Pops up with a good run every now and then but finished well down the field after fluffing the start in Chelmsford classified race a week ago and his overall profile is not appealing.

Form & Verdict

Nicely treated having slipped back to last winning mark; not in the same form since that turf success but could well revive now back at a weaker level (suited by 0-55 grade); scored twice here last winter; respected.

Veteran; last win came in 2019 and badly lacks recent match practice having been absent for 13 months; returns on career-low mark but the betting may prove best guide.

Little between him and Inaam on 7f form here in February; arrived late on the scene to end losing run over that trip next time; fair runner-up over 6f on turf in April but this sharp test is a different matter.

0-13; better effort when beaten just over 2l into fifth of eight behind Moveonup at Chelmsford (6f, Polytrack) a week ago; has twice been placed at this trip, but still needs a bit more in order to break her duck.

Most recent success came in C&D classified event in August; has lacked consistency since, mostly at this venue, but holds good claims off current mark provided she's back on song.

Can pop up at big prices, such as in this race in 2021 (50-1 win off 12lb higher) and on Polytrack three starts ago (40-1 win); the drawback is that she's not easy to predict.

Not as good as she was and is wildly inconsistent now, following up her surprise C&D win (first-time visor) with a poor run last Thursday; hard to know what to expect in truth.

Pacy mare; made all at Newcastle (5f; 33-1) in January and consistent in defeat (over 6f) on her next two starts; her latest effort (last of four) was disappointing though, so she'd have a bit to prove back on turf, particularly on soft ground; clear risks attached.
