Form & Verdict
Soft-ground winner in Britain in 2021, then failed to score in Hong Kong in 2022 or 2023; placed on AW in his first two starts since rejoining James Fanshawe but he didn't really fire when favourite back on turf at Doncaster (1m2f, soft) last month; now goes back up in trip and down in grade but he needs to step up again after that last run.

Form & Verdict
Won off 1lb higher at Kempton (1m3f, AW) on her comeback in December but she's not gone on from that and was laboured at Lingfield (behind Lexington Knight) three weeks ago; conditions should be fine on this switch back to turf but that was a major blip last time and others are more convincing.

J: William Pyle

T: Charlie Johnston

Won from off the pace at Kempton in December (1m3f) but usually races prominently; well boxed to get a good early position but she raced freely out in front back at Kempton last time and didn't get home (finished behind Eleanor Cross); not entirely sure what to expect but she's capable on her day.

Form & Verdict
Multiple AW scorer who has also won on fast and soft ground on turf; creditable third off this mark on AW (1m4f) in his last two runs and latest was in a 16-runner event at Lingfield; should go well again back on turf and he's respected.

Form & Verdict
Dual turf winner over an extended 1m3f (soft/good) last August; hasn't been at the top of his game in two AW runs this spring but he had an excuse over 1m6f last time and is now back on his last winning mark; one of two runners for Richard Hannon and looks interesting back on turf.

Dual turf winner over an extended 1m3f last August and has run well in both starts since back on the AW, including when fourth of ten on his Wolverhampton return (1m4f, Tapeta) 12 days ago; however, 1m5f just appeared to stretch him on his penultimate start so there are risks.

Form & Verdict
Didn't really progress in five novice/maiden events last year but he found improvement on his handicap debut when forging clear at Pontefract (1m2f, heavy; 4-1) two weeks ago; a 3lb rise for that success looks fair and he's a big player again back up in trip.

Respectable efforts in four of his five starts and there were excuses for the no-show; however, his profile is not one of a progressive horse and ground this soft is an unknown.

Form & Verdict
Made all for an easy win at Goodwood (1m1f, soft) last August and he followed up over C&D (1m4f, good) in a race he also won two years earlier; no joy in amateur jockeys' Cambridgeshire in final run last season but he still looks feasibly treated and has won when fresh in the past; needs watching in market back here on his return.

Made all for an easy win at Goodwood (1m1f, soft) and followed up at Brighton (1m4f, good) in a race he also won two years earlier; up another 4lb for that but he gels with Simon Walker and it's hard to envisage him not having some say.
