Form & Verdict

Had just six runs since debut in August 2022, winning two of them, at 6f on turf (good to soft) and Tapeta; stays 7f perfectly well and this will take much less winning than his latest turf run, when fifth of ten at York (good to firm) last May; good claims.

Form & Verdict

All four wins, at 7f and 1m, have come on good and good to firm and soft ground was against him on his reappearance; no eyecatcher off current mark and he didn't feature from a highish draw in this race last year but he does act well here; capable of taking a hand.

All four wins on much quicker ground than he's likely to face this evening; only eighth of 13 when making his reappearance in this race on soft ground last year and the suspicion is he'll find a few too strong again.

Four-time winner on turf; won a small-field event at Yarmouth in June and he's followed that with three creditable runs in stronger company; tailed off over 1m2f here on only AW run but he finished lame on that occasion; not discounted down in class.

Form & Verdict

Has won three of five AW starts since his debut early in 2023 but he was down the field at Southwell 20 days ago; 0-4 on turf and although he acts on grass his best effort, when runner-up at Ffos Las (about 7f, good) last June, wasn't strong form behind the winner; work to do.

Ran just twice in Ireland as a 2yo (ran to a useful level on turf debut) and missed all of last year but has been going great guns on Tapeta for new connections and was impressive in the way he dealt with his rivals on the step up to 7f at Southwell recently; up 4lb but by no means exposed.

Lightly raced 4yo who defied a 539-day absence when making a successful stable debut here (5f; first start since being gelded) last month; not disgraced when third of seven on handicap debut at Wolverhampton (6f, Tapeta) last time and shouldn't have an issue with stepping up another furlong on pedigree; respected.

Went very close to breaking his duck at Beverley (about 7f, good to firm) last spring but better form on Tapeta since, winning over 1m before two narrow defeats at 7f; had excuses for heavy defeats on last two starts but needs to show he's still in form.

Possibly out of his depth in Class 3 last time; generally consistent and has place possibilities back down in grade, provided the pick of his winter AW form is transferred back to turf.

Nearly always wore aids in Ireland but went without for this yard until fitting cheekpieces seemed to help when winning in good style at Beverley (about 7f, good to firm) in August; off since so this might be needed.

Form & Verdict

Losing run goes back to a 7f win at Musselburgh last April (good to soft; has run well on good to firm here) and he doesn't seem in quite the form he was in last spring, even allowing for a slow start at Chester ending his chance; others preferred for win purposes.

Four-time AW winner; unplaced all six starts for Ruth Carr but did not really have the race run to suit when fourth over C&D in January, and his keeping-on fifth at Newcastle (7f) this month was a pretty good effort too; on a good mark now and has the inside draw today; might be the answer.

Form & Verdict

Suited by the switch to good going when winning on first three 7f starts for this yard, including over C&D; had two serious disappointments since, however, on turf and the AW, and probably best to leave it to the market to point the way back from break.

Won his first three starts on turf (7f, good) after joining this yard in the summer, but disappointing when last of five at Newmarket (7f, good) in September; ran well a couple of times on the Dundalk Polytrack for his previous yard, but he needs to put that latest effort behind him.
