Form & Verdict

Seemingly expected to leave 2yo maiden/novice form behind, following gelding operation, on handicap debut/return at Windsor (11.4f) but ran in snatches and disappointed (beaten 8l at evens); blinkers could sharpen, this is easier and has been dropped 2lb.

Short price for his handicap debut/comeback, having been gelded, but ran in snatches on soft going; got it together last Wednesday though, on to better ground in blinkers, and is the one to beat under a penalty.

Held back by inexperience in three runs as a 2yo but he's been gelded over the winter and this well-related 200,000gns yearling could take a big step forward now his stamina is being tested; interesting.

Well backed runner-up both handicap starts this year, finding just a Sir Mark Prescott improver too strong at Newcastle last week; he travelled best there so returning to a bit shorter may help, as may fitting of a visor; big player off same mark.

Well held in maiden/novice company last year (7f/1m); definite hope for this longer trip on breeding and he wouldn't be the first from this yard to really step forward once handicapping.

Solid record on this track for new yard, winning two from five starts (at 1m6f and 2m) and going down only narrowly to one who is unexposed as a stayer last time out; looks good for another big run.

Favourite when starting out for Charles Hills (ex Seamus Durack), following gelding operation, at Salisbury 13 days ago and, while he could manage only fifth, he did best of those held up and should appreciate this extra yardage; of major interest.

Well-backed favourite when a fair fifth in a Salisbury handicap (1m2f, good to soft) on his stable debut in May but he hung badly left throughout when tailed off at Bath last time; that took his record to 0-7 and has plenty to prove again after that; tongue-tie back on.
