Form & Verdict

Up against it trying to give weight to subsequent Hunt Cup winner at Nottingham in May (1m, good) but a stiff test at 1m should suit, judged on his persevering fourth in a competitive handicap at York last summer; yard has good record here, 9-33 in recent years, including this in 2013.

Ideal conditions not yet established but made impressive winning debut over 1m at Newbury (good) before racing freely with no cover and fading over 7f there since; should settle better from this draw and has potential; yard won three of the last five runnings.

Form & Verdict

Improved handicapper in the autumn and appreciated the uphill finish when winning at Newmarket in September (1m, good to firm); not yet on an upward curve in 2022 but he didn't act well at Epsom recently and this one looks sure to suit better; can be involved.

Two 7f handicap wins at Ascot in 2021 (good to firm/good) and returned better than ever when just losing out at Newbury on reappearance (1m) in May; was a long way from doing himself justice at Epsom since but the return to 1m on a more conventional track can suit.

Losing turf run goes back to June 2021 (1m, good to firm) but has flourished on AW since and although below best on return to turf at Goodwood in April he was ridden more prominently than usual; could see better from him under conditions that suit.

Looked promising for Richard Hannon in spring 2022 but is yet to make any further progress, and signed off for that stable with a down-the-field finish in June (1m, AW); still with same owners but has never contested a sprint and needs to have been refreshed by switch to new yard.

Often front-runs; Lingfield AW in February ended his losing run and he was 33-1 when well held there in a Class 2 latest outing (rare start with this visor, instead of usual blinkers); second at Epsom last August showed some turf ability remained, but he's 2lb higher today and not the percentage call.

He has generally been running well in recent months, winning a C&D handicap last month; another fair run behind Mclean House here 11 days ago but that run does suggest he's vulnerable in this field.

Form & Verdict

Comes into it on a good C&D run last June (good to soft; acts on good to firm) but seen only twice since and he ran no sort of race on his return at Epsom 19 days ago (has won on a downhill course so should have handled the track); guesswork involved as to what form he will be in today.
