Form & Verdict

Best of his three 2yo runs came when second over C&D (good) last September; favourite for both handicaps this year, reappearing with fair fourth of 14 at Haydock (1m, good) before suffering an unlucky passage at Doncaster (1m, good); retains potential and could be firmly involved.

Sole 3yo in this contest and remains unexposed; raced only over 1m but dam's side suggests he'll stay 1m2f; made all for a comfortable success at Pontefract (good) most recently, opening his account at the sixth attempt and atoning for his bad fortune the time before; open to further improvement in handicaps and warrants respect up 4lb.

Well beaten on debut at Thirsk (1m, soft) in April but encouraging seventh at Nottingham (1m, good to firm) next time then runner-up at Windsor (1m, good to firm); makes handicap debut off a fair mark and this 3yo is in good hands to continue to progress; respected.

Made it 0-7 when well beaten in a match at Brighton last time and he's unproven on slow ground; however, showed some useful form previously (including C&D) and is entitled to respect for last year's winning yard.

Ended last season with poor AW run in November and ought to have been suited by the heavy ground when down the field on this month's reappearance outing; now has questions to answer but is well handicapped if the first-time cheekpieces prompt a return to form.

Form & Verdict

On a 14-race losing sequence and slow starts can be frustrating, but he but went very close at Doncaster (7f, good to firm) last month and was a good fourth there (1m, good) last time; also effective on slow ground and might not be far away provided he doesn't lose his race at the start.

Similar type to Overnight Oats, having gone down by only half a length in C&D contest (good) on latest outing; raced mainly in Class 5 and now goes back up in grade but having Epsom form is a major plus; likely to perform well again; one for the shortlist.
