Acts on heavy; won in good style at Wincanton (extended 3m2f) in October; placed twice behind Famous Bridge here (3m1f) and ran well again when fourth of 14 to My Silver Lining in the Classic at Warwick (3m5f) on latest; having a good season but this is another hot race and she needs to find extra.

Won in good style at Wincanton (soft) in October over an extended 3m2f, the furthest she's been; good placed efforts off revised marks at Haydock (3m1f in the mud) in her two starts since but she needs to find a fair bit extra.

Looked out of sorts on final two outings last season, latterly when pulled up in major Sandown handicap contested by three of today's rivals in April, but won off today's mark at Exeter (3m, good) in February and might have been refreshed by a six-month break.

Inconsistent in recent seasons and his stamina for 3m6f on heavy ground is not copper-bottomed but he runs this track well and is well handicapped on form as recent as the autumn; can't be ruled out.

0-12 over rules fences and not yet proven over this far but shaped very much as though the run would bring him on when well-held third at Worcester last month, and has slipped to a tempting mark; interesting.

First past the post in this race in 2021 (disqualified due to interference) and 9lb lower today; this 10yo has run well in defeat on his two outings this year (3m7f/3m4f) but needs something extra in this hotter race; pulled up in this contest in 2022 and an early faller 12 months ago.

Goes well over C&D and has never won on ground slower than good to soft, so can be excused his recent failures on soft (still ran well here in February); usual tongue-tie left off with the cheekpieces tried once before reinstated; could easily go well.

Some creditable efforts in defeat since his latest win, at Kempton (3m, good; has form on soft) last February, but he's been on much the same mark all that time so it's rather doubtful whether he's well enough treated for this race; cheekpieces are added.

Form & Verdict

Back on song when collecting good prize at Doncaster (3m2f, good) in March and was commendable second in bet365 Gold Cup at Sandown (3m4f, good to soft) on final day of last season; today's 4lb higher mark ought to be manageable but his record when fresh is not compelling.
