Impressive at Haydock (5f, good to firm) in May but hasn't repeated the form, fifth of 13 in a Racing League event at Newcastle nine days ago; a few others appeal more.

Scored three times in 2022; consistent in defeat this term, most recently fourth at Beverley; getting little help from the assessor but solid on recent evidence and again has frame possibilities.

Catch Cunningham

J: Tom Eaves

T: Michael Herrington

Capable for Kevin Ryan; struggled to recapture peak form last year and moved on for 7,000gns; placed on stable debut at Wolverhampton (5f) in January, but failed to build on that positive showing at Southwell; well drawn so can't be discounted from an easing mark.

J: Tom Eaves

T: Michael Herrington

On a long losing run but he's slipped in the weights and made a pleasing start for his new connections when third of ten at Wolverhampton last month; hit with a 2lb rise but the form looks solid and getting back on a straight track won't hurt; one to consider.
