Form & Verdict
Seventh start when off the mark in good style at Yarmouth (1m2f, good to firm) in April on seasonal debut; well held, however, off this 9lb higher mark at Windsor (1m2f, good to soft) three weeks ago; his form chance relies on one race and he may need to improve on that as well.

Softer ground presumably behind his Windsor blip in April and got back on track on the Rowley Mile last time; both wins came over 1m2f (been as far as 1m4f) however, and a 7lb rise demands more coming back in trip.

Dead-heated for first in C&D handicap (good) last September, then finished third to Metal Merchant in classified contest here; ran well, despite carrying head awkwardly, at Newmarket (1m2f, good to firm) most recently; now goes in a visor (replacing usual cheekpieces); steadily progressive.

Form & Verdict
His 2023 campaign for William Haggas was underwhelming overall but he did twice reach the frame off significantly higher marks than this last July; set the pace (first time for ages) on stable/seasonal debut three weeks ago, before weakening right out of it, and others are more persuasive.

His 2023 campaign for William Haggas was underwhelming overall and he hasn't offered enough in two starts for his new yard this year to suggest a full-scale revival is imminent, beaten 9l into fourth at Newmarket latterly; first-time cheekpieces need to give him a lift.

Form & Verdict
Started handicapping over middle distances but made it five wins from five starts over about 1m this February/March on AW; his mark has now risen 20lb over that period; he seemed to stay 11.4f in one attempt last June and has been on a major roll in 2024, so can't be dismissed.

C&D winner who went very close in this race last year (good to firm) and won at Redcar (1m2f, soft) early this month; not at the same level on his two runs since and tailed off at Newmarket (1m2f, good to firm) most recently, but perhaps the return to slow ground will prompt a revival.

Form & Verdict
Career has been confined to 1m2f novice wins on Lingfield AW last December and this April; showed plenty of inexperience still when making all in a four-runner race last time but stacks of promise too and it would not be a surprise if he found the marked improvement necessary on this handicap debut.
