Off time: - | Winning time: -
Yet to win on turf in this country but scored on the AW in June. Took a backward step when eighth of nine at York (1m) last month and needs a slight bounce back from the top of the weights.
Did very well when winning first two starts for this yard but might have been bogged down by 7lb rise last time when fifth at Windsor (1m2f). Eased slightly since so may find some more improvement.
Made winning start at Redcar in June and done little wrong since, including head-defeat in competitive York handicap (1m) at the end of July. Hiked up 5lb for that but may be more progression left. Shortlisted.
Landed three-runner C&D novice last year but went backwards since. Poor sixth over C&D last time out and has more questions to answer now.
Some smart form as a juvenile last year when 'soft' was in the ground description. Bombed out in two starts this term, including when last of 12 at Ripon (6f). Needs major revival.
Would be the one to beat on 27 form but only seen three times since and not to best effect. Latest 12th at Thirsk (7f) has resulted in wind surgery to try and re-find his spark.
Has a modest strike rate but seems to be coming back to himself based on two runs so far this term, including 3L fourth at Ayr (1m) on latest start. Not one to discount for minor honours.
Remains a maiden after six starts but showing promise, and put up another solid effort when 1L third at Newbury (1m) in early July. Only up 1lb since so could go well.
Rapid improver lately in handicap company. Only seen six days ago but bolted up by 10L at Pontefract (1m). Steps up to 1m2f for the first time but looks well-in under a penalty. Contender.
Striding Edge (2/1), Confide (11/4), Hlaitan (4/1), Variyann (8/1), Black Friday (12/1), Al Erayg (14/1), Modakhar (16/1), Makyon (25/1), Northgate Lad (33/1)
