Form & Verdict

Absent since a disappointing effort at Thirsk eight weeks ago when not beaten entirely by the 7f trip; made a promising debut at Salisbury (6f, good to firm; close third) in May and has leading claims on that form; dam's side suggests he'll be effective at 5f.

Runner-up in three of his last five starts but he was well below form at Southwell (7f, Tapeta) two weeks ago; ran into some trouble in that race but he's now 1-13 and others are more persuasive.

Form & Verdict

Form dipped when unplaced favourite in 5f AW handicap ten days ago but he's normally consistent and could well bounce back; however, record of 0-22 sounds a note of caution.

Off the mark at the 41st attempt when landing a Bath maiden (5.7f) in August but he's been well held in five runs since including on Tapeta in last three starts; continues to drop back down the weights but he has questions to answer for new yard; blinkers removed.

Modest second in weak maiden at Brighton (5.3f, good to firm) on debut, eventually running out of puff having gone off like a scalded cat in a clear lead for much of the way; may improve for the experience but ideally needs to settle down and use his energy more efficiently.

Outran his 150-1 odds in Leicester maiden (6f, good to soft) last month, improving markedly on his two AW efforts; bred to do better still, as he's the first foal of a four-time winner for his connections; likely to cope with this drop in distance; possibilities.

Sprung a shock in a four-runner novice on AW in January 2023; three placed efforts in turf handicaps last May; struggled since but he wasn't beaten far at Brighton last time and he's handicapped to win now; an easier 6f is perhaps ideal though.
