Form & Verdict

All three wins have been on AW but he wasn't far off his best when a 2l third at Leicester (7f, good) 17 days ago; didn't get the best of runs in that race and has possibilities if he can back that up.

9st 11lb

J: Robert Havlin

T: Ed Dunlop

Winner of three of his first four starts for Ed Dunlop last year, all on AW (0-10 on turf); low-key return to action at Lingfield last month but drops back in grade today and his best turf run came at this track.

Two wins include one here and he returned to form when a front-running second at Lingfield (7f, good to firm) when perhaps going off a bit too fast; Connor Planas looks a good booking.

Form & Verdict

Effective at 6f and 7f and has won on good to soft and good to firm; ended last season with two placed efforts but he had a heavy defeat on his recent reappearance at Haydock (9-2); that was after 231 days off but he needs to bounce back near best here.

Magical Merlin

9st 8lb

J: Richard Kingscote

T: Harry Charlton

Dual 6f winner who was placed over 7f on his final two starts of last season without entirely convincing that this is his trip; might be stronger now as a 4yo and this mark shouldn't be beyond him.

4yo filly who made it 3-7 on turf when justifying support with a comfortable success over C&D (good) last month; up 5lb but she still looks feasibly treated and is 2-2 under Olivia Tubb; big player.

9st 9lb

J: Olivia Tubb

T: Jonathan Portman

Placed on Lingfield AW last month, after a break, and didn't run badly at Kempton a fortnight ago; may not have much margin for error off her 5lb higher turf mark but capable apprentice Olivia Tubb (who won on her last summer) claims 5lb today; might be the answer.

Form & Verdict

Record of 1-12 but his win was at this track (1m maiden) in September and he returned after a gelding operation with a close second at Bath (1m, soft) three weeks ago; up 2lb but that was a personal best last time and he should be fine on this drop back in trip; key player.

J: Rob Hornby

T: Hughie Morrison

Well beaten on final 3yo start and he had only one rival to beat for his sole win in a 1m Brighton maiden, but he has C&D form and a second of ten in a Goodwood handicap (1m, soft) in October is quite encouraging form for this level; gelded since last seen; in the mix.

J: Rob Hornby

T: Hughie Morrison

Off the mark in two-runner race at Brighton in September and things haven't gone to plan in two 1m runs since, had no luck in running at Newbury (heavy) and again pulled hard when seeing too much daylight at Goodwood since; the return to 7f, for the first time on turf, could be ideal; involved.

Lightly raced maiden; vulnerable in 1m and 1m2f handicaps for Sir Michael Stoute last year; sold 31,000gns in February; now drops back to 7f after six months off and has bit to prove for new yard; withdrawn due to slow ground at Yarmouth last week.

Five-race maiden who should do better still (well bred and in excellent hands); couple of similar efforts this year (fourth both times); may take a step forward on return from five-month break; interesting, particularly if the market speaks favourably.

Highly consistent since the hood went on and was a front-running fourth of 11 in a Class 4 at Kempton (7f, AW) last time; could go well again back on turf but he's 0-9 in this sphere and his losing run is up to 13.

Eight-time AW winner but he's been quiet after slow starts in that sphere in last three runs; his latest fifth at Southwell was a fair effort in the circumstances but he's 1-19 on turf and has never run at this track; down the list.

Sole win came in a Nottingham maiden (5f, soft) last July and he's been well held in 6f handicaps at Southwell (AW) and Windsor (heavy) in last two starts; record now stands at 1-14 and has something to prove in new headgear at this new trip.
