Form & Verdict

Made a winning seasonal return at Ripon this month (1m2f, good to firm) and ran at least as well when keeping on for fourth at Beverley 13 days ago on his first run at this trip (came from further back than ideal); should be more to come and he's a strong candidate.

Won on fast ground at Ripon (1m2f) and Lingfield (11.6f) in June and he ran into a major improver when fourth in a Class 2 event at Beverley last time; probably still has some margin for error off this mark but he's not ruled out on this drop back in grade.

Two wins over this sort of trip when trained in France; down the field in two 1m2f runs for new yard but this is a drop in class and interesting to see if there is any market support for him back up in distance.

Back to the same mark as when beating a well-handicapped opponent at Newbury last summer (1m4f, good); struggled in a hurdle and two handicaps back on the Flat for current stable, including Sandown last week, but this is a drop in class; could revive.

Sole win (16 races) in August 2022; has edged down the weights and has career-low mark, with penultimate start (June) in particular showing that significant ability remains, but his record beyond 1m4f is a concern.

Consistency hasn't been his strong suit but he showed what he could do at Brighton last month when running on strongly to win a 1m4f handicap (good to firm) off a 4lb lower mark; not quite so good at Goodwood two weeks ago; others appeal more.

Still to add to his debut success and the handicapper has been firmly in command this season; he has looked ready for a crack at this trip though and he's not ruled out now down in class.

0-13 since his successful racecourse debut and although he ran well when fourth of ten on stable debut here (1m) in December, he has failed to beat a rival in both starts since; plenty to prove.
