C&D winner (good; 4lb higher today) in June; not so hot back here on good to firm next time, albeit in a better race, and although he wasn't beaten far at Chelmsford (AW) on latest start, that was in only seventh of 11; faces fewer rivals this time but not top of the list.

J: Neil Callan

T: James Tate

Ten races and usually seriously involved, this season's exception on soft ground; best efforts came in 1m2f handicaps on good ground under Neil Callan at Newmarket on last two starts, the latter a C&D win since which the second and fourth have both won; not harshly treated with 4lb rise.

Form & Verdict

Better than bare result (met traffic issues) at Doncaster last month when bidding for a 1m Class 6 hat-trick, following wins at Wetherby and Southwell (AW); something to prove upped in distance/grade, however.

Won five times on the Flat from 1m-1m2f for Ian Williams last year; has taken time to click as a hurdler, but off the mark in a modest race at Haydock last time (1m7f, soft); not badly treated on handicap debut and could well play a part.

Useful Flat form before changing hands for 100,000gns; has shaped with a nice bit of promise in both his runs over hurdles, especially as soft ground would not have been absolutely ideal for him; strong contender even on soft and yet conditions could dry out.

Has form figures of 133 (all over 1m) for new yard this year, winning AW maiden then running well in turf handicaps, latest at Sandown where he shaped as if ready for a crack at this longer distance; solid chance.

Form & Verdict

Eyecatching second in maiden on the other course here (strong form) on seasonal debut, then went one better at Goodwood (again over 1m; good to firm) two weeks ago; well treated on the reappearance effort and should improve further; gives the impression she'll be suited by this extra 2f; much respected handicap debutante.
