Went close here on first two starts this year (6f, good to firm/5f, heavy); disappointed after racing too freely here (6f, good) on latest outing and remains on career-high mark but still enters calculations.

Form & Verdict

Yet to add to his three 2yo wins (one over C&D) but has dropped a long way in the weights and there has been promise this year; latest Goodwood defeat came in a much stronger race than this; well drawn and he's one to take seriously at this level.

Began year with narrow 5f AW win but has suffered a slump in form in recent weeks; ought to have been suited by the softish ground when finishing last at Chepstow ten days ago; arrives here with a lot to prove.

Form & Verdict

Very lightly raced since winning three in a row over 6f on AW in 2021; shaped well when sixth at Lingfield (6f, AW) a fortnight ago but is untested over 5f and today's return to turf is probably not ideal.

Ended 2021 with an AW hat-trick (first leg over C&D); career punctuated by long absences since then; risky, for all he's potentially well treated.

Close third off 2lb higher on stable debut at Wolverhampton (5f, AW) in February, after a break, but was not in same form on any of three subsequent appearances; will be fine back on turf but needs to up his game.

Catch Cunningham

J: Tom Eaves

T: Michael Herrington

Capable for Kevin Ryan; struggled to recapture peak form last year and moved on for 7,000gns; placed on stable debut at Wolverhampton (5f) in January, but failed to build on that positive showing at Southwell; well drawn so can't be discounted from an easing mark.

Without a win since summer 2022 and nothing like the force of old but lost out only by a nose to Inspired Knowhow over C&D (good to firm) last month and won't be far away if in the same form again.

Recon Mission

Regressive 8yo who switches back to turf after some underwhelming AW efforts this year; versatile ground-wise on turf and competes off another career-low mark, but needs to up his game.

Pipped Recon Mission to open account over C&D (good to firm) last month, his eighth start; not in same form at Nottingham last week, though, and will need to find something extra to overcome current mark.

Six-race maiden; always behind (albeit on soft ground) when 40-1 for recent stable debut (6f); could be considered only if much stronger in the betting for this first attempt at 5f.

Form & Verdict

Returned from break with win at Chelmsford in April and bounced back quickly from a lesser effort when respectable fifth at Lingfield (also 6f, AW) a fortnight ago; today's drop back to 5f won't be a problem but his record on turf is not persuasive.

Agostino

9st 7lb

J: Marco Ghiani

T: Robert Cowell

Both wins have been at Chelmsford (6f, AW) and latest was a comfortable success off 5lb lower on his return last month; still looks feasibly treated on that form but he's 0-7 on turf and has generally struggled in this sphere; comes with risks attached back on grass.

Built upon satisfactory seasonal debut and ran big race in defeat when dropped back to 5f at Ripon (good; refitted cheekpieces) on Wednesday; competes off same mark and ought to pose a potent threat.
