Form & Verdict

Prominent racer; ran by far the best race of his career here (1m maiden, soft; third of ten, 40-1) last September; low-key since, failing to beat a rival on handicap debut at Redcar (1m2f; dropped out tamely on first start since wind surgery and a gelding operation); risky proposition.

Took a major step forward from his reappearance when getting off the mark in 1m2f Haydock handicap (good to firm) in June; pulled up at Ripon 13 days later (reportedly struck into) and given seven weeks to recover; the Haydock form is nothing special but he's unexposed and from a good yard.

Form & Verdict

Contested some good quality juvenile races, notably when finishing runner-up to the subsequent Greenham Stakes winner (and French 2,000 Guineas second) Isaac Shelby on debut in a Newbury maiden (6.5f, good to soft); fitness and stamina are taken on trust on handicap/seasonal debut.

J: Tom Marquand

T: Richard Spencer

Wore cheekpieces on last five outings, including wins at Windsor (1m, good to firm) on first occasion and Wolverhampton (8.6f, AW) on reappearance last month; asserted in good style when favourite in the latter, so is one to consider, but he's 8lb higher today which demands further improvement.

9st 5lb

J: Oisin Murphy

T: Richard Spencer

Did well in competitive Racing League handicaps around 1m at the end of last summer, including a win at Windsor; wasn't at his best in final two runs last season but he's been gelded since and he's now only 1lb higher than for his win; went close on his seasonal return last year and he needs watching in market after six months off.

Form & Verdict

Failed to win, but broadly consistent on AW at Chelmsford, Kempton, and Wolverhampton (7f-1m2f); off the track since finishing runner-up in a first-time visor at Chelmsford (1m2f, Class 4; 9-2) in March, and gelded in the interim; set to make just his second appearance on turf.

Form & Verdict

Bred to stay well (dam a 1m6f winner) and, without necessarily appearing entirely straightforward, has been placed on all four starts; didn't demonstrate improvement for a gelding operation when runner-up in a Ripon maiden (1m4f, soft); drops back to 1m2f, but still a key player on handicap debut.
