Form & Verdict

His sole success came back in 2022 and he's been beaten 8l or more in his last three runs; mark is tumbling but he needs to turn things around in new headgear.

Has improved for the fitting of a hood, just getting the better of a subsequent winner over C&D in February and finishing third off this mark at Lingfield (1m4f, Polytrack) and Doncaster (1m2f, soft; first-time tongue-tie); high on the list.

Heavy-ground winner as 2yo; didn't have a great 3yo season but he took advantage of weights drop when winning at Chelmsford last month (1m2f) in a first-time hood; fair third over 1m4f since but perhaps the return to 1m2f back on turf will suit with refitted tongue-tie added.

Went close on her handicap debut at Kempton (1m, Polytrack) in December but she's finished ahead of just one rival in three subsequent runs; record now stands at 0-7 and she has plenty to prove at this new trip.

Twice showed some ability on turf to start her career, on nothing like this ground though; AW since, including two seconds before breaking her duck in a handicap at Chelmsford last month (second run upped to 1m2f, ran well in both); left Andrew Balding for 10,500gns 11 days ago; back up 3lb but this ground poses the big question.

Form & Verdict

Dual-purpose performer who is not easy to predict but he surged clear at Wolverhampton (9.4f, Tapeta) in November and got back near his best with a strong-finishing second there (8.6f) last month; that was in a bunch finish but he's on the same mark here and is respected back up in trip.

Form & Verdict

Recorded his fourth Tapeta win when scoring at Newcastle (1m2f) last month and he didn't get the breaks on his return visit 11 days ago; has claims if he can recapture his penultimate form but he's had only one run on Polytrack and that was a modest effort.

Better known as a Tapeta specialist, though having met trouble he finished only a length behind Awtaad Prince when fourth of nine over C&D in February; again ran into trouble when third of ten at Newcastle (1m2f, Tapeta) three weeks ago; drawn wide but still a player granted a bit more luck.

Form & Verdict

All four wins have come at this track and latest was off 3lb higher over C&D last February; couldn't pose a serious threat in a tactical race here last time but that was still a respectable effort over 7f and he looks interesting on this big step back up in trip.

Was 3-5 in 1m2f turf handicaps between October 2022 and last June (including on good to soft; acts on soft); in good form on Tapeta for new yard, winning over 1m4f and close second at Wolverhampton (about 1m1f) this month; looks sure to go well back on turf in refitted cheekpieces.

Well handicapped on his best form last year but he's a frequent slow starter who has not won since 2022 and has been well held in his last eight runs; had a wide trip at Wolverhampton last time and cheekpieces now return but he comes with risks attached.
