The standout in-form candidate after front-running efforts on last three starts brought two 1m2f Beverley wins and a short-head defeat off this mark in blanket finish over Musselburgh's 1m4f; should go very well again.

J: Sam James

T: Gemma Tutty

Prominent racer; feasibly weighted seeking a hat-trick after back-to-back Beverley wins (1m2f; has risen a combined total of 5lb); the stable is going really well, he's versatile ground wise, and this sharp track should suit; enthusiasm is tempered by inconclusive stamina over 1m4f.

Form & Verdict

In excellent form for this yard early in the year, winning three times at Southwell (7f-1m) and adding a 1m2f handicap at Beverley in April; two runs back from a break have been respectable while also suggesting he may need a bit more help from the handicapper.

Turf winner in Ireland last summer; slow start for this yard but he returned to form with a good second over 1m here last week, leaving the impression this step back up in trip would help; has to be on the shortlist off the same mark.

Useful 2yo for Aidan O'Brien (Group 1 placed) but it's been a steady decline since ,albeit he ran well when fourth of 14 at Wetherby (1m2f, good) last time; down another 1lb and anyone's guess if he can build on that, but he would have a good chance if he can.
