Form & Verdict

Ordinary form in his first four starts on the AW, but having been gelded he showed more when beaten just over a length into third of six on turf/handicap debut at Yarmouth (1m2f, soft) in April; the first and fourth have won since and although he has to prove himself on faster ground, that latest form entitles him to plenty of respect; cheekpieces given a go.

2-4 since fitted with cheekpieces in the summer, the latter win gained at Kempton (1m3f) last month; slightly disappointing when upped to 1m4f there 18 days ago but further progress remains possible.

He didn't have to improve to get off the mark in a small-field novice at Doncaster in June (1m2f, good; cheekpieces for the first time); below that level at Pontefract last month but there is still time for him to deliver an improved showing.

Form & Verdict

Both starts in 7f AW novices, improving from his debut when fourth of 12 at Lingfield this month; some stamina in his pedigree and a contender if taking another step forward on turf debut; hood enlisted.

Form & Verdict

Backed in from 50-1 to 11-2 when getting up to win a Dundalk maiden (1m, AW) on his debut last November (form nothing special despite race having produced a couple of winners); changed hands for 75,000gns the following month and makes stable/turf debut after 224 days off; some stamina on the dam's side and remains completely unexposed.

J: Brandon Wilkie

T: Alan King

Lightly-raced 4yo; hurdle winner in December; improvement required to defy this mark back on the Flat but a good apprentice has been booked and he still has untapped potential over the trip.

Beaten a long way in two 1m Thirsk maidens (heavy/good to firm); plenty more needed and not bred to appreciate the longer trip.
