Form & Verdict

Struggled in three novice races in May-July (1m-1m2f) but, following a gelding operation and with a tongue-tie fitted, displayed huge improvement to win by over 5l over C&D on handicap debut five days ago; should be hard to beat under 6lb penalty.

Completed a Class 6 hat-trick (1m4f/1m6f, AW) last August; back to form in Class 5 race at Southwell (1m6f) last week, finishing a close second; likely to stay this new trip round here; respected back down in grade.

Rattled off a ten-day hat-trick last August (1m6f, Polytrack twice and 1m4f, Tapeta); progress has stalled more recently and he'll need to come on for his recent return to action at Newcastle.

Fended off subsequent winner Shut Up And Dance to win at Ffos Las (1m4f good) in first-time blinkers last month and was clear second at Southwell (1m4f, AW) 16 days ago; went up another 3lb for that and not yet proven over this far but probably won't be far away.

12-race maiden who made the frame a couple of times over 1m4f/1m6f on Polytrack in the summer, shaping as though a greater test of stamina would suit; visor replaces cheekpieces and has an each-way squeak.

Form & Verdict

Best of three runs for new stable this summer when keeping-on fourth at Catterick (1m4f, soft; first-time tongue-tie) 12 days ago; needs another step forward here but the return to Polytrack will suit and he looks well worth a go over 1m6f; sports first-time cheekpieces.

Became disappointing on the Flat last year; suggested he might be able to win over hurdles when dead-heat third on handicap debut at Market Rasen (2m, good to soft) in February but next run was a backward step; returns from five-month break; others have more persuasive profiles.

Three wins this season, the first two on turf (1m2f/11.4f) and the latest on Tapeta (1m6f); below form after racing too freely on Polytrack last time and seems likely to face competition for the early lead from Ancient Capital here, but further progress remains possible.

Quite encouraging seasonal/handicap debut when fifth at Yarmouth (11.5f, good) in May and remains unexposed but ran poorly when upped to 2m on Polytrack recently and it's hard to know what to expect from her here.
