Form & Verdict

Having dropped down the weights he returned to form with a front-running second off this mark over C&D (good to soft) in August; can't be ruled out but this 10yo is back to having something to prove having finished tailed off at York (7f, good to soft) only three days ago.

11yo who returned to form when third off this mark at Musselburgh (7f, good to soft) last month; also effective on soft ground; patchy profile this year and he likes Musselburgh, but he's not ruled out.

1m may stretch him nowadays which excuses his recent run at Ayr; has enjoyed a predominantly good campaign over 7f and he could be a contender if conditions suit (effective on good to soft; unproven on soft).

On a 17-race losing run going back to last September and he's inconsistent, but he was a good third over C&D (good to soft) in August and occupied the same position when running well behind Monhammer and Cobra Kai at Ayr (7f, good to soft) a fortnight ago; thereabouts if on a going day.

Well beaten at Pontefract 18 days ago but the race was teed up for the hold-up horses and he wasn't the only one to run below form; running well prior to that and he's versatile ground-wise; could bounce back and play a leading role.
