Took 11 attempts to open his account but seemed to respond very positively to first-time blinkers when winning readily by 5l at Newcastle (7f) on Tuesday; will be hard to beat under 5lb penalty if in similar form again.

Not yet off the mark but has been consistent over middle distances on Polytrack and Tapeta of late and it was her bad luck at Wolverhampton (1m4f) recently to run up against one who made a dramatic return to form; unraced on this track but her turn shouldn't be far away.
