Form & Verdict

Reappeared with easy win on his turf and handicap debut at Redcar (1m, soft) last Monday, and he would have followed up under this 6lb penalty at Chelmsford (1m, AW) last Thursday but for his jockey easing up (received 28-day ban); good chance he'll win this if busy spell hasn't caught up with him.

Sent handicapping for three wins (all on softer than good; unraced on heavy) and a controversial second from four starts this spring, all at odds on; good to firm may have been against him in June on his only appearance since; absent three months but he catches the eye with the ground back in his favour and his sire gives encouragement for 1m2f.

Three wins and a controversial second in four handicap runs this year, climbing 31lb in the weights as a result; suspect there is more to come and he's one to take seriously; untested on faster than good to soft.

Runner-up on reappearance at Newcastle (7f, AW) then got off the mark when beating Edmund Ironside at Redcar (1m, soft) a fortnight ago; just 3lb higher today and ran well on fast ground last year; can go well once more.

Gets away with this trip but it's easy to argue 7f suits ideally; pulled hard on heavy ground last time and is better than that but he'd been turned over as favourite three times on the spin previously and there's little room for manoeuvre off this mark.

0-7 but runner-up on final 2yo start (1m, heavy) and same story on reappearance at Redcar a fortnight ago (1m, soft; behind Camacho Star); can give another good account provided this different ground isn't an issue.

Lightly raced filly who showed promise on turf last year and may have needed the run, and been unsuited by return to AW, when tailed off on recent handicap and seasonal debut at Southwell (in first-time cheekpieces); however, she nevertheless has plenty to prove after that; blinkers now go on.

This is just his fifth start and there's some potential in his pedigree; returns from a break and things may click at some point but he failed to threaten on his four 2yo starts, most recently on his nursery debut at Beverley (7.4f, good to firm) last August, and his claims aren't compelling.
