Still seeking a first career win (0-19) and there were precious few positive signals at Ayr (6f, Class 6, good; 15-2; last of 12); 3lb lower, but far safer to look elsewhere.

Lightly raced; posted his two best efforts (on RPR's) since being gelded, justifying favouritism to score narrowly at Chelmsford (5f, Class 6) four weeks ago; no issues with 6f, so interesting to see how he fares returning to turf from a 3lb higher mark; chance.

Struggling to recapture peak form (is a C&D winner), and reportedly made a respiratory noise when a beaten favourite at Haydock (6f, good) six weeks ago; looks nicely weighted though from 11lb below his last winning mark if a second bout of wind surgery has worked; one to consider.

Without a win since 2022; three runs this year, best of those when 22-1 fourth of 11 to Bonito Cavalo here on Friday on her drop back to 6f; needs to build on that but this will be her first attempt at 5f and she's not the percentage call.
