Not sure what happened first time out but cheekpieces went on at Newcastle (6f AW) and he got the better of yesterday's Acomb runner-up Ballymount Boy who was making his debut; nothing wrong with that form and his owner targets this meeting.

Group 2 Richmond at Glorious Goodwood (6f, soft) was not for the first time he was slow to break, but he saw that race out with a purpose to finish clear second behind Vandeek, who gave that form an almighty boost when winning last weekend's Group 1 in France; no question that he sets the standard back in this Group 3 and going up to 7f should be a good thing (has Group 1 or 2 entries from 6f to 1m); both turf starts on softer than good.

Form & Verdict

Last of three on his Nottingham debut (5f, heavy) but stepped up on that when winning at Ripon (5f, good to firm; 20-1) this month; those behind haven't really advertised the form since and he has a penalty to carry, but he is still a major player in this field with the extra furlong likely to suit.

Stepped up from his debut when winning a Ripon novice (5f, good to firm) in June, but held in all three starts since including two nurseries; didn't stay 7f last time, but even if this trip may suit him better he still needs to resume his progress; soft ground remains a question mark; stable runs four.

J: Brandon Wilkie

Won his novice over 5f and hasn't improved for 6f the last twice, latterly finishing 5l off the principals on his nursery debut at York (good to soft); getting back on fast ground may help but it's hard to call him well handicapped and 7f is a grey area.

Form & Verdict

12-1 when making just about all to win at Wolverhampton (6f, Tapeta) last month on debut, but found the demands of the Hilary Needler too much at Beverley (5f, good to firm) 19 days ago; should be much happier back at this level returned to the AW and is high on the list.

Battled gamely to win 7f events at Wolverhampton and Newcastle last winter, by a nose each time; might have needed the run first time out at Southwell last month, but of more concern is the fact that her two turf efforts so far have been well below par.
