Form & Verdict

Close second in 17-runner Worcester handicap on last month's stable debut and went one better over C&D (good) three weeks later; latest 4lb rise doesn't look excessive, and he could easily have more to offer for Laura Morgan.

Form & Verdict

Dual C&D winner for Iain Jardine last year, latterly off mark 12lb higher than today's; generally very disappointing for current yard since December but there were some encouraging signs at Worcester last month (first-time blinkers), and the return to this track is an obvious plus; visor refitted.

Needs to bounce back from a disappointing performance three weeks ago but was in good form over 3m beforehand, and is now 1lb lower than when second here in July; a possible if combination of drop back in trip and addition of cheekpieces aids his cause.
