Fifth in strong 6f Newmarket handicap on reappearance; slightly underwhelming when filling the same position at Haydock next time but firmly back on the up when making all at Newmarket (7f, good to firm) last weekend; 3lb rise is fair enough; should go well.

Form & Verdict
Both wins at 6f; creditable third over the sharp 7f at Epsom (good to firm) last week but shaped as if he ideally needs a return to sprinting; perhaps again vulnerable to stronger finishers.

Form & Verdict
Listed winner at two and ran to a similar level on AW early this year (both 6f); not in anything like the same form since, including over 7f; well treated on best RPRs but major revival is required.

Useful 2yo, just touched off in a sales race on this card before winning a York Listed (good to soft); turf form this year bears no resemblance but 23lb lower than on return to grass in July and perhaps discarding regular headgear will have a sweetening effect now down in grade.

6f 2yo Listed winner at York last October and he's well handicapped on that form; however, he's been a long way below that level this summer and a visor made little difference last time; plenty to prove.

Bids for a hat-trick, having won 7f handicaps on good ground at Yarmouth and Haydock the last twice, well on top at the finish under William Buick both times; may well improve further and commands respect in current form.

Form & Verdict
Ex-Irish 3yo who is 3-3 for new yard, the wins gained in 7f contests at sharp tracks on good ground; open to further progress and has clear possibilities if taking to this straight, galloping course.

Won his first three starts on turf (7f, good) after joining this yard in the summer, but disappointing when last of five at Newmarket (7f, good) in September; ran well a couple of times on the Dundalk Polytrack for his previous yard, but he needs to put that latest effort behind him.
