Form & Verdict

Finally off the mark in an amateurs' event in early summer and will be happier back down in trip having bumped into one here last time; no obvious reason she won't go well under a jockey who has plenty of experience for one who's claiming 5lb today.

Three wins at 1m2f and 1m4f (including on heavy) in 2022; in the frame in six from eight starts in 2023, without really nailing it in the same way, but now 6lb lower than last spring and a revival could be on the cards.

Form & Verdict

Consistent enough but remains a maiden and has been turned over four times as favourite this season (seven defeats at 18-5 or shorter); the cheekpieces experiment has quickly been binned and others are more appealing.

Wildly inconsistent and it's not hard to argue he's happier on the AW; holds claims on his latest Polytrack second but that came in a 0-55 and he's far from certain to repeat it under a jockey still looking for his first winner.
