Off the mark at the 13th attempt at Wolverhampton (7f, AW) last October, but out of the frame over the same C&D the following month; may be best on good or faster ground on turf and has something to prove back from eight months off.

Form & Verdict

Stable has won two of the last three runnings, including with this gelding (from 3lb higher) three years ago (followed up back here a week later); still off his last winning mark and return to 7f should suit; acts on any ground and highly respected.

0-11 for Mick Appleby, though made the frame six times including on soft/heavy ground; may see the trip out better on this sharper track, but the market may be the best indication of what is expected on stable debut after seven months off.

Form & Verdict

Bids for a hat-trick off a 6lb higher mark after wins at Brighton (1m, good) and Lingfield (7f, good to firm); ran poorly in one start on ground softer than good, though, which is a concern; one of two runners for stable that has won two of the last three runnings.

Form & Verdict

Sole success in 11 starts came over C&D (soft) 11 months ago when trained by Ali Stronge; only beat one home on stable debut after 242 days off at Salisbury (7f, good to firm) last month, but she may come on from it and the likely ground conditions here should suit her much better; stable also runs Guiteau.

T: Ali Stronge

Has a patchy record in her nine starts but she won on soft at Epsom (7f) in August and went very close at Leicester (7f, good to soft) last Tuesday; now returns to sprinting but she still has potential and looks interesting off same mark as last time.

1m turf winner in Germany and scored twice at Lingfield (7f, AW) at the start of the year; 3lb below his latest winning mark, but his efforts since then don't suggest this will be his day.

Form & Verdict

Won his first two starts over this trip on the AW when switched to a visor in May, but only third of five in his hat-trick bid back on turf at Ffos Las (7.4f, good to soft) last month; ground on the easy side of good no problem, but a bit more needed to defy this mark in the returning cheekpieces.

Better effort when beaten less than a length into second of ten at Kempton (6f, AW) a week ago; 1lb well in and has gone close over this far, but a record of 2-23 (0-9 on turf) is a concern and soft ground would be another question.

Back off the same mark as when successful at Southwell (1m, AW) in March and has run with credit on turf since; has run well on soft ground and this may be his optimum trip; shortlisted.
