Showed promise in four 2yo runs and he shaped well when a never-nearer sixth over C&D (soft; 13-2) on his reappearance in a race dominated by prominent racers; interesting candidate off the same mark.

Form & Verdict

Sole win came in 2019 and he's 0-9 for current stable, but his three runs at 1m this year have been respectable at least, fourth of ten at Windsor on latest; handles good to soft ground and has each-way claims.

Better than ever when winning at Leicester (1m, good to soft) last week in decisive fashion, making all under William Carver; conditions likely to be similar here and he's a leading contender under a 5lb penalty.

Form & Verdict

Dual 7f scorer at Epsom (good/good to soft) last summer and he looked as good as ever when winning over the same trip at Brighton (good) two weeks ago; 3lb rise is fair but he has to prove his stamina for today's longer trip.

Consistent at 6f-7.3f as a 2yo, and he improved when beaten 1l at Wolverhampton (7f, AW) three weeks ago, keeping on; big player if repeating that over this longer trip, although his stamina is not guaranteed and he was disappointing on his only encounter with good to soft ground.
