Form & Verdict

He was handed a very lowly mark compared to hurdles form; first attempt to capitalise was disappointing (Redcar 1m6f, good to firm) but he then knuckled down to assert late on at Catterick (1m4f, soft) three days ago; has 5lb penalty but should have more to give in this sphere; shortlisted.

Form & Verdict

Strike-rate is just 2-30 but his latest win was last month and he was a good second one week later; his creditable runs (from four attempts) this season were his three visits to Catterick; took too long to find his stride last time and gave himself a great deal to do, but he's firmly in the mix.

Form & Verdict

Most of his form over 1m4f/1m6f on fast ground this season would see him thereabouts, but his 0-26 scoreline is off-putting; has had the odd run (below form) in cheekpieces and now tries blinkers.

Sometimes front-runner; sole win (19 starts) was a by a nose in 1m maiden handicap at Redcar in June 2021; unraced beyond 1m2f and although he's run creditably over that trip on two of his last three starts, there are stamina doubts.
