Form & Verdict

Successful on only one of his 16 starts but he did make a sound start for his new yard when runner-up (Protected Guest just behind in third) over C&D 22 days ago; probably needs to build on that but stable's decent form provides hope.

1lb below his last winning mark, but yet to rediscover peak form form in four starts since returning from a mammoth absence in December; may not have achieved much when second of three behind Crimson King in a slowly run contest at Lingfield (1m4f, Polytrack) last month; others more convincing.

Predictably not up to a Kempton Listed race last time but he'd done very well in handicaps for this yard prior to that, reaching the frame on eight of nine starts, including a Polytrack win; also narrowly denied off only 1lb lower at Kempton in November; ought to be very competitive.

Form & Verdict

Excellent start for this yard with wins at Newmarket (1m) and over 1m2f here (AW) last summer; found the Cambridgeshire and a big-field 1m2f York handicap too much to handle on his two subsequent starts last season but could get back on track in these slightly calmer waters; successful over this trip earlier in his career and 7lb claimer Harry Davies rode a winner for the yard earlier in the week.

Has run well to be placed on all three AW starts (first two Polytrack); had the reopposing Pivoine 2l behind in fourth when second at Newcastle (12.5f) in November and the winner King of The South has boosted the form by winning twice since; gelded ahead of this first outing for ten weeks; Joe Fanning on yard's other runner but this one holds good form claims.
