Won a 3m handicap at Ayr (good to soft) last April but he has a mixed record since and was disappointing behind Curley Finger at Musselburgh two weeks ago; record now stands at 1-16 and he comes with risks attached.

Form & Verdict

Recorded her second hurdle win when bolting up at Doncaster (3m, good to soft) in January but she was hit with a 13lb rise for that and could only finish fourth of six at Newcastle (2m7f, good) last time; now switches back to forecast slower ground but she needs to kick on again to make a major impact.

Easy winner at Doncaster (3m, good to soft) last winter and also went close at Carlisle (3m1f, good to soft) in the spring, both under Dylan Johnston; not so good since but her latest fourth back at Doncaster was a bit better and she's well treated if staging a full-scale revival.

6yo who made it 2-7 over hurdles with his front-running win in a 14-runner handicap at Musselburgh (3m, good to soft; cheekpieces added) last month; up 5lb for that narrow success but he battled well to come out on top and still has potential as a stayer; big player.

Lightly raced maiden who caught the eye with his late headway when a clear third in Market Rasen handicap (2m4f, good to soft) in December; with another new yard now but he has plenty of stamina on dam's side and looks interesting upped to this trip on his return; tongue-tie added.

Won off a reduced mark over C&D (soft) in April when in a new headgear combination (tongue-tie/hood) that was retained when he finished third off this 7lb higher mark the following month (good); just the tongue-tie worn this time but he has had wind surgery and this mark might yet be okay.
