Form & Verdict

Has plenty of early speed and he comes here fit from the AW, winning at Wolverhampton in February and turning in two good efforts over 6f at Lingfield the last twice; return to 5f a positive and he's effective on good to soft; career-high mark but should give it a good go.

Form & Verdict

Twice placed at Ayr (6f, good) before running out the easy winner of a Ripon novice last August; made a promising return at Nottingham ten days ago when he couldn't quicken on soft ground and hung across the track in the final furlong; a sounder surface should suit and he's still capable of better at this trip but Nottingham wasn't the first time he's failed to keep a true line.

Two AW wins for Charlie Fellowes in late 2023; low-key stable debut at Newcastle in February but he bounced back quickly with a fine front-running third at Lingfield on Good Friday (6f); returning to turf won't be an issue and he has the speed to exploit the rail draw.

Prominent racer who won a couple of sprint handicaps for Charlie Fellowes in the latter part of 2023; sold for 75,000gns last month but made a low-key stable debut at Newcastle five weeks ago; other pace to contend with here and he looks vulnerable again.

Took him 25 attempts to get off the mark and both wins have come on the AW (6f/7f) this year; twice placed on turf (6f, good to firm) in between, but is now 3lb higher so he will need to find a bit more to break his turf duck at the 23rd attempt.

Form & Verdict

Finished with a flourish to take third on his Carlisle debut last June (5f, good to firm) and he is 12lb better off for half a length with the winner Washington Heights today; made no mistake at Beverley on his second start (5f, good) and he can be given the benefit of the doubt for his low-key run in a heavy-ground Listed event when last seen; suspicion he's very nicely handicapped and he's one to take seriously.

Useful 2yo, winning a Carlisle maiden last June (5f, good to firm) and running well in a valuable sales race at the Ebor meeting and the Redcar Two-Year-Old Trophy; the latter run confirmed his effectiveness on good to soft and he's interesting for a yard that took this in 2018.

Early promise as 2yo, placed on first two starts before making all in a small-field novice at Bath last June; ran into a dead end when making up some ground in the Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot but off since a low-key run in a York sales race in August (too free over 6f); has been gelded; usual tongue-tie left off on return; unraced on slower than good.
