Form & Verdict
Improved his record to 2-3 when scoring at Musselburgh (1m, good to soft) on seasonal return but he's not gone on from that and has finished in rear in last three starts; back on last winning mark now but he needs major revival on this drop back in trip; hood added.

Form & Verdict
Built on his promising debut second at Doncaster when scoring at Wolverhampton (7f, AW) in April; found things tough in Listed race at Sandown next time but he resumed his progress when a clear second in C&D handicap (good to firm) ten days ago; that was in a small-field but he didn't get much luck before finishing well and is a big player off the same mark here.

Only fourth of seven at Redcar (1m, good to firm) three weeks ago but that slowly run race didn't play to his strengths; ten days earlier he was second of five there (1m, good to firm) on handicap debut, when he had to wait for a clear passage; this should be run to suit; could have a big say.

Form & Verdict
Made it third time lucky when landing a 1m Musselburgh maiden (first run after wind op) on his return in May; went very close at Pontefract (1m, good to firm) in his second handicap and he travelled well for a long way when third at Carlisle (1m1f) last time; could kick on again on this drop back in trip and he looks interesting for yard that won this in 2016 and 2018.

Form & Verdict
Ended his time with Charlie Hills with a nursery win (ninth attempt) at Newmarket (7f, good) last October; respectable effort at Doncaster on his second run for this yard but he's still 6lb higher than for his win and needs more improvement on this step back up to 1m.

Form & Verdict
Started his career with a 50-1 win in a Southwell maiden (1m, AW) in April; was only narrowly denied under a penalty at Thirsk (1m, good) next time but he couldn't pose a threat when sixth on his handicap debut at Carlsle last month; still unexposed but this looks tough than last time and he needs to resume his progress.

Won a 5f Beverley novice last summer; record of 0-5 in handicaps but she went close at Carlslie (7f) last month before another good second on the step up to 1m at Hamilton (good to firm) last time; travelled smoothly for a long way way in that race and she's respected off an unchanged mark.

Form & Verdict
Runner-up in a C&D maiden (good) on his debut in May; has had tough assignments in both subsequent runs but she was a respectable third behind two smart rivals at Ayr last time; this is more realistic on handicap debut and and he's one to keep an eye on.
