Wins have come round stiffer courses; ran poorly when beaten a long way behind Quercus Robur at Doncaster last time and, like that one, would not want much rain.

Regular visitor to Pontefract with three wins and three seconds from 12 outings; however, his most recent efforts were a well-held third of four to Yorkindness over C&D and a tailed-off last of seven over 2m2f so he needs to get back on track.

Form & Verdict

Cheekpieces have helped and he improved again for the step up to staying trips on the AW this winter; was said to have been unsuited by soft ground last time (ran well enough on it here previously) but it may be the handicapper has caught up now.

Won over 1m2f/2m on turf/AW on four of his last nine starts and although beaten over 7l when second of six at Catterick (1m6f, soft) 16 days ago, he still finished a long way clear of the third; highly respected.

Form & Verdict

Finished last season on a high, with two tenacious wins over C&D on slow ground; is still low mileage and, while this is stronger on his comeback from seven months off, upped from 0-55 company off a 4lb higher mark, he could well be up to it.

Made it 3-4 in turf handicaps (two of them here; all over 1m4f) when coming away with the favourite at Thirsk four days ago; this is a bit stronger under a penalty and has stamina to prove but he enters calculations.

Highly progressive last year in winning five times, from 1m4f to 2m on all sorts of ground; went close at Goodwood in August (2m4f, soft) off just a 4lb lower mark and he'd probably had enough when below par on his final start.

Won easily over C&D last summer off a similar mark and back to form at Thirsk recently; handles soft ground but wouldn't mind some drying weather and good chance either way for a yard in scintillating form.

Very patchy under both codes and his best Flat efforts have come on Tapeta; probably didn't see out an extended 2m5f last time but doesn't make much appeal either way.

Fair fourth over 2m2f here (good to soft) last October and now 4lb lower; however, she was well beaten by the first two when third at Redcar (2m, soft) a fortnight ago when fit from hurdling; others appeal more.

1-23 in France and 0-7 in Britain; hurdling hasn't worked out (refused to race on penultimate appearance, tailed off latest) and her one piece of solid handicap form last season is not enough to persuade.
