Form & Verdict

Creditable fourth of 18 in the Golden Mile at Glorious Goodwood last July and an each-way case can be made on that form, now 2lb lower; however, he was below par on his final two runs for William Haggas and needs to be at the very top of his game on this stable debut (remains in same ownership).

Won this in 2022 (good to soft) on his first run of the year and landed the Golden Mile at Goodwood (1m, soft) last August on last season's belated return to action (one of just two runs last season); his reappearance record very much catches the eye and he's one to consider on today's 2024 comeback.

Form & Verdict

Has improved on AW in recent months and has a considerably lower mark to work with now back on turf; however, it's doubtful he'll take advantage as his record on grass is nothing like so good (0-10).

Infrequent winner in recent times but he's well handicapped and returned to form with a close third in a higher grade at Kempton (1m); could do with a strong pace to target but he's one for the shortlist.

Twice finished placed here last season and he may have needed his reappearance run a fortnight ago; however; this 9yo was soundly beaten in mid-division in this race last year and others are more compelling.

Third in the Group 1 Queen Anne in June 2020 and, while he hasn't hit the same heights since, he won a handicap off today's mark at Ayr last July and was a Listed runner-up at Meydan in January; however, this prominent-racer looks to be up against it today tackling some progressive rivals.

Ran a cracker from the front at York in May (extended 1m2f) and he turns up here off a 7lb lower mark after some struggles in classy company; ran well in one start at this track and a more positive showing is expected in this weaker race.

Kicked off last year's campaign with three 7f wins and got back on track in first-time cheekpieces (retained today) when third in the competitive Cambridgeshire over 1m1f at Newmarket last time out in September; this 5yo remains lightly raced and could have more to offer for his top trainer.

Very progressive over 7f until a disappointing run in the Bunbury Cup, then step up to 1m made no difference at York; hard to suggest he's crying out for 1m1f (pedigree largely backs that up); headgear enlisted.
