Form & Verdict

Coped very well with soft ground and drew clear for emphatic 6f win in refitted cheekpieces at Windsor nine days ago; still on a workable mark under 5lb penalty and needs to be taken very seriously in current mood.

Form & Verdict

Yet to add to his French maiden win in 2021 but suggested he might be ready to capitalise upon some help from the British handicapper when close third at Kempton (7f, AW) last month; not sure to benefit from today's drop back in trip but still makes appeal.

Placed twice off higher marks this spring (7f/6f) but two lesser efforts have followed and he's now 0-11 in Britain; will need to up his game here; seems versatile regarding ground.

0-10 since arriving from France where he won over 7f; seemed to be finding his level when going close at Brighton (6f, good to firm) but then disappointed at Chepstow when good to soft should have been okay; others appeal more.

7f winner in France as 3yo; has mostly found it hard work in Britain but he's better handicapped now and had close calls on the AW (7f) and at Brighton (6f) on his last two starts; can give it a good shot again.

Denied clear run before keeping on well for third at Lingfield (7f, AW) in March but is no longer the force of old and has become very inconsistent; well down the field at Lingfield a week ago; others preferred.

Form & Verdict

Three-time course winner (5.2f-7f) who was placed off marks slightly higher than today's on consecutive C&D starts last August; not seen since finishing third here (5.2f, soft) in October, though, so his fitness must be taken on trust.

Well treated on his Chelmsford win (5f, Polytrack) last November and he's run some good races this autumn including a third at Chelmsford on his penultimate run; should get a good pace to aim at on this drop back in grade and he has possibilities.
