Form & Verdict

Off the mark over 7f here last month, making all to see off 13 rivals in good style; better form in defeat last time when finding only a progressive sort too strong; well beaten in previous 1m attempts but both were on soft; still looks on a good mark and more appealing than many.

Winning stable debut over C&D in late 2020; had little racing since but ran a cracker over inadequate 5f on return in December; reared leaving the stalls (not for the first time) and was poorly positioned when fifth over 7f here last month; very dangerous if getting it right at the start.

Probably wasn't suited by dropping back in trip at Windsor last time (1m2f, heavy) after winning in a determined manner there (1m4f, soft) a week prior; no obvious issue with AW, even though his better synthetics efforts have come elsewhere at Kempton and Chelmsford; dangerous to dismiss.

Won a Yarmouth nursery at two (7f, soft); the application of a tongue-tie saw him run well over C&D last month and perhaps unsuited by a tactical small-field event 11 days ago; cheekpieces given a go now dropped into a Class 6.
