Something seemed amiss last August on final 4yo run and, following wind surgery, well beaten on all three runs this season; 2lb lower than when winning this race last year, so he's on a good mark if back to his best.

Quick double in 1m2f handicaps on good to firm last summer, latterly at this track; made all that day and did so again when he hit new heights to score comfortably at Windsor (1m2f, good to firm) 11 days ago; has 5lb penalty today but due to go up an additional 2lb; needs plenty of respect but this company is more demanding.

Dual C&D winner in 2021, latterly in this race, and his best run last year was also over C&D; so nearly got back on the scoresheet at Newbury four weeks ago, which sees him go back up 5lb today but it looks like he will be seriously involved.

His only appearance at Sandown resulted in an authoritative 1m2f win on good to firm last August in an amateurs' race; scored at the first attempt this season, at Windsor, and he's one to consider despite a lesser show from wide draw behind Sweet Reward at Newbury four weeks ago.

Better than ever for a C&D win (good to firm) in May, coming from the back; however, well below form at Sandown on both starts since, where she previously had a good record; won her only start on soft (2021) but remote on heavy last October; wore cheekpieces on six of last seven starts, now tries blinkers; a few doubts.

Form & Verdict

Showed promise on good to firm last spring; won novice at Lingfield (AW) on stable debut in December after wind surgery; runner-up in his first three handicaps and ran respectably at York latest; last three runs were 1m4f but this rather free-going sort may be suited by today's return to 1m2f.

Just one win from his 13 starts but he was a good second at Newmarket (1m4f, good to firm) last September on his penultimate outing for the now-retired William Jarvis; heavy ground excuses his subsequent run; new trainer is among the winners; one of two for the yard and he could be a player.

Standout run for current yard (is ex-Gosden) when going down by a neck over C&D in April; is hard to fancy on what we've seen of late even allowing for 1m2f stretching him the last twice; cheekpieces removed.
