Form & Verdict

Two wins last month (1m4f/1m6f, soft) and it was his third start in 11 days when below par at Salisbury (1m6f, heavy) last time; returns from 20 days off today and it's possible he'll bounce back with a good run.

Form & Verdict

Won twice last summer and campaign concluded with two second placings, over 1m4f on soft at Catterick on final occasion; soundly beaten at Bath on last month's reappearance but may have needed the run and the first-time hood could help him settle better; possibilities for last year's winning yard.

Two wins last summer and he ended that campaign with a good, rallying second off this mark at Newmarket (soft) on first attempt at 1m4f; in the mix if he resumes at the same level.

Form & Verdict

Hasn't really threatened the last twice but didn't run badly when seventh of 20 at York (1m4f, good) last week and his better form earlier this spring came on soft/heavy ground; interesting contender after this week's rain.

7 yo Gelding

Form & Verdict

He's 10lb lower than when winning at Southwell (1m4f, AW) last June but his form has gone the wrong way and he's struggled to get competitive on this season's Flat outings.

Having dropped below his last winning mark he returned to form when third at Newbury (1m4f, good) eight days ago; won on soft ground last September on sole previous visit to Haydock and he's on the shortlist.

Form & Verdict

Upped in trip for new yard this season and got up close home at Nottingham (1m2f, soft) last month; not at the same level the next twice (1m2f/1m4f, good) but could pose more of a threat now back on slow ground.

Built upon pleasing seasonal/stable debut when getting up close home at Nottingham (1m2f, soft) nine days ago; nudged up only 1lb for that and seems likely to be in the thick of things again.

Form & Verdict

Won on handicap debut at Nottingham (1m2f, soft) last April and again ran well when third of four there (1m2f, heavy) the following month; then absent until January, when mid-division at Chelmsford (1m2f, AW); off again since but remains lightly raced and returns with conditions in his favour.

Lightly raced 4yo whose Nottingham form (won then third) last spring looks solid; gelded since; remains open to further improvement and looks interesting on reappearance, especially as he evidently goes well fresh.

Form & Verdict

Continues to drop down the weights and his recent fourth at Newcastle (1m2f, AW) was a step back in the right direction; however, he has a regressive profile and needs to build on that latest performance.

Regressive 7yo who drew a blank last season and ought to have coped better with the soft ground when signing off with two substandard runs in the autumn; needs to have been revitalised by 198-day break.

Raced five times for Ralph Beckett, his best effort coming when second in handicap here (1m6f, good) last September; absent since but could have a part to play if coping with the ground on his stable debut.

One-paced fourth on 1m4f Lingfield (AW) handicap debut suggests this step up in trip should suit this lightly raced 3yo from a top yard enjoying an excellent run of form; reasons to be positive.
