Form & Verdict

Scored over today's trip on soft ground as a 2yo and ran well in defeat on subsequent nursery/AW debut; however, he failed to build upon encouraging seasonal debut when only sixth at Haydock in May and has been off for over ten weeks since.

Has some fairly useful form on his CV but was largely disappointing for Nikki Evans last summer and has finished well down the field on both starts for new stable this year (7f/1m); revival needed.

Well handicapped on best form; started joint-favourite but ran dismally at Wolverhampton (7f; wore cheekpieces) last month on stable/seasonal debut; chance partly depends on whether the switch to blinkers has a better effect.

Form & Verdict

Runner-up twice over 6f for new stable this season and might have gone close over that trip at Windsor (first-time cheekpieces) last month had he not been denied a clear run 100 yards out; remains on a workable mark but is yet to convince stamina-wise over 7f.

Yet to make the progress that might have been expected after easy 7f Wolverhampton novice win on seasonal debut in April but all three handicap runs were perfectly respectable and she probably won't be far away; usual hood is left off today.

Last season she won over 7f on the AW and at 6f on turf; her reappearance in a Nottingham handicap was up there with her best form but has struggled at Listed level since then; left the Crisfords for 42,000gns; looks up against it in the reapplied hood (usual tongue-tie missing).

7f (AW) and 6f (good to firm) wins at three and posted a career best on her reappearance when second in a 0-95 Nottingham handicap (6f, good to firm) in June; may be open to further improvement but has that to prove after being down the field in this grade at Chelmsford (7f, AW) six weeks ago.

Won handicap debut over 6f on Tapeta in January and gave very good account when midfield at Royal Ascot (5f, good to firm) in June, after a break; ran poorly when tried in cheekpieces (now removed) a fortnight ago, though, and has stamina to prove on this first attempt at 7f.
