Form & Verdict

Ex-Swedish; first turf run since 2022; consistent on AW in Britain from October to January, including his win by a nose at Lingfield in January on first crack at 2m; weak 12-1 when well held at Kempton 15 days ago when next seen (without cheekpieces, which now return) and perhaps needed that run; worth a second look.

W: 10st 5lb

OR: 72

Form & Verdict

Off the mark (ninth attempt) in 11.6f handicap on good to firm at Lingfield five days ago, justifying favouritism in good style; 5lb penalty today and a 5lb-claiming rider is enlisted; possibly stretched by 1m6f at Doncaster on penultimate start, so that's a concern but he has to be strongly considered.

Form & Verdict

Sole win in his 23 starts came over C&D on good last July in first-time blinkers; reliable sort who's been runner-up on AW on last four outings, which is his best form but he's not dismissed back on turf, wearing new headgear.

4 yo Gelding

OR: 62

Form & Verdict

Runner-up in two bumpers; fourth of five in novice at Windsor (1m2f) in May looks clearly the best of his three runs under Flat rules, but 1m was presumably against him on both starts since (150-1 and 125-1); market may guide now he's up to 1m6f for handicap debut.

8 yo Mare

OR: 66

Form & Verdict

Scored over C&D in 2021 and had two 1m6f wins elsewhere last year; ran respectably on Flat return three weeks ago and she's a player if improving on that a notch to return to best 2023 form.

5 yo Colt

OR: 69

Form & Verdict

Followed up his creditable sixth of 16 in the Chester Cup consolation race (2m2f, good to firm) with two seconds over hurdles; however, he was last of seven back on the Flat at Newmarket (1m6f) on Saturday; a hood returns in place of the recent cheekpieces.

Form & Verdict

Ran creditably last month at Doncaster (1m4f) and Cartmel (2m1f novice hurdle); not far away on that evidence but others are preferred for the win.

6 yo Colt

OR: 69

Form & Verdict

Won twice here (1m6f/2m) in the summer of 2022; that's from 35 races but he was regularly competitive in his time with Ed de Giles; far less of an impact on AW, which may excuse his two runs last winter for Alexandra Dunn, since which he's had a trainer change; well handicapped on turf form.
