Form & Verdict

Pulled hard upped to 1m2f in a first-time visor (same mark) on his comeback from being gelded and has been off for two months since; Crisfords are 7-19 here (including this race last year with a 3yo) and it will be interesting to see how he goes in the market.

J: Callum Shepherd

T: Simon & Ed Crisford

Improved upon his first two runs (both turf) when winning at Chelmsford (1m, AW) last November; gelded since; reverts to grass today but his dam won over 11.5f/1m7f and he's open to improvement now up in trip on handicap debut; wears a first-time visor.

Form & Verdict

Won on good to firm ground here a couple of years ago but tends to stick to slower conditions now; resumes from eight months off on a career-high mark at the age of seven and all victories have come after a recent outing, so he has a bit to overcome.

Form & Verdict

Soft-ground winner in France who's been kept to similar conditions since joining this yard; again finished well held last time and, while the handicapper is easing off quickly, would want to see some support before considering him.

5 yo Colt

OR: 81

Form & Verdict

Handles fast ground but most wins, including two over C&D (same race in the spring), came on softer going; the return here should help but he could use more than just the odd shower and there's very little wiggle room off this mark.

Form & Verdict

Allowed his own way when going close at a big price a month ago (novice) and ran to a similar level last time (both 1m1f on soft at Carlisle); neither winner has run again since; lightly raced but will have to improve off this opening mark.

4 yo Colt

OR: 78

Form & Verdict

Won first time out last year but that was a novice (soft) and he struggled once handicapping subsequently; is another 3lb lower as he wears first-time headgear back from nine months off but is ultimately hard to fancy.

3 yo Colt

OR: 80

Form & Verdict

Off the mark in a three-runner soft-ground maiden over C&D two months ago before finding it too much under a penalty in novice company (good to firm) three weeks ago, when inclined to pull hard; needs more now handicapping.

Soft-ground maiden winner last autumn before being gelded; offered more at Chester last time, when chopped off on the home turn, and is 2lb lower, so needs considering.

Form & Verdict

Promising debut (Tapeta) and, after winning a weak Ayr maiden, took another good step forward on his handicap debut early last month (1m2f); today's return to 1m is perhaps not optimal but he remains open to further improvement upped 6lb.

9st 2lb

J: Callum Rodriguez

T: Edward Bethell

Half-brother to a useful miler; made very promising debut in much stronger race than this at Newcastle (1m, AW) three weeks ago, where he was held up in rear, denied a clear run and then caught the eye when keeping on well for fourth; could be very hard to beat here.
