Form & Verdict

Many of his best efforts have been at this track and he was good front-running third over this trip on his soft-ground reappearance in May; pestered for the lead and weakened into seventh over the extended 7f here (good) since but that was a Class 2 and, from a handy draw, he should be a big player at this lower level; has had wind surgery ahead of this first outing in five weeks

Third in competitive handicaps around 7f on all four starts this year; likely to be in the shake-up again under a jockey who enjoys plenty of success in these events.

Improved when making all in a small field a Nottingham and backed that up when narrowly denied on follow-up bid there 15 days ago (both 6f, good to firm); in fine fettle but isn't obviously crying out for the return to 7f; yard also runs Metabolt.

Form & Verdict

AW winner over 7f at Wolverhampton on yard debut; not at best over 7f at Newmarket next time but back on track when keeping on from too far back at Wolverhampton (6f) since; there is a possibility he's not as good on turf as AW but he's a contender on those Tapeta efforts; has first-time cheekpieces added to his tongue-strap.

All three wins have come over further; still off the same mark as when successful at Kempton (7f, AW) last September and ran well when third of ten at Lingfield (7f, AW) last time; has won on fast turf so drying ground will help, but this trip is short of his best.

Form & Verdict

Back to form with a bang when making all by 3l at Thirsk (7f, soft) ten days ago; theoretically well treated under a 4lb penalty (new mark 2lb higher) but stall 11 has the potential to make life tricky for this often front-runner and he's consistently come up a little short when competing off marks in the 80s.

Usually seen over further, but successfully dropped to this trip on stable debut at Wolverhampton (Tapeta) in December and is now 2lb lower; not at his best the last twice, though, so needs to bounce back; yard also runs Billyjoh.
