Form & Verdict

Improving colt who made a mockery of his opening mark in C&D handicap in October (back from break) when last seen, making all for a 5l success in powerful style; the runner-up has boosted the form by scoring twice since; could prove Listed/Group class in due course and gives the impression he'll cope with a 12lb rise in his mark; strongly respected.

He has struggled in hot 7f handicaps at Ascot on his last two starts but he began this campaign with a good second at Kempton (7f, AW); won't mind the ground but he'll need to be at his very best to defy top weight in this company.

Showed he's still capable of useful form last season, winning twice off 3lb lower; however, returns to action as a 10yo so it remains to be seen whether he can maintain the same level of ability; others preferred.

Has lots of ability and often the victim of races not being run to suit when with former yard; good second at Yarmouth on return to Robert Cowell's yard 19 days ago (5f, good to firm); good mark but often slowly away and this isn't a track at which to be conceding cheap lengths early.

Being back with one of his former yards might help mentally but he's been on the downgrade in recent times and his last two wins (both in the spring) came over 6f on the AW; interesting to see how he goes in the market for yard that also runs Angle Land.
