3 yo Colt

Form & Verdict

Only his fifth run and second since gelded when strong in the finish to prevail over C&D last week; escapes a penalty for that and he was due a 4lb drop, so he's effectively 7lb well-in this time.

Pacy mare; made all at Newcastle (5f; 33-1) in January and consistent in defeat (over 6f) on her next two starts; her latest effort (last of four) was disappointing though, so she'd have a bit to prove back on turf, particularly on soft ground; clear risks attached.

Gained reward for a string of good runs when winning a 6f handicap at Southwell in August; not so good over 7f on turf last time but these conditions should see him in a better light and a promising apprentice takes off a handy 7lb.
