Form & Verdict

Made it sixth-time lucky in a similar contest over C&D in March (form worked out well) and has gone down by less than a length in two of his three starts since (good to soft ground a possible excuse in the other); much respected back in a 0-55.

Has shown improvement since stepped up to 7f and handicapping with cheekpieces applied, finishing fourth of 12 at Kempton (7f, Polytrack) and fifth of eight here (7f), albeit she finished behind Moondial both times; blinkers now given a go, but not sure to be suited by the longer trip and drawn wider than ideal.

Ran his best race so far on his second start for the yard when third of 11 at Nottingham (1m2f, soft) last time, appearing to appreciate the stiffer test; the runner-up has won since and he races off the same mark, but not sure the drop in trip is in his favour and the outside stall not ideal either.
