Form & Verdict

Qualifying runs were at 7f-1m and he duly improved for stepping up to nearly this far when winning easily at Yarmouth (good to firm; first run since gelded); disappointingly unable to defy a penalty when odds-on at Lingfield (AW) on Monday but that track might not have been ideal (nor the way the race unfolded) and he came clear of the second; respected.

Two wins (11.4f/1m4f) in June from his first three handicaps and runner-up at Ffos Las (1m4f) a fortnight ago when back from a break; 3lb wrong at the weights here and further improvement is needed, but he appeared to idle in front last time and could have plenty more left in the tank.

Form & Verdict

Took a nice step forward from his debut (behind the high-class Cicero's Gift) to finish a never-dangerous third over 1m at Kempton in November; was only 100-30 for a 1m2f maiden at Chester's May meeting but he didn't appear to handle the soft ground; not really bred for quite this far but could be a sharp improver on his handicap debut.

Winning for fourth time on AW when much too good for Lexington Hero at Wolverhampton in March (1m4f, AW; received 6lb from the runner-up); has others to worry about here after two ordinary efforts on fast turf.

Rated 11lb lower than when last successful over C&D this time last year; often slowly into stride, but pretty consistent since introduced to blinkers; this probably represents a better fit than the 1m2f he tackled at Chelmsford last time.

J: Liam Keniry

T: J S Moore

C&D winner who is now 10lb lower than when last successful and has run with credit lately, but despite having been below his last winning mark for a while his losing run is up to 14; also a suspicion that he needs a stiffer test than this these days.

Form & Verdict

Absent since proving no match for Mirabello Bay over this new trip at Wolverhampton in mid-March but he has a 5lb pull with the winner and that should make it interesting, provided he's as effective on grass.

Never that threatening in three runs as 2yo (7f-1m2f) and the same again in a decent small-field novice (1m4f) on his reappearance at Wolverhampton, having been gelded; more needed if he's to defy this sort of mark but it's still early days.

0-6 since his debut win (7f, good); easily the best of four runs in handicaps was his second on soft ground at Windsor (1m3f) and cheekpieces are now turned to after finishing well held over this far at Salisbury; not overly convincing.
