C&D winner last October on sole run for Brian Ellison and followed up when easily winning on stable debut at Musselburgh (2m) in May; having gone up 11lb he was only third of four at Hamilton last time but that slowly run 1m5f was against him and he's not discounted now back up in trip.

Form & Verdict

Little in four starts last year but, having been gelded and stepping up in trip, he has looked a different horse in handicaps since returning last month, winning over 1m6f on Tapeta at Southwell and Wolverhampton within the space of seven days; up another 2f from 8lb higher, but likely there is still more to come from him; hard to oppose.

Made it 4-6 in handicaps when drawing 27l clear at Ffos Las (1m6f, soft; 10lb higher today) in August, making most in an amateurs' race; failed to replicate that form under a penalty on good ground one week later but he stays at least 2m and a return to soft ground would presumably be a big help.

Hurdles winner in May and has landed five of her six starts over 1m6f-2m1f (all on turf) since returned to the Flat the following month; 5-5 under Aiden Brookes and another 4lb rise not the end of the world but although she has won on Tapeta she finished unplaced on the other nine occasions she raced on the AW, so there is a question mark.
