Form & Verdict
Has a patchy profile and was never involved at Ayr on Friday but he's 3-4 at this track including a clearcut win over C&D (good) on his penultimate run; this is a quick turnaround after Ayr but it wouldn't be a surprise if he bounced back with a big run back at this course; has won on good to firm and soft.

Swept through to win at Ayr (1m, good to firm) in June but hasn't been in the same form since and his effort flattened out back at Ayr on Friday; well handicapped off 2lb lower than for last success but he needs to rediscover his spark.

All five AW wins have come on the Fibresand at Southwell; unconvincing on the other surfaces but this represents a drop in grade for him and it will be no surprise to see him show up more prominently, especially if there is any market interest.

Three wins over 1m1f at Carlisle this season; runner-up there in his last four outings, most recently over 1m 12 days ago; on career-high mark away from his favoured track here but he's versatile ground-wise and is respected back up in trip.

Ended a long losing run at Hamilton (1m, good) in August and ran well over the same C&D ten days later, but well held when returned to the AW here (8.6f) last month; tackles this far for the first time since the start of 2020 and although he has gone close over it at Newcastle, his overall profile suggests he is one to take on.

8yo who surged clear when scoring off reduced mark at Hamilton (8.3f) in August; never-dangerous second when unpenalised there ten days later and a 7lb rise has now kicked in, but he remains well treated on his old form and has won on Tapeta at Newcastle in the past; respected after short break.

Stable has been among the winners and boasts a fair record here; this regressive 8yo was in good form in late summer but has been hit with a 7lb rise for his easy Hamilton win and needs more from the outside stall (he is usually dropped in).
