Form & Verdict

Back from a break in decent form and is better drawn this time; can pull hard, as when not suited by the way the race panned out at a short price behind Waverley Star over C&D last time, but has a good chance of turning things round on revised terms.

Triple Tapeta winner who is still lightly raced on turf and was successful in this sphere (5f, soft) last spring; mixed record in his four runs this year but he was runner-up at Wolverhampton last time and has claims if he can back that up.

Form & Verdict

Has been expensive to follow but had Waverley Star behind when a bit unlucky at Lingfield, while he pulled hard early last time; always the chance he'll do the same again upped 2lb from a wide stall, but he's shortlist material in a first-time tongue-tie.

Got off the mark with an odds-on win in a Wolverhampton handicap (5f, Tapeta) in January but he's not gone on from that in four runs since; was forced wide over C&D last time but he finished behind Porfin in that race and it took his record to 1-14; others are more persuasive.

C&D winner off 5lb higher last summer and he hasn't been shaping up too badly here this spring, keeping on from too far back (missed break) when pipping the reopposing Wakai Umi for third last time; can win off this mark if things drop right.

Infrequent winner these days and is nothing like as good as he was, hardly surprisingly given his age; has enjoyed a consistent season, though, and while another furlong would have been ideal he holds each-way claims in a weak race down another 2lb.
