Got up in the final strides at Pontefract (1m4f) in June; mixed results at 1m3f-2m in cheekpieces since; well beaten on latest outing and doesn't look a particularly solid option in the retained headgear back on AW.

Form & Verdict

Brother to former stablemate Temporize, who is one of his rivals tonight; raised 7lb for heavy-ground win at Haydock (1m6f; made all) last month and that form is open to question; however, two attempts on AW (beaten narrowly; won comfortably) have been promising and he's unexposed in this sphere; hard to rule out.

Tapeta winner who proved his stamina when bolting up from the front at Haydock (1m6f, heavy) last September; has made the frame in both starts since, albeit the extended 2m appeared to find him out here last time; has fitness to prove after four months off, but still respected back down to Class 4 level.

Brother to Cool Party, who is one of his opponents in this field; well beaten in the Cesarewitch 11 days ago; progressive results otherwise for current yard, notably a 2m4f success at Glorious Goodwood two starts ago, and may bounce back; has form over C&D and not dismissed.

T: Syd Hosie

Edged out by Grand Providence at Doncaster on final start for Charlie Johnston; justified favouritism in the 2m4f event at Glorious Goodwood (soft) ten weeks ago when last seen; 2023 campaign demands plenty of respect but the notable negative is his 7lb rise since Goodwood.

Form & Verdict

Showed promise here last November on sole AW attempt; turf form this year includes two wins over middle distances and, most recently, a solid third in the 1m6f Melrose at York (race has thrown up several winners since); may well rate higher still; respected upped further in distance.

Made it 2-4 in handicaps when winning at Newbury (1m4f, good) last month and soft ground may not have suited at Glorious Goodwood; he's just the type his trainer excels with and the step up in trip could prompt further progress, with half-brother Forza Orta having won over 2m here on Wednesday.

Course winner (1m3f) who scored twice at Musselburgh (12.5f) last year; ran well off similar marks to this afterwards, but although he has run with credit when fresh in the past he should be sharper for this first run in eight months; all Flat wins on good/good to firm.

Often front-runner; excellent form figures since headgear went on in June, but they were somewhat dented nine days ago by his Kempton AW sixth of seven when attempting 2m for the first time; scored by wide margin on heavy at Chester (1m6f) three starts back, so not totally dismissed.

Fairly useful filly over middle distances and still has low mileage; fresher than most, having raced only twice this term, and pedigree suggests she's worth a crack at this new trip; latest effort signalled a return to form; both wins on AW; interesting.
