Form & Verdict

Enjoying a good campaign and he was first past the post at York (7f, soft) last Friday only to be demoted due to interference; went very close over C&D (good to soft) in July and he's a key player up 3lb for last time.

Two 6f wins last season, making all on heavy ground at Catterick in October off 2lb lower; having his first run at a bare 5f and likely he'll come on for this.

J: Joe Leavy

Has enjoyed a good campaign and gained compensation for being demoted to second at York (7f) when making all in the mud at Catterick (6f) last month; faded out of it at Doncaster a couple of weeks ago but he's capable of bouncing back; won here earlier in his career.

Form & Verdict

Won at Ayr (6f, good to soft) in July and back on the scoresheet at Chester (7f, heavy) last month; again ran well when fifth at Ayr (6f, heavy) last Thursday, when making swift headway from the back of the pack before fading on, and perhaps that performance can be upgraded; he's one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Something to prove regarding current form but he's dropped down the weights and his form figures at Catterick read 2131, with the latest win over C&D on soft; he's a contender if staging a revival now back here.

Well treated on even this summer's best form but he's not fired the last twice and he'll need more if he is to better his 2020 second in the corresponding race.

His last four wins have come at Ripon (6f, soft/good), the latest last month; he's better than he showed at York most recently but it remains to be seen how he fares on his first visit here.
