J: Jason Hart

Two wins over 6f on turf for Ed Bethell last summer and now makes his debut for his new yard after seven months off; well held in his one attempt on the AW (at Newcastle); market may indicate what is expected.

Down the field last year in his two nurseries for Ralph Beckett and same story last month on first two starts for this yard; he's dropped down the weights but needs to raise his game.

Form & Verdict
Well beaten on sole turf start but that was his debut last May; progressive in 6f AW handicaps at Newcastle this year with two wins, including last time, and he's a key player if transferring his form back to turf.

Form & Verdict
Won Wetherby novice (7f, good) last month on his third start and fair sixth of 14 on subsequent handicap debut at York (7f, good to firm), where hinting that this drop back to 6f would suit; he's one to consider.

Form & Verdict
Posted fair thirds last autumn in his two nurseries (5f, soft/good to soft), when shaping as though 6f may suit better; returns having been gelded and is open to improvement for his powerful stable; unproven on fast ground (has shown promise on good going).

Didn't progress for Richard Fahey and yet to make a significant impact in three runs for this yard; latest effort did see him make some late progress and dropping into 0-50 company should help.

Failed to win in ten starts for Richard Fahey and he never really threatened at Southwell on his stable debut six weeks ago (5f); drawn widest here and the addition of cheekpieces isn't enough to tempt.
