Form & Verdict

Took advantage of a reduced mark when winning at Wolverhampton (2m, AW) last month, then followed up off today's 4lb higher mark at Chelmsford (2m, AW) last Thursday; the latter was an apprentice, so there is no penalty for him to carry today; there is a bit more for him to prove on today's fourth attempt at this track, however.

Form & Verdict

Sole win in 22 starts came over 1m6f on good ground last July; unraced here but has been runner-up at up to 2m on AW tracks at Newcastle, Wolverhampton and Chelmsford, including on last three outings, so the chances are that he will again get seriously involved.

Sole win in 21 starts came over 1m6f on turf, but he has finished runner-up in both starts since returned to the AW and looked unlucky not to win when beaten a neck over 2m here a fortnight ago; up another 1lb but still a major player.

Form & Verdict

Started this year with a first and second on Chelmsford AW (2m and 1m5f) and not disgraced back on turf on latest outing; wore cheekpieces once 12 months ago (ran creditably but hung left) and now tries blinkers; one of many with each-way claims.

Form & Verdict

Well beaten returned to turf on penultimate outing but this year's four AW runs have all been good shows over 2m, including wins at Newcastle in March and over C&D on latest start; back up another 5lb but well on top last time and has to be considered.

Sole win (17 races) was over 1m6f on Southwell AW last June; had some 2m form afterwards and ran creditably here once in 2022; one of many with an each-way chance, assuming he returns on song from 220-day absence.

Earns points for consistency, having been placed in seven of his last nine starts, third to Abraaj over C&D on latest; however, that made it no career wins from 28 races.

T: John Butler

Runner-up in four consecutive starts over 1m6f-16.5f on the AW last autumn and a fair third of six behind a subsequent winner at Kempton (2m, Polytrack) last month, but he is now 0-26 so has enough to prove.

Form & Verdict

Won a maiden on the turf track here last August and ran well in defeat on all three starts this winter, the latest when pipped over C&D in January; left Sylvester Kirk for 28,000gns in February and his usual tongue-tie is now joined by cheekpieces; worth a second look.

13-race maiden; has usually given his running, including on Kempton Polytrack on one of his only two AW starts; reappearance may have done him some good, but unraced beyond 1m4f under Flat rules.

12-race maiden but second over C&D (heavy) on penultimate start and creditable fourth at Kempton (1m4f, AW) on latest; they were last autumn but he'd be on the premises if resuming at the same level.

Still a maiden but is related to a few winners for his yard and ran well (clear second) over 1m2f at Windsor last month, signalling that his turn may be near; shortlisted.
