Form & Verdict
Not the force of old but still highly capable and today's mark under a penalty pales next to the RPR of last week's eased-down Wolverhampton success; effectiveness over 6f on a sound surface was reaffirmed by several near-misses off this mark and higher last summer.

Had form swings for new connections in 2023 but showed what could be done when impressive in the Stewards' Cup (6f, heavy) at Goodwood in July; latest win, over 5f at Doncaster in October, was also on heavy but he acts on good ground, too, and now just 1lb higher than at Doncaster.

Showed an aptitude for the mud last season, winning the Stewards' Cup and a good handicap at Doncaster in October, the latter off just 2lb lower; has slipped down the weights after three runs this winter and ridden by the stable jockey in preference to Summerghand and Misty Grey; strong contender.

Form & Verdict
Finds a race most years, and although all her wins (two C&D) have come on softer than good, her near-2l second to Vince Lombardi here in May reaffirmed effectiveness on good ground; back to within 1lb of her last winning mark.

Has returned from a short break in good form, bettering last December's Southwell win (5f, Tapeta) when 1l second at Wolverhampton (5f, Tapeta) this month; another good effort when third here (6f) on Friday; still a bit to prove over this far but should be involved.

Form & Verdict
All three wins gained over a galloping 6f, notably a career-best effort over C&D two runs back (good; Iris Dancer over 2l second); drop to 5f appeared more the issue than the penalty at Pontefract since, and he's respected again despite being 7lb above that latest winning mark.

J: P J McDonald

T: Grant Tuer

Essentially very disappointing after a Carlisle win last summer that promised so much (6f, good); still looks well handicapped if he can rediscover his mojo and his Doncaster reappearance isn't the run to judge him on as the ground was deep and he pulled far too hard through the first two furlongs; wouldn't be suited by a tactical affair but there is pace in this field and he could have a big run in him.

Form & Verdict
Came in from the cold in handicaps latest, nearly making all at Yarmouth (6f, good to firm) in the first-time hood; player off the same mark, for all that he'd face competition if attempting the same tactic here.

In great form (on ground softer than good) since returned to 7f, notably for wins at this track and Newbury; however, the issues are a 6lb penalty and return to forecast faster surface; future mark is 2lb lower.

Form & Verdict
Form of Chelmsford fourth in March (7f) worked out fine but well below that level there since; back to within 1lb of his one winning mark, and posted a solid second in a C&D 0-80 off today's mark a year ago.

Won off 4lb higher at Lingfield (7f, AW) last summer but he's not matched that form since; sold out of Richard Fahey's stable for 11,000gns in July and takes a significant step up in trip on this first run for new connections; best watched unless the betting strongly hints otherwise.
