Form & Verdict

All six wins have come at Kempton (1m, AW) and he is 0-6 on grass, but was by no means disgraced when third of seven off his lower turf mark over C&D (good) last month; place claims again if able to repeat that.

Last of his seven wins (40 races) was in July 2022; wore cheekpieces on last three outings; has almost a career-low mark and wasn't far away on three of his last four starts, but this race looks a bit too competitive.

Seven race maiden who showed a bit more when fourth of ten from 4lb higher over C&D (good) last month (runner-up has won since), but didn't build on it when sent off favourite at Kempton (1m, AW) last time (ran into trouble); can't be dismissed entirely.

0-18 overall and, after 265 days off, never dangerous in his two starts last month; several minor honours last year and one was a C&D second, which would make him look well handicapped but he's not the percentage call.

Lightly raced 4yo whose sole success came at Wolverhampton (6f, AW) as a 2yo and he is 0-7 on turf, but has finished runner-up three times including when beaten just over a length into second of ten at Windsor (1m, good to firm) last month; 1lb higher but still frame material if repeating that effort.

A couple of lesser efforts on slow turf since returned to 6f in July but otherwise consistent at this trip and followed a Wolverhampton win with a C&D second to a reviver; no standout at the weights now back up 2lb but still likely to have a say.

Snapped an 18-race losing run when beating a subsequent winner by a neck at Beverley (7f, good to firm) 11 days ago; 1lb rise still leaves him well treated, but four previous efforts over this far leave plenty to be desired.

Happiest challenging late off a strong pace and he won three times last year, including off a 1lb higher mark at Newcastle in November; likely this will be run to suit and he's one for the shortlist.

Back off the same mark as when successful at Carlisle (1m, good) just under a year ago and drops in class, but he needs to improve on his four efforts since returning in April if he is to take advantage.

Newcastle maiden winner (7f, AW) last September and best effort since when second of six in a handicap on the Rowley Mile (1m, good to firm) in May; twice held with blinkers added since, but the return to 7f didn't look in her favour when third of six at Chepstow (good) this month; may do better back at this trip.
