Form & Verdict
Raced very lazily and was tailed off when hiked up to 1m6f for recent seasonal/handicap debut; it takes a leap of faith to support him after that but he sports blinkers today and, given his trainer's usual prowess with 3yo handicappers, it would be reckless to write him off at this stage.

Stayed on for third (just behind Alkhattaaf) off today's much reduced mark at Bath (1m5f, good) this month but remains a maiden after 17 starts and has essentially become disappointing; others preferred.

Form & Verdict
Has better strike-rate on AW but ran quite well when fourth from out of the weights in Class 4 C&D contest (good to firm) in May, and last month's handicap hurdle debut was perfectly respectable; probably won't be far away.

Dual-purpose 6yo; won off this mark at Chepstow (2m, good) in August 2020 but that is his only win from 20 starts and he's generally struggled under both codes in last five runs; was tailed off over C&D 19 days ago and has plenty to prove with tongue-tie now tried.

Form & Verdict
Hasn't progressed since last September's winning debut but wasn't beaten far when fifth of seven in first-time blinkers here (1m4f, good) in May and didn't run badly when fourth of 11 at Newbury (1m4f, good to soft) last time, albeit he was over 13l behind the winner; probably on a good mark now and could have a say if this new trip suits.
