Not been in the best of form (13l-sixth here last week) since Pontefract win in June (1m2f, good to firm); has won on soft, but ideally suited by quicker ground; others appeal more.

Dual course winner, including C&D; acts on soft; has won three times over 1m2f this season but last two efforts suggest that the handicapper has his measure at present.

Form & Verdict

Largely consistent on AW and turf; form dipped on latest outing but record suggests he's likely to bounce straight back; favourably treated, having gained both wins off higher marks.

Bettered low-key reappearance run when respectable fourth of seven at Chelmsford (1m2f) last month but has not won since summer 2022 and is seemingly on the downgrade now; others have more appealing profiles.

Form & Verdict

Record is 1-10; has failed to see out 1m4f races this season; sole success came over 1m2f (off 2lb higher) in first-time cheekpieces; interesting contender back down in trip with new headgear (blinkers) applied.

All wins on AW; in good form in January but has taken backward steps since returning from a break; turf record is far from solid; something to prove back in this sphere.

Form & Verdict

Took well to first-time cheekpieces in maiden handicap over C&D (off 5lb lower on fast ground) last month; may well build on that success, with the headgear retained; unexposed at this trip; respected.
