Form & Verdict

Hooded each time in three AW starts, showing early promise at 6f on debut and having no problem with the extra furlong when runner-up to a more prominently ridden rival at Kempton in May; a step forward on the cards now handicapping with a stiffer test at the trip on turf debut.

Got away better without the hood last time but again pulled hard (behind Azahara Palace) and it's no surprise to see the headgear back; has the ability to win off this mark but is far from straightforward and will need to settle better in today's small field.

Not the first time he's been slowly away at Bath last time (1m), though the blindfold coming off late didn't help matters; all things considered, this Leicester winner ran okay to be beaten 2l and there's another race in him.

Handicap career wasn't an immediate success but was having his first run in a 7f one on turf when leading close home at Wetherby recently (good; first-time blinkers, retained today); back up 3lb and this stiff finish can suit; involved again.

Course winner at 6f in the autumn (good; has won on good to soft); also successful at 7f but a thorough test at this trip isn't necessarily what's wanted and he made no impact over slightly further at Beverley in May.

Four 7f wins on good and good to firm ground, also acts on good to soft; appreciated the return to turf when holding sway quite comfortably at Carlisle last month (refitted cheekpieces, retained today) and has solid claims back here, with a win and a second from just two C&D runs.

Looked the type to do better at some stage when runner-up on Chelmsford AW on second start and that impression still stands despite showing no further improvement on turf debut at Doncaster in May; pedigree strongly suggests progress now returned to 7f for handicap debut.
