Form & Verdict

0-14 and her form has been patchy thus far, but she could be given a chance if repeating her third of seven in a 0-60 handicap at Chelmsford (1m, Polytrack; first-time cheekpieces) this month.

J: Dougie Costello

T: Ian Williams

Bounded clear over C&D to exploit a career-low mark (8lb lower) last month; while that effort has been handsomely advertised by the runner-up Big Narstie, she herself fluffed her lines when a beaten favourite at Newcastle (7f); a tongue-tie is now added.

Form & Verdict

Has improved since blinkered, including a comfortable success in a 0-50 classified event here (7f) last month; finished third of nine in a 0-65 handicap at Southwell (1m, Tapeta) on Thursday where his tendency to hang left was again evident, but that was still a good effort in the context of this race; respected.

Kept busy but he found a sharp finish when winning over 1m at Newcastle then 7f here this month; failed to pick up in the same way back at Newcastle since but a strong pace would suit and respected on the earlier form.

Bang-in-form 6yo who bids to complete hat-trick after recent wins here (1m) and at Southwell (7f); still well handicapped on older form and some of his 5lb penalty is offset by Frederick Larson's claim; commands respect.

T: Michael Appleby

Three-time 7f winner who's proved consistent since the blinkers went on and won with a good bit in hand at Newcastle (1m) on Friday evening; would hold leading claims if turned out again in same form under Rossa Ryan, who has a good record for the yard.

Form & Verdict

Currently on a roll and came from well back when defying a penalty in a 0-50 classified event over C&D a week ago; this will be harder back in a handicap, but he is still taken very seriously in his bid for the four-timer.

Three-time Dundalk winner who made a successful stable debut in a 0-50 classified event at Catterick (7f, good) last August; out of the frame in four starts since and returns from three months off, but is proven fresh; worth a second look back down in grade.

Out of the frame in all five starts in Ireland over 5f-7f and not guaranteed to appreciate the longer trip on breeding, but Rossa Ryan an interesting booking and worth a market check; has worn a tongue-tie and hood before, but not together.
