Joined this yard in May last year and scored twice on turf (1m, good to firm) in the summer; below form at Doncaster (1m, soft) on his final outing and makes his AW debut after six months off; market may help.

Very useful handicapper who usually front-runs; better than ever when going down only narrowly in a valuable 1m handicap at York's Ebor meeting (good to firm) 16 days ago but he'll need to up his game to go close in this higher grade.

Record since debuting for this yard in December reads 1321, winning twice at Southwell (1m, Tapeta) and running a nice sort close at Lingfield (1m, Polytrack); another 4lb higher, but his fitness isn't in doubt and high on the list.

All six wins on turf but running well on AW lately and probably did well to last for as long as he did when third of 12 at Newcastle (1m, Tapeta) ten days ago; races off the same mark and should go well again.

Form & Verdict

Has been kept busy during the winter, including three wins over 7f/1m on the Lingfield Polytrack, but he can act on Tapeta too as he showed when second of seven over 7f here this month; fitness not in doubt, but this stiffer mile does pose a question.

Two wins for the Gosdens, the latest at Chelmsford (1m, Polytrack) last summer; ended the campaign with two moderate efforts on Polytrack, but he now makes his debut for his new stable after five months off having changed hands for 27,000gns in October; worth a market check.

In good form at around 1m on soft turf in the autumn, winning at Nottingham and Leicester and running with credit when bidding for the hat-trick on the former track; probably found 1m2f too far here on his only previous AW start, but his record does suggest he may be better for the run.
