Form & Verdict

Took advantage of a reduced mark when winning at Wolverhampton (2m, AW) last month; under pressure from some way out, his stamina came into play and he won decisively; 4lb higher here, he has the assistance of Irish apprentice Wesley Joyce and still looks well treated.

7 yo Gelding

OR: 57

Form & Verdict

He is on a lengthy losing run but is knocking on the door; denied a clear run on his last two starts and failed by a neck over C&D two weeks ago; Chloe Lyons, who has ridden the gelding eight times, takes over again and this looks a fair opportunity for her to ride her first winner.

0-9 but close third here (upped to 1m6f) this month following eight-month absence; the key will be if he can improve again now going up to 2m; able apprentice Connor Planas takes the reins for the first time.

9st 5lb

J: Callum Shepherd

T: David Simcock

Eight-race maiden but he looks interesting on several placed efforts in middle-distance handicap last summer and he has shaped like a stayer at times; returns after 227 days off but he needs watching in market at this new trip.

4 yo Filly

OR: 56

Form & Verdict

Back off the same mark as when successful at Wolverhampton (1m6f) in January, she came from the back of the field to win over C&D two weeks ago; closely matched with placed horses Further Measure and Grand Duchess Olga, there should be little between them; often claimer ridden but both wins were under Rossa Ryan.

OR: 61

Form & Verdict

A dual course winner, she ran an eyecatching race to finish a close third here (2m) two weeks ago returning from a four-month break; produced to win her race off the final bend, she couldn't quite see it through; she should be spot on for this and comes into the reckoning.

Still a maiden but has run well at big odds when ridden by Grace McEntee on his last two AW starts at Chelmsford (1m2f) and Southwell (1m4f); attempted to make all on both occasions but was collared close home; poor on turf at Yarmouth last time; back on AW but steps up to 2m for the first time.
