Form & Verdict

Had a dreadful start to this season but, with cheekpieces enlisted, he surged back to form and delivered his best yet when winning an eight-runner handicap at Wetherby (upped to 1m2f, good to firm) one month ago; best 2yo RPR was on soft; up 5lb but the extra distance looked a big help last time and he has more to offer at 1m2f+.

Three from three (on turf) since upped to 1m2f and fitted with cheekpieces, scoring under William Buick at Newmarket most recently; open to further progress over middle distances; major player provided he's as effective back on AW and with headgear removed.

Form & Verdict

Minor honours in his first three handicaps, on soft ground first occasion, before easily winning one at Salisbury (1m4f, good to firm) 18 days ago; had just two rivals to beat that day (made all) but seems to have been making steady improvement; could still be on a good mark (up 5lb) but going down in trip asks a question.

Successful twice during a consistent 2023 campaign in Class 6 and Class 5; form dipped sharply in Class 4 event at Newbury on reappearance; perhaps needed the run but he has something to prove upped further in grade.

Form & Verdict

Only just failed to overhaul the front-running winner at Redcar (7f, good to soft) on second start; 5-4 favourite but similar form when close third of seven in maiden at Beverley (7.4f, good to firm) five weeks ago; needs improvement for this handicap debut and the sire provides plenty of encouragement for this longer trip.

J: Daniel Tudhope

Displayed promise last March-July for Harry Eustace and sold for 5,000gns last October; this lightly raced 4yo reportedly lost his action on last month's reappearance at Newcastle (eased) and isn't written off, but he has something to prove regarding his current form.

Form & Verdict

Debut win on AW; has run close to that form only once (final 2yo start) in four turf races since and has major questions to answer after her two handicaps (1m2f/1m) this term; hood is enlisted; unraced on softer than good.

Form & Verdict

Won handicap debut at Kempton (1m, AW) in March; had wind surgery after that and gelded after next start, before his fair, front-running fifth of seven at Doncaster (1m, good to firm); needs to build on that and 1m2f is not sure to suit; blinkered last three starts, now switches to a visor.

Form & Verdict

All three races at 1m; close third on Southwell AW on second start but the cupboard was bare from 3f out back at Newmarket (good) in May; not a guaranteed stayer on pedigree now upped in trip but should have a more realistic chance now handicapping.

Has shown fair form on a couple of occasions (including sole AW start) but his other runs have been poor, dropping away very tamely at Pontefract 12 weeks ago; first-time blinkers replace visor.

Two efforts have been a great deal better than the other three; one of those good runs came last time when fourth of ten from off the pace in handicap at Windsor (1m2f, good; unraced on softer) in a first-time visor, which is retained; on that form, this is a golden opportunity.
