Form & Verdict

Six-race maiden but he wasn't beaten far in tough assignment at Epsom (1m2f Listed) on his reappearance and has finished placed in handicaps at Kempton (1m4f, AW) and Hamilton (1m1f, good) since; 1lb lower than for his last run and he looks a big player back up in trip.

Broadly similar efforts in a trio of 1m maidens on synthetics last backend, and remains to be seen whether the RPR of 90 for last week's 5l sixth of six in a slowly run Blue Riband Trial (good) flatters him; winning exploits of one half-sibling at 1m4f and beyond offer encouragement.

Form & Verdict

0-5 but he's been pretty consistent and gave it a good shot under a positive ride when clear second in a Goodwood maiden (1m6f, good) last week; on unchanged mark back in a handicap and he looks interesting on this return to 1m4f.

Form & Verdict

Frankel filly who is closely related to 1m2f turf/2m AW winner Circuit Breaker (RPR 93); ended last season on a low note but she resumed her progress upped to 1m2f on handicap debut when a rallying third at Salisbury (good to firm) 18 days ago; that was eyecatching after 251 days off and she's respected on this step up to 1m4f.

T: Ralph Beckett

Similar fair form when never-dangerous fifth of six at Goodwood (green) and always-prominent third of seven at Sandown (favourite) three weeks later, both over 1m on good and with Our Golden One just ahead of her; a leading player on form and she's shown stamina.

Form & Verdict

Acts on any ground and has finished third here (1m4f/2m) in two of his last three runs but was beaten around 6l on both occasions; now 1lb lower than for his Wolverhampton win (1m6f, AW) last summer but he's 0-13 on turf and needs to find more back at this trip.

Form & Verdict

Fairly useful three-time Flat winner (12.5f, 1m2f and 9.5f) in France but he's not made a significant impact in his eight starts (Flat and over hurdles) in Britain; mark continues to fall and now drops into a Class 4 event but he needs to find some extra spark.

Useful three-time Flat winner (9.5f-1m4f) in France, but hasn't made an impact on the Flat or over hurdles in Britain, moving to Ian Williams prior to finishing well held over 1m at Leicester 12 days ago; can only watch.

Form & Verdict

Held up these days; ended his losing run with a narrow win at Southwell (1m4f, AW) in March but he was laboured after missing the break back on turf at Haydock (1m4f, good) three weeks ago; bit to prove again after that and this is his first run at this track.

J: Luke Morris

T: David Simcock

Unexposed 5yo who was returning from six months off and having his first start since being gelded when beaten a neck at Wolverhampton (1m4f, Tapeta) 15 days ago; up 2lb but still a major player if taking a step forward.

Form & Verdict

All ten wins have been on AW and latest was in December 2022; started this year with three places at Newcastle, but he's struggled back on turf in last two runs; has something to prove again and he's never raced over this far.
