Form & Verdict

Has run some creditable races at a variety of trips this year and he was forced very wide in the home straight when a eyecatching fifth here (2m) last time; hard to rule out a good run back in trip but he's not easy to predict and his last win was in 2019.

Seen mostly on Tapeta and has more to prove on Polytrack, as shown by latest start; 1m6f wins at Wolverhampton this May and June, with a close call at Newcastle on penultimate start, but there's a bit more for him to prove with the 105-day absence.

Form & Verdict

Won twice over 2m at Newcastle (Tapeta) in autumn 2021 but he missed last year and has been out of sorts in both runs (1m4f) this spring; goes back up in trip with blinkers reapplied but he needs a major revival.

Took a while to get off the mark but he's won over 2m in his last two starts and latest was at this track 17 days ago; that was a narrow success but he travelled smoothly for a long way and is only 2lb higher on this drop back in trip; big player.

Seven-race maiden who was tailed off on his hurdling debut in December and was the same story back in this sphere at Bath (11.6f, soft; first run after wind op) last month; dropped another 5lb but he has a lot to prove again and others are more convincing; cheekpieces worn last time are removed.
