Went close off 3lb higher at Southwell (1m, Tapeta) in February but his form has nosedived in two subsequent runs; had an excuse in the mud at Thirsk last time but he's not easy to predict and is now 0-25 since his last win in 2022; down the list.

Both turf wins at about 7f on good to firm but he isn't inconvenienced by soft ground; much lower in the weights than 12 months ago and there were signs on his latest 1m start, at Southwell in February, that he could be about to exploit his current mark.

Losing run up to 23 though he came within half a length of ending the drought at Southwell (1m, Tapeta) last time; races off the same mark and all three wins have come at around 7f, but he may prefer the extra furlong now.

Form & Verdict

Stepped up on previous two efforts when taking the initiative early on return to 7f at Carlisle last month (soft) and never looked likely to relinquish his lead; has to handle a very different track and conditions here (unraced on quicker than good to soft) but is likely to improve again.

Fair fifth when green on debut at Wolverhampton (7f, AW) last November and again showed promise when third of six at Hamilton (1m, good to soft) two weeks ago, fading having been headstrong; this drop back in trip looks the right move for the time being and he's a key player.

Form & Verdict

Often leads so could have been better drawn but he ran well over 7f here as 2yo and is unbeaten round the bends of Wolverhampton; no real problem with the return to this trip and has a big run in him.

Made all at Beverley in May; creditable third at Sandown (1m, good) four weeks ago, having been suited by the return to front-running tactics; holds place claims off unaltered mark.

Form & Verdict

Front-running winner of 7f Redcar novice in April (good to firm); the stiff test at the trip found him out at Sandown recently but it was still a good effort and he should make a go of it from the rail draw.

Creditable debut here as 2yo and had some useful sprint form later, winning on soft at Goodwood; ran well for a long way in first 7f run on AW recently but has to prove this extra distance is helpful.

All runs at 7f; two good AW runs at the start of the year and had a tough task on turf debut at Doncaster 20 days ago (good; (first-time tongue-tie, retained) with the form having been handsomely advertised since; this is more his level but he has the outside draw to negotiate.

Is 0-8 but had a wide trip when down the field in a 7f handicap at Kempton three weeks ago; was a close third of five in a 6f maiden at Chelmsford (6f, Polytrack) previously; has run well on Tapeta in the past and could be involved; another change of headgear today.
