Form & Verdict

Made the running on last four starts, running creditably in three; that includes latest when a visor replaced usual cheekpieces over C&D nine days ago but he kept hanging left up the straight; no headgear today; acts on soft.

Dual soft ground winner who finished behind three of these when fifth of 16 over C&D 15 days ago, albeit being bumped and stumbling in the home straight wouldn't have helped; not dismissed, especially if aided by the switch to blinkers.

Form & Verdict

Fair form in two (one on soft) of his runs as 2yo; no significant impact in his five handicaps this season, on last two starts trying 1m2f then 1m3f; 9lb lower than on reappearance but others have much more pressing claims.

Form & Verdict

Won a four-runner contest at Chepstow (1m2f) in July and good second at Newbury (upped to 1m4f, again good to firm) next time; too free in front on penultimate start and ran respectably latest, both at Newmarket, but she probably needs overall improvement; unraced on softer than good.

Consistent this year apart from when something seemed amiss on second start; dictated the pace when a close last of three on the move up to 1m4f on Wolverhampton AW last time; probably stays but needs a bit extra; unraced on softer than good.
