Won a Doncaster novice in July 2022 but that was a three-runner race and he didn't progress in middle-distance handicaps last year; now 12lb below his opening mark but he has something to prove after 177 days off; has been gelded.

J: Dougie Costello

Last year's novice form included 1m4f win; has failed to progress in middle-distance handicaps this season but he's had a break since his last run in June and may be capable of better off this reduced mark (10lb lower than reappearance).

Form & Verdict

0-12 on turf for Tim Easterby but 4-4 on the AW since joining this yard with a tongue-tie enlisted, all over 1m4f at Wolverhampton and none by more than half a length; up another 5lb, but still has to be feared if as effective here.

Has been plying his trade at a lower level but he only narrowly failed to bring up the five-timer at Southwell (1m4f; four previous wins at Wolverhampton); raised 4lb for that latest defeat and has to prove he can do it on Polytrack.

J: Daniel Tudhope

Has proved a revelation since the tongue-tie went on, making it 3-3 over C&D when scoring by a nose a fortnight ago; did well to win that having taken a keen hold and he may get more of a pace to aim at this time; much respected up another 3lb.

Newcastle winner (1m2f, Tapeta) in the summer of 2022 who has finished unplaced in four starts since returned to the AW in November, but she is back off her last winning mark and has won over this far on turf, so possible to make a case.

Dual winner over shorter trips around here and won five times at around 1m4f on the AW early last year; 10lb lower than for the most recent, but hasn't been in the same form since and attempts this far for the first time on his 36th Flat start; enough to prove.
