Form & Verdict

He's without a win since summer 2021 but has edged down the weights and reappeared with a solid third at Redcar (1m, soft) in April; this course winner is versatile ground-wise and could be in the mix off his static mark.

Major improvement on AW since joining this yard and has shown promise on turf in the past; however, he hasn't been at the top of his game back on grass the last twice and has something to prove today.

Form & Verdict

His last four wins have come over 1m on fast ground and he can be forgiven his below-par reappearance over 1m2f on soft ground at Windsor; however, he's inconsistent and would be of greater interest at Windsor, with four of his five wins having come there.

Made it two wins from five starts for this yard when making all with something to spare at Yarmouth (1m, good) last month; a 5lb rise isn't harsh, including in view of his old form (course winner), and he's on the shortlist.

Form & Verdict

Two wins in these cheekpieces at Wolverhampton (8.6f/9.4f, AW) earlier this year; there's a doubt about whether he'll be able to transfer that form back to turf (he's 0-7 on grass) but he's not ruled out.
