W: 9st 6lb

8 yo Gelding

OR: 71

Form & Verdict

Evidently retains plenty of ability aged eight, having justified favouritism at Ayr (6f, good) last week; major player under 4lb penalty, provided he remains in similar form; 1-1 over C&D.

Form & Verdict

Both wins over 6f on Tapeta at Southwell; led until folding in the final 1f at Thirsk (6f, good to soft) most recently, suggesting this drop in distance is worth a shot.

Record is 5-38; threatening to regain the winning thread, having finished second at Thirsk (good to soft) and Wolverhampton (AW; beaten a neck) the last twice; solid claims off the same mark.

Form & Verdict

Two wins for previous stable; 0-5 for current yard but the form is largely respectable; seemed to need his 2024 reappearance and looks interesting off a handy mark with that outing under his belt.

Form & Verdict

Record of 3-16 on AW compared to just 1-24 on turf; however, he's back on last winning mark and Lewis Chalkley takes off 7lb; ran encouragingly at Doncaster on seasonal debut and can't be ruled out.

So Grateful

9st 5lb

J: Joanna Mason

T: Michael & David Easterby

Close to his last winning mark; finished runner-up in a big-field sprint at Ayr's Western Meeting (5f, Class 5; good to soft) last September; gradually lost his way on AW thereafter, but does return fresh from a break at a realistic level; soft to heavy ground (0-7) presents the risk factor.

Form & Verdict

Has done all of his winning on Tapeta at Newcastle; form dipped the last twice; not seen on turf since September 2022 when 9lb lower and below par; others preferred.

Form & Verdict

Record of 5-18 on AW; absent since a below-par effort in February; competitively weighted but he's only 1-23 on turf and it's three years since the win; not the percentage call.

Nelson Gay

9st 6lb

J: Billy Loughnane

T: Michael Dods

Five of his six wins have come on the AW, one of them here; held up off a strong pace when close up here 16 days ago but he can race prominently; closely matched with Moon Flight and Dark Kestrel on that form; fighting chance.

5 yo Gelding

Form & Verdict

Strike-rate is 2-19; never landed a blow at Ripon on seasonal debut, continuing below form; back on last winning mark, so holds a fighting chance granted a revival.
