Nelson Gay

9st 6lb

J: Billy Loughnane

T: Michael Dods

Five of his six wins have come on the AW, one of them here; held up off a strong pace when close up here 16 days ago but he can race prominently; closely matched with Moon Flight and Dark Kestrel on that form; fighting chance.

Form: 4538-2 D

5 yo Gelding

OR: 73

Form & Verdict

Losing run is mounting up but he has plenty of respectable form since last win; went very close at Beverley (5f, good to firm) on seasonal debut and can remain competitive, having gone back up just 1lb.

Form & Verdict

Largely consistent on AW this year for previous yard; form dipped at Beverley on debut for new stable but holds a fighting chance granted a rebound; won off this mark on turf last August.

9st 9lb

J: Callum Shepherd

T: David Simcock

Kept on for second over C&D on his penultimate start and ran a fair race at Lingfield last week (6f); could prove vulnerable back at 5f unless the pace collapses.

Form: 6-0093 CD

8 yo Gelding

OR: 57

Form & Verdict

Clear signs of a return to form in big field at Thirsk last month, finishing third (best of the near-side runners); defied a 7lb higher mark in this contest last year (good to firm) on sole start under Elle-May Croot; respected.

Scored twice on turf in August; back in similar form when going very close, despite a tardy start, in C&D contest three days ago; strong chance off same mark back down in grade.

C&D winner who won two in a row on turf in August and is back down to his last winning mark; however, he hasn't shone on his four subsequent starts and needs to raise his game.
