Form & Verdict
Was snapping a 17-race losing run and making his AW debut on his 56th outing when successful at Newcastle (1m2f) last month; 4lb higher, but the third and fourth won their next starts so respected back on turf; one of two for stable that won both divisions of this in 2018.

Form & Verdict
Stable has a good recent record in this race and he doubled his winning tally when just getting up at Ripon (1m, good) ten days ago; just 2lb higher and ran well in his only previous attempt at this trip when a close third at Redcar (good) last month, but whether he will see it out on this stiffer track remains questionable.

Form & Verdict
Last two wins have come under Brodie Hampson and has dropped 4lb below the latest of those at Redcar (1m2f, soft) in October 2020; better effort when fourth of six at Brighton (1m4f, good to firm) last time and the winner has gone in again since; respected if benefting from the switch to blinkers from cheekpieces.

Six-race maiden whose best effort was when second in a big field at Redcar (1m, soft) in April, but not built on it in either start since; stamina looked to be an issue when well beaten at Hamilton (1m1f, good) in May and he returns from a short break with enough to prove.

Verdict

The switch to Micky Hammond has seen big improvement from Milltown Lily (second choice) who would be a major player if stepping up from her recent near-miss over C&D, while the course specialist Zihaam and Menin Gate are others to consider. However, the vote goes to the 3yo CIANCIANA, who has twice run well to finish second since stepped up to this trip and may still have more to offer at the distance. Just Hiss may prove best of the Tim Easterby pair.[David Bellingham]
