Form & Verdict

Often ran well in good races for Archie Watson; short of his best on stable debut at Newcastle in February (went without headgear) but likely to be seen to better effect with cheekpieces returning and a new tongue-tie added; well drawn to attack; not ruled out.

Front-runner who was given a peach of a ride to win at Lingfield on Good Friday; only midfield back on turf three weeks ago and even the booking of the red-hot Frankie Dettori may not be enough to tip the scales in his favour today.

Took advantage of a drop in the weights and a fine front-running ride to win 6f Class 3 on AW at Lingfield six weeks ago; 2lb rise still leaves him with some handicapping potential; easy lead unlikely this time though.

In a rich vein of form at present, winning three of his last five starts; this looks more competitive than the Chelmsford event he won last week and he has a 5lb penalty to shoulder; still a contender with Ryan Moore taking over.

Had form swings for new connections in 2023 but showed what could be done when impressive in the Stewards' Cup (6f, heavy) at Goodwood in July; latest win, over 5f at Doncaster in October, was also on heavy but he acts on good ground, too, and now just 1lb higher than at Doncaster.

Had been threatening prior to a cosy win at Kempton last month (6f); unpenalised for a Newcastle handicap last time but he raced too freely and tied up late on; 4lb higher today but the sharper test should be in his favour.

Beat 15 rivals to win at Doncaster (6f, good) in May and followed up in commanding fashion in 15-runner handicap over this C&D (good to firm); only third of eight off this increased mark at Newmarket (6f, good), and doubt about slow ground, but he's clearly well suited by a big-field scenario.

He has enjoyed a fine winter and his latest second at Newcastle (7f) was as good as anything he'd achieved in victory; Billy Loughnane takes off a very handy 5lb and he's one for the shortlist.
