OR: 82

Form & Verdict

Justified favouritism with a 5l success at Southwell (1m6f) returned to AW last month, adding to his two turf wins in June; this 3yo looks open to further improvement and warrants respect despite taking an 8lb hike for latest performance.

Well beaten on last season's reappearance but he ran a couple of good races subsequently during a light campaign, including a win at Thirsk (1m4f, good) in September, and he's not ruled out on his return.

Form & Verdict

Form dipped at Redcar last month but generally consistent on turf otherwise this term and could well bounce back, provided he's as effective returned to AW (third attempt); nicely treated off last winning mark.

The two wins from his four starts at Ayr were both more than two years ago, but he also ran creditably over C&D last September; downhill since his Musselburgh win this April, with the switch to a visor (replacing regular blinkers) perhaps contributing last time; reverts with headgear today and he's 4lb below his last winning mark.

Form & Verdict

0-8 on turf for new stable this term but has dropped in the weights and last two efforts (1m/1m2f) suggest he's coming back to form; 1-1 on AW and enters calculations back in this sphere; won over 1m4f in 2020.

Scored on turf last autumn; 0-8 this term but ran well (close third) over 1m6f here most recently, despite taking a good hold; unexposed on AW and has a fighting chance, especially if settling better.

Form & Verdict

Knocking at the door prior to opening his account in Class 6 handicap here (1m6f) last month; unexposed at this sort of distance and Saffie Osborne's useful claim offsets a 3lb rise; upped in grade but runs off a very low weight; shortlisted.
