Form & Verdict

Sole AW win at 1m2f here in 2021; struggled a bit for new yard this year and although getting better handicapped by the race he didn't do enough at Wolverhampton in March to fancy for this.

His six wins have been at 1m/1m2f but he finished well for a close second when upped to 1m4f here in March; up 3lb but he wasn't far off his best with that eyecatching effort and should have more to offer at this trip; key player.

Six-time winner over 1m and 1m2f; needs to bounce back from a poor effort in early February and he could be vulnerable over this new trip with a strong pace on the cards.

In good form for much of the winter; had the benefit of Benoit De La Sayette's claim when holding on well over C&D last month and although weighted to his best off 3lb higher he looks good for another solid run.

Form & Verdict

Change of scenery seems to have done the trick as he ran well for new connections here in February and had a Wolverhampton race sewn up from some way out last month (1m1f); back up 8lb but twice a winner off higher marks than today's in the past, over 1m on Polytrack elsewhere.

Has a patchy profile and he struggled at Kempton (1m3f) when last seen in June; now returns for another new yard but his last win was an emphatic success here (9.4f) in April and he looks interesting on that form; needs checking in market.

Handicap win came over 7f on Wolverhampton Tapeta last March and has yet truly to convince with his staying power at 1m, most recently over C&D in March.

Acts on both AW surfaces but his win came on Tapeta at Newcastle in January (7f) and he's been vulnerable at Chelmsford since; needs a short break since last seen in March to have revived him.

Just two Tapeta runs, winning the latest at Newcastle (7f) last January; treading water for much of 2023 but down in the weights and his recent second at Chelmsford (7f; short-priced favourite) was a lot better; can be effective back at 6f but this is a quick return for one who regularly has breaks between races.

In fine form on Tapeta and at Bath, winning at the latter track in April (1m) before going close there on Monday, showing how much he resented being passed by trying to bite the winner; rivals beware.

In good form last spring, including when beaten a short-head in the corresponding event 12 months ago; back to form with a C&D win (good) nine days ago, setting a strong pace but having his rivals out of their comfort zone and able to maintain his advantage despite running the final 2f in a funereal 28.22s; 5lb rise fair enough but he had a hard race there and could prove vulnerable turned out quickly.
