J: Hollie Doyle

T: Heather Main

Handy sort whose last five starts have been over 8.6f here, winning twice; not at his best in his last two outings, but he may appreciate going back up in trip having scored over course and distance off 1lb higher a year ago; high on the list.

7yo who won twice over 9.4f at this track early in 2021; several creditable efforts this year but he's had some ups and downs and couldn't make a serious impact here last time; losing run is now up to 16 and others are more persuasive; first-time blinkers.

Form & Verdict

On much-reduced mark but sole win was at Newcastle (7f) in October 2020 and he's not made an impact over hurdles and on the Flat for this yard; ran into some trouble here (7f) in February but he needs to a major revival back up in trip after a break.

Fair fifth back on turf at Pontefract last time and that was after a really good spell on Tapeta since January, including two wins and four seconds; has wide draw back on AW but he should get a good pace to aim at and still looks feasibly treated on his C&D win last month; dangerous.

Form & Verdict

Justified favouritism in first-time visor on stable debut over C&D last month and he backed that up with a near miss under another positive ride at Salisbury (7f) 18 days ago; up another 4lb but this triple course winner remains feasibly treated and he's a big player again.
