Form & Verdict

Made all for Keith Dalgleish at Hamilton (8.3f, good) just over a year ago but signed off for that stable with below-par AW run in the autumn and today's stable debut comes after an eight-month break; unraced on ground quicker than good; had wind surgery in November.

Form & Verdict

Raced mainly over further but coped with drop back to 8.5f and arguably ran better than finishing position suggests when fifth in first-time blinkers at Beverley (good to soft) three weeks ago; should be fine on today's faster ground and is another 2lb lower now; one to consider.

In good form on AW this spring, most notably when clearcut winner at Newcastle (1m) four weeks ago; untested on turf quicker than good but is probably still on a workable mark; respected.

T: Linda Perratt

Gained four of his ten wins over C&D; caused 50-1 shock at Newcastle (1m, AW) in March and made the frame there off today's mark a few days later but is very unreliable nowadays and needs to bounce back quickly from a heavy defeat on Friday.

Will cope with today's fast ground and has become very well handicapped on some of last year's form for Gemma Tutty but hasn't fired on any of four starts for current stable; blinkers discarded after one use; revival needed.

Without a win since June 2021 and generally very disappointing since switching to current stable in October but some positives can be drawn from his recent run at Ayr and he's very well suited by this C&D; no forlorn hope in refitted cheekpieces.

Unplaced all nine starts in Ireland and not seen since some very underwhelming Polytrack runs in early part of this year; new trainer has done well with new recruits before but this filly could be considered only if lively in the betting.

All four wins have come over 1m2f/1m4f around here, the latest from 2lb lower in November; finished behind three of these when fourth of nine over C&D in January, but appeared to be undone by a lack of pace there; capable of playing a part if this pans out more in her favour back from a 51-day break.

Form & Verdict

Without a win since 2021 and was out of form on AW/over hurdles for Iain Jardine during the winter; may revive for new yard at some stage but makes stable debut after four-month break and may find 1m on fast ground a bit sharp.
