Form & Verdict

Second on three of her last five runs, including at Musselburgh (7f, good) on Monday; surplus stamina may be no bad thing if the ground is very testing, but on recent evidence the drop back to 5f isn't an obvious plus.

Dead-heated in this race in 2021 (soft) and he's well treated on this season's best form; his fifth behind Vintage Clarets at Catterick (5f, heavy) last Saturday was a step back in the right direction but this 9yo needs another today if he's to come out on top.

Races prominently; has a tremendous record here, winning for the seventh time in July (good to soft; also won on good and soft); fine effort when a close fifth in a stronger race than this over the extended 5f here in August and he looks sure to go well in this race named after him, which he won in 2018 (eighth and seventh in two subsequent attempts).

Can hang left under pressure; returned to win the 6f handicap on this card 12 months ago (soft); even better later in the season when second to both Looking For Lynda and Vintage Clarets in big-field 5f handicaps at York before bagging one there in October; below best in his last run but that's forgiven; might well have more to offer as a 4yo.

Successful return over 6f (soft) but better form in first two 5f handicaps, chasing home Looking For Lynda over C&D (good) then again finding plenty when close second of 19 here since (good to soft) despite getting a knock inside the final furlong; up 2lb but solid chance with rain welcomed.

Some really good form in the last few months, including two wins (6f/5f, good to firm/good); won on soft going in Ireland in 2021 but he's been well beaten on such ground on two of his last three starts so has something to prove in today's conditions.
