It's hard to ignore the claims of MIDNIGHT WILDE (nap), who looked to have improved for a winter off and being gelded when narrowly touched off for tonight's jockey over C&D 11 days ago. There didn't appear to be any fluke about that and he's 5lb well in. Beringer is a viable each-way alternative.[Graham Wheldon]

Fair amount of racing last year but has improved for being gelded on the evidence of his comeback second over C&D 11 days ago (trainer had a 50-1 winner the same afternoon); no surprise to see him out again, with a 5lb rise coming at the weekend.

Well held in three novice events last backend and then gelded; blinkers on for his AW handicap debut last month, when slowly away and said to have hung in behind rivals before coming home well; Ryan Moore the man for the job switched to a visor.

Closely matched with Morning Skye on Newcastle running in March (gelded prior to that) and ran to a similar level on Polytrack last time; tongue-tie now added; no reason why he won't go well on his turf debut.

Couple of expensive defeats since beating Sportswriter narrowly on his AW debut in March; needs to improve for tackling decent turf ground for the first time off this sort of mark.

Ordinary Nottingham handicap in which she surprised last month not working out and she arguably stepped up on that in defeat last time; another 2lb higher tonight and has to improve again on this different ground.

Entitled to have needed his recent comeback from nine months off, following a gelding and a wind operation, and some promise in a race not run to suit; yard's jumpers been in good form and one to consider.

Speed on the dam's side and he's going beyond 1m for the first time on his handicap debut having been gelded; stable could be in better form and needs to step up a good deal on his AW comeback effort.

None of his three AW seconds worked out since and will need to step up on previous turf efforts now handicapping, albeit soft ground was probably against him behind the useful Corelli last time (distant last of three).

High in the weights on the evidence of three handicap runs this spring; dropped 3lb prior to this first try at beyond 1m but will need to improve a good bit for the stiffer test (dam produced mainly 7f winners).

Went the wrong way on Fibresand over the winter and a poor turf/handicap debut last month on soft ground; tried in first-time headgear and little to recommend him.
