A dual 7f winner last spring but he beat only one on his reappearance in 7f Newcastle handicap 30 days ago; yard is going really well though so it would come as no surprise if he bounced back off a falling mark.

Sole AW win was in this race last year, when 4b higher; went into that race in better form than he does this time around but he's not one to write off.

Accounted for Without Delay (third) when a comfortable C&D winner (from a 5lb higher mark) last October; recent efforts have been less convincing; trainer also represented by Gobi Sunset; best watched.

Tailed-off last (raced freely and hampered) over 1m at Redcar last time, but enters calculations off a workable mark back at this venue; runner-up to in-form Kelpie Grey (Gobi Sunset third) over C&D in May, and successful on her only other visit to Musselburgh; stablemate of Code Purple.

Form & Verdict

Stepped up on reappearance effort when doing strong late work to collar a clear leader at Ayr (7f, good to firm) 11 days ago, recording a first turf success; more to do from this 7lb higher mark but has run well here (over 1m) in the past; shortlisted.

Form & Verdict

Regularly placed; beaten by a neck (Ayr) and a short-head (Carlisle) before posting a lesser effort at Chester last time, when possibly overstretched by the 7.5f trip; no win since the summer of 2022, so looks set for minor honours at best.

4 yo Colt

OR: 55

Form & Verdict

Dual AW winner (5f-6f); runner-up three times this year, including when seemingly an unlucky loser at Southwell (7f) in February; has won when fresh and is competitively handicapped if ready to roll; reasonable chance of making it seventh-time lucky on turf.

Has proved to be difficult to win with since last March but he was unlucky over C&D 11 days ago, when short-headed having been denied a clear run on his first crack at 7f; major player off the same mark today.

Course scorer who arrives in decent nick, fourth of eight in 5f Newcastle handicap last month; not discounted if his stamina holds out over this longer distance.

Form & Verdict

Won twice in quick succession at Newcastle (7f) last November, but way below that level of form since and remains a turf maiden (0-10); has plenty to find with Purple Martini and Gobi Sunset on the basis of their previous C&D clash.

Form & Verdict

Winning run came to an end at Thirsk (7f, good to firm) last week but ran creditably; runs Musselburgh well (course form figures 1466431) and has C&D previous with Pembrokeshire; one to consider despite a near career-high mark.
