Form & Verdict

Didn't look to see out 1m2f a couple of times before a solid third, again from the front, off this mark last time; that's been well advertised since and she's shortlisted under William Buick (15-76 for the yard).

Stamina on the dam's side and she's been running over middle-distances since switched to turf; didn't see it out in cheekpieces (removed here) last time and now takes a big drop in trip.

Bumped into one on his handicap debut (AW) but hasn't built on it since; didn't see out 1m2f last time, however, and it's too soon to write him off on this first run since being gelded.

Won on hurdling debut at Stratford (2m, good) last August but he's struggled in handicap hurdles in his last three runs, including when pulled up at Worcester last month; on workable mark back on the Flat but he's 0-9 in this sphere and others are more persuasive.

185,000gns yearling who was among the favourites when shaping nicely on his soft-ground debut last autumn; hasn't built on that but is worth monitoring in the market now handicapping at a lowly level in first-time headgear.

Became disappointing on the Flat last year; suggested he might be able to win over hurdles when dead-heat third on handicap debut at Market Rasen (2m, good to soft) in February but next run was a backward step; returns from five-month break; others have more persuasive profiles.
