Form & Verdict

Won twice at Newcastle (2m, Tapeta) in the autumn of 2021, but missed the whole of last year; no show in his first two starts over 1m4f after returning in March, but much better when second of seven in returning blinkers here (1m6f) 13 days ago; 5lb below his last winning mark and a major player if taking another step forward.

Had form figures of 213511 in May-September last year but he ended 2023 with a major blip at Newcastle; was reported to have had blood in his windpipe after that race but he now returns after 204 days off and doesn't have a great record when fresh; others preferred.

Five wins on the AW including one here (1m6f); stays at least this far but, despite finishing there or thereabouts lately, his losing run is now up to 23; cheekpieces now given a go, but another placing may be his best hope.

Off the mark with a narrow success in a slowly run contest at Lingfield (2m, Polytrack) in March and ran with credit next time but, having attempted to make just about all, her stamina looked to be stretched when seventh of 11 over C&D last time; cheekpieces given a go, but others make greater appeal.

Appeared to leave her previous efforts behind when second of seven in a Leicester seller (1m4f, soft; 40-1) 12 days ago; finished clear of the third there, but that form has a very shaky look to it and she still has plenty to prove, not least stamina.

Seemed to raise her game with 40-1 second in a C&D seller (soft) last month but she was very laboured when switched to a handicap at Wolverhampton (2m, AW) last time; takes a big drop back in trip but she's now 0-8 and others are more convincing.

Made a winning return over hurdles in February and his third of eight from 6lb higher here (1m6f) the following month was a good effort, but his three efforts since (including one back over hurdles) leave plenty to be desired; takes a big drop in class, but still best watched.

His AW wins were all in 2017; won twice over hurdles in 2023 and penultimate start (Wolverhampton 2m) showed all is not lost on AW, but he ran poorly (14-1; made most) with blinkers reinstated over C&D one week ago behind two of today's rivals; others look a bit more solid.
