Form & Verdict

All four wins have come over C&D; back on same mark as for last success in January but his form has gone the wrong way in four runs since including a remote fifth at Newcastle last time; tongue-tie is now added and he needs a major revival back at this track.

All five wins have been at this track (9.4f) but losing spell goes back to April 2022 and he's been quiet in his three runs this winter; mark continues to fall but he's 0-8 at this trip and others are more convincing.

Form & Verdict

Dual 7f AW winner (Fibresand/Tapeta) for Mark Johnston early last year and he went close at Chelmsford (1m2f) in final run for that trainer in October; only 1lb higher here and he's a big player if he can pick where he left off for new yard.

Won off 2lb higher at Newbury (1m amateurs) last July but he struggled in three of his final four runs last year, including at Chelmsford last time; still relatively lightly raced but he's untried on Tapeta and has plenty to prove after 158 days off.

Form & Verdict

Defied this mark over C&D on his stable debut in December; some creditable efforts since before a low-key run back on turf (1m) last time but regular blinkers were missing and he blew the start; headgear is now reapplied on this return to Tapeta and has claims if he can bounce back.
