Form & Verdict

No win since September 2021; has done okay though since introduced to cheekpieces, with his latest Doncaster effort (6f, good; sixth of 11) suggesting that he was ready for a return to 7f; easing mark; good to soft ground ideal; chance.

Ex German racer; still a maiden (0-8) and work to do to reverse last-time course placings with Berkshire Phantom, when a never-dangerous seven of ten; 3lb lower over the shortest distance that he has tackled to date.

Form & Verdict

Runner-up on two occasions earlier this year, including under Paul Mulrennan at Wetherby (5.5f, soft; same mark); this sharp 7f is fine and he's handily drawn in stall 6; probably does requires a fraction more though to score from this mark; place possible.

Form & Verdict

Down the field in this race last year (eighth of 11; 66-1) and is yet to win on turf (0-22; 9-66 AW), so it isn't easy to build a compelling case; weakened late on when fourth of nine over 7.5f here last month.

Form & Verdict

Lingfield nursery winner (7f AW) last October; hasn't progressed this year, with newly applied blinkers seemingly not yielding initial improvement over 6f here (good; sixth of 12) last month; 2lb lower, and much better drawn on this occasion, so can potentially sit handier; possibilities.

4 yo Colt

OR: 68

Form & Verdict

Juvenile winner (7f) for Andrew Balding; mostly competing in higher-grade handicaps since joining Mark Loughnane; has made little impact, falling 12lb in the weights, so needs to rediscover a spark; a low draw and the booking of 5lb claimer Tommie Jakes are positives.

8 yo Gelding

Form & Verdict

Beverley specialist; prominent until weakening on recent return to action (7.5f, Beverley, good to firm; 25-1); could strip fitter for that comeback run and is likely to appreciate this easy ground back on his last winning mark; wide draw is the downside.

4 yo Gelding

OR: 69

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced on turf (0-5) and in decent shape on the AW (form figures 2142) between September and November last year; has undergone wind surgery since; safest approach is to monitor only on return from a 240-day absence.

Solid record on AW this year includes two wins at Wolverhampton; respectable fourth, despite a wide trip, over C&D most recently; now tongue tied; likely player off unaltered mark.

Maiden (0-36); fared a little better on second start back from wind surgery at Newcastle (6f AW; fourth, 40-1), but it's difficult to fancy this locally trained stablemate of Red Walls from out of the handicap.

Form & Verdict

Back from a ten-week break when scoring on turf for the first time here (7.5f, good; 16-1) last month; a subsequent 2lb rise, nor this shorter trip (as a four-time 7f AW winner), are problematic, but a wide berth in stall 10 isn't ideal; enters calculations nevertheless.

Won twice as a juvenile - over 6f at Brighton and Lingfield (AW); dropped out tamely after forcing the pace on return from a six-month absence at Ffos Las (6f, good to soft) three weeks ago; stamina isn't guaranteed over 7f; better options elsewhere.

Yet to win on turf (0-15; does handle slow ground) and form levels have dipped since winning on the AW at Chelmsford (6f; from 3lb lower) in May; weakening sixth of eight over C&D (good) four weeks ago; more required.
