Form & Verdict

All six career wins gained over 1m4f on Polytrack; creditable third of 12 (over 1l behind La Belle Vie) over C&D latest given the worst of the draw, but that did take his record off official marks in the 60s to 0-8.

Only two previous assignments on synthetics were 0-75 and 0-105 handicaps, so this is plainly easier; still operating well below a winning level on turf of late despite a tumbling mark, however.

T: Simon Pearce

Flat winner on very soft in France; out of sorts in early starts for this yard but in good form on the AW since wind surgery and was a ready 2m winner at Newcastle in March; a muddling pace wasn't ideal at Kempton since but he should be a major contender back on turf.

Justified favouritism in Class 6 event at Newcastle (2m; solid form for the grade) this month, belatedly adding to his 2021 French win; ties in with Two Past Eight on C&D running in February (looked a shade unlucky); one for the shortlist.

Caught out of his ground when 5l fifth in a slowly run Chelmsford affair latest (1m6f), though that still represented a return to his previous best form level; didn't see out an extended 2m the time before, but further 3lb ease not unwelcome; cheekpieces replace blinkers.
