Form & Verdict

Well treated on best 5f form for Mick Appleby in 2021, including on Tapeta elsewhere, and although he hasn't been an immediate hit back with this trainer he looks well worth the return to 5f; these aids replace visor.

Returned to form back on turf when scoring under a prominent ride over C&D (soft) three weeks ago; up 4lb but he remains feasibly treated on his best form and won't mind if the ground dries out; shortlisted.

Reliable on AW surfaces since handicapping, had to be steadied at a crucial stage before finishing strongly over 5f at Lingfield last week; having first run in a handicap here but good chance of going well again.

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.

Form & Verdict

Six wins at 7f, 6f and 5f in 2021, including on Tapeta elsewhere; mostly in hibernation last year but he didn't look a lost cause at Wolverhampton in November despite a slow start (stewards enquired, explanation noted); 12lb lower than latest winning mark; interesting on course debut.

Sole win at 6f; had slow start for new yard but has a good mark to exploit and did well to get as close as he did on the drop to 5f at Newcastle last week (cheekpieces left off, first-time visor today); involved.

Both AW wins at Wolverhampton (5f/6f) but he handled this surface perfectly well when a strong-finishing sixth from off the pace over C&D in December (sole course run); in the thick of it if the race is truly run.

Maiden; no show in his first 6f handicap at Newcastle last week but he had shown promise over 5f previously and would have been quite a bit closer with a better run at Wolverhampton in December; not dismissed.
