Form & Verdict
He had been in action on AW prior to his easy win in the corresponding race 12 months ago (good to firm); now returns from 230 days off (has gone well fresh) and Wednesday's rain won't have been in his favour; that said, he handles good to soft and this lacks depth.

Over two years since his last win; threatened on AW this winter but he hasn't been at his best in two runs back on turf; down in the weights but others look stronger.

5 yo Filly

OR: 83

Form & Verdict
Prominent racer; wide-margin winner of an uncompetitive C&D handicap this month (soft) before a creditable fourth at Ripon nine days later (unpenalised); the recent rain won't have hurt her claims but she is now 6lb higher and might not get things her own way up front.

Has failed to match the form of her Pontefract success in two subsequent runs; all wins in single-figure fields, the last two making all; this scenario is not ideal.

Form & Verdict
Made a winning debut for this yard over 6f here (good to soft) last September; coped with the drop to 5f when third at Newcastle when last seen 199 days ago; can win more races this year but he'll need to be at his peak after an absence.

Form & Verdict
Can make the running, as when scoring at Newcastle (6f) in November off a 4lb lower mark; promising return to turf at Nottingham 13 days ago (5f, good) when only picked off close home; runs off the same mark and he should give it another good go.

Has a modest strike-rate on turf but the drop back to 5f seemed against him at Pontefract a fortnight ago and he was in good form over 6f on AW in March; could gave a part to play now back up in trip.
