Form & Verdict

Won well off just 2lb lower at Sandown (1m2f, good to firm) in July 2021; has lacked consistency this term but his respectable sixth in the John Smith's Cup (three starts ago) is not yet forgotten and he's better treated now; big chance if he's at the top of his game.

Form & Verdict

Nicely bred 3yo who has been generally progressive, albeit without always looking straightforward, in this first season; form dipped at Newbury (1m2f) most recently but may still have more to offer; record is currently 3-5; remains of interest.

Record of 4-9; posted his best RPR by some way when coming clear in a 1m2f AW handicap in June before reportedly unsuited by the good to soft ground when favourite for York's John Smith's Cup (also raced freely); the potential is there to make a mark at Listed level.

Runner-up on final two starts last season (1m2f/1m3f, good/AW) and improved form when readily winning six-runner Class 3 at Lingfield (1m2f, AW) last month; unraced on slow ground; this is much tougher but this lightly raced 4yo is ahead of the handicapper under a 5lb penalty; one to consider.

All three wins have come first time out (2020, 2021 and 2022) over 1m2f at Yarmouth on good to firm, making all in small fields on last two occasions; failed to repeat the feat in a much more demanding Newmarket race on this year's return, but third at Epsom on Oaks day was creditable; likely to find this race a bit too competitive.

33-1 for the 20-runner Lincoln at Doncaster (1m) on reappearance six weeks ago but won it comfortably from Lattam, coming smoothly from off the pace; 7lb higher today; chief concern is probably that all his turf runs for this yard last term were on soft and all his three career wins have been on soft, but 1m1f is no problem and he had plenty of form on good or firmer in 2021 and 2022; has to be considered.

Won comfortably at Goodwood (1m1f, soft) last September on fourth stable start and he remains well treated on his old form; he ran pretty well on his final two starts last season but needs something extra if he's to win this competitive handicap on his return to action.

Useful on his day; respectable sixth in big-field handicap at Glorious Goodwood (1m2f) two starts ago, showing his best turf form in a light 2022 campaign; defied a 4lb higher mark on AW last autumn and bagged Group 3 honours early in career; not dismissed.
