Form & Verdict

Ran three times over 7f here for Phillip Makin last autumn (record 122) and made it fifth-time lucky for this yard when making just about all to beat 19 rivals in an amateurs' event at Newmarket (1m1f, good) in September; 8lb higher mark and the stiffer test may be enough to prevent a follow-up.

Form & Verdict

Winless in his first 14 starts under both codes, but having undergone wind surgery for a second time he could hardly have been more impressive when making a successful debut for this yard over C&D eight days ago; despite the nature of that success connections now reach for a hood, but even so a 5lb penalty may not be enough to stop him from going in again.

Prominent racer; feasibly weighted seeking a hat-trick after back-to-back Beverley wins (1m2f; has risen a combined total of 5lb); the stable is going really well, he's versatile ground wise, and this sharp track should suit; enthusiasm is tempered by inconclusive stamina over 1m4f.

Promise in three novices late last year including when fourth of nine at Wolverhampton (8.6f, Tapeta) on his final outing (form has worked out well); makes his handicap debut after 325 days off and the longer trip shouldn't be an issue on breeding, but he does have fitness to prove.

Both wins have come at Haydock (1m/1m2f) and is just 2lb higher than for the most recent; ran well when fourth of 12 at Ayr (1m2f, good to soft) five weeks ago (closely matched with Tilsitt on that form) and performed with credit to finish third in one previous go over this C&D (when ahead of Freak Out); should go well.
