Form & Verdict

Far from disgraced, despite doing a bit too much up front, in a higher grade at Ascot (6f) when last seen two months ago; 5f winner at Thirsk the time before; successful over C&D on last AW appearance, taking record in this sphere to 2-4; enters calculations.

Held on narrowly from Silky Wilkie at Bath (off 3lb lower) a fortnight ago, taking record on heavy going to 2-2; doesn't necessarily need ground that deep; likely player provided he remains in similar form.

Prominent racer; now 2lb lower than for his Chelmsford win in November (5f); mixed bag since, including when only seventh at Doncaster two weeks ago (had run well in the corresponding race in 2023); tough task trying to dominate this field but he's 1-1 on heavy ground and also goes well on soft.

Four-time turf winner who opened his AW account at Wolverhampton (6f; made all) last month; came up short there since and has now been beaten three times off this career-high mark; seemingly back in the assessor's grip.

Form & Verdict

Losing spell goes back over two years but he has a largely consistent record on AW and is nicely handicapped on best form; ties in with Woolhampton on turf running (back from layoff) last time; Chelmsford form figures read 12422222; could go well.

Placed in 5f handicaps here and at Southwell in late 2023 but he could never land a blow behind a runaway winner back at Southwell five weeks ago; on a dangerous mark and likely to get the strong pace he requires.

Made it 3-4 on AW when scoring at Lingfield in October but she was vulnerable at Chelmsford (fourth of nine) in final run last year; still has scope for further progress in this sphere but all of her wins have been in Class 5 events and she needs to find more after 144 days off.

Form & Verdict

Ran well in similar event over 6f here three weeks ago, taking AW form figures to 212; sold out of Roger Varian's stable for 35,000gns since; remains unexposed in this sphere and his win came over 5f; interesting recruit for new connections and warrants respect.

Held her form well in Class 2 events on turf in September/October, most notably finishing a close second at Ascot on penultimate start; successful off only 1lb lower at the same venue on last attempt in this grade; big player provided she's just as effective back on AW.

Odds-on favourite for her Kempton debut in November (7f) and she landed the money in good style; good second in a useful novice at Haydock four weeks ago (7f, good to firm) and she doesn't look overburdened for her handicap debut; more to come and strong claims.

Scored twice at Dundalk (6f, Polytrack) last winter, but held since returning on turf in May including when eighth of ten on stable debut at Chester (7f, good to soft) last month; return to the AW may help and cheekpieces are given a go, but others look more solid.
