In depth

Verdict

HEPWORTH hasn't raced for over a year but went very close to scoring on his debut at Doncaster and can make a winning return if running anywhere near the same level. Elysian disappointed over C&D last month and the jury is out on her at present while Omar Khayyam has had his chances and was returned a losing favourite at Wolverhampton last week. Gabrial's Hope finished a tailed-off fourth at Chester last time and bumper winner Jaques Vert makes his belated debut on the Flat.
