Form & Verdict

Productive last term; ties in with Trooper Bisdee on Nottingham reappearance running and subsequent effort suggests she remains in form; still unexposed at 2m+ and enters calculations.

Easy win in a Newton Abbot seller (2m2f, good) for Dan Skelton in September 2022 but he's not been since then; well treated on his old handicap form but he's untried beyond 2m4f and has something to prove for new yard after a long absence.

Form & Verdict

Respectable fourth in the Chester Plate on reappearance; couple of lesser efforts since but looks interesting back at Pontefract, being 3-3 here (all last summer); rebound is likely.

Form & Verdict

Belied his 125-1 odds with an encouraging effort over 1m4f here two weeks ago on return from layoff; shaped as if this step back up in distance would suit; possibilities off same mark.

J: Bradley Harris

T: Milton Harris

Flat/hurdles winner in Britain earlier in career and Flat/bumper scorer in Germany last year; not seen since very disappointing stable debut in March, though, and not an easy one to predict here; swaps cheekpieces for first-time visor.

Form & Verdict

Successful over 2m at Catterick and Chester last month, then hindered by slow pace at Haydock when failing to complete hat-trick; still favourably treated on peak form; not dismissed.
