Form & Verdict

Sole win in 14 starts under both codes came here (1m4f) at the end of 2020 and having been gelded, he hasn't been beaten far in either start since returned to the AW (1m4f/1m5f) in January; has stamina to prove, but a contender if he stays.

No impact in his four Flat turf races (2020); he did show some ability in two of four hurdle starts last year but it's in AW handicap campaign this year (last three starts over 2m) that he has made his mark; player if that form is transferred to turf.

Improved for the fitting of blinkers when off the mark at Kempton (2m, Polytrack) early last month (first two clear), but had something of a wide trip when second of nine here (1m6f) 16 days ago; could well bounce back on this return to a stiffer test.

Form & Verdict

Bumper winner and four times successful over hurdles; only seen twice since last spring, but he went close at Newcastle (2m, Tapeta) in October and ran well to finish fourth of eight here (1m4f) last month when the trip looked inadequate; still lightly raced on the Flat and should appreciate the return to a stiffer test.

Form & Verdict

Better known as a hurdler, but did well over 2m on the Newcastle Tapeta late in 2020 including a win off 5lb lower; pulled up over hurdles on his return from ten months off four weeks ago and although he may have needed it, he will need to bounce back quickly.

Four wins in 2019, but nothing since; went mighty close over C&D in September; they weren't going hard enough for him at Wolverhampton last time and big mid-race move didn't entirely pay off (finished just behind Hashtagmetoo); others stronger for the win.
