Form & Verdict

Multiple AW winner at Wolverhampton; 0-9 this year but shaped encouragingly here two weeks ago in the race won by Perfect Soldier; that form has been boosted since; good chance off a handy mark, provided he takes well to first-time cheekpieces.

Form & Verdict

Last five wins came at 1m2f on turf and it's a long time since won over 1m or on AW; however, ties in closely with Perfect Soldier and Whatwouldyouknow on C&D running two weeks ago (finished third); again has place claims, at a minimum.

Modest maiden who wore blinkers here (7f) the last twice, running well on first occasion; chance of first success largely depends on how well he responds to headgear switch (now goes in hood).

Made all in similar event over C&D fortnight ago and that performance has substance (second and fourth have scored since); has an unimpressive strike-rate but could well follow up if he's in the same form as last time; only 3lb higher.

No joy over 1m2f the last twice and now drops back in trip; strike-rate is only 1-29 but the win came off this mark (1m1f, turf); fighting chance if back to that form.

In good form this season, scoring in good style off 6lb lower on reappearance (1m, heavy) before finishing close third to Do I Dream with a 4lb penalty at Ripon last time (1m, heavy); this stiff 7f should be no problem; should go well again.
