Form & Verdict

5f soft-ground win on handicap debut in summer 2020 but has not had much racing since and form has been patchy; cheekpieces replaced by first-time blinkers but plenty to prove on first run since November.

Drops back in class having faced a stiff task in Listed grade on seasonal debut; has bits of 6f form but his wins have come over shorter and off lower marks; not the percentage call.

Looked a sprinter going places last spring but he failed to fire at Newmarket and Newcastle last summer; off for 336 days (had a wind op in March); should have more races in him but he's flying high on his return and his rider can't use his claim either.

Turf winner who returned to something like best when scoring over C&D last time; up in weights and in grade so will need to fare better if he is to follow up.

Yet to run a bad race over this C&D and his recent fourth came in a much deeper race than this; shouldn't be much between him and Twilight Madness on their penultimate run; more appealing than most.

His last win was 13 months ago but he's a Tapeta specialist who has run several good races this year including a near miss over C&D four runs back; should get a decent tow into this race and has possibilities if he gets the breaks.

Losing run up to 22, but has been thereabouts lately as when third of 12 at Wolverhampton (6f, Tapeta) five days ago, looking unlucky not to go closer; however, all 13 wins (including seven here) have come over 5f/6f and not difficult to oppose him over this trip.

In good form this winter but all wins and best form has been over 6f; however, has run respectably over 5f and should give a good account on first run at this trip since 2020.

All three wins on Tapeta, the latest over 5f here a year ago; now 6lb lower, but he has finished out of the frame in all eight starts since that success so doubts over whether he can take advantage.

Posted an effort that just about matched pick of turf form when scoring over C&D last time; 5lb penalty to carry but reproduction of that effort should ensure he goes close.

Most wins have come over 5f and still does the majority of his racing at that trip, but he's fine with 6f; has come more than a stone down the weights in the past year and been expensive to follow, so others appeal more; returns from three months off.

All five wins have been over this C&D and, although below best on first run on Southwell's Tapeta surface last time, he should be suited by the return to this venue; interesting runner.
