Form & Verdict

On lengthy losing run but he's a Tapeta specialist who was runner-up over C&D on his penultimate run; didn't shine here last time but the step back up to 1m backfired and he has possibilities back at this trip; blinkers reapplied.

Form & Verdict

Odds-on winner in France (6.5f, good) on debut in August 2022; has not come close to that form in eight runs since but he's tumbled down the weights and didn't get much luck when fifth at Wolverhampton (5f, Tapeta) on his stable debut last month; now takes a big step back up in trip and he could be dangerous.

French turf winner who ran his best race for this yard when beaten less than a length into second of 11 behind a triple subsequent winner at Newcastle (7f, Tapeta) last month; didn't back it up there 15 days ago and interesting to see if the tongue-tie helps bring about a resurgence.

Form & Verdict

Her last win was off 11lb higher at Southwell (7f, Tapeta) but that was 12 months ago and she's finished down the field in her last five runs; this drop back in trip is a positive but she needs a major upturn in form; reapplied blinkers replace cheekpieces.
