Form & Verdict

Had a career-low mark when winning at Musselburgh (2m) this month and followed up in apprentice event at Redcar (1m6f) nine days later; bids for his third win in two weeks and has the same mark as latest outing (due to go up 3lb) so there's plenty to like.

Form & Verdict

11th race when off the mark at Lingfield (second attempt at 2m, good to firm) 19 days ago, comfortably making all; largely consistent in handicaps and needs plenty of respect despite 5lb rise.

Form & Verdict

Two fast-ground wins last summer (1m2f and 1m4f) and she also won twice over about 2m4f as a hurdler in October; good runs (hurdles and Flat) on last two outings, beaten a neck at Doncaster (14.5f) latest; unraced over this far on Flat but she's one to take seriously.

Form & Verdict

Four-time AW winner at up to 16.5f; first turf win came at Doncaster (14.5f, good to firm) in May and there have been two creditable runs since; return to 2m should be fine and it looks like she will be on the premises.

Form: 1257-0 CD

Last run: 21 days

W: 8st 6lb

8 yo Gelding

OR: 58

Form & Verdict

Fast ground would pose the big question, as he's unraced on firmer than good for over two years; however, he won this race in 2022 and 2023, is now only 1lb higher than last winning mark and gave encouragement on reappearance three weeks ago; has to be considered seriously.

Form & Verdict

Unraced beyond 1m4f on Flat but has scored over 2m and 2m4f as a hurdler; his significant Flat form was in 2022 and he was tailed off on recent return to Flat for new yard after eight months off; others have more pressing claims.

Won twice last season, including a Hereford handicap off this mark (2m3f, good); consistent in defeat of late and won't be too far away once again.
