Form & Verdict

Improved for a step up in trip over the winter, reeling off a four-timer over the extended 1m1f at Wolverhampton in January/February; came up short off a BHA mark in the 90s on his next three starts but he was back on track with a game effort over 1m here 17 days ago (front two clear); the combination of a 4lb rise and a drop in trip could find him out today.

He's on a competitive mark on this year's peak AW form but he hasn't been at his best in that sphere the last twice and he has an inferior profile on turf (from five starts on grass); others make greater appeal.

Three Chelmsford runs (all 6f) have yielded two wins and a third; 7f no issue, having won a Meydan handicap at the trip in January; two turf runs this summer haven't been his best but possible the return to this venue will pique his interest; stable also run Secret Moment.

Looks a better horse on AW than turf and he produced a good finish to win a 6f handicap at Wolverhampton five weeks ago; fully effective at 7f and Harry Davies' claim helps offset the 3lb rise; unexposed in cheekpieces; should have a good run in him; stable also run Open Mind.

Having his first start back in this country after three runs in Bahrain when sent off 13-8 favourite at Kempton (7f, Polytrack) last month, but could only manage fifth of the eight runners; 2lb lower than when beaten a neck at Chelmsford (7f, Polytrack) last August and would have a good chance if reverting to that sort of form.
