10st 11lb

J: Mr Dominic Hislop

T: Iain Jardine

Some good results at 1m2f and 1m4f on turf last summer and has thrived on Tapeta of late, coming home in good style to win over 1m4f here two weeks ago; back up 4lb but has more to come on this surface.

9st 10lb

J: Andrew Mullen

T: Iain Jardine

Won once over hurdles and twice on turf (1m1f/1m2f) last year; making his AW debut when second of eight at Newcastle (1m2f, Tapeta) 12 days ago and that form has been boosted by the third; shouldn't have a problem with the return to this trip and is respected off 1lb higher.

W: 9st 7lb

4 yo Gelding

OR: 58

Form & Verdict
Acts on soft and good to firm; largely in good form for new stable this term; successful in low-grade handicap at Carlisle (1m) most recently, opening his account at the 21st attempt; likely to give his running.

Off the mark in Carlisle handicap (1m, good to firm) last month, then ran well behind higher-rated rival in seller here (1m1f, good to soft) eight days ago; in-form contender who has solid claims.

J: P J McDonald

T: Tristan Davidson

Still seeking his first win (0-20) but has been placed in three of his last four starts, including when a beaten favourite - third to today's rival Chinese Spirit - at Musselburgh (1m) last week; previous Carlisle form figures read 23, and he'll surely strike eventually; a possible.

Form & Verdict
Sole win came in Yarmouth handicap (11.5f, good to soft) two years ago for previous yard; 0-8 for current stable but some of the form is encouraging; possibilities on these terms, receiving 10lb from all her rivals.

Drops below 0-60 level for the first time with a new headgear combination given a go, but just 1-26 and has never raced over a trip this short; too much to prove for comfort.

J: Kevin Stott

T: Rebecca Menzies

Just 1-25, but the return to this trip should suit and she is 7lb lower than when third of 11 at Wolverhampton (1m4f, Tapeta) in June; a player if she can reproduce that sort of form back on the AW.

5 yo Gelding

Form & Verdict
Not in top form in two starts for new yard but the return of Archie Young is a possible plus; readily won a Lingfield selling handicap (final run for Charlie Johnston) on last attempt under this apprentice rider.
