Form & Verdict

100-1 and 150-1 (twice) for first three starts; bred to be a sprinter but the most solid indications of ability came on latest outing when making late gains over 1m2f at Leicester (soft); while having a stiff task on that bare form, he may bring some potential to this handicap debut over 1m4f.

Closed out last season with an improved effort on heavy ground and he's done well in soft-ground handicaps at Windsor (1m2f and 11.4f) this season, getting off the mark on latest; back up 2lb, which might have been worse but the ground conditions are likely to be different.

J: Elisha Whittington

T: Richard Hawker

Won over 1m2f in France last May (good to soft) but she has a mixed record since and has failed to beat a rival in two for new yard this season; overall record now stands at 1-33 and others are more convincing.

Form & Verdict

1m2f on heavy when he won the first of two starts for Andre Fabre in June 2021; has done little in five British outings, tried in cheekpieces on latest, but at least he is way down the weights.

Largely consistent record over this C&D, winning for the second time this AW season when seeing off seven rivals 12 days ago; should remain competitive after only a 2lb nudge.
