Form & Verdict

Placed four times on AW since last autumn but ought to have been well suited by the good to soft ground when safely held on turf at Windsor (6f) this month and career strike-rate now stands at 0-25.

Form & Verdict

Seemingly aided by first-time cheekpieces when making all for clearcut win off reduced mark at Bath (5.7f, good to soft) on Sunday; still looks well handicapped under 5lb penalty here and could take some catching if the headgear continues to have a positive effect.

Getting long in the tooth now but won over C&D (good to firm) last season and returns here after two pretty good AW runs at Lingfield this spring; can make his presence felt.

Placed on only one of six starts during fairly light campaign last season and finished last of seven when back in action at Bath on Sunday; well handicapped now but has a lot more to prove than some.

Made his debut in September 2019, but has only had seven starts with his career marked by some lengthy absences; not disgraced on his return from another year off when fifth of eight (behind a couple of these) at Chepstow (5f, good to firm) 13 days ago, but clearly a risky proposition at present.

Excellent servant to stable over the years (15 wins) but has regressed and become very inconsistent; makes stable debut from a workable mark and has gone well when fresh before but seems better suited by 6f now.

Has 15 wins on his CV but last success was 13 months ago and he's generally struggled since then; now 5lb lower than for last win but was tailed off at Salisbury last time and he needs to turn things around back at this trip; change of headgear.
