Form & Verdict

Finished a fair fourth of 13 on stable/handicap debut at Haydock (1m2f, good to soft) in June, but well held in a first-time hood (retained) over 1m4f here a fortnight later; down in grade, but not bred to improve for this sort of trip and passed over.

Likeable front-runner with a consistent record; made all over C&D (heavy) just before Christmas and ran close to his best despite late mistakes when fourth in the well-contested Morebattle at Kelso four weeks ago; should be in the thick of things once more.

Made all in small field at Haydock (1m7f, heavy) in December and bounced back from a blip here when second of seven at Catterick (1m7f, heavy) three weeks ago; versatile ground-wise; however, he's going back up in grade today and that may find him out.

Form & Verdict

Out of the frame in all six starts, but looked a stayer when rallying to finish fifth of 11 in a first-time visor (retained) at Southwell (1m4f, Tapeta) on Sunday; plenty of stamina on dam's side of pedigree and has run creditably here before; a player.

Won two staying handicaps on the Flat in Britain in the spring, both on quick ground; ordinary form in maiden hurdles since joining this stable; soft probably not ideal.

Tailed off in all four starts on turf including on handicap debut after ten months off at Pontefract (1m4f, good to firm) six days ago; makes AW debut in first-time cheekpieces, but can't be recommended.

Form & Verdict

Well beaten in his first four starts but seemed to improve for the fitting of cheekpieces (retained) and being given a positive ride when third of nine at Kempton (1m4f, Polytrack) nine days ago; half-brother to a 2m winner and respected if able to transfer the improvement back to Tapeta.

Form & Verdict

In the frame a couple of times, more recently when fourth of 11 at Lingfield (1m5f, Polytrack) ten days ago, but that was a 0-50 classified event and he ran in snatches; shapes as though he will stay but he has had more chances than the rest of these (0-9).

Form & Verdict

Only a small amount of ability when trained by Roger Varian with her better efforts coming on the AW; beaten a long way in two starts over 1m/1m1f on turf since joining this yard, but return to an artificial surface may suit and she's stoutly bred on the dam's side; possibilities.
