9st 9lb

J: Rossa Ryan

Won two of first three starts, before fading into a respectable fifth in the 1m4f German Derby; tailed off in handicap in September (1m2f, soft) on sole start since and needs overall improvement, but he is lightly raced.

J: Rossa Ryan

T: Ralph Beckett

Promising record of 2-3 on home soil, including a ready success on handicap debut; respectable fifth in German Derby when last seen, shaping as if this drop back to 1m2f will be ideal; likely has more to offer and looks one for the shortlist.

Form & Verdict

Had wind surgery prior to his success in Wolverhampton handicap (9.5f, AW; first two clear) six weeks ago, opening his account at the fifth attempt; open to further improvement; fighting chance off bottom weight.

11st 0lb

J: Marc Goldstein

T: Michael Attwater

Ordinary Flat winner; just under 3l behind Kartoon And Co when highly tried in Huntingdon's Chatteris Fen on hurdling debut and another good run behind respected opposition here since (both on good to soft); bit to find and questionable whether today's testing conditions will see him to the same effect.

33/1

3 yo Colt

OR: 82

Form & Verdict

Thrice-raced colt who has progressive form, most recently winning at Wolverhampton (9.5f AW maiden) in January; could do well in handicaps; interesting on return to action, especially if the market speaks positively.
