Form & Verdict

Poor strike-rate for Richard Hannon and wasn't having the best of seasons for him earlier in the year; sold 18,000gns since; however, he acts on Polytrack and has dropped significantly in the weights; market can guide.

Three-time Flat winner (at about 1m2f) who was a fair fourth on his hurdle and stable debut at Sedgefield (2m1f, soft) in November; that form has worked out well and he could improve for that first run since August; might not be far away in a first-time tongue-tie.

C&D winner for William Jarvis last October but he's been generally disappointing since including when beaten 12l on his recent stable debut at Nottingham; now 2lb lower than for his win but he needs a major revival back on Tapeta.
