1-9 for Sir Mark Prescott; another long absence before this season but his close third of seven here (1m4f) last time gave renewed hope and he shaped as if this move back up in trip will help.

Sparked in January when the visor went on initially but well beaten on fourth attempt in one and same story when switched to blinkers on latest start; no headgear today and he's on a competitive mark if reversing the slide.

He is fit from hurdling, including a win in February after 267 days off; unraced on Flat since 2018 and his AW wins were in 2017, but he has fallen in the weights.

His AW wins were all in 2017; won twice over hurdles in 2023 and penultimate start (Wolverhampton 2m) showed all is not lost on AW, but he ran poorly (14-1; made most) with blinkers reinstated over C&D one week ago behind two of today's rivals; others look a bit more solid.

Had an extremely fruitful end to 2020 but no joy since; back with Tony Carroll for his four starts this winter but he threatened to be competitive on only the second occasion; falling in the weights but others preferred.

First turf success at Lingfield (2m, good to firm) in June but, not for the first time, he was well beaten on good to soft next time and his latest third was on AW; the state of the ground is clearly important.

Form & Verdict

All three wins were under Mia Nicholls this January-March, over C&D on final occasion; has mostly been front-running and it didn't pay off at Lingfield last time following a slow start; that was also only four days after his latest win (narrowly his shortest gap between races) so there are possible excuses; big shout if he bounces straight back.

Three wins over staying trips on the AW early last year including two here (one over this trip); has dropped 1lb below his last winning mark, but the big imponderable is the year absence; market support would make him of interest.

Form & Verdict

1m4f Newcastle AW win in March 2022 off 2lb lower; scored twice over hurdles last summer and may well have needed the run when back on Flat this month after 147-day absence; assuming he's come on since, not dismissed.

No progress since juvenile days (a standout Epsom third over 7f); raced twice after wind surgery for Richard Hughes last year and has been gelded since joining Steph Hollinshead for 2,000gns; has potential on pedigree over 1m4f, but tough to know what to expect.
