Form & Verdict

Won 1m3f maiden (soft) on debut last April; improved form in defeat in Listed race and 1m5f Group 3 on next two starts, before a lesser show in Group 3 last August; given wind surgery three days later and reappeared with creditable fourth of 13 in handicap here (1m4f, good) one month ago; has a bit to find but today's longer trip can suit and this lightly raced 4yo remains open to progress.

Form & Verdict

Best effort last season came over 1m5f on heavy ground at Newbury, where he went close in 1m4f Group 3 (good to soft) in April on reappearance this term; good ground may well have been against him at same track four weeks ago; needs to find a bit extra but 1m6f has to be worth a go.

Form & Verdict

Acts on heavy; 3yo season ended with a heavy defeat at Royal Ascot (1m4f Group 2, good to firm) but he's resumed his improvement, leading over 2f out to win a handicap at Epsom (1m4f, good to soft) in good style two weeks ago; new trip is plausible and he has a leading form chance, perhaps with more to give.

OR: 97

Form & Verdict

Sole win was a four-runner AW handicap two years ago; runner-up in six of her 11 starts since (last nine were in Listed or Group events) and that includes four times by a neck or less, staying 1m6f and appearing to act on almost any going; can go well fresh but has a bit to find on form.

Ran flat in the Group 2 Park Hill at Doncaster (14.5f, soft) last time, but placed four times in Pattern company prior to that as when runner-up in a Chester Listed contest (1m6f, good to soft) on penultimate start; won a four-runner handicap here (1m4f) on only previous AW outing and looks the one to beat.

Creditable second over 1m6f at Leopardstown (Group 3) in July and Chester (Listed) this month; largely consistent but still has only one success on the board and faces a harder task upped to Group 2 level.

Form & Verdict

Well-beaten third favourite in the Ebor at York last August but ran well up to 14.5f in his other four races last term, winning twice, and reappeared with excellent second in 1m4f handicap at Newmarket six weeks ago; no ground worries and stepping back up in trip can help; looks set for a big run.

Well-beaten third favourite in the Ebor at York last August but ran well in his other four races last season, winning twice; could still have better in store this term and although his last three appearances were over about 1m6f, so this 1m4f race might not be ideal, he is still seriously considered given today's opposition.
