Form & Verdict

Showed ability in six starts over 1m-1m2f on turf for Dermot Weld and he narrowly made a successful stable/AW debut after five months off in a novice here (8.6f) four weeks ago (first start since being gelded); more needed on handicap debut but there is probably further progress in him.

Record of 3-4 on the AW but has comparable form on turf and ran right up to his best when third over 1m2f at Ayr 16 days ago; C&D winner in August who should be in the thick of it.

Has done well for shrewd current connections and scored at Wolverhampton (9.5f) last time, taking AW record to 3-4; only 1-11 on turf but the win came on most recent attempt in this sphere; steadily progressive and enters calculations.

Won his first two starts for this yard at this track, the second of them over C&D; added a Redcar handicap last month and ran another sound race when fourth at Newcastle last week (just in front of Carolus Magnus); should give it another good go.

Progressive in four starts for David Simcock, culminating in a narrow success in a Chelmsford novice (1m2f, Polytrack) in January; changed hands for 45,000gns the following month and makes his stable/handicap debut after 86 days off; still open to further progress and one for the shortlist.

Well handicapped on AW form as recent as last April and it's possible the first-time hood will help this headstrong sort, but he's finished well beaten on his last four starts and a major turnaround is needed.

Form & Verdict

Dual course winner (7f/8.6f) who has dropped 1lb lower than when successful at Epsom (1m2f, good) last summer; needs to do better than on his last two starts if he is to take advantage, though.

Eight-time AW winner who scored off 7lb higher over C&D in October; 0-13 since but he had a close call here in January and has been beaten less than 4l in his last five runs; has good draw on this drop back in trip and he's not ruled out.

Three course wins (8.6f/9.5f) towards the end of last year and he went close off this mark over C&D in February, but his latest effort suggested his busy schedule may have caught up with him; needs to bounce back; stable also runs Light Up Our Stars.

Generally very disappointing this season but arrested his decline when staying on well to take second behind bang-in-form rival at Chelmsford (1m6f) a fortnight ago and remains very well handicapped on older form.
