Form & Verdict

Has a few quirks and he is currently 0-16 in turf runs on the Flat; does have more than enough ability to play a part in a race like this off his lowly mark though and he should appreciate a well-run race at this trip; could bounce back to form.

Looked to have a bit more in hand than the half-length winning margin when getting the better of Epeius at Windsor ten days ago, her first win at the tenth attempt; ran well over C&D in June and she has to enter calculations given she is unpenalised for the Windsor success.

Improving 3yo; ran well to take second over C&D last month and went one better with a comfortable 7f win here eight days later (made all); looked set to follow up when turning for home with a big lead at Wolverhampton ten days ago (7f) but she tired in the closing stages, eventually beaten 4l into second; unlikely this mark is beyond her and she remains of some interest back at 6f.
