Form & Verdict

Ran well in defeat on all four 2yo starts (6f/7f, including on good ground) and improved to win on last month's reappearance at Ripon (1m, soft); he's 5lb higher in a hotter race here but had something to spare last time and could have more left in the tank; on the shortlist.

Both wins at 1m but seemed to stay 1m2f okay on his penultimate run; gelded since being below par last time in new blinkers (now discarded) and certainly not one to give up on.

Kicked off 3yo campaign with two wins (1m, soft/good to soft; including C&D) and back to form when third at Newmarket (1m2f, good) last time, when shaping as though he may appreciate this drop back in trip; wears first-time blinkers and he's one to consider.

All three 2yo starts on slow turf, including C&D novice win (good to soft); disappointing in recent C&D handicap (good) but she should leave that comeback run well behind at some point; slow ground would be a plus.

Easily won Redcar novice (7f, heavy) last November on his third start and didn't enjoy a clear run when keeping on for fourth of six in Beverley handicap (7.4f good to soft) on reappearance; today's extra yardage can help but he has something to find with Feel The Need on that latest form.

Ended last season with poor AW run in November and ought to have been suited by the heavy ground when down the field on this month's reappearance outing; now has questions to answer but is well handicapped if the first-time cheekpieces prompt a return to form.

7f novice winner on the AW and confirmed his effectiveness on Polytrack when a close third back there over 1m 18 days ago; that was his first run since being gelded and in a tongue-tie; likely contender if handling this faster ground (all turf runs on slower) and breeding offers hope in that respect.

Form of ready novice win on third start last back end (7f here) is strong with the second 3-5 since (peak RPR 100) and other winners in behind; excuses can be made for defeat on his return/handicap debut (started 3-1) and he could be a different proposition now gelded; tongue-tie goes on.

Form & Verdict

Well beaten last summer in two Group races (7f, good) and absent since; however, he returns having had wind surgery which could help him tap back into the promise shown when winning his first two starts (7f, good); he's likely to be suited by this step up in trip and could play a leading role.

Started his career with two juvenile wins in 2022; had some tough assignments after that and he got back on track with respectable frame efforts at Haydock and Doncaster (both at 1m) last summer; now switches to AW after 218 days off but he's on a dangerous mark and needs a close look.

Runner-up over C&D (good to soft) on debut last September and creditable Listed fourth at Pontefract (1m, good to soft) in October; struggled in a hot novice at Newbury (1m2f, soft) three weeks ago and needs to leave that well behind, but he retains potential for a trainer who does well here.
