Often leads; hat-trick over 7f for Ivan Furtado in the spring, on AW and turf (heavy), but he faded over the extended 7f here when last seen in July and now tries his luck for a new yard; in a higher grade than for his wins and is drawn high.

J: Kieran O’Neill

T: Ivan Furtado

Versatile 6yo has won his last three starts including at Catterick (7f, heavy) and Lingfield (7f, Polytrack) in his last two runs; up another 4lb but he is as a good as ever and is strongly respected in his bid for a four-timer.

Form & Verdict
Soundly beaten at Thirsk and Wolverhampton the last twice and it's possible he's gone off the boil, but he's won four times over C&D this season (soft-good to firm) and could get back on track with a big run now back here.

Four wins this season at Catterick have seen his turf mark go up 20lb and he's much better treated on the AW now; boasts a patchy record on Tapeta but always round Newcastle and this course ought to suit better.

J: James Sullivan

Has been in fine form this season with four wins over this trip at Catterick, the latest on soft ground last week; 4lb penalty to overcome, but conditions suit and he could go well again (has won over 6f on the straight course here).

Form & Verdict
Completed five-timer in 2021 (including wins on soft/heavy); unable to get competitive more recently but didn't run badly in August/September on first two starts for this yard, and the testing ground and reduced mark are interesting factors today; wears a first-time hood.

Inconsistent since completing a five-timer in 2021 and is not solid judged on form for present yard; however, has possibilities off current mark provided he takes well to first-time blinkers.

Form & Verdict
3yo who is 0-12 but he returned to form when going very close at Pontefract (1m, good to soft) recently and has run well on soft/heavy ground in the past; he's a contender if once more on a going day.
