Form & Verdict

Placed on good to firm last May and June; better form when back from a break for two AW handicaps at Wolverhampton in the autumn, firmly in charge in a five-runner race over 9.4f when last seen; will stay 1m2f; reappears in a hot race and needs better again.

Form & Verdict

Gelded prior to his narrow success (beat Sol Cayo by a head) in similar event over the extended 1m here last month when making AW/handicap debut; open to further progress in this sphere; big player provided he's as effective in blinkers (replacing cheekpieces worn the last twice).

J: James Doyle

T: Charlie Appleby

Gelded prior to his success on handicap debut here (8.6f) in October and he's finished close up on Tapeta (9.4f) and Polytrack (1m2f) in both runs since; still has potential after only six starts but he needs to find something extra at this new trip.

Form & Verdict

Has fourthitis on turf, with the latest defeat (1m2f nursery; beaten favourite) taking his form figures to 4444; hard to knock his consistency but he's not progressing as yet; chance depends on whether the switch to AW prompts improvement.

Best form on soft/heavy, notably a success in the Spring Mile at Doncaster (Thunder Roar second) on reappearance; only midfield in the Spring Cup at Newbury next time but better when fourth at Leicester (1m, soft) last weekend, with old rival Thunder Roar a place ahead of him on that occasion.

Form & Verdict

Nathaniel filly who showed ability in 1m maidens at top turf tracks in August, most recently going close at Goodwood in a race that's worked out very well; that form suggests she's well handicapped off an opening mark of 78; new trip should suit; strongly respected.
