Prolific for Grant Tuer and he made a good start for this yard when a close fourth in a Racing League handicap last September off an 8lb higher mark; off the boil more recently but needs a close market check.

Had been racing over 7f+ for the last year, winning first two starts for this yard here in September (good/good to soft) but he didn't seem at all inconvenienced by the drop to 5f at Musselburgh recently where his close second was useful form; can give it another good shot back at 6f.

High-class 3yo form at both sprint trips for Karl Burke, notably when winning valuable 5f handicaps at Ascot (heavy and good), but didn't go on; sold for 50,000gns in the autumn; now 16lb lower than reappearance last spring and is one to be interested in.

Flying high in the autumn and impressed in the way he overcame trouble in running to win the Ayr Gold Cup (6f, good to soft; effective on good); used to be versatile trip-wise but today will test that theory as he runs only intermittently at 5f now and is up against talented 5f specialists.

Always was high class but on the back burner in 2022 and it wasn't until last autumn that he was back to full strength for new yard, dashing home after meeting trouble in running to win the Ayr Gold Cup (6f, good to soft; effective on good) then runner-up to an exceptional rival at York (6f, soft) in October; back up 2lb but has C&D form and lack of a recent run is not necessarily a problem; hard to rule out.

Form & Verdict

Very capable at 6f and only just lost out in the Silver Cup here in 2021; hadn't been seen in a 6f turf handicap in Britain since until meeting trouble time and again at York on Wednesday (good); should take advantage of a good mark before long.

He boasts a high level of form on AW, running to an RPR of 105 or more in ten of his 20 AW starts; has left the impression most of his ability is intact on turf this summer and although he has a higher mark in this sphere, he's still a contender of some interest.

Sole win in 16 starts came at Catterick (6f, good to firm; first-time cheekpieces) in July last year; 2lb lower than when beaten a nose at Newcastle (6f, Tapeta) a year ago, but well held the last twice which raises doubts despite the drop in grade.

Form & Verdict

Many smart efforts in handicaps, including when runner-up in the Silver Cup over C&D in September (good), but was winning for the first time in Britain since 2018 when drawing clear on recent return at Doncaster (6f); back up 5lb and that soft ground probably was a help.

Winning return at Doncaster in 2023 and he so nearly repeated the trick there in March (both 6f on soft); however, he's not been the easiest to place over the years and this looks a tall order.
