Form & Verdict

Arrived on the scene late to win over C&D (good) in May and he repeated the dose over 1m at this track last month; held in his hat-trick bid here last time but he ran into a major improver in that tactical race and still looks on a workable mark; dangerous back up in trip.

3yo who made it 3-5 in handicaps when scoring under Billy Loughnane at Brighton (1m2f; cheekpieces added) last week; has a penalty in this deeper race but he really kicked again with that emphatic success last time and is open to more progress; all of his four turf runs have been on good to firm.

Longstanding maiden (0-21) but she's been placed in four of her last five starts including a close second over C&D (good) on her penultimate run; remains feasibly treated and she should go well again back on turf; headgear returns, including a first-time tongue-tie.
