Form & Verdict

Back on a winning mark but he dumped his rider leaving the stalls last month and looked reluctant to go last time (back in the hood); can only be classed as risky now.

Capable off this mark but he showed a dark side here nine days ago (well backed), unruly beforehand and then veering right and unseating his rider leaving the stalls; risky.

On the downgrade last year and has turned in a string of moderate efforts on the AW in recent times; the headgear comes off and he's some way down the pecking order.

Three 1m wins on Fibresand here but latest success came on turf in August 2022; has had a quiet few months for this yard and well held over C&D latest; first-time cheekpieces replace a hood.

Went close first time out last spring, resumes on a workable mark and the more rain the better for her; she can miss the break, though, and an easy 1m is a minimum requirement.

Consistent filly who deserved her breakthrough win at Bath (1m, soft) last month and has since finished second off today's mark on heavy ground there; may find others better handicapped in this deeper race, though.

Albus Anne

J: Georgia Dobie

T: Jimmy Fox

Gained due reward for her consistency when finally off the mark over C&D (soft) a fortnight ago; raised 3lb since and, given that she's most proficient on soft ground (form figures 23231) and thrives for the handling of Georgia Dobie, she rates as the clear pick.

Form & Verdict

Winning run came to and end last time but soft ground was put forward as an excuse for that; this mark may well be within range as long as there's not too much rain.

9st 10lb

J: Charles Bishop

T: Jack Jones

On the up for new yard, winning 1m classified events at Lingfield and Kempton in February and making a successful turf debut with a comfortable 7f win (good) at Brighton last week; unlikely a 4lb rise is beyond her.

Form & Verdict

Finished second in this race last year off the same mark and has returned from a wind operation in good form; can miss the break and/or pull hard but the hood has helped and his claims are obvious.

T: John O’Shea

Ex-Irish 5yo; made a pleasing start for this yard when second of 11 at Chepstow (1m) last spring but unable to match it in four runs since; back from a break (underwent wind surgery during his absence) with a hood tried; dangerous mark and one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Losing run up to 22 and there have been too many near-misses at short prices for comfort; latest Bath second has been boosted by the winner following up, but this 5yo remains risky, having a rare start without headgear.

Finished last season on the up and his comeback effort behind Thoughtful Gift may be best overlooked (went hard enough in front; doesn't usually make the running); won't mind any rain and should do better.

He had threatened at a modest level before getting off the mark at the 11th attempt at Ffos Las 11 days ago (7.5f, soft), travelling strongly and winning with plenty to spare despite hanging badly left when clear; 5lb rise demands more but he's completely unexposed on slow ground and needs serious consideration.
