Form & Verdict

His best run in three novice/maiden events was a near miss at Newcastle (1m, AW) on second start; left George Boughey since his last run in March; untried on turf but he's a half-brother to a slow-ground winner and needs watching in the market on handicap/stable debut.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark (seventh attempt) when landing a Brighton handicap (7f, good) last month but he was tailed off in his follow-up bid at York three weeks ago; needs to bounce back after that major blip; still has something to prove on slow ground.

0-6 but he has solid record and was fair third in a Kempton handicap (7f, AW) in March, on his return after a gelding operation; that was behind an improver in a Class 3 event and he looks interesting on this drop back in grade.

Record of 0-7 but he has a pretty solid record and was third of 19 in a York handicap (7f, good to soft) last time; that was an eyecatching effort from off the pace and he's respected off an unchanged mark.

Form & Verdict

Won 7f Southwell novice (AW) last August; fair third in Wolverhampton handicap (9.4f) the following month but he returned from an absence with a 13l defeat at Newmarket (1m2f, good) six weeks ago; that trip may have stretched him but he still has something to prove on turf and others are preferred.

J: Mickael Barzalona

Debut was on turf (well held); 7f novice winner on Tapeta and better was presumably expected when odds-on third for handicap debut at Wolverhampton (9.4f); retains plenty of potential and kicks off his 3yo campaign now gelded.

Form & Verdict

Went close at Kempton (7f, AW) last October in the second of his two 2yo runs; disappointing at Newcastle on his return in May but it's still early days for this well-bred gelding and he needs a close look back up in trip on handicap debut.

Form & Verdict

Ended last season with a maiden win at York (1m, soft) and he may have needed the run on his handicap debut there (1m2f, good to soft) there last month; that was behind a major improver and he could resume his progress on this drop back in trip.

Big improvement when winning a Pontefract novice (6f, heavy) on his return in April but he was never involved on handicap debut at Haydock (ninth of 15) last month; still unexposed but he needs to kick on again at this new trip.

Form & Verdict

Five-race maiden but he's finished placed three times this spring and he had a tough task behind a smart prospect over 7f at Carlisle (fourth of 11) last time; this is more realistic on handicap debut and he looks feasibly treated on his best form; interesting back up in trip.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark at the sixth attempt when making all for a comfortable win at Doncaster (1m, good to soft) last September; paid the price for setting stronger fractions at York the following month but he didn't show much at Musselburgh on his return in April; may have needed that but he's still 5lb higher than for his win and has a bit to prove.

Won Hamilton maiden (6f, good to firm) last June but has a mixed record since and was only fifth of nine at Newcastle on his recent return; looks worth a try at this new trip but he's now 1-8 and others are more convincing.

Won at Newcastle (7f, AW) in March and was a close second at Musselburgh last month but he's not easy to predict and was beaten 15l at York (7f, good to soft) last time; only 1lb higher than for penultimate run but he comes with risks attached from wide draw.
