Form & Verdict

Second in 7f contests at Doncaster and Newbury before readily getting off the mark at Salisbury (7f, good to firm) 18 days ago; this strong traveller appeals as the type to go on to even better things in handicaps; nicely drawn towards the inner.

Looks a winner waiting to happen, having finished second in 7f contests at Doncaster (went down narrowly) and Newbury (beaten favourite but pulled well clear of the third) on soft/good; hood worn both times is now removed; remains open to progress and warrants respect.

Form & Verdict

Has improved since being gelded, emphatically winning fast-ground handicaps at York (7f) and Nottingham (extended 1m) at the start of the summer; it was always going to be a tough ask trying to lead all the way in the Britannia at Royal Ascot last week and he should fare better here if he can get across from the outside stall.

Lost his first seven races but he's 2-3 since gelded and won his last two emphatically (7f/8.3f; good to firm; effective on soft); latest was under Alec Voikhansky; those were Class 4 races, so this represents a severe rise in class, and he was hurled up 12lb since latest.

Form & Verdict

Made it third time lucky when easy winner of 7f Catterick novice (heavy) on reappearance; some free-going tendencies seemed to blunt his finishing effort when fourth in 7f Newmarket handicap (soft) in May but he went for a long way like one on a good mark; this sharper test should suit back from eight weeks off; looks capable of better.
