Form & Verdict
Started well for this yard, including a 7f win at Wolverhampton in November off just 2lb lower; he wasn't at his best at Wolverhampton a fortnight ago but that was his first run for eight weeks; Billy Loughnane back on board and a visor is now added; capable of a big run.

C&D winner who put some lesser efforts behind him when racing prominently and coming out on top in a protracted duel at Kempton (7f, Polytrack) latest; back up 4lb; not ruled out but his inconsistency is a concern.

Form & Verdict
Well backed when making a winning stable debut at Southwell last month (7f; solid form); beaten at odds-on at Lingfield last week when he carried his head very awkwardly (didn't get a clear run); Oisin Murphy takes over today and he's still well treated judged on the Southwell run.

J: Oisin Murphy

Made a successful stable debut after five months off here (7f) in February, but has been a beaten favourite in all three outings since; won over 1m in Ireland, so the return to this trip is not a problem, and he won when blinkered for the first time, so interesting to see if the application of cheekpieces has a similar effect.

Three-time turf winner but her record on AW currently stands at 0-28; she has finished second in her last two visits to Kempton, however, the latest of them last week, and she looks more likely to run her race than some.

Form & Verdict
Won twice over C&D when trained by Mark Johnston; struggled since joining this yard, dropping 20lb in the process, but his recent Southwell run didn't suggest he was ready to exploit his lowly mark; now drops into his first 0-55.

Has dropped a long way in the weights since his last win in April 2021; has shaped as though he would appreciate the return to 1m in his last two starts, but all five wins have come over 7f and he has finished no closer than sixth in ten previous attempts at this sort of trip.

2-35, both over 7f here as 4yo; attempting 1m2f for the first time when fifth of 12 in a 0-55 C&D handicap five weeks ago (Dillydingdillydong second) and that effort may have been even better than it looked as he was still in front coming to the last half-furlong; one to be interested in.
