Form & Verdict

0-13 for current stable but went very close over the extended 7f here (good; 0-55) nine days ago, keeping on; should cope with the drop back in distance, having done his winning at 6f, and has clear possibilities off same mark (likely to go back up in the weights once reassessed).

Usually on the premises on turf from this June onwards and now he's won at this track twice (7f/6f) already in November; drawn wider this time but he's on a roll and well treated judged on latest form.

Two good runs over 6f last month, one of them here, and he showed 7f was no problem with a game win here last week; 5lb penalty for that narrow victory might find him out.

Just got up to break his duck on the AW at the 16th attempt over C&D last month (form worked out well) and ran just as well when second of ten (clear of the third) at Southwell (1m, Tapeta) six days ago; major chance from the same mark.

Form & Verdict

Completed a quickfire double (off this mark; soft/good) in August 2021; has failed to score since but ran well (close third) at Chepstow most recently and looks set for another good effort; form figures at Ffos Las read 122, including short-head second in this race last year.

Placed at Kempton (6f, AW) on seasonal debut the posted a lesser effort on Brighton; effective on turf in previous seasons and he's now 5lb below last winning mark, so holds good claims if bouncing back.

Over two years since his last win but he's been doing his best to end the drought of late, finishing in the first four on his last six starts; not beaten far into third at Wolverhampton on Monday; new cheekpieces might help and this is weaker than anything he's contested before; leading contender.
