Won easily at Newcastle (2m, Tapeta) in October when wearing cheekpieces for the first time (retained since); hasn't run badly the next twice but needs to better those performances if he's to return to winning ways.

The last three (1m4f/2m) of his four wins have been here on the AW, which he's not tried since March; placed in the first two of his three turf outings last month and not disgraced on latest; interesting back on AW.

Five-time course winner, three of them over tonight's trip, latterly off 2lb lower last month; hit traffic in a messy affair at Wolverhampton latest and, while a bigger field would have been ideal (is usually dropped in and can pull), he's shortlisted.

Form & Verdict

Three wins in a row this August/September on the AW tracks at Southwell (1m3f, Tapeta), Chelmsford (1m5f) and Lingfield (2m); had just built up some momentum when running out of room back over 1m4f here on latest start, looking in good form still; major player.

Returned to winning ways when comfortably accounting for ten rivals in a 2m handicap at Kempton in September (Class 6); not so good since but he's feasibly weighted should this be one of his good days.

Form & Verdict

Generally in fine form early this year, winning over hurdles at Catterick in February followed by three wins (one here) over 2m on Tapeta; creditable third of five on turf in May when last seen; the layoff asks a question but he has a competitive mark and his trainer did win this race in 2021 and 2022.

Form & Verdict

Serial slow starter; all three wins have been at this track (from five visits, also runner-up once) this year; latest was just one week ago in fine style over 1m4f and she looks well treated under a penalty; not proven beyond that and has never raced beyond 1m5f but can't be ruled out after such an impressive win.

All four wins have come over 1m2f/1m4f around here, the latest from 2lb lower in November; finished behind three of these when fourth of nine over C&D in January, but appeared to be undone by a lack of pace there; capable of playing a part if this pans out more in her favour back from a 51-day break.

0-8; beaten a neck over 1m4f at Pontefract (good) on seasonal/handicap debut but has not repeated the form; needs better again if she's to win this in her second AW handicap; tried 2m2f (after 1m6f) on latest start.

Form & Verdict

Completed a hat-trick on turf in the summer of last year; also won over hurdles this May but has not fired since and was pulled up on latest start; all ten wins have come on good ground or firmer but most of his six AW runs were off higher marks; either way, a big revival is needed.

14 months off before this season and below form; however, she rallied when third of five to Manxman at Carlisle eight days ago and makes appeal on what she showed last May/June on good or firmer, including in a run at this track.
