Form & Verdict

C&D winner off 4lb lower in November; runner-up in two of his five starts since, most recently chasing home Bobby Joe Leg two weeks ago; can pull so the prospect of a tactical event dampens enthusiasm.

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.

Form & Verdict

Two 7f wins at Wolverhampton this winter; only went down by a short head at Southwell when upped to 1m 18 days ago; 2lb higher but the drop back in trip is a plus and this strong traveller has the speed to take advantage if this becomes tactical.

Took advantage of a drop in the weights when winning a C&D handicap four weeks ago (well placed; hooded for the first time); that was his first attempt at this trip and he could yet fare better; 4lb rise not excessive.

First win for Alice Haynes came at Newcastle in January (7f; hooded for the first time); creditable effort back at Newcastle one month later before a low-key run on slow turf last month; should get a good pace to aim at now back at 6f; not discounted.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark for this yard when gaining a last-gasp 6f success at Kempton in November; placed in two of his three runs since and on the same mark as for latest second at Chelmsford; shapes as though he should relish 7f but his earlier runs over this trip aren't convincing.

Admiral D

T: Richard Fahey

Only 1lb higher than for his win in a valuable 6f handicap at Kempton in November; ran well for second at Chelmsford on his penultimate start and easy to strike a line through his latest 7f run here when new tactics were deployed; style of racing means he needs a strong pace but that's quite possible here and he needs serious consideration.

Form & Verdict

Veteran but in the form of his life this year, completing a four-timer when getting the better of Star Zinc here two weeks ago; 4lb higher now stepping up in grade but he's uncomplicated and his rider's 7lb claim is a bonus; should make another bold bid.
