Form & Verdict

Broke his AW duck in C&D contest in October (sole run for Mick Appleby); has remained in form by being placed four times for new yard, most recently third to Tiger Beetle here; that consistent recent record gives him solid claims.

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.

Hasn't won on AW for almost three years; however, looks hard to dismiss on recent form, having made the frame in his last three races (including twice here); on a workable mark.

Well bred; rather a frustrating maiden for Sir Michael Stoute; however, opened his account in C&D handicap (held on narrowly) two weeks ago when having only his second run for new stable and second attempt on AW; could well build on that success; highly respected.

All three wins have been on Wolverhampton AW and his two seconds on turf were in 2021; while 2023 turf campaign rather petered out, he was third in a soft-ground race last April and has plenty of AW performances in the last six months to recommend him as an each-way prospect.

Left some very uninspiring AW form behind when respectable fourth on hurdling return at Worcester (2m, good) last month but is not sure to be suited by today's move back up in trip and others have more persuasive profiles; most turf form is on good ground; once ran well on good to soft.
