Form & Verdict

Seven wins in all but only one in his last 38 appearances; however, he's run well in both starts since fitted with cheekpieces and Windsor's race on Monday did not go to plan, having had to make up late ground off a steady pace; considered.

Handicapped to win races and wasn't overly troubled to prevail narrowly at Chelmsford a month ago (1m2f, AW; 2lb lower); not had many chances on turf but he showed plenty of early promise on good/faster ground.

Ran okay on the AW earlier this year but rather subdued returned to the Flat on his final two runs and soft ground was no real excuse; bit to prove, but has dropped to a dangerous mark and he's accustomed to stronger races than this.

Off the mark at eighth attempt when coming with a strong late run at Lingfield (1m2f, AW) in June; backed that up with seconds at Windsor (1m2f) and Epsom (1m4f, again good to firm); unraced on softer than good; on the premises if she goes on the ground and takes to first-time headgear.
