Form & Verdict

Placed over 6f at Southwell on his first two starts for this yard but he's finished ninth on Tapeta and Polytrack in his last three runs; mark is falling but he's still 3lb higher than for last win (September 2021) and has plenty to prove.

Hard to predict and his last win was in August 2022 but he made a bold bid when a close third over C&D last week; went down fighting from a tough draw in that race and has claims if he can back that up.

Form & Verdict

Got it together last year and in some style, winning four times over 6f and climbing the weights by 24lb; ended 2021 with two solid efforts at this track (5f/6f) and he should run well again back from a short break.

J: Rossa Ryan

Has not found his best form so far this year but he's dropping down the weights and Rossa Ryan is a notable booking for the stable (12-66 for a level-stake profit of +34.7); not ideally drawn though.

Form & Verdict

His losing run is up to 18 but he's very well treated on his old form and has shown some promising signs this year, including when close fifth at Southwell (6f) last Thursday; that was behind an odds-on rival and he has each-way claims if he can back that up.
