Form & Verdict

4yo who turned things around after wind surgery when recording his breakthrough win (tenth attempt) in a classified event at Southwell (1m, AW) on his return last week; has to concede weight all round on this switch to Polytrack but that was a dominant display under Erika Parkinson last time and he's a big player again.

Prominent racer with two AW wins to his name this year; not at his best at Chelmsford when last seen eight weeks ago but he's the pick of today's weights and ran well over C&D on his one run at Catterick.

Form & Verdict

Made a winning start for this yard over 7f here in February; several good runs in defeat since but his form has dropped off on Polytrack (1m) in last two outings; probably did too much too soon at Chelmsford last time but he has a tough draw here and others are preferred.

Recorded his second win when landing a C&D handicap in September but he's not hit the same level since and was tailed off at Lingfield in December; that run probably came too soon but he's not easy to predict and is still 4lb higher than for last win; comes with risks attached on return.

Form & Verdict

His form is a bit up and down but he's won twice at Kempton (7f, Polytrack) this year and was a creditable third over 1m at Brighton (classified event) on his penultimate run; has claims on his best form this year and he's still unexposed at this trip.

Inconsistent type with a record of 1-23 but he went close in a C&D handicap on his penultimate run and things didn't really go his way here last time; looks interesting if he can recapture that penultimate form and his win came at this track.
