Form & Verdict

He made a promising debut at Windsor last summer (6f, good to soft) and duly went one better in a big field at Newbury one month later; only midfield in a sales race at Newmarket when last seen; should stay 1m and moves into handicaps with untapped potential; the fact connections now reach for blinkers is slightly offputting though.

Won handicap/seasonal debut in May in first-time blinkers and easily the best of his three runs since came when second at Ascot in first-time cheekpieces (kept since); kept to 1m this term and while not disgraced over 1m at Glorious Goodwood last time, he didn't shout that 1m2f is what's needed.

Good-ground 2yo maiden winner who scored on his handicap and seasonal debut over C&D (good to soft) in May, and bounced back from a lesser run on quick ground when runner-up at Ascot (1m, good to soft) last month in first-time cheekpieces (retained); his course form is a big plus and he's respected.

Made a successful handicap debut after seven months off in first-time blinkers at Goodwood (1m, good to soft) in May, but might not have not handled the ground when fifth of seven at Salisbury (1m, good to firm) 16 days ago; could probably do with rain and he's a player if it does arrive, with cheekpieces given a go this time.

Form & Verdict

He didn't have to improve on his Irish form to make a winning stable debut at Newcastle in January (1m); too keen in a 1m2f handicap at Newmarket 16 days ago; he'll need a return to his very best to defy this mark though.

Promise in novice/maiden events over 6f, notably a close second at Nottingham on his third run (soft ground; RPR 83); couldn't justify favouritism on his nursery debut (7f, heavy) but still ran with credit to take fourth; gelded since; may have more to come over 1m on a sounder surface.

Form & Verdict

The pick of his three 2yo runs came over C&D on soft ground; sent off favourite for an interesting Nottingham handicap three weeks ago (1m2f, soft) and travelled strongly before a weak finishing effort; that may have sharpened him up and dropping back in trip unlikely to be an issue; drawn widest but retains potential and he's one to take seriously.

Narrow winner of a 7f novice at Wolverhampton in January; no match for Garrick Painter at Kempton in February but he took another step forward when a close second on his handicap debut 37 days ago (1m, AW); dam handled soft ground and he's one of the likelier ones.
