Form & Verdict

Back in better form at Catterick (finished third) and Ripon (runner-up) this month; remains on a workable mark and this return to Pontefract looks a plus (2-3 here); looks poised to regain the winning thread.

Form & Verdict

Ex-Irish 4yo; has form figures of 0005 for current yard, showing clear signs of a revival at Newcastle (5f, AW; seasonal debut) most recently; possibilities off a handy mark, provided he builds on that effort.

Ex-Ger Lyons; winner of a four-runner maiden on Dundalk AW in 2021; rather disappointing for present stable recently but is now well handicapped; blinkers replace cheekpieces; needs to bounce back.

Losing spell goes back to 2021 and lacks recent match practice; however, placed a few times for new stable last season and holds each-way claims if running to that form on reappearance.

Form & Verdict

His done his winning on AW; far from consistent on turf this spring, clear best effort when second at Ayr three runs ago; not solid but has a fighting chance if he takes well to first-time headgear.
