Off since well beaten on his comeback seven weeks ago and runs without headgear for the first time in a little over a year; well treated if back on song but he isn't easy to fancy.

Yet to win a handicap and his turf form lags behind his AW best; dangerous mark but something to prove back from a break.

Form & Verdict

Kempton win has been well advertised since and he bettered that with a Yarmouth win on soft last time; a further 6lb rise demands more but he's progressive and represents an in-form yard, so the hat-trick is entirely possible.

Competitive since handicapping without appearing ahead of her mark, looking to have no excuses on turf last time; needs to find a bit more on her Tapeta debut.

Two poor efforts on turf, back from wind surgery, leave her something to prove; February's C&D maiden win reads well, though, and it will be interesting to see how she goes in the market.

Won his maiden here for Tom Clover last autumn; has had excuses in two runs back for his current yard this season, latterly over-racing in first-time headgear (removed today), and should fare better.

Given a break since out of her depth in Listed race in the spring; her two wins came from the front on Tapeta and she's drawn to attack but this longer trip is far from assured on pedigree.

Daughter of a course winner; goes in first-time headgear having been turned over as favourite on her turf debut a fortnight ago; holds claims on her Chelmsford win and ought to fare better again.

Latest effort can be ignored (hampered at the start and eased) and she's a deal better off with Atlantic Gamble than when behind him at Kempton; she's hard to recommend even then.

Form & Verdict

Nothing to suggest he's as good on the AW as turf but he's handicapped accordingly (a stone lower than when second at Windsor last spring); absent 412 days but two of his wins came after breaks of eight months and five months, which gives hope.

Won well at Leicester (heavy) on reappearance and good second when making big late gains on soft going next time, both at 1m; big downturn at Ascot (1m, good) 12 days ago but this second attempt at 1m2f looks well worth a go.

Goes well here but there's little wiggle room off this mark and he finished comfortably held on turf four weeks ago back from a layoff; others make more appeal.
