Form & Verdict

9yo who has failed to threaten on his last six starts and there's a big question mark regarding his current form; however, the drop back in trip and return to Ayr are both positives, as he's a seven-time course winner over 6f-1m, and he's dropped down the weights; he's one to consider.

Well below his best this season on his four starts for a new yard; however, he's well treated on the pick of his Irish form and his last two wins came in a visor, which goes back on today having been left off so far in Britain; interesting contender.

Won a three-runner handicap at Haydock (1m, soft) in June and returned to form with a fair fifth of 14 at Sandown (1m, good) last time; drops back down in grade and could be a contender in first-time cheekpieces.

12-race maiden, runner-up twice last August (1m and 7f; here on first occasion); soft ground and 1m2f/1m4f may well make the heavy defeats in his two starts this season forgivable; could be a lot more interesting today, although connections also now reach for headgear first time.

Form & Verdict

Bounced back to form from out of the blue to win at Pontefract (1m, good to firm) in July; can't be ruled out but a lesser performance followed at Windsor and he's now finished down the field on four of his five starts this season, so his claims are hardly solid; best turf form is on good/good to firm.
