Form & Verdict

Lightly raced gelding who kicked off his handicap career with a win on heavy ground at Catterick (6f; hood removed) last Wednesday; has a penalty but he hit a clear personal best with that comfortable success and is open to more improvement; leading contender.

Form & Verdict

Made a good start for this yard when landing a Kempton nursery (6f, AW) in the autumn and she was a respectable fourth at Lingfield in February; returns after another break but she had form on slow ground for Richard Hannon last summer and another good run could be on the cards.

C&D nursery winner off 2lb lower in first-time blinkers last autumn; inclined to hang left on her Lingfield comeback and was well below market expectations on turf latest, which leaves her with something to prove.

Ex-Richard Hannon; 6f looks her trip and in two runs under Hollie Doyle she's won an AW nursery and last time finished close up at Lingfield; returning to turf won't trouble her at all.

Form & Verdict

Signed off in the autumn with two promising novice runs, but he was biggish price for his handicap debut at Chelmsford (6f, AW; first run since gelded) two weeks ago and finished tenth of 12; still unexposed but he has something to prove after that last run and others are preferred.

Signed off in the autumn with two promising 6f novice runs, the latter over C&D; gelded in the meantime and sports first-time cheekpieces for this handicap debut; open to improvement but dealt duff hand draw-wise.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark with a narrow success in a C&D nursery (good to soft) last September; only eighth in two AW handicaps since but she had a wide trip on both occasions and this return to turf looks a positive; only 2lb higher than for her win and she's not ruled with hood added back at this track.

Won a 6f nursery at Leicester on good to soft last September; not so good in either start since but she's been drawn wide on both occasions; has the rail to help her today and she has shown promise on soft ground; one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Just one win from nine starts but that was at Newcastle (6f, Tapeta) in January and she was beaten less than 2l at Wolverhampton (7f) last time; now returns to turf but she has some soft-ground form over C&D and is still unexposed in this sphere; in the mix back in trip.

Form & Verdict

No progress in novice/maiden events last season but he found plenty of improvement on handicap debut when close second at Kempton (6f, AW; 4-1) last week; has very different conditions to deal with here but he's due to be 4lb higher in future and is a big player if he can repeat that latest form.

Showed some promise in last three juvenile runs but she was only fifth of seven on her recent handicap debut at Wolverhampton (6f, AW; 18-1); that was after 176 days off but she needs improvement on this return to turf.
