J: Aiden Brookes

T: Micky Hammond

Has generally struggled since his C&D win in December 2022 but he was runner-up at Thirsk on his penultimate run last season and he now returns to Tapeta off a very dangerous mark; yard is in decent form and he needs checking in market on return.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark on turf on first run over 1m6f when beating previous winner by 5l at Wetherby last week (good); seems just as effective at this trip and an obvious contender with her penalty providing this doesn't come too soon.

Has finished runner-up on last four starts, the latest at Haydock in May (1m4f, good; third won next time) when wearing cheekpieces for the first time; headgear retained and should go well again despite 3lb rise.

Won four times in amateur races for Brodie Hampson last year; sent off at huge prices and she's struggled in three runs this month; dropped 7lb as a result and Hollie Doyle takes over; interesting to see if there's any market interest now down in class.

Two wins over this trip at Catterick last season (good, good to soft); well behind Carlos Felix at Haydock on reappearance but should improve for the run.
