Form & Verdict

Very well handicapped on his 2021 form for Karl Burke (on various ground) and close fourth on his stable/seasonal debut at Ayr (6f, good) in May; wears first-time cheekpieces and, with his new trainer enjoying a fine season, he may be able to build on that latest performance; on the shortlist.

Flying high in the autumn and impressed in the way he overcame trouble in running to win the Ayr Gold Cup (6f, good to soft; effective on good); used to be versatile trip-wise but today will test that theory as he runs only intermittently at 5f now and is up against talented 5f specialists.

Always was high class but on the back burner in 2022 and it wasn't until last autumn that he was back to full strength for new yard, dashing home after meeting trouble in running to win the Ayr Gold Cup (6f, good to soft; effective on good) then runner-up to an exceptional rival at York (6f, soft) in October; back up 2lb but has C&D form and lack of a recent run is not necessarily a problem; hard to rule out.

Form & Verdict

Struggled in Bahrain during the winter but dropped down the weights and, having been gelded, he returned with a fairly promising fourth in a first-time visor (retained) at Wolverhampton (6f, AW) last month; may be able to build on that latest run and he could be involved.

Useful 2yo; struggled at three and he couldn't make much of an impact in Bahrain earlier in the year but he's run well in both starts since returning to Britain (in a new visor), notably when missing out narrowly at Haydock two weeks ago (6f, good); raced away from the well-handicapped winner on that occasion and drew 5l clear of the third (who has run well since; fifth also won next time); up 4lb but that looks lenient; strong claims.

Over two years since his only win but he has run with credit in defeat this season, bumping into a couple of well-handicapped sorts at Haydock 11 days ago (6f, good; tongue-tied first time); 2lb lower today and shouldn't be underestimated.
