Saaheq

9st 4lb

J: Mia Nicholls

T: Adrian Nicholls

Won twice at Chelmsford under Mia Nicholls last year and has knocked at the door in his last two starts; favourably drawn to attack but the fear factor is that he'll find this stiff 5f just too much; realistic place prospects though.

Veteran who gained three of his 11 wins over this C&D; ended last season in poor form but made pleasing return from four-month break when third at Newcastle three weeks ago and is well drawn here.

Form & Verdict

Returned from a six-month break to get the better of Saaheq over 5f at Southwell last month (made all); good second at Yarmouth next time but he wasn't in the same form at Nottingham 12 days ago, albeit in a Class 4; dangerous if back to recent best.

He was gaining a seventh AW success when digging deep to land a 5f handicap at Southwell in February; has gone well after similar absences in the past and he can't be discounted.

Form & Verdict

Won three 7f AW handicaps when trained by Ed Dunlop, the latest of them off a 2lb lower mark last April; ran well for second off this mark at Kempton (7f) when last seen in October before changing hands for 17,000gns a fortnight later; new stable likely to find the key to him sooner rather than later but dropping to 5f asks a new question of him.

Dropped in the weights for this yard and he showed his first sign that he may be ready to capitalise when third of 13 over 7f at Kempton last week (made the running; today's accessories tried for the first time); one to consider dropped further in grade.

Ended 2022 with a C&D win, overcoming trouble in running to get up close home; low-key seasonal return at Brighton three weeks ago (6f, good to firm) and others look safer in today's field.

Made all over C&D in March and followed up over 6f at Kempton 18 days later; form dipped on turf last week but he should be seen to better effect back here.

Seven wins here (four over this trip), the latest when dead-heating in December; bounced back from a couple of lesser efforts when fourth of 12 over C&D 15 days ago with two of these behind; a similar performance would put him right in the mix.
