Form & Verdict

0-6 but has shown some ability and was a market springer when fourth of eight at Southwell (1m4f, Tapeta) last time (winner has gone in again three times since); return to this trip may help with a tongue-tie now given a go and interesting to see if his backers return.

After having undergone wind surgery she made it tenth time lucky with a narrow success at Kempton (1m, Polytrack) ten days ago; now 3lb higher and the longer trip should be just about within range on pedigree; each-way shout.

Now at the veteran stage, but showed he still possessed ability when ending a 30-race losing run over C&D last time, beating Persian Wolf by a head; just 2lb higher but he enjoyed a smoother trip than his rival so may struggle to confirm the form.

At the veteran stage and just 4-68, but his two wins here early last year included this race off 6lb higher, while the second success (1m5f) came from 8lb higher; his record suggests he may have needed both starts since returning from four months off in December and he lurks on a dangerous mark.

Won here (7f) as a 2yo and added a Nottingham classified event (1m2f, good) last summer; has dropped a fair bit in the weights since then and finished third of 12 off this mark at Southwell (1m3f, Tapeta) last time (runner-up has won since); each-way claims.

Some promise on her debut for Dermot Weld last summer but not finished within 9l of the winner in four outings since including on handicap debut at Kempton (1m3f, Polytrack) last time; needs the cheekpieces to unlock improvement.
