Form & Verdict

Record of 112 since handicapping, winning twice on AW (1m4f/1m6f) then unlucky second at Wetherby (1m6f, good to soft; turf debut) where he finished strongly having been forced to switch right inside the final 1f; big player if coping with this change of class (upped two grades).

Progressive stayer who won four times last year including at Newbury (2m, soft); looked better than ever when making a successful return from six months off at Kempton (2m, AW) last month and can score again despite 7lb rise.

Form & Verdict

Quickly resumed his progress at Windsor (11.5f, soft) two weeks ago, taking record in handicaps to 3-4; gives the firm impression he'll stay this new trip; now 18lb higher than opening mark but possibly hasn't reached his ceiling yet; enters calculations.

Won at Windsor (11.4f, soft) on second start last term and is now 3lb lower; that's with his form having slipped on final three starts last season and there's been no recovery in his two this year, not even when favourite over 1m4f on heavy at Thirsk last time.

Close second at Chelmsford (1m5f) on AW/seasonal debut; distant fifth at Brighton since and still has no worthwhile form on turf; headgear now enlisted; easily opposed from 16lb out of weights.

One win in 18 starts came in a four-runner hurdle in November and form of that race is decidedly shaky; poor under both codes since then including when well behind Reverberation over C&D in December.

Lowly rated maiden on the Flat; won what turned out to be a very uncompetitive juvenile hurdle here (2m1f, heavy) in November but was pulled up when back in a handicap hurdle at Southwell (2m4f, good to soft) recently.

Form & Verdict

From a family that has served his connections well; made an encouraging handicap debut at Doncaster (1m4f, soft; clear second) last month, with reappearance under his belt; gives the impression he'll take well to this combination of longer distance and first-time headgear; respected.

Made it 2-3 on AW when scoring at Wolverhampton (1m4f) in June but she has a solid record back on turf since and has finished a creditable third on soft ground in last two runs (1m4f/1m6f); now drops back into a Class 4 event and she shouldn't be far away.
