Form & Verdict

Has form figures of 124 (over 7f on good) since switched to nurseries, gamely making all at Catterick then running creditably at Thirsk and Haydock; being from the Johnston stable, he could still improve further with racing; not dismissed.

Below par on penultimate outing but has a solid and progressive record otherwise; that effort is flanked by two wins, latest in four-runner nursery at Yarmouth (7f, good to firm); further improvement looks entirely possible; has to be feared.

In the frame in ten of his 12 starts since his latest success, as when fourth of ten at Kempton (1m, Polytrack) 15 days ago where he looked unlucky not to finish closer; his consistency means he gets little respite from the handicapper, but should run his race again.

Nothing wrong with any of his three course efforts and cheekpieces have helped lately; has had plenty of chances off this sort of mark but should run his race again and the step back up from 7f won't hurt.

Form & Verdict

Campaigned at Newbury in his maiden/novice runs and opened his account at the third attempt (6f, good); subsequently disappointing in Glorious Goodwood nursery (7f; prominent in betting; again led) but may do better still; remains of interest.

The drop to sprinting didn't help at Lingfield 13 days ago, weakening in the straight; blinkers return today but there is other pace on show and he's got too much to prove for comfort.

Won a 2yo novice at Newbury on his third run for Richard Hannon (6f, good); winless at three but he ran some good races off much higher marks than this; hasn't lasted home over further in two Class 4 events for new yard this season; may fare better sprinting but he's not a solid option.

1-11 for Richard Hannon; twice runner-up in small-field Polytrack handicaps this time last year including here (7f), but having been off for 198 days and been gelded he failed to beat a rival over the same trip back here last month; needs a good deal more.

Form & Verdict

Disappointing favourite on third run in maidens but bounced back in Doncaster nursery (7f, good to firm) last time, sticking on for close third; that was a promising handicap debut and he may well build on it; respected off bottom weight.

Form & Verdict

Raced only at 6f but he's bred to be suited by this new trip; possibly unsuited by the good to soft ground at Chester last time; progressive on good/firmer otherwise, including novice wins at Windsor and Newbury; may still have more to offer.
