Form & Verdict
Very useful on his day but far from consistent; as good as ever when narrowly denied in the Scottish Stewards' Cup at Hamilton (6f, good to firm) 15 days ago but not in the same form at Newmarket last weekend; fine at 7f and certainly no shock were he to bounce straight back to his best for a stable that has won this three times since 2015.

Form & Verdict
Nothing wrong with his close second off this mark at Leicester (6f) last month but no impact in two admittedly ultra-competitive 6f handicaps at York (good) and Newmarket (good to firm) since; below best on previous attempt over 7f (here), though it was his reappearance; all his best RPRs have come when encountering going softer than good so for that reason he's passed over.

Won a pair of AW novices at Kempton (7f) at the end of 2021 and made a promising return to action, having been gelded, when head second to the reopposing Zero Carbon at Haydock (7f; handicap debut) four weeks ago; entitled to come on for that first outing in nearly seven months and needs considering; the ground has been soft on his two turf outings.

Form & Verdict
Prominent racer who is going the right way, notably when finding a good chunk of improvement to go very close on his handicap debut at Newmarket's July meeting (1m, good to firm; Laasudood behind) three weeks ago; clearly fine at 1m but shapes as if he'll prove at least as effective back at 7f and his 5lb rise for Newmarket is offset by Benoit De La Sayette's claim.

Only scrambled home when a short-priced favourite on his stable debut at Newmarket (1m, good to firm) a fortnight ago, but it was a tactical affair and he deserves credit for digging deep, particularly as he got loose beforehand; nudged up just 2lb; prominent showing likely under Ryan Moore.

Form & Verdict
Had looked progressive until a blip at Newmarket's July meeting three weeks ago, which connections put down to the fast ground, although it was officially good to firm when he won comfortably at Doncaster (1m) previously; either way, he didn't look happy from some way out at Newmarket so something presumably wasn't quite right and he could still be a handicapper on the up.

Has some solid course form and it finally all came together for him with an easy win in Epsom Class 4 (7f, good to firm) one month ago, suited by getting a good pace to aim at; plenty of possible competition for the lead here so he could get a similar scenario, but he is 9lb higher in a much better race now; yard won this last year.
