William Dewhirst

9st 8lb

J: Andrew Breslin

T: Ben Haslam

Two wins last year, the latter off 1lb lower at Carlisle (7f, good to soft) in September; made low-key reappearance on AW last month but, after only ten runs, he remains open to further progress this season.

Sir Maxi

9st 9lb

J: Billy Garritty

T: Richard Fahey

Happiest challenging late off a strong pace and he won three times last year, including off a 1lb higher mark at Newcastle in November; likely this will be run to suit and he's one for the shortlist.

Sir Maxi

J: Oisin Orr

T: Richard Fahey

Matched best effort of the winter AW season when close third at Newcastle last time; handles soft and, although all turf wins have been on tracks with a stiff uphill finish, he can't be ruled out.

Too keen when last of 12 at Newcastle four weeks ago; handicapped to go well but the yard may have stronger claims with After John.

Selbys Pride

She made a promising reappearance when second at Newcastle last month (6f); shade disappointing over 5f at Doncaster last time but potentially well drawn and returning to Class 6 company can help.

Verdict

Selby’s Pride has been threatening off her reduced mark and can go well again, while William Dewhirst and Sir Maxi will also have their supporters. Hour By Hour should appreciate the return to 6f and he is a major player but WE’RENOTREALLYHERE looked progressive on bad ground in the spring and he’s dropped in the weights after a series of efforts on quicker ground. A return to form could be on the cards back on heavy.[Paul Smith]
