Form & Verdict

Twice went close on turf in the first half of last autumn and won at Wolverhampton (5f, AW) in November; returned from a break with a fair fifth of seven at Wolverhampton (5f, AW) a fortnight ago, when he had a wide trip, and he could improve for that outing; might have a part to play.

Very well handicapped on last spring's form but he regressed subsequently and needs to turn things around on this first run of the year.

His last win was 12 months ago but that was over C&D and he's finished runner-up at Pontefract and Redcar (both at 5f on soft) in last two starts; on same mark as for both those runs and he's respected with blinkers added.

Doesn't win too often (4-30) but 5f on soft ground is what he wants and he saw it out well to finish second last time at Pontefract; that was in a higher grade so his claims are crystal clear here.

Lightly raced 4yo who raced just four times last season and didn't really threaten; however, he's dropped down the weights and might not be far away if at the top of his game on this reappearance outing.

Form & Verdict

Went close at Wolverhampton (5f, AW) last month on second handicap start and soft ground may not have suited when tailed off at Bath last time; this lightly raced 4yo retains potential and could be a contender now back on better ground (ran okay on good going on debut last August).

Two C&D wins since July; failed to fire over C&D last month (vet reported she was stiff behind after the race); better than that and she's one for the shortlist.

Both wins have come over C&D, latterly when getting up late in a 0-52 handicap 25 days ago; 2lb rise shouldn't prevent another good run and Billy Loughnane is an obvious plus in apprentice company.

Inconsistent and can have issues in the stalls, which proved a problem when a well-beaten favourite at Beverley on Wednesday (reared at the start and blindfold was removed late); however, he's well handicapped on last year's two fast-ground wins and is capable of a bold show.

His form was regressive in the final third of last year and a major turnaround is needed on reappearance, but he's dropped down the weights and returns with his trainer's horses running well; C&D winner; not discounted.

Well beaten on last month's reappearance at Newcastle and it's hard to be confident on the back of that, but he's unproven on AW and may have needed the run; now just 1lb higher than when winning at Ayr (5f, good) last July and he's not written off.
