Form & Verdict

Won at Chester (1m4f, good) and Ayr (1m5f, good) last year, but beaten a long way at York (1m6f, good to soft) on his final outing (connections suggested he was unsuited by the ground); has been gelded and undergone wind surgery in the meantime and could easily bounce back, though he may need a stiffer test than this now.

Down the field at Newbury last month but prior to that he'd returned from a long absence with a near-miss at Doncaster (1m4f, good to firm) and he's won over 1m6f in the past; not written off.

Lightly raced 4yo who won at Haydock (1m, good to firm) as a 2yo and made a winning reappearance at Newmarket (1m2f, good) last season, but after having been gelded he finished a well-beaten last of eight on his Epsom return (1m2f, soft) in April; not hard to forgive that effort on account of the ground and better expected.

Form & Verdict

Four wins over 1m4f/1m6f on good to firm ground, three of them last year, and he ended the campaign with third of 15 at Ayr (1m5f, good), finishing just over a length behind Aimeric; has a good record fresh so 258-day absence not a problem, but a suspicion that this may be an insufficient test for him now.

Won a novice here (1m2f, good) last summer and ran well to finish third in his first two handicaps (1m3f/1m4f), but out of the frame in his last three starts including both since returning in April; another 3lb drop and return of the hood not enough to tempt.

Generally progressive last term, winning three times (1m3f-1m6f, good/faster); very close third over 1m6f at Chester (good to soft) on final outing; below par at Ripon (1m4f, soft) on reappearance but record suggests she'll bounce back.
