Form & Verdict

Forged clear for 1m2f win at Pontefract (soft) on second start for yard in May; lesser efforts over further in cheekpieces on next two starts but he gave it a good shot back over 1m2f at Leicester (good to soft; no headgear) recently and had good-ground form in Ireland; solid claims.

Form & Verdict

Suited by good and quicker ground; went close over C&D in July 2022 and triple winner under Olivia Tubb in 2023, twice making all; below best at Newbury last week but quite capable of returning to form after a modest run, as shown last summer; not ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Well beaten more often than not since winning a 7f maiden at Newbury as 2yo; suffered a heavy defeat last time out but he is 11lb lower than when third of eight over the extended 1m here (good) in October so has possibilities on a good day.

Form & Verdict

Three AW wins in 2023, including handicaps at 1m and 1m4f; out of sorts in midwinter on final starts for Gay Kelleway but she has turf form (despite being 0-4 on grass) and not dismissed off quite favourable mark with headgear left off.

Bagged three wins last year, most recent came off this mark here (1m4f); form has gone the wrong way since and more severe headgear (hood replaces cheekpieces) probably needs to help.

Ready winner over this trip at Kempton in August and had an excuse when fourth back there the following month; two runs since have been less convincing though and others appeal more.

Form & Verdict

Often leads; winner of a 1m2f classified last summer but her good efforts in defeat this year have come at 1m and 7f and she's yet to win a turf handicap; should give another good account though.

Form & Verdict

Three wins at 1m/1m2f for previous yard; some fair AW efforts for this one but beaten some way out back on turf at Yarmouth in April (first-time tongue-tie, discarded) and wind surgery since needs to have made a difference.

2lb lower than when winning on turf for Rae Guest at Lingfield (1m2f, good to firm) last summer, but has finished unplaced in all eight starts on the AW, including his last four since joining this yard; others look stronger.

Form & Verdict

Both wins over 1m and never involved on sole attempt at 1m2f, on AW in early 2023; seems to have gone off the rails of late and first-time cheekpieces have a big job to do.
