J: Ross Coakley

T: Tom Clover

Bit to prove on softish ground but he won well over C&D in July and then bumped into a sharp improver (since completed a four-timer) over 1m6f at Salisbury; only 2lb higher for this and, if handling the ground, should go very close, at the least.

J: Daniel Muscutt

Well suited by the step up to 1m3f on handicap debut when going close against a subsequent winner at Yarmouth and he wasn't too hard pressed to get off the mark at Pontefract in July (1m4f; both on good to firm); up 5lb but dam has bred two who won at 1m6f+ and he looks a good candidate for this longer trip.

Form & Verdict
Appeared to run well on second start but has regressive RPRs since, the last twice in Class 5 handicaps; this five-race maiden holds weak claims on form and needs the drop in grade to help matters.

0-13 under rules; placed a couple of times on turf for the Crisfords last year, but didn't make the grade over hurdles for this yard and not shown much back on the Flat including when behind three of these over C&D a fortnight ago.

Fair maiden for the Crisfords at up to 1m4f; hurdle career hasn't really taken off and he could prove vulnerable back in this code too.

Form & Verdict
0-6; best RPRs came in two AW attempts, including third at Wolverhampton (9.5f); still has something to prove on turf but latest effort (1m2f) suggests this new trip may prompt improvement.

Placed in low-grade handicaps at up to 2m on the Flat and ran well for a long way when upped to 3m for last month's handicap hurdle debut at Southwell (heavy); effectively 1lb higher today but might last longer on the less testing ground; dangerous to ignore.

Stablemate of Artisan Dancer; showed ability in middle-distance events on AW, without progressing from first effort; form dipped sharply at Wetherby on turf/handicap debut and has a bit to prove now.

Form & Verdict
Prescott filly who has taken five races, all at about 7f last year, to get a mark; has not finished closer than midfield but looks very much the type to improve now handicapping and upped in distance; interesting on reappearance, especially if the market speaks favourably.

Form & Verdict
Went close at Southwell (1m3f, AW) on handicap/seasonal debut; that form lacks strength and he suffered a heavy defeat at Haydock (11.5f, good to soft) since but this drop back to Class 6 may suit.
