Form & Verdict
Strong in the market and much improved for a switch to handicap company over a longer trip when making a successful reappearance at Brighton (1m2f, good to firm) eight days ago; turned out under a 6lb penalty (new mark due to be 3lb higher); surely more to come from him.

Went down by only a neck in 1m2f Ayr handicap recently; this ten-race maiden should find a race at some point but she comes up against two well-treated sorts here.

Form & Verdict
Looked unlucky over the extended 1m at Beverley on penultimate start and more than confirmed that promise when shooting 6l clear over 1m2f there (good to firm) last Tuesday; 4lb well-in compared to his future mark under a 6lb penalty; taken to follow up.

Some promise when third in AW maiden last November but not in the same form in two comeback outings in the spring (including a turf handicap) and also disappointed on his Hexham hurdle debut in June (subsequently had wind surgery); visored first time back on the Flat; plenty to prove.
