Form & Verdict

10yo; won at Catterick (7f, heavy) last October and returned to form when third there (7f, soft) last Thursday; he should be fine now back up in trip and he won here on good going in 2022; possible contender.

OR: 49

Form & Verdict

Now a 10yo but he went close in this 12 months ago and is 2lb lower than when winning over C&D (good to firm) last August; also effective on good to soft; reappeared with fair fourth here four weeks ago and could build on that with a big performance today.

Form & Verdict

Won at Southwell (1m, AW) in April and good second there last time; has a lower turf mark and holds leading claims if transferring his AW form back to grass, but on past evidence there's a doubt in that regard.

4 yo Filly

Form & Verdict

In good form on AW earlier this year, finishing second on her last two starts (1m); down the field last May/June on her two turf outings but she could be a different filly now; one to consider back from 86-day break.

5 yo Gelding

OR: 58

Form & Verdict

Returns from a break, having had a predominantly disappointing AW campaign; however, perhaps the return to turf will help and he's on a dangerous mark, now 11lb lower than when winning at Carlisle last September on his last grass start; has won here and he's not discounted.

4 yo Colt

OR: 48

Form & Verdict

His form went the wrong way last autumn, and slow ground would be a concern, but he reappeared with an encouraging fifth at Ayr (6f) last Wednesday; posted a win (C&D, good to firm) and near-miss (1m1f, good) here last July and he's well handicapped on that form; could have a part to play.

Bit of support ahead of his comeback here last month and the return to blinkers, worn for last autumn's Musselburgh win (likes it there), could help; doesn't arrive in any form though.
