Form & Verdict

Hasn't run at all badly back on turf the last twice (1m6f, soft; 1m4f, good to firm) but without genuinely threatening; he's now 1-27 and others appeal more.

Running well on the AW after joining this yard in January and he ran another sound race at Doncaster on his return to turf 13 days ago; more required to win here though.

4 yo Colt

Form & Verdict

Twice runner-up in Tapeta handicaps (1m2f and 1m4f) late last year and soft ground was perhaps against him when a disappointing favourite on his return at Beverley; has races in him off this mark.

Form & Verdict

Won comfortably at Carlisle (1m3f, good to soft) last July but twice down the field on two visits to York since, latterly when tried in a hood; this is at least a welcome drop in grade.

Has won only one of his 21 starts and his reappearance (after an absence) was forgettable; doesn't look the percentage call.

J: Rowan Scott

Having tumbled down the weights there were signs last May/June that he'd found his current level; however, he's won just one of his 20 starts and has a sizeable absence to defy today.

Regressed for the Johnstons after a promising start and things weren't looking up when tailed off on Doncaster reappearance (stable debut).

J: Gianluca Sanna

T: Jason Ward

Promising start to career in 2022 and remains lightly raced, but he failed to threaten on his three outings last year (April/June) and needs a bigger performance on this first start since; has left Charlie Johnston.

Sea Master

J: William Buick

T: Charlie Johnston

Has failed to shine this year in his first two handicaps and he's hard to fancy on that evidence; however, stable's horses can bounce back to form from out of the blue and he showed ability last year; not discounted.

Has not shown much in three Flat runs but now goes handicapping off a low mark and there was promise in her bumpers.

Won at Haydock and Pontefract on good to firm last summer and held his form until getting stuck in the mud on his final run; goes on good but any softer spells danger.

Form & Verdict

Three hurdles wins and two on the Flat; came from off the pace to finish second over this far at Catterick (heavy) latest but she's at her best on soft or heavy ground; recent rain has helped but doubt they've had enough for her.

J: David Nolan

Win and placed form over hurdles this winter and she's a dual Flat winner (1m4f/1m6f) who enjoys soft ground; on a reasonable mark and the return of cheekpieces is no bad thing.
