Form & Verdict

Four starts and he has not lived up to the form he showed first time, one year ago; poor last of ten on handicap/AW debut when upped to 1m at Kempton ten days ago, which sees him over 1m2f (could help) in blinkers today.

All three starts over 7f; disappointed on his second outing last summer having finished within 4l of Chaldean on his Newbury debut, but having been off for 11 months he ran with credit when fifth of ten at Salisbury 15 days ago; up a furlong for this handicap/AW debut and is bred to be better than he has shown; respected.

Stablemate of Lion Tamer; absent since a disappointing at Sandown last July; promising fifth in above-average race (won by Chaldean) at Newbury earlier that month and looks interesting on that debut form; market support should be heeded.

Form & Verdict

Placed in a novice at Newmarket (1m, good) as 2yo and maiden at Doncaster (1m2f, heavy) on reappearance; favourite for handicap debut at Redcar (1m2f, good to soft) but hung left from over 2f out and dropped away tamely; gelded later in May and off since; prior to that last run he'd looked promising.

Showed promise over 7f when fourth in her first two starts, especially on reappearance at Yarmouth (good) but she took a step backwards at Windsor (1m, good to firm) later in May; makes her handicap debut over a new trip that could suit but she does need to show something new.

Formerly with William Jarvis and she was having her first run for this yard (same ownership) when a disappointing favourite in Kotari's recent race at Windsor (1m2f, good); she's not easily trusted after that effort but returning to softer ground won't hinder her; respected.

Carries his head high but showed significant ability on all three starts, best form when never-nearer fourth of 12 in maiden at Chepstow (1m2f, good to firm) on second occasion; needs better on this handicap debut but early days and he could have more to give.

Off the mark (sixth attempt) when scoring in first-time cheekpieces at Sandown (1m2f, soft) in September but he hasn't gone on from that in two subsequent runs; beaten less than 2l at Windsor in October but he didn't look entirely straightforward and needs to find more on this step back up in trip; wore visor last time and blinkers are now tried.

First-time cheekpieces helped when he came right away with a subsequent winner off a 4lb lower mark at Sandown (1m2f, soft) last month; didn't look to see out 1m6f under a penalty next time and should do better switched to a visor.

Blinkered for both AW runs in February when winning a 1m4f novice but pulled up after hanging and losing his action on handicap debut at Southwell; off 108 days before keeping on steadily when a good, never-nearer third of nine over C&D (good) three weeks ago but he kept on hanging to his right; cheekpieces (tried once as 2yo, runner-up) return; not straightforward.

Changed hands after winning Flat seller for William Haggas last summer (1m3f, soft; RPR 79); just a respectable fourth in uncompetitive Plumpton maiden (2m, good) on last month's stable/hurdle debut and needs that outing to have brought him on significantly.

Not exactly Mr Consistent on the Flat for William Haggas but he won twice, including his final start in a soft-ground 1m3f seller at Goodwood last August; handles these drier conditions and has joined a good yard to go hurdling.
