Form & Verdict
Has twice performed below par since going close off 3lb higher at Doncaster in April (7f, good to firm); dropping back to 6f was perhaps not ideal last time but he's now 0-17 in handicaps.

All the better for blinkers with 7f handicap wins at Kempton and Haydock since March; not great the last twice but he remains on a fair mark and could threaten again.

After a couple of lack-lustre runs she was perked up by this new headgear combination when going down fighting at Chepstow (6f, good); every bit as effective over 7f so should be bang there off just 1lb higher.

Form & Verdict
Both wins have come at Kempton (7f/6f, AW) for a previous yard; well below par in two runs for this stable following a long absence but headgear returns (cheekpieces a first) and that might trigger something, as blinkers and a visor have worked for him in the past.

Two wins on the Kempton Polytrack (6f/7f) for James Ferguson in 2020, but dropped away after making much of the running on his stable debut back there (7f) this month following a 426-day absence; likely the run was needed, but he still has something to prove and the headgear he wore for both victories is still missing.
