Form & Verdict
Has proved consistent since last summer and ran another good race from the front when beaten a nose and a head into third of five at Ayr (1m, good) 12 days ago; still 7lb higher than when successful over C&D (soft) last September, though, so may find one or two too strong again.

Form & Verdict
Front-runner who remains 4lb lower than when successful over C&D (soft) last September, but she may have gone off a bit too quick when third of eight in a first-time visor (retained) at Pontefract last time; should go well if getting her own way in front and settling better.

Didn't appear to have an issue with the step up in trip when third of five over C&D (good to firm) last time, but that took his record to 0-13 and others have more to recommend them.

Sole win in 17 starts came when sent off 1-8 for a Kempton novice (1m4f, AW) for Andrew Balding last October; made an encouraging debut for this yard when second of seven here (1m1f, good) last month, but not built on it in three starts since; needs to turn things around.

Rattled off a quick hat-trick on varying ground over 1m2f at Ayr, but returned lame when bidding for the four-timer back there last time; has won three times here including twice over this trip, so a likely player if putting that latest experience behind him; stable won this in 2020.
