Front-runner who made it 4-4 in handicaps when beating some of these at Newmarket (6f, good; has also won on good to firm) last month; appeared to have more in hand last time than the 1l margin suggests and today's 5lb higher mark may not stop this highly progressive sort.

Remarkable improver this term, mostly over 6f; came up slightly short in the Shergar Cup Sprint here but quickly regained the winning thread in C&D event (good to firm; made all to beat Popmaster) four weeks ago; now 7-8 in handicaps and may not have finished progressing yet; shortlisted.

Form & Verdict

Went very close in C&D sales race at last year's Ebor meeting and has shown solid handicap form the last twice, most recently runner-up at Newmarket (6f) when splitting Quinault and Eminency; off 1lb higher he's 4lb better off with the (admittedly ready) winner and he might not be far away.

Tailed off in Group 2 at Haydock three weeks ago and something to prove after that; however, he may have needed that comeback run and in today's context his 2yo form reads extremely well, especially his fourth here in the Group 3 Acomb behind 2,000 Guineas winner Chaldean, when not seeing out 7f.

Off the mark at the 25th attempt (fifth for this yard) when landing a 7f handicap at Wolverhampton in February; three solid efforts have followed, most recently a third of nine in a Class 5 at Windsor ten days ago; should go well back down in class.

Form & Verdict

Progressive in these cheekpieces, winning Newcastle novice (6f, AW) before a near-miss in a Pontefract handicap (6f, good) then a win in a Hamilton handicap (6f, good to soft); had just a neck to spare last time and is up 6lb but the first two were clear and he could have more left in the tank.
