Form & Verdict

Responded well to edge ahead near the finish when stepped back up to 1m at Southwell 23 days ago; the first two pulled 10l clear so a 3lb rise could prove lenient.

Nothing wrong with his consistency and when sixth last week at Southwell he wasn't beaten far; this looks a bit tougher than usual for him and most of his form is at shorter.

Unable to land a significant blow in three maiden/novice races in 2021 and fared no better when sent off at 66-1 for last month's 1m2f Newcastle handicap debut after nearly a year on the sidelines; too soon to write off but hard to make a case for.

Form & Verdict

Scored over 7f at Kempton on handicap debut in May and has reached the frame on all four outings since; beaten 7l when fourth back at Kempton latest but she was badly hampered over 1f out and can be treated as if still in form; prominent showing likely if she sees out the trip (7.5f is the furthest she's tackled to date).
