Form & Verdict

Can front-run; ended last season in July but on a high note, winning in good style at Catterick (1m4f, good); well beaten over 1m4f this season at Epsom and Newmarket, so others have more pressing claims on this his second attempt at about 1m6f.

8st 10lb

J: Franny Norton

T: Charlie Johnston

Can front-run; ended last season in July but on a high note, winning in good style at Catterick (1m4f, good); well beaten at Epsom (8-1) on reappearance 11 days ago, fading over the last 2f, but may well have needed that run.

6 yo Gelding

OR: 89

Form & Verdict

Seen far more often over hurdles (winner on varied ground); has lost his way in that discipline but he was a smooth 2m winner on the Kempton AW in March (first Flat start since 2021) and was not discredited when tenth in the Chester Cup nine days ago; first-time hood replaces cheekpieces; may still have more to offer on Flat.

8st 6lb

J: Silvestre De Sousa

T: James Owen

Seen far more often over hurdles (winner on varied ground); has lost his way in that discipline but he was a smooth 2m winner on the Kempton AW in March on his only Flat start since 2021; 4lb higher today but could have more to offer in this sphere and is one to consider.

7 yo Colt

OR: 95

Form & Verdict

Runner-up in the 2020 St Leger and won on AW (2m) last January; has a mixed record since, the best of which were his two good runs last August (including fifth in the Ebor); that form gives him a shout and he may have needed his recent reappearance here, but he does not look the percentage call.

10 yo Horse

OR: 93

Form & Verdict

Absent 295 days before his only race last season, when seemingly not discredited behind a 1-5 favourite in a two-finisher Listed race in September; normally reliable and fully effective on AW but no show when 40-1 in useful AW race six weeks ago and this 10yo has questions to answer despite subsequent 4lb drop; rarely seen on softer than good.

Absent 295 days before his only race last season, when seemingly not discredited behind a 1-5 favourite in a two-finisher Listed race in September; reliable and fully effective on AW, including at this track, but the handicapper has not cut him any slack.

5 yo Gelding

OR: 77

Form & Verdict

Won four staying handicaps at Chelmsford since last August and good second on Southwell AW (2m) on both starts this season; his only three turf starts (last May-August) saw low-level form but his AW level was modest as well at that stage and he is a major player on the more recent AW efforts.

5 yo Gelding

OR: 95

Form & Verdict

Trained in 2022 and 2023 by Andre Fabre, with most of those runs at about 1m; kept to 1m4f/1m6f in Meydan by new yard this year and made late headway on first three occasions, before a lesser show with a first-time visor (kept today) last time; off 86 days but major chance if back to his best Meydan form.
