Form & Verdict

Caused 66-1 upset on first start for this team in November but safely enough held in trio of outings since without being disgraced, albeit could have had things unfold a little more smoothly on a couple of occasions; possibly vulnerable to improver but should run his race again.

Form & Verdict

Made it 14th time lucky here nine days ago when scoring over this trip in handicap for horses who hadn't been placed on their last start; that continued a largely progressive sequence of runs over the winter here but has been hit with 7lb rise; likes to race close enough to pace so low draw should be a help; obvious chance.

Of serious interest on her summer form but her progress has stalled more recently; not beaten far in a Newcastle novice 17 days ago (first-time visor, retained) but that was a strange race and the form is questionable; wide draw back in a handicap and there are risks attached.
