He has dropped to a handy mark after a barren 12 months and his last run in Class 4 company saw him win a 6f handicap at Catterick last July (good to soft); would be more appealing over another furlong though.

Did well as a 2yo, winning three of her first six starts (a maiden and two conditions events) and finishing fourth of 13 in a Listed contest at Ayr in September; a couple of promising efforts this year and she is edging down the weights; capable of a big run.

Made a winning seasonal return in a 7f handicap at Wetherby in April; generally run to form since but he's got a modest strike-rate for one of his ability and this sharp 5f might prove an inadequate test.

Two novice wins as a 2yo and he ran out the ready winner of a 5f handicap at last season's Chester May meeting; more miss than hit since then but he's tumbling down the weights and he's the type to pop up soon; seems to handle most ground.
