Form & Verdict

Promise on his 2yo debut (5f, good to firm) and again on his reappearance at Doncaster (7f, good to firm) after over one year off; form has dipped twice since but no surprise to see him play a leading rule back sprinting and in maiden company.

J: Brandon Wilkie

T: K R Burke

Just one win to his name but he regularly ran to an RPR in the 80s through the winter and his penultimate start at Ripon (1m, soft) wasn't bad in the context of this race; disconcerting to see him dropped to this grade but no surprise were he to prove too classy.

Weighted to be involved on 7f Tapeta form in midwinter but he can lose ground at the start and, with no experience of Polytrack, he has something to prove against rivals who handle the surface well.

Clear promise in novice company but he has found a couple of deep York handicaps proving beyond him since; less on his plate today and more appealing than most.

Sole win in 16 starts came at Catterick (6f, good to firm; first-time cheekpieces) in July last year; 2lb lower than when beaten a nose at Newcastle (6f, Tapeta) a year ago, but well held the last twice which raises doubts despite the drop in grade.

Won at Newcastle (6f, Tapeta) in November and he's of interest on that form, but he hasn't been at the same level on his last two starts (6f, Tapeta); needs to raise his game now back down in trip on Polytrack debut.
