Form & Verdict

Three Polytrack wins when trained by Jim Boyle; creditable effort when third in a 1m2f selling handicap at Lingfield last month, after which he was claimed by new connections for £7,200; can be slowly away but he starts out for Keith Dalgleish on a dangerous mark; interesting.

He was in good form on Tapeta early in the year, winning over C&D in January off a 5lb higher mark; generally struggled on turf this summer but quite possible the return to this track will pique his interest.

Prominent racer; good return to action at Catterick in May and followed it with an all-the-way success at Ayr in June (7f, good to soft); he is only 1lb higher today but that is due to three lesser displays since; unplaced in five runs at Newcastle.
