Won four in a row over 1m this spring (soft/heavy) and landed the five-timer at Chester (10.3f, good to soft) nine days ago; unraced on good/good to firm; had just over 2l to spare last time and could still be ahead of the handicapper, now 6lb higher.

Completed a remarkable six-timer in 1m/1m2f handicaps (heavy-good to soft) this year but her winning run came to a grinding halt when stepped up to Listed level at York (extended 1m2f, good to soft) in July; freshened up since and no surprise were she to resume her progression this autumn.

Won at Newmarket (1m1f, soft) last October on final 2yo outing and hasn't run badly on his two starts this year (1m2f, good to soft/soft); might not be far away but needs something extra if he's to win this.

Down the field at Haydock in May last time out but that was his first encounter with fast ground; progressive previously and was winning for the fourth time this year at Musselburgh (1m, good to soft) two starts ago; this 3yo retains potential now back on easier ground and he's a possible player.

9yo who was well beaten on his final run last year and same story on comeback at Royal Ascot; however, that was a tough reappearance assignment and he's well treated on last season's best form; this race two years ago is one of seven course victories and he's capable of having a big say.

Form & Verdict

Made it two wins from last four starts when scoring by 2l at Haydock (1m, good) a fortnight ago and he's fine on slow ground; not ruled out but turf form has been in and out this year and he has a good record at Haydock.

Ran just three times last year and wasn't at his best, but off his reduced mark he returned to form when close on recent reappearance at Limerick (7f, yielding); he's fine at 1m and this Irish raider could be in the mix.
