Form & Verdict

Added to last summer's Hamilton win (8.3f, good) when scoring off 2lb lower at Newcastle (1m, AW) in January but he's not matched that form since; now drops back in trip after a respectable effort at Ayr last time but he needs to find more to make a big impact.

J: Connor Beasley

T: Michael Dods

Doubled tally with clearcut 1m Tapeta win in January but was unable to land a telling blow off a 5lb higher mark on next three outings; dropped 1lb during ten-week break but still needs a career best here; unraced over this far but was placed over 9.4f last year.

Form & Verdict

Signed off for 2022 with novice success at Ayr (1m, heavy) but he had only two runs last season and was well held in both of those handicaps (1m/1m2f); still unexposed after only five start but he has something to prove after a year off; stablemate of Hale End.

Two wins off lower marks in the autumn, including over C&D, but he was tailed off on his return at Pontefract last month; has something to prove after that major blip and he's ideally suited by good or slower ground.

Form & Verdict

Triple AW winner (7f-8.6f) who rallied well when a creditable third in Class 4 event at Chelmsford (7f, Polytrack) last month; now returns to turf for the first time since last summer but he's still unexposed in this sphere and is not ruled out back up in trip; another change of headgear.

360,000gns yearling; finished well to force a dead-heat on his Wolverhampton debut (8.6f) last April; flopped at Newcastle next time but but he ran well for a long way when fourth of 12 on handicap debut at Newbury (1m2f, good) last July; returns after a lengthy absence but he still has plenty of potential and needs a close look on this drop back in trip; hood worn last time is removed.

Won a conditions event (1m, good) in France in May; showed little in one start for Kevin Ryan, but performed better on his debut for this yard when fifth of 11 here (6f, good to firm) three weeks ago; down another 2lb and not dismissed lightly; seems to handle soft ground.
