Doesn't win too often (2-31), but has slipped down the weights and mostly creditable efforts since returning to AW, finishing fourth of eight over C&D last time.

Form & Verdict

Continues to drop down the weights and he took a step back in the right direction when sixth of eight at Catterick three weeks ago; however, this regressive 9yo has to build on that latest effort to pose a threat today.

OR: 60

Form & Verdict

Ran well on stable debut at Newcastle last November and he's one to watch in the betting back from some time off; however, his form was patchy last year (pulled up over hurdles when last seen) and he has a poor strike-rate.

First run in this headgear combination and for this stable when coming from off the pace to be close up on the AW Flat at Newcastle (2m) this month but then finished last there 13 days ago; soundly beaten in his qualifying runs over hurdle; others look safer.

Won in January (1m4f, AW) and he's also effective on turf; however, he's failed to threaten on his last three starts and needs to get back on track.

Allowed his own way at a steady pace when winning a small-field C&D handicap off 1lb lower in January; pulled hard and got stuck in the mud back from a break a fortnight ago, and needs to do much better.

Her mark continues to slide but she's been unable to threaten this year, most recently when upped to 1m2f here; big stamina question to answer now tackling another new trip.

Continues to drop down the weights and there was a hint of a revival over 1m here two starts ago; however, he was well beaten here (1m2f) last time and is back to having plenty to prove (including stamina).

9st 11lb

J: Daniel Tudhope

T: Liam Bailey

Eight-race maiden; kept on well for second at Musselburgh (1m1f, good) for Karl Burke last summer but left that stable after a disappointing run, and has also struggled on both starts for Liam Bailey.

10/1

Form: 46-724

Last run: 5 days

4 yo Colt

OR: 53

Form & Verdict

0-10 but he was a good front-running second over C&D (good) on his second stable start and soft ground may not have suited at Beverley last week; could bounce back with bold show in first-time visor (replacing cheekpieces).
