Class 5 | 5f | Standard | 10 Runners | Allweather
Off time: 13:26 | Winning time: 1m 0.11s
One of the more consistent runners in the line-up. Holds a few of these comfortably on the form of his third at York (5f; good) last time out. Top-weight to defy but improvement seemingly hasn't tailed off just yet.
Backwards step when last seen at Ripon (6f; good). In decent form prior to that though, and the form of his second to Sunset Breeze at this track on his seasonal debut gives him definite claims.
First-time hood applied and it will need to have a major revival effect after she failed to beat a single rival home at York (5f; good). Produced largely quiet performances since breaking her duck at Ripon last year. Look elsewhere.
Should appreciate the ease in grade. Definite player on the form of his third at Redcar (5f; good) in June, and he is 2lb below his last winning mark. Needs to bounce back but a player if market spoke in favour of him.
Drops back to the minimum trip for the first time since debut effort in May last year. Unable to build upon solid seasonal return to action when second to the impressive Oakenshield over 6f at this track.
Consistent filly has been dropped 1lb for a rare below-par effort when only sixth at Catterick (5f; good) last time out. Return to this C&D is a positive, and no surprise to see her be competitive despite looking vulnerable for win purposes.
Hard to fancy at the moment. Ran as could have been expected when sent off at 100-1 and finishing down the field at Ripon (6f; good) last month. Dropped another 5lb but showing no signs on capitalising on reduced mark.
Back to form when third at Sandown (5f; good to firm) last week. That was just his third start in a handicap so there could be more to come off a 3lb lower mark and sole career victory came on AW.
Sole career success came over C&D. Far from disgraced in defeat the last twice. Had excuses when hanging badly left last time out (lost two shoes). First time cheekpieces may bring about some improvement so not totally discounted.
Drop back to the minimum trip looked to work when he posted a more encouraging effort to place for the first time at Beverley (5f; good to firm). Form of that contest working out well with the runner-up going in since.
