Form & Verdict

Good pedigree and he improved for the step up to 1m4f when leading close home on handicap debut at Pontefract (good to soft; first-time cheekpieces, retained) in September; up just 2lb in a less competitive race; improver who needs a solid pace on this less testing track.

Hasn't shown much at all in a trio of 1m2f races (good/AW) but makes handicap debut with the yard in decent form and cheekpieces are enlisted; the market needs checking.

Form & Verdict

Two turf wins in 2023 (1m3f, good to firm; 1m2f, heavy); went off the boil in the autumn and disconcerting that he trailed home in his first two runs this year but he found plenty for a convincing AW win at Kempton (1m4f) ten days ago and this surface can suit back on grass.

Form & Verdict

Minor hurdle form in four attempts over the winter, despite finishing in the frame each time; however he won three times at up to 1m2f in France and is better handicapped than when first starting out for this yard last summer; may still need more weight off his back, though.

Often leads; low-key season after winning on second start after a break, at Pontefract (1m2f, good) last May, but now 8lb lower and he made a perfectly respectable return behind The Dancing Poet at Musselburgh 15 days ago; might find others seeing out the trip that bit better though.

Form & Verdict

Multiple winner, the last six over 1m4f on a variety of ground and most recently when things fell right for him at Musselburgh (good; cheekpieces refitted for the first time since August); back up 3lb but he's run well here in the past; on the premises.

Form & Verdict

Classy pedigree, out of dual Group 1 winner; looked promising when winning two good-ground bumpers last May and June and although he hasn't featured in 1m4f events on AW and turf there's every chance he'll find his level in handicaps; considered.

Form & Verdict

Record of 1-25 is offputting but he has quite a solid record over 1m4f in the last two years, including over C&D, and his AW win in October was convincing; had just two 1m2f runs since and not ruled out back at 1m4f.

Form & Verdict

The wins don't come around too often but he had a mark in the 70s this time last year and he took advantage at Yarmouth (1m3f, good) 14 days ago; back up just 2lb; this asks for more.
