Form: 40693- CD BF

Last run: 230 days

W: 9st 8lb

7 yo Gelding

OR: 82

Form & Verdict

He had been in action on AW prior to his easy win in the corresponding race 12 months ago (good to firm); now returns from 230 days off (has gone well fresh) and Wednesday's rain won't have been in his favour; that said, he handles good to soft and this lacks depth.

J: Mark Winn

T: Paul Midgley

Easy winner of a small-field event at Pontefract in May; several good runs since and this drop back in grade is in his favour; one to be interested in for a stable that won this race in 2018 and 2021.

8st 10lb

J: Graham Lee

T: Paul Midgley

Most of his best form, including all four wins, has come on good or faster ground, but he is back off the same mark as when beaten a neck over C&D (good to soft) in July; finished just behind Arecibo and Jm Jungle when sixth of 12 at Haydock (5f, good) a fortnight ago and not without a chance.

Form & Verdict

Over two years since his last win; threatened on AW this winter but he hasn't been at his best in two runs back on turf; down in the weights but others look stronger.

5 yo Filly

OR: 83

Form & Verdict

Prominent racer; wide-margin winner of an uncompetitive C&D handicap this month (soft) before a creditable fourth at Ripon nine days later (unpenalised); the recent rain won't have hurt her claims but she is now 6lb higher and might not get things her own way up front.

Form & Verdict

Made a winning debut for this yard over 6f here (good to soft) last September; coped with the drop to 5f when third at Newcastle when last seen 199 days ago; can win more races this year but he'll need to be at his peak after an absence.

Milbanke

9st 6lb

J: Ryan Sexton

T: Julie Camacho

Some good runs in the summer on final few starts for Ruth Carr and he won by a short-head on stable debut at Pontefract (6f, good to soft) in September; has won on the Wolverhampton Tapeta and, having shown good pace last time, this first crack at 5f is well worth a go; player.

4/1

Form: 928-62 D

4 yo Colt

OR: 82

Form & Verdict

Can make the running, as when scoring at Newcastle (6f) in November off a 4lb lower mark; promising return to turf at Nottingham 13 days ago (5f, good) when only picked off close home; runs off the same mark and he should give it another good go.

Form & Verdict

In good form on AW in March, winning over 6f at Southwell (easily) before a close third back there two weeks later; now 2lb lower than when fourth in this race 12 months ago (rare 5f run); handles soft; one to consider.

Bounced back to form with a comfortable success over C&D (off 7lb lower) two weeks ago, taking AW record to 4-16; still favourably treated on historical data and commands respect.
