- 1m 2f 100y, Heavy
- 7 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Scored at Goodwood (1m3f) in a 12 runner field by a neck three runs ago. He was fifth of eight last time at Newbury (1m4f). Drops down in distance and returns to his last winning mark. One to consider.
Won three times last year but his form has been mixed so far in 2019. He was fourth of seven on his latest outing at Doncaster (1m2f). Has been eased 2lb by the handicapper. Has to be respected from this mark.
Was an emphatic winner at Newbury (1m2f) earlier this year, scoring by 10L. Has struggled to follow that up in four starts since then. Drops down 3lb in the weights. Needs to bounce back from latest effort at Wolverhampton (1m4f) on the AW.
Has been successful three times in his last four starts. His latest win came at Lingfield (1m5f), scoring by a neck in a six runner field. Has been raised 3lb but is back down in distance. Leading player here.
Scored at Beverley (1m2f) four runs ago but since then his form has dipped. He could only finish 10th of 13 last time at Chester (1m2½f), finishing 12L off the winner. Is capable of more than his recent efforts so has to be respected.
Finished second of eight at this course over 1m2f three starts back. Was last of six runners on her latest appearance at Ripon (1m2f). Has been eased 4lb by the handicapper which will help her chances. Has each-way claims.
Remains a maiden after eight starts. He was fifth of nine at this track over 1m last time, 9½L off the winner. Drops down 2lb in the weights and this is his first run since being gelded. Best to watch for now.
