Form & Verdict

Justified favouritism, beating Sugarpiehoneybunch, in a modest five-runner 1m6f handicap (Class 6) here in May; consistent since (from this mark), so rates as the clear pick of the Phil Kirby duo; fourth of 13 in this race last year.

Kept on from off the pace to down today's rival Rory The Cat (third) at Pontefract (2m1f, good; from a 3lb lower mark) last month; keen when a beaten favourite at Redcar (behind Carlton and Major Snugfit) since; still relatively low mileage.

Formerly with Rebecca Menzies; latest win came over hurdles at Hexham (2m, good) in June 2022; fared okay back on the Flat (fifth) at Redcar recently, a form line which ties in with Carlton and Sam Sarphati; others make more appeal.

Form & Verdict

Capable dual-purpose performer; has slipped to a workable mark (12lb below his last winning one) and gave a good account when second best to a progressive rival at Hamilton (1m5f) three weeks ago; 2-8 (25%) under today's rider Paul Mulrennan.

Form & Verdict

Latest win came over hurdles (juvenile) at Musselburgh on New Year's Day; shaped encouragingly on return from wind surgery at Pontefract (2m1f, good; close third to Sam Sarphati); less competitive at Hamilton since; forecast rain should suit; chance.

Maiden (0-11); runner up at Ayr (1m5f, good) in May, but form has dipped since and has masses to find with The Navigator based on Hamilton evidence; others more obvious.

Form & Verdict

Ex Irish (John Joseph Murphy); won at a similar level over 1m3f at Limerick (soft) last spring, and is unexposed as a stayer (dam won between 1m6f and 2m1f); lengthy absence to overcome, so let the market offer a guide.

Made an immediate impact this season, winning over 1m3f at Limerick in April; beaten favourite on follow-up bid at the same venue in June; stable is in fine form at the moment and his chance should be taken seriously.

Back-to-back wins last spring (Thirsk and Catterick) and, while she has limitations, she's reasonably consistent; has a couple of lengths to find with Lord Torranaga from their recent clash, but more work to do with Sam Sarphati and Rory The Cat from Pontefract.

No turf win since August 2019; won three times on the AW (2m) last year, but it's difficult to draw a great deal of confidence from either of his two efforts since returning to action; look elsewhere.

1lb higher than when scoring on Tapeta at Newcastle (2m; 28-1) last November; soundly beaten on both subsequent starts and fitness must be taken on trust returning to turf after a six-month absence.
