Form & Verdict

Ran to a modest level at Redcar on his debut last month (7f, soft) but showed the benefit of that experience when lowering the colours of a warm order over C&D 16 days ago, staying on strongly; penalty demands more but he's bred to be useful and could prove up to the task.

Dual Kempton winner as a 2yo who's been expensive to follow in handicaps, getting turned over at 3-1 or shorter on six occasions; pulled hard in the visor back from a short break over C&D last week (third form of headgear tried).

Form & Verdict

Made all in a 7f event at Newmarket on his nursery debut in August; runner-up over C&D and at Catterick in September (RPR of 88 on both occasions) before fluffing his lines on soft ground at Goodwood in October; sets the standard and should make another bold bid.

Looked promising early in his career but although he's been reliable since December, he hasn't managed to win this year; the handicapper has given him a chance, now 5lb lower than when second over C&D in June on his most recent AW run; other pace to contend with today.

Improved form when runner-up in Lingfield novice (1m, AW) in February but he's been beaten around 8l in both runs since including on handicap debut at Chelmsford ten days ago; has raced freely at times and now drops to 6f but his record stands at 0-6 and others are more convincing.

Runner-up on penultimate start (Lingfield, 1m novice) but, after racing freely, was weak in the closing stages when upped-in-trip at Wolverhampton (9.5f). Blinkers are added for handicap debut, presumably in an attempt to curb that enthusiasm; possibilities.

Won over C&D (good to firm) on last summer's stable debut and ran big race from the front when third on seasonal reappearance at Newbury (1m5f, good) in July; not seen to same effect on soft ground last month but still has fairly low mileage and could be dangerous if allowed to dominate.
