Form & Verdict

Fifth on debut at Newbury (1m, soft) in April and built on that when third at Leicester (1m, good to firm) in June; returns from a break having been gelded; this Cracksman 3yo is a half-brother to a useful 1m2f Polytrack winner and he's a strong candidate now up in trip on his AW debut.

Promise on turf in the first half of 2023 and he returned from five months off to win comfortably in a novice at Wolverhampton (9.4f) and handicap at Newcastle (1m2f) at the end of last year; backward steps in his two starts since, despite prominence in the betting, the latest over 1m4f on soft at Thirsk, but the ground should not be so testing here and he's not dismissed in first-time headgear.

Form & Verdict

Well beaten on sole run this season, in a hot novice at Newmarket (1m2f, good) in April; however, he won here (8.6f) last October on his only 2yo start and retains potential for his top yard now back from a break.

Well held on turf in April but this lightly raced 3yo from a top yard has a progressive profile on AW, leading near the finish on his C&D handicap debut 31 days ago, with the reopposing Franberri back in fourth; a 2lb nudge seems unlikely to prevent another prominent showing.

Very lightly raced filly who won a pair of 1m Kempton novices last year; made solid start to her handicap career when a close third of five at Lingfield (1m, AW) in December and things didn't go her way when upped to 1m2f there (ran into trouble) last time; now switches to turf after a break but she still has potential and is respected back at this trip; tongue-tie added.

Very lightly raced filly who won a pair of 1m Kempton novices last year; beaten favourite but still made a sound start to her handicap career when close third (Dayzee a head in front in second) of five over 1m here four weeks ago; her pedigree suggests there could be more to come now stepping up to 1m2f; one of two solid contenders from last year's winning stable.

Well-related filly who shaped with some promise when fifth of ten in a Lingfield novice (1m2f, AW; 10-1) in March, but that form is not strong and she needs major improvement after 224 days off.

Won 1m novice on Tapeta in November but she didn't run much of a race back over 1m on Polytrack in January nor in first-time cheekpieces (discarded now) on Tapeta next time; guesswork involved but it's just possible she'll turn things round on her turf debut.

Won a Newcastle novice (6f, Tapeta) in November but she's not gone on from that and has finished down the field in both her handicaps (7f/1m); still lightly raced and headgear is now added but she needs to kick on again back at this trip.
