Form & Verdict
Ultra-consistent this year, winning three times and going 23lb up the handicap; is proven on Tapeta but she'll need to be spot on back from three months off, having just a second run over 5f and racing off a career-high mark.

Headgear helped in the summer but he's been rather patchy since, pulling hard a couple of times since switched to blinkers; often hangs right and there are risks involved, going without any aids tonight.

Placed three times on Tapeta (5f-6f) during the AW season and recent down-the-field finish on turf return at Beverley is not viewed harshly, given it came after a break and he was poorly drawn; now 1lb lower than when scoring over C&D (good to soft) last summer; enters calculations.

Won over 7f on turf as a 4yo but seems more of a 5f specialist these days; not badly treated at present but he faded at Newcastle in January before making no serious inroads there two weeks ago; soundly beaten in both AW runs over 6f in 2022, so has a shade to prove back at this trip.

Ran on well to win a 5f handicap at Wolverhampton in December and he wasn't beaten far into fourth at Southwell ten days later; less good twice since, albeit he had plenty of use made of him into a headwind here on Friday night; not hopelessly treated and could revive.

Won four of her first six early last season but has struggled this year, coming 19lb down the weights (due to drop another 2lb from tomorrow); is competitive again now, though, and has claims on last week's Lingfield third (AW debut).

J: Ryan Sexton

Five C&D wins, the latest by a short head off 3lb higher last March; ultra-consistent during the winter, finishing a close fourth (Saaheq third) here seven weeks ago; likely to have his day again soon, but a low draw serves to temper enthusiasm.

Below-par in two runs since his Ayr win off 5lb lower, pulling hard behind Elzaal over C&D last time; this is stronger if anything and he'll need to settle better from an outside stall.

Ready winner of a 5f handicap at Newcastle in October off a 3lb lower mark (no headgear); less good in headgear in three runs since but his latest effort at Newcastle can be marked up as he travelled nicely but perhaps on the unfavoured part of the track; each-way shout.

Won twice at Chelmsford under Mia Nicholls last year and has knocked at the door in his last two starts; favourably drawn to attack but the fear factor is that he'll find this stiff 5f just too much; realistic place prospects though.
