Impressed in novice events (1m/1m2f, AW/good) on first two starts and bounced back from two disappointing runs (1m2f, soft/good to firm) when easily making all at Newcastle (1m2f, AW) a fortnight ago; capitalised on an easy lead last time but this very lightly raced 4yo could have more to offer now things have clicked again, and he's ahead of the handicapper under a 5lb penalty.

Won here (12.4f) last June and went close the next twice, here (12.4f) and at York (1m4f); he's well treated on that form but hasn't been at the top of his game on either start this season and needs to get back on track.

Peak efforts this term have been at around 1m4f, including Ripon win in July and fourth at the York Ebor meeting, but he won over 1m6f in 2021; shaped okay in the 1m6f Old Borough Cup at Haydock last time considering the trouble in running over 2f out; major player.

6yo who is lightly raced for his age and won at Ripon (1m4f, soft) in July; his recent fourth at York (1m4f, good to firm) can perhaps be upgraded as he raced prominently in a race that appeared to suit those ridden more patiently; won over 1m6f last year and could be in the shake-up.

Form & Verdict

Tends to be slowly away, which was costly at Newmarket last October when last seen; however, this lightly raced 4yo has shown considerable promise (including here) and her fine pedigree suggests she could have more to offer for her top trainer if able to break more alertly.
