Form & Verdict

Dual winner here (1m6f/2m) in the autumn of 2022 and was having his second start back from a nine-month absence when making all and winning easily at Newmarket (1m6f, good to firm) 15 days ago; was held up for both previous wins and has a big chance of following up from 4lb higher.

OR: 72

Form & Verdict

3-6 on the AW so far this year with all wins coming at around this trip, the latest at Kempton (Polytrack) last month; 3lb higher in a much stronger race, but folly to dismiss him in his current mood.

Form & Verdict

Record in AW handicaps reads 1141; has suffered three heavy defeats on turf since making a successful reappearance off 2lb lower at Kempton (2m, Polytrack) in April and needs the return to this surface to spark a resurgence.

6 yo Gelding

OR: 87

Form & Verdict

Losing run up to 15 but he has only raced twice on the AW before, including winning a four-runner event here (1m6f) in September 2021; still has to conclusively prove his stamina for 2m but could go well.

6 yo Gelding

OR: 91

Form & Verdict

Smart form on Tapeta early last year, including wins at around 2m at Wolverhampton and Newcastle a good second in the AW Marathon Championship, but not in the same form since despite a falling mark; wind surgery since last seen will need to have made a difference.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark at Ffos Las (1m4f, good to soft; first-time tongue-tie) last August, but little in three starts on turf (1m4f/1m6f) since (underwent wind surgery before penultimate outing); ran well in only previous AW start (runner-up on Tapeta as a 2yo), but still has enough to prove for now.

Form & Verdict

Bit of a mixed bag on turf since this time last year and still 2lb higher than when winning narrowly at Newmarket (1m6f, good to firm) in May; possibilities on his best form if seeing out the longer trip on AW debut.

OR: 77

Form & Verdict

2-4 on the AW, her latest win coming at Kempton (2m, Polytrack) last September; only just beaten on her Ascot reappearance (2m, good to soft) in May and although disappointing at Goodwood (2m, good) four weeks ago, the first-time tongue-tie she wore there is quickly removed; shortlisted.
