Made all at Southwell on debut for Mick Appleby and had an excuse (coughing post-race) on sole run since; should still have more to offer for current yard and remains of interest; change of headgear.

Held on narrowly from Silky Wilkie at Bath (off 3lb lower) a fortnight ago, taking record on heavy going to 2-2; doesn't necessarily need ground that deep; likely player provided he remains in similar form.

Prominent racer; now 2lb lower than for his Chelmsford win in November (5f); mixed bag since, including when only seventh at Doncaster two weeks ago (had run well in the corresponding race in 2023); tough task trying to dominate this field but he's 1-1 on heavy ground and also goes well on soft.

Form & Verdict

Has gained all wins at Lingfield, the most recent in comfortable fashion under Sean Levey six days ago; well treated under a penalty (future mark 2lb higher) and has to be feared despite being 0-5 at Chelmsford.

Two 5f wins at Lingfield this year and he made a bold bid upped to 6f 13 days ago, having the field strung out turning for home but tying up close home; return to 5f is a big plus but he has run only once on turf in his last 43 starts (well beaten).

Completed a hat-trick in the autumn; however, balance of subsequent form suggest he's likely set for a supporting role; drops back in grade after coming up well short in Class 3 last time.

Completed a hat-trick on turf/Tapeta last summer and having dropped 2lb below his last winning mark, he ran better when third of six at Wolverhampton (5f, Tapeta) 11 days ago, finishing less than a length behind Bellagio Man; each-way claims if continuing his resurgence.

The third leg of his summer hat-trick came off 2lb higher at Doncaster but he's finished down the field in his last three runs including twice at Southwell this winter; has won over this C&D but he has a bit to prove and needs to get back in the groove.

Dual turf scorer for previous stable; not solid judged on his AW form (5f-7f) for new yard this winter; chance largely depends on how well he takes to first-time hood.

Usually seen over further and the ground was heavy when he won over 5f at Newmarket in November; fair effort on his return from four months off when fourth of eight here (6f) 19 days ago, but others are preferred over this trip.
