Form & Verdict

Consistent miler in 2021 season for Chris Wall and he's on a competitive mark on that form; some fair runs early last year over hurdles for Laura Young and may now have the stamina for this trip; has an absence to defy but interesting to see how he goes in the betting on debut for another new yard.

Fairly useful Flat-racer who came good over hurdles with clearcut success at Newbury (2m, heavy; first-time tongue-tie) last month; might be seen to even better effect if the ground dries out here; likely contender.

Capitalised on a drop in the weights to win at Newbury (1m4f, good) last September and good second here (1m4f, heavy) last October when last seen; ran well here on last year's reappearance and is firmly in calculations.

Grabbed the favoured stand rail when winning on soft ground at Epsom and a 4lb rise seemed to find him out at Ascot (again 1m4f on soft); may be vulnerable once more, though this faster surface won't faze him.

Returned to form with close third at Wolverhampton (9.4f, AW) a fortnight ago and he's also run well on turf (including on soft); won't be far away if repeating that latest form but he has a patchy profile.

All three wins have been on Wolverhampton AW and his two seconds on turf were in 2021; while 2023 turf campaign rather petered out, he was third in a soft-ground race last April and has plenty of AW performances in the last six months to recommend him as an each-way prospect.

Needs to produce more than he's managed on AW the last twice but it wasn't a bad performance most recently and the forecast conditions are in his favour for this return to turf, as he was in fine form on soft/heavy ground last autumn (including on two starts here); could go well.

Back in good form at Newmarket last autumn and scored again at Windsor (under Sorin Moldoveanu) on reappearance, all over 1m2f; he'd fallen markedly in the weights prior to those three outings and earlier peak efforts suggest there is still plenty of mileage in his revised mark.
