Form & Verdict

Multiple course winner, two over this trip; fluffed the start on his seasonal return at Windsor but more like it when fourth of eight here 18 days ago; drops into a 0-55 and he's one to take seriously with a good apprentice taking off 7lb.

Invariably comes to hand early, including winning the last two runnings of this off the same mark as today; was slowly away and pulled hard on his stable debut a fortnight ago and that will have set him up nicely for the hat-trick attempt.

Hard to win with but he comes into the race on the back of two solid efforts over further, finishing off strongly for second at Brighton two weeks ago (6f, good); handles slow ground but likely he'll need them to go off too fast over this trip.

Poor strike-rate and although he's run some sound races for his current stable this winter, he looks vulnerable back at 6f on this return to turf.

Sole success came in 2021; 0-5 and regressive for current yard; not exactly screaming to be backed but is well handicapped provided first-time cheekpieces prompt a turnaround.

Form & Verdict

Both turf wins have come at this track and he was first past the post in a division of the corresponding event 12 months ago (subsequently disqualified after testing positive for a banned substance); two runs this year should have him spot on for a repeat, but wouldn't want much more rain and he's drawn widest.

He has run twice at Brighton, winning both starts over this C&D in the autumn of 2021; 0-7 this year but he's been banging at the door and should give it another good go.

Yet to win in 16 attempts but she's banging at the door for this yard, beaten a nose at Wolverhampton last month (6f) before a good third of 15 in a similar event over C&D nine days ago; conditions won't be an issue and she's one for the shortlist.

Nine-race maiden; went desperately close at Windsor last June (5f, good to firm) but that hasn't proved to be a springboard to better things; this is likely to be the slowest ground she's tackled and she looks best watched back from 225 days off.
