Form & Verdict
Had excuses with one thing and another since 7f course win off today's mark early in 2023; can take a grip and is usually dropped in so the harder they go the better but not certain to get this run to suit.

Not as good as he was and has been forced out of 0-50 classified company after two course wins this month; has been found another good opening, though, and has to enter calculations.

Expensive to follow lately and will need to settle better than on last two runs over 1m; he's 7lb better off with Tom Tulliver than when not far behind him over C&D this month, however, so needs considering.

0-16; produced a series of consistent efforts earlier in the year, including on Tapeta here and at Southwell (1m); has failed to beat a single rival though in four starts since finishing runner-up at Pontefract in May; risky, and really needs to change of headgear to have the desired effect.

Entitled to have needed his first run since last June when just behind Galton at Newcastle recently (1m); is a regressive maiden but he goes well on Tapeta and the fitting of headgear has helped; player.

Well held last season, aside from his Kempton win (always in the right place) and returns from nine months off on a career-high mark (upped 4lb); is a half-brother to a Tapeta winner but would want to see some support after such a layoff.

C&D winner who has returned to form with a comfortable success here (9.4f) and a close second at Brighton (1m2f) in his last two runs; remains feasibly treated on his best form and he's a key player on this step back up to 1m4f.

Best efforts for Bryan Smart came on turf and he's pulled hard more than once over 1m which would be a concern back from six months off; sold 4,000gns since last seen; has gone well fresh and market will guide for new yard.
