Form & Verdict

Gelded last June and had cheekpieces for his four starts since, all of which were six-runner handicaps and he won three; took the step up to 2m in his stride here in November when last seen and, although raised 5lb since, he should have more to offer as a stayer.

Form & Verdict

Fairly useful form at 1m2f-1m6f last season, including on this track, but it wasn't until three weeks ago that he broke his maiden tag in a 1m4f novice at Southwell (at 2-5); 2m is plausible and he's not dismissed.

Form & Verdict

Veteran; off nearly a year before last season but three 1m4f wins on Newcastle Tapeta this winter, including latest start which was another step back towards his old form; unraced on Polytrack; while he's 0-7 over 2m, all at Newcastle, he wasn't far away in two Northumberland Plates (2017 and 2018) and is not entirely ruled out with this step back up in trip.

Won five of six starts on this track, four of those wins over 2m and the only defeat in a steadily run race this January; wore cheekpieces for his two outings since, with a C&D win and creditable third off this career-high mark at Newcastle; needs to find a bit extra still but on the premises.

Form & Verdict

Four runs for Andre Fabre last April-June, culminating in a win at Dieppe (1m7f, very soft); well held in his first two starts on Polytrack for new yard this winter but second of eight from off the pace over C&D (second run in cheekpieces) ten days ago was encouraging and gives each-way claims.

Useful on Polytrack in 2021; Bahrain turf campaign this winter did not go well but he appeared to run very well for fifth of seven when 150-1 in Group 3 at Lingfield four weeks ago; that was over 1m2f, his November win was 1m and never having raced beyond 1m3f reinforces a major stamina doubt.

Useful form while failing to make a serious impact in his three AW races, all on Newcastle Tapeta including in November on latest outing; effective at 1m4f-2m1f and ran mostly with credit on Flat last year; needs to be at his best but has good record after a break.

Yet to win on AW but acts on Tapeta elsewhere; down weights and he didn't look a lost cause on third run for yard when third to Sea Stone at Newmarket last time (1m6f; regular visor left off, as today); stays 2m and this is easier than some of his more recent staying races.
