Unlucky not to go closer still on his comeback/handicap debut, having been gelded, but didn't build on it last time (turf debut); has a bit to prove after that.

raced freely, prominent, dropped to last but in touch with leaders after 1f, headway from over 3f out, pushed along when pressed leader 2f out, edged right from over 1f out, ridden when led 1f out, kept on and just did enough, all out (regarding the apparent improvement in form, trainer said gelding's previous run over this course and distance was his first run on turf and that the gelding had improved from the experience)

Form & Verdict
Below market expectations on his first two starts but hails from a family that tends to improve with age and this stiffer test should suit now handicapping at a sensible level; will be 3lb higher from Saturday and is high on the shortlist.

Stamina on the dam's side and better was expected on the step up to this trip on her handicap debut this month; she finished well held from the front, however, and needs to do much better for the switch to turf.

Form & Verdict
Trainer-jockey combination, who are 18-65 together, teamed up to win this last year; soft ground may have been behind a poor effort in first-time cheekpieces (retained) last time and this is less competitive.

Well held in three AW runs for Ed Walker last winter; again little was expected on his turf debut, having been gelded, 12 days ago but that gave something to build on for a yard in decent nick.
