Form & Verdict

Losing run up to 13, but having dropped in the weights her last two efforts have been encouraging as when second of nine at Carlisle (5f, good to soft) four weeks ago (has since undergone wind surgery); suited by a stiff track and respected from the same mark as last time.

Form & Verdict

A bit in and out on turf since returning in April, one of his better efforts when a close second of eight off this mark at Ayr (5f, good) on his penultimate outing; still 4lb higher than when winning over C&D last November so a bit more is required.

7 yo Gelding

Form & Verdict

Back to form when winning narrowly at Hamilton (5f, good to firm) 16 days ago and is just 1lb higher, but his three previous wins have been followed by moderate efforts which does pose a question.

Does seem to like it here (record over C&D reads 2212), but still 8lb above her last winning mark; may have to give best to something better handicapped.

Form & Verdict

Has won over C&D but returns to 5f for the first time since twice finishing runner-up here in January; needs a strong pace to aim at but still needs everything to fall right even if he does get it; others safer.

4 yo Gelding

Form & Verdict

Well held on turf the last twice, but two of his four wins have come over C&D and he is back off the same mark as for his latest success in March; drops into a Class 5 for the first time since winning here last October; high on list.

Form & Verdict

Usually seen over further and though he did win over 5f off 4lb lower at Doncaster in March, that was on soft ground; 0-4 on the AW and not sure this is his ideal scenario.

Won four times in the spring, twice over 5f on soft ground/Polytrack and twice over 6f at Wolverhampton (Tapeta); not disgraced the last twice, but needs a bit more to defy this mark.

Form & Verdict

1-25 on turf, but 5-18 on the AW including a win over C&D from 3lb higher last summer; last 14 starts have been in cheekpieces, but blinkers return today (worn twice before); one for the shortlist off what looks a favourable mark.

Form & Verdict

Nine wins on the AW have included five here, the latest from just 1lb lower in March; returns to the AW after some creditable efforts on turf and can't be dismissed entirely, even though this is a better race than he normally contests these days.

Dual C&D winner and 4lb lower than when successful at Ayr (6f, soft) last summer, but his four efforts since returning in January (three of them back here) leave him with enough to prove.

Both wins came on soft turf last summer and is 1lb lower than for the latest; has run well in two of his three starts on the AW (including over C&D), but he failed to beat a rival on his recent Hamilton return so he needs to step up.
