Form & Verdict

Progressing nicely and off the mark at the fifth attempt when introduced to this trip at Wolverhampton (Tapeta) five weeks ago; appeared to idle in the closing stages there, so a 5lb rise isn't necessarily insurmountable.

Pretty consistent since winning narrowly at Lingfield (11.6f, good) in May; freshened up by a break since finishing third at Yarmouth (1m2f) in July, but seemingly isn't open to as much improvement as some of the other main contenders.

Lightly raced; has shown glimpses of ability in novice and maiden company (1m2f-1m4f); her brother Side Shot (8.6f-1m4f; RPR 98) was an AW winner; one to monitor with interest on AW and handicap debut.

Travelled smoothly into contention before demonstrating some quirks (wandered dramatically) once hitting the front to beat a stablemate of Arcadian Friend over C&D (from a 7lb lower mark) last month; unbeaten in two starts at Southwell and may have more to offer; high on the shortlist.

Form & Verdict

Reportedly suited by the step up in trip when scoring on handicap debut at Lingfield (1m4f, AW; 11-8 favourite) in July; runner-up at prohibitive odds on quick ground at Salisbury (1m6f) five days later and absent since; 10lb above his Lingfield mark but lightly raced and good chance.

Both career wins on Polytrack by over 4l, the first here and the second at Chelmsford last month; perhaps unsuited by bigger field and reportedly ran flat when finishing last in race won by Solution latest; cheekpieces could help him to bounce back.

Sole win in AW bumper in late 2020 but he went close off a reduced mark here recently (1m4f; first-time tongue-tie) when the subject of a major gamble; key player if he can back that up on the step up to 2m; cheekpieces on.
