Form & Verdict

Three-time winner for Gary Moore (including once on Polytrack) and 3lb lower than for her latest success at Epsom (1m2f, good to soft) a year ago; just fair efforts in both starts since returning in May and makes her debut for another new yard (same owners); may find a few too strong.

Made a winning debut for this yard at Southwell (1m4f, AW), coming from last to first; that was 96 days ago but she's a dual turf winner on softish ground and there's nothing wrong with her mark; eyeshield a first.

Form & Verdict

Consistent sort whose two wins since arriving in Britain have been gained over 1m2f on the Lingfield Polytrack, the latest in the first-time visor last month; does stay this far and ran well in his only previous start on Tapeta, so he's respected after his second of 11 at Bath (1m2f, good) a fortnight ago.

Sole win came at Kempton (1m, Polytrack) last November when trained by Brian O'Rourke; now 4lb lower than when going down narrowly over C&D in January; recent efforts leave something to be desired, though, including on stable debut/first start since wind surgery at Bath (11.6f, good) three weeks ago.

Made it 2-36 when winning comfortably with first-time cheekpieces (now removed) added to the hood over C&D in February, but was found to be lame on his left-fore when well beaten at Lingfield the following month; not seen since, but he has a good record fresh and with the conditions no problem he has to be high on the list.

Well held on his Wolverhampton debut (9.5f, Tapeta) last December despite market support, but a hint of ability in two starts over 6f/7.6f on turf since returning in April; upped in trip in a new headgear combination for this handicap debut, but his pedigree suggests he should stay; market may be informative.
