Form & Verdict

Nearly always runs his race and gained win number three when he pipped Single over C&D in July; this is more his trip nowadays, as shown with a lesser effort over 1m4f on AW at Kempton 18 days ago, and he may well have more to offer.

Won twice in 2022 (1m6f, good) and reappeared with another win at Leicester (1m4f, heavy) last April; absent since mid-division at Newmarket last May (final run for the now-retired William Jarvis) but he's just 1lb above his last winning mark and his new trainer is among the winners; chance.

Form & Verdict

Won on turf on his first four starts (one at 1m6f, then three at 2m) for new yard this season and then came from out the back to be fourth of 18 in the Northumberland Vase on Newcastle AW, which was a big run in the circumstances; makes more appeal at 2m but still very much one to note.

Excuses since returning from a year off, including on stable debut last time when back in the tongue-tie worn for all wins; looks to retain most of his ability but is 2lb above his highest successful mark and a tactical affair wouldn't be ideal.

Form & Verdict

Won two of first four starts but 0-10 since and this season's fall in the weights has not made much difference; has useful form at 1m6f, whereas last three runs were over about 1m4f, so there's a chance that this trip will see him in a better light again despite a tendency to sometimes race freely.

Three handicap wins in his time with Michael Bell and he made a creditable debut for this stable when seventh of 18 at Glorious Goodwood (1m2f) last month; won well over 11.4f last August but came last of six when tried over 1m6f on AW in November, so he has not proved his stamina.
