J: Paul Mulrennan

T: Jim Goldie

All of his nine wins have come on turf but he's held his form since his last success at Ayr (1m2f) in September and has run well here (1m2f/7f) in last two starts; this big step back up in trip is a positive and he shouldn't be far away.

T: Jim Goldie

Three wins at Ayr (1m-1m2f) this year and arrives on the back of some creditable placed efforts, the latest over 1m2f here; all 50 career starts over 1m+ so the unknown is whether he'll be fully effective over this shorter distance.

Three wins from seven attempts here, and bumped into an improved stablemate when neck second of six over 1m4f on Friday night (soft); today's trip is probably a bare minimum but he's in top form and still the one to beat.

Sole win came in juvenile hurdle in November 2020; showed little on either of his Flat outings in the spring for Chris Gordon but he's been given a real chance by the handicapper and market support on his stable debut would be significant.

Form & Verdict

Gradually back to form this year and won at Newcastle (1m2f, AW) and Newbury (1m2f, good to firm) in August; only fifth of ten at Wolverhampton last time but he rarely runs well there and he could bounce back (won twice over C&D on good to soft/soft last season).

Often makes the frame (ten seconds, six thirds) but he has a modest strike-rate; shaped as if still in form over 1m4f last time and should be suited by this drop back in trip but others still appeal more for the win.
