J: Hollie Doyle

T: Marco Botti

Successful in middle-distance events at two and three; however, this 4yo campaign has not started well, leaving a question mark over his current form; opposed unless the market signals foresee a revival.

J: Benoit De La Sayette

Unable to justify good market support when only ninth at Southwell (1m3f) last month, after a break, and remains 5lb higher than for last summer's 1m4f turf win; comes here with a point to prove.

Form & Verdict

Formerly a smart performer; made all to win over C&D on stable debut earlier this month (good to firm, Chillhi runner-up; second course win); softer ground no problem and should go well again despite 4lb rise.

J: Zak Wheatley

T: Tony Carroll

Course win in July 2021 (1m6f, good to soft) remains his last success; out of sorts in 2023 but a consequence of that is he's starting out for a new yard off a lowly mark; needs a market check.

J: Ryan Sexton

His last win was off 18lb higher over C&D (good to soft) but that was in July 2021 and he's struggled this year, including at this track in his last three runs; has lots to prove for another new yard.

Form & Verdict

Irish raider; last three wins have been at Dundalk (including over 1m4f) but has won twice on turf; beaten nearly 6l when seventh of 12 at Lingfield (2m, AW) in March on latest start; goes on soft; drop in trip should suit.

Has won three of her six starts (1m2f/1m4f) for current yard but her progress stalled when fourth at Dundalk last time; wasn't beaten far in that race but she's untried beyond 1m4f and has something to prove on her step up to this trip.

37,000gns buy out of James Fanshawe's yard last October; last win was over 1m2f on soft ground; two fair runs in blinkers for current yard, latest when sixth at Ascot (1m4f, good); a possible, but might be better at shorter.

Scored twice (AW/soft) for previous yard; absent since a respectable midfield effort at Kempton (1m3f; easy to back) six months ago on debut for new stable; follow the market signals on reappearance.

Form & Verdict

Showed best form for a while when 1.25l second to Oman (who is now 2lb worse off) in an apprentice event over C&D last time (good to firm, clear of the remainder); seems just as effective on this softer ground; chance.

Chillhi

9st 9lb

J: William Pyle

T: Brian Ellison

Won twice on AW as a 2yo; best turf run came over C&D last May, third of ten having made up a lot of ground in the straight; mixed record since but he's dropped a long way in the weights and he should be sharper with his reappearance behind him.
