Runner-up in good-ground sprint handicaps on his last three starts; more required to defy this mark though and his draw isn't ideal.

3 yo Filly

OR: 62

Form & Verdict

Impressed with the way she travelled at Redcar on May's handicap debut; slipped at the start at Thirsk three weeks ago and finished well held; unraced on faster than good to soft; still has potential.

8 yo Gelding

OR: 70

Form & Verdict

C&D winner; two years since his last victory but he's been running well in Class 5 events this year; not so good at York (Class 4) last month and the outside stall dents confidence this time.

4 yo Colt

OR: 58

Form & Verdict

Drawn wide when second to Cavalier Approach over C&D last week and he's fared better in that department today; 5lb better off this time and should give his running again.

6 yo Gelding

OR: 66

Form & Verdict

Well treated now and although things haven't clicked yet for this yard, his run here last week was promising (fluffed the start but running on well at the finish); stall 1 a positive but only if he breaks on terms.

4 yo Colt

OR: 55

Form & Verdict

Made all to win a 5f handicap (soft) at Ripon last month, his second start for this yard; not so good on quicker ground at Nottingham 12 days ago, albeit he overdid things up front; other pace to contend with and this is a rise in class.

4 yo Colt

OR: 67

Form & Verdict

Off the mark for the season when seeing off 11 rivals over C&D last week, always well positioned and sealing matters with a decisive burst over 1f out; looks well treated under a penalty and he's copped another favourable draw; strong claims.

Popped up at Hamilton last month (5f, good to firm), showing a stiff 5f was no problem; creditable run on AW last time; well drawn and holds each-way claims.

W: 9st 6lb

4 yo Gelding

OR: 60

Form & Verdict

Refused to race on final two runs for Amanda Perrett and again in one appearance for Ian McInnes in December; has the ability to go well but he's not a solid betting proposition starting out for another new yard.

Record of 2-20 for Amanda Perrett; blotted his copybook by refusing to race the last twice; subsequently sold for 2,000gns; comes with major risk on debut for new connections.

C&D winner in May and he got off the mark on turf in a small field at Salisbury last month; any compelling form claims he may have now need offsetting against his refusal to race at Sandown a fortnight ago.
