Form & Verdict

Made a promising start for Kevin Ryan when runner-up at Salisbury (7f, soft) in September 2021, but only seen three times over 1m/1m3f since, regressing each time; makes his debut for his new yard having changed hands for £16,000 in May and the market may indicate what is expected.

Has an excellent record on soft/heavy; went down by half a length to Look Back Smiling in the Spring Mile at Doncaster and had that reopposing rival a place behind him when third in another useful handcap at Leicester last weekend; any easing of the ground in his favour.

Form & Verdict

Losing run up to 21 but has proved consistent since returning in April and looked unlucky not to go closer when fifth of nine here (6f, good) last month; return to 7f no problem (five of his seven wins have come over it) and a major player provided the ground remains on the soft side.

Successful return from 166 days off when winning by a neck (first two clear) at Redcar (7f, good) last month; still open to improvement but the form hasn't really worked out and a 6lb rise looks more than enough.

Off the mark with 7f win on seasonal debut at Redcar (good) in June, after a break, and placed off today's mark over that trip at Ayr (soft) last month; not sure to benefit from today's drop back in trip but, after only seven runs, he's not yet fully exposed.

Did well as 2yo, winning twice (7f/1m) and finishing second twice in first four starts; not got going this year, though, and cheekpieces need to halt the slide; stable looks to have stronger candidates elsewhere.

1lb below his last winning mark and there have been encouraging signs in five starts since joining this yard, as when fourth of ten at Thirsk (7f, soft; just behind Devilwala) last month; does need a good pace to aim at though (can take a hold) and best form on good/good to firm ground.

Not as good as he was when landing the 2019 Silver Cup here and seven of eight wins have come over 6f, but he scored over 7f at Haydock (good to soft) last summer and has finished third in both starts over C&D; 1lb below his last winning mark and could go well; stable also runs Devilwala.

Won back-to-back handicaps last autumn and back to form on his second start since returning when chasing home a subsequent winner at Doncaster (7f, soft) in May; only 1lb higher and one to consider on return from a short break provided the ground remains on the soft side; stable runs three.

Dual C&D winner, the latest from 4lb lower in May, and has run with credit in a couple of stronger races since then; made all for each of his three wins and with few other established trailblazers in the field, he could go well if gaining an uncontested lead.

Some promise in three starts for Joseph O'Brien but shown little in five starts (Flat/hurdles) for this yard, including when going off far too quickly in this headgear combination in a Wetherby novice (7f, good to soft) in April; plenty to prove back in a handicap after ten weeks off.

Doesn't always look the easiest but all three wins have come here, the latest over this trip (good to soft) last September; only beaten a neck over C&D (good to firm) last month, but the form hasn't really worked out and he is up another 2lb; may find a few too good.

Raced exclusively over C&D last season, making the frame on four of his six appearances; recovered from slow start and coped surprisingly well with drop to 5f when third on recent reappearance outing; still on a workable mark; likely contender again.
