Last run: 15 days

W: 9st 6lb

6 yo Filly

OR: 60

Form & Verdict

Positives include a C&D win, proven ability on soft ground and a reduced handicap mark; she has not found her best form this year but last time was better and the addition of blinkers could give her a lift.

Still to add to his 2yo wins but he retains ability and underfoot conditions are in his favour; big run on the cards.

3 yo Filly

OR: 60

Form & Verdict

Promise as a 2yo, especially on slow ground, and she ran her best race of this campaign when third of seven at Goodwood four weeks ago (6f, good to soft); tongue-tie joins the hood; one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Two 6f wins this year, on AW at Kempton and on fast ground at Salisbury last month; creditable third at Bath 17 days ago; just about handles good to soft but untried on soft.

Form & Verdict

Ended 2023 with a couple of promising 7f runs on Polytrack; not beaten many home in four runs since April though and comes here with too much to prove for comfort.

3 yo Filly

OR: 68

Form & Verdict

Two 6f wins when trained by Marco Botti (AW and good to firm); low-key stable debut 19 days ago and something to prove on soft going.

6 yo Gelding

OR: 68

Form & Verdict

Had a 12lb higher mark this time last year; second of 12 on AW at Wolverhampton last November is the clear pick of five runs for new stable; fully effective on soft ground and can't be discounted at this level.

8 yo Gelding

OR: 64

Form & Verdict

C&D winner; two wins in the second half of 2023 and he's only 2lb higher than for the second of them (a 4l win, albeit in a small field); not fired in 2024 but this is weaker; stable also run Cooperation.

Has gone well first time out before but she's getting on and resumes above her highest winning mark after a successful 2023; all victories have come on turf and she might need some help from the handicapper now.
