Form & Verdict
Had already shown ability prior to getting off the mark at the seventh attempt at Wolverhampton (8.6f, Tapeta) in November, appearing to show improvement for the step up in trip; off since and now 6lb higher, but that last race has produced winners and he still looks the one to beat.

Came good at the at the seventh attempt at Wolverhampton (8.6f) in November and followed up in a four-runner race at Newcastle (1m) on Wednesday; nicely enough on top in the latter but has 6lb penalty in a better race now.

J: Oisin Orr

He ran his best race so far when second of ten in a 7f nursery at Southwell early last month; that form has taken some knocks since so he will need improvement for today's longer trip if he is to overcome a 2lb rise.

Form: 687-3

Last run: 22 days

W: 9st 8lb

3 yo Colt

OR: 73

Form & Verdict
Hinted at ability in three starts over 6f/7f on turf last year and, having been gelded, he showed improvement when a close third of six on handicap/AW debut at Chelmsford (1m, Polytrack) this month, despite still showing signs of greenness; may come on for that first start in 102 days and this stiffer track may suit him; respected.

Form & Verdict
Beaten seven times since his successful debut at Pontefract (6f, good to firm) last August when trained by Ed Dunlop, but appreciated dropping back in trip when beaten a neck into second of five over C&D 13 days ago; just 1lb higher, but is the most exposed in the field and may find one or two too good.

J: Connor Beasley

Has not gone on from his successful debut for Ed Dunlop at Pontefract (6f, good to firm) in August, including in three starts on the AW since joining this yard; drops in grade and may appreciate dropping back in trip, but still readily opposed.

OR: 62

Form & Verdict
Made it sixth-time lucky when easily beating two rivals at Southwell (1m, Tapeta) a week ago, but she was probably helped by being able to control things from the front; 6lb penalty means she faces a stiff task in attempting to reverse previous C&D running with Look Back Smiling.
