Form & Verdict

Can miss the break and pull hard (often wore a hood for previous yards) but is back on his last winning mark after a luckless effort here last time; will want a good test down from 1m but has claims if getting one.

Two wins over C&D in a busy schedule since November, but not at his best the last twice and needs to get back on track; needs a good pace to aim at.

Two Newcastle wins this winter and he's also run well at this track; not so good last time but he will benefit from today's drop in class and has the ability to feature off this mark.

Ripon specialist who's been on the downgrade this year; is on a career-low mark and arrives in form for a yard going well but it's been a long time since he ran at beyond sprint trips and this is just his second ever start on the AW.

Regressive maiden who runs over a trip this short for the first time, minus headgear again; hasn't had much luck with the draw lately and is on an attractive mark back on Tapeta, so a better effort wouldn't surprise.

Both wins were gained during the winter, including when dead-heating over C&D in December; just under a length behind Beau Gars when fourth of eight back here 12 days ago and may find one or two too good again.

No problem with heavy ground for the first time when off the mark three weeks ago; is a half-brother to three Tapeta winners and there can't be any complaints about a 2lb rise.

Stays much further and was suited by the strong pace when easily winning a 0-52 over C&D a month ago; had blown the start (anticipated the stalls opening) when below-par previously and will be popular but this is tougher upped a hefty 10lb.
