Form & Verdict
Runner-up off 2lb higher at Worcester (2m, good to soft) in May 2019 on only start for Tom Lacey but was tailed off in Southwell seller when reappearing for new stable in June (built up big early lead but was easily reeled in); might settle better in refitted hood but looks risky.

Form & Verdict
Didn't progress from winning Flat debut in 2020 and hasn't shown much in three hurdles for new stable this summer; has more realistic chance to get competitive in this low-grade handicap but still makes only limited appeal from 2lb out of the weights.

Progressive 4yo who won four in a row (once over C&D) on good ground in May/June; found one too strong at Stratford (2m2f good) a week ago but goes again off the same mark here and remains very much of interest.
