Form & Verdict

She is a 27-race maiden but she regularly runs with great credit, as when picked off late over C&D last week; more likely to give her running than most and it could just be her day.

Doubled her tally with emphatic success at Yarmouth (1m6f, good to firm) last month and has finished third twice since, more recently behind Dirham Emirati and Urban Forest over 1m5f here a fortnight ago; holds no secrets from the handicapper but probably won't be far away.

Promise in his 3yo campaign; strong favourite for both starts in 2022 (1m6f, good or quicker) but he hasn't been able to muster a strong finish; edging down the weights but perhaps slower ground would be ideal.

Won five-runner race at Bath (2m1f) in June under Olivia Tubb; acts on soft (ran once on heavy) but she was beaten 27l on it when runner-up at Ffos Las in August; both subsequent runs also fail to persuade.

Off the mark at the 14th attempt when seeing off three rivals in a 1m6f handicap at Yarmouth last month (soft); couldn't land a blow back at that track a fortnight ago and he's another 2lb higher today; others preferred for the win.

Well handicapped on his best form and he returned from a lengthy absence with a fair fourth of 11 at Southwell (1m6f) last month; could be dangerous if he can build on that but a strike-rate of 1-29 is off-putting.

It has been a slow start to his British career but he is tumbling down the weights and his last two runs haven't been without hope; first run over this trip for current stable and he shouldn't be dismissed.

Held up and sometimes slowly away, as on latest start; five AW wins (one over this far) and registered his first turf success at Doncaster (1m2f, soft) last month, going away at the finish; easily his best other turf start was two weeks ago when creditable, staying-on fourth at Bath (1m2f, heavy); 1m4f away from testing ground would give him more to prove but he's highly respected as a strikingly in-form candidate.

1m4f and 1m6f AW wins when trainer by Ivan Furtado; good start over hurdles for current stable but form regressed in that sphere; not on a bad mark if the return to the Flat piques his interest.
