Seems to have retained some ability since returning from a mammoth absence last September, staying on steadily in his recent races; now 10lb below his last winning mark and 1-1 in Class 6 handicaps; worth a second look.

Form & Verdict

Won a weak novice event at Newcastle (6f, Tapeta) on his penultimate start; has put up significantly better efforts here either side of that in handicaps (7f/1m); half-brother to two winners over this trip, so may be able to improve now back at 1m2f; interesting.

Expensive to follow since winning his novice late last year (6f, Tapeta), including when pulling hard over C&D last month; yard has made a bright start, though, and this mark should be within range under an experienced 7lb claimer if more amenable.

Sprang a 25-1 surprise off this mark over 1m2f at Newcastle (Tapeta) last August; inconsistent since then but has shaped a little better again on his last two starts; not ruled out.

He had dropped a long way in the weights prior to his C&D win last month; followed up at Wolverhampton (extended 1m) three days later and he went very close in his hat-trick bid back at Wolverhampton last week; due to be 2lb higher from the weekend and another good run looks on the cards.

Seven-time Tapeta winner who sits 12lb below his last winning mark (dead-heat over 1m2f at Newcastle in February 2022); out of sorts lately, with hopes seemingly pinned on the change of scenery - a first ever visit to Southwell - and a drop back to 1m working the oracle.

Form & Verdict

C&D winner last November; has raced freely on two most recent starts, being held at Southwell (1m, Tapeta), before swooping late at Wolverhampton (9.5f, Tapeta) latest; looks to have more to come, particularly if the race is run at a good gallop; hood goes on.

Form & Verdict

Broke his duck at the fifth attempt at Wolverhampton (8.5f, Tapeta; handicap debut) on penultimate start; 7lb rise may have found him out at Kempton last time; now tries to bounce back trying a trip over which he'll need to prove his stamina.
