Sole success came on his return from six months off at Newbury (1m, good) last summer, but finished well behind two of these on his return from a similar absence over this C&D (good to soft) last month; more needed.

Two C&D wins (firm) this summer under different tactics and then delivered a career best when runner-up at Windsor (1m Class 5, good); conditions were perhaps on the slow side for him behind Ciotog here recently; respected.

Form & Verdict

Stands his racing really well and as good as ever when winning an apprentice handicap in good style under Olivia Tubb at Newbury (1m, good) a week ago; avoids a penalty for that (3lb well in), but quick ground would be a worry (well held in both starts on good to firm).

Form & Verdict

Returned to winning form over C&D (good to soft) last month and just lost out to Eye Of The Water back here (good to soft) ten days later, where he did a 'Chindit' by trying to bite his rival; may have found the race coming too soon at Lingfield three days later, but quick ground here would be a concern having been well beaten in both starts on good ground or faster.

J: Shariq Mohd

In good form last spring, including when beaten a short-head in the corresponding event 12 months ago; back to form with a C&D win (good) nine days ago, setting a strong pace but having his rivals out of their comfort zone and able to maintain his advantage despite running the final 2f in a funereal 28.22s; 5lb rise fair enough but he had a hard race there and could prove vulnerable turned out quickly.

Out of the frame in all six starts since joining this yard, albeit he was only beaten just over 2l when fifth of 11 here (1m2f, good) nine days ago; sole win came over this trip in a Southwell maiden (Tapeta), but he may need further than this now.

Proved his stamina when edging out Havana Goldrush over C&D (good to soft) this month, despite his rival trying to bite him, and ran well when third of 11 at Chepstow (1m, good to soft) ten days ago; best form has come on good and softer ground, but he has made the frame three times on good to firm so can't be written off.
