run at Wolverhampton since, though.
