Form & Verdict

Only had four starts since his debut in August 2019 and was returning from another lengthy absence when second of six in a first-time hood (retained) on stable/handicap debut at Wolverhampton 13 days ago; needs to settle better than in his last two starts, but respected if he does and he still has untapped potential.

Won a couple of handicaps in the first half of 2022 when trained by Roger Varian and he is now 8lb lower than for the second of them; three heavy defeats for this yard after a year off though and the addition of blinkers isn't enough to tempt.

Record since joining this stable reads 21421 including two wins around here, the latest over C&D seven days ago when showing that he doesn't have to lead; 6lb higher including his penalty, but has won off similar marks in the past and looks a major player again.

Three-time winner at Lingfield (1m, Polytrack), but despite being sent off at 100-1 he ran a big race to finish third of 11 over C&D seven days ago, just over a length behind Love Your Work; still 5lb below his last winning mark, but no better off with his old rival and it remains to be seen if he can back up that recent effort.

Made it 3-7 under Erika Parkinson (and since the hood was fitted) when successful at Chelmsford (1m, Polytrack) last month, taking her record there to 121; up 5lb, but she has run well on this surface and clearly comes into this in good heart; shortlisted.

Rattled off a four-timer on the AW during the winter with her last two successes coming over C&D, but there appeared to be no excuses when third of six from this mark back here last time (Takeonefortheteam second); may have been freshened up by a 50-day break, but likely she needs to improve again to resume winning ways.

In tremendous form at this venue at the start of the year, winning four on the bounce over 7f/1m; couldn't complete the five-timer when sixth off 11 here five days ago, but he met plenty of traffic problems in the straight and would have gone closer otherwise; hard to rule out.
