Form & Verdict

Brushed aside Storm Valley at Wolverhampton (9.5f; same terms) in January; successful twice since, including in a 1m2f apprentices' handicap at Chelmsford on Saturday; escapes a penalty (due a 4lb rise), so remains eligible for this 0-55 grade; stays 1m4f; obvious chance.

Four wins over the winter included a C&D success under George Bass when Mc'Ted was fourth, but he's been kept busy and last week's well-held sixth at Southwell was somewhat underwhelming; needs to bounce back.

Form & Verdict

Dual course winner (1m4f; from similar marks) in 2023; found trouble when finishing third (beaten 3.75l) to Bletchley Storm over C&D just over a fortnight ago, so it isn't beyond the realms of possibility that he can reverse those placings on 5lb better terms.

Form & Verdict

Maiden (0-12); placed over 7f at Lingfield in January but hasn't kicked on positively since, and has only limited experience beyond a mile; stamina reserves are questionable; far safer options lie elsewhere.

Form & Verdict

Struggles to win (1-33) but consistent in recent times, twice finishing runner-up over 1m6f (here latterly, and at Wolverhampton previously); dropping back in distance a slight question mark, but the introduction of cheekpieces could feasibly assist with unlocking the door.

Form & Verdict

Keen when finishing down the field behind Storm Valley at Kempton (penultimate start); rattled home to get off the mark over C&D (12-1; Bond Spirit third) subsequently, capitalising on a career-low mark; 4lb higher, so interesting to see if she's capable of backing up.

One of her best efforts when third of 14 over C&D in September but has bobbed in and out of form since and hasn't shone in her two starts for new yard; it's just possible she'll do better here now reunited with Dylan Hogan who rode her in September; market can guide.

Form & Verdict

In decent fettle on turf last summer, the highlight being winning the Ladies' Derby at Epsom (1m4f, good to soft) in July; absent since finishing third at that same venue in October, and it remains to be seen if he's able to make the most of a 15lb lower AW mark (1-26 AW) on return.
