Form & Verdict

Front-runner; given a peach of a ride when winning at Lingfield last April (6f, AW) and ran well at Haydock when last seen 376 days ago; can go well fresh but there is other pace to deal with on this rare 5f run.

J: Frankie Dettori

T: Robert Cowell

Front-runner who was given a peach of a ride to win at Lingfield on Good Friday; only midfield back on turf three weeks ago and even the booking of the red-hot Frankie Dettori may not be enough to tip the scales in his favour today.

Five wins from ten starts in C&D handicaps, including his last three; up in class today but he's on the up and shouldn't be underestimated.

9st 5lb

J: Lewis Edmunds

T: Jessica Macey

Kept on well for narrow C&D win four weeks ago and now has 8-28 strike-rate on AW; has the inside stall again today and is still on a workable mark after recent 2lb nudge; respected.

Cheekpieces have turned things around for him, winning four handicaps since March (including C&D; last two runs suggest the handicapper has caught up now though.

Form & Verdict

Losing run up to ten but he ran as well as he ever has when third of six at Lingfield (5f, AW; Almaty Star second) 16 days ago; 1-1 over C&D; drawn widest but this should be run to suit.

Never going the pace in the Dash at Epsom 19 days ago; has a fine record over C&D, is down to a dangerous mark and much better is expected from him this time.

J: Jason Hart

T: John & Sean Quinn

Admirable veteran who is fully effective under these conditons; likely to give his running but he looks vulnerable to up-and-coming rivals.

Two creditable 7f runs on AW this year but she looks to be on the downgrade and it won't be easy trying to dominate now dropped back to 5f.

Form & Verdict

Strong at the finish when winning a Windsor handicap on his stable debut last month (5f, good to firm); solid run off this mark last time and he's likely to be in the shake-up once again.
