Form & Verdict

Best form is in the mud but he had excuses in a good-ground 6f handicap at Newmarket two starts back as he travelled on the pace in a race dominated by closers, and he was hampered; hasn't raced over 5f since his debut but he looks quick enough.

Looked an improved performer when seeing off his 11 rivals at Wolverhampton on his return to action (gelded during his absence) four weeks ago; nicely on top at the finish there and the form has been handsomely franked (second, third and sixth have all won since); 5lb higher and drawn wide but of obvious interest.

Improved with each of her four 2yos runs, culminating in a 5f AW novice win, and she reappeared with a good second in a handicap at Goodwood (5f, good to firm), where she was denied a clear run and kept on well; could continue to progress now back up in trip and she has a chance.

Form & Verdict

Has won three of his last four and dropping back to 5f is probably a good thing after the early speed he showed at Lingfield latterly (early February), where he was clear before holding on by the skin of his teeth; just as effective if ridden off the pace and he's well handicapped off just 2lb higher; returning to turf is not off-putting.

Only win in seven runs came in an ordinary Chepstow novice (6f, good to firm) last summer, his fifth start; has perhaps found the ground too soft this season but has a bit to prove on balance.

Couple of absences in recent times and has proven inconsistent since returning; the handicapper is giving her every chance, though, dropping her another 2lb as she goes in another new headgear combination.
