Form & Verdict

Has been successful in his last four attempts on Polytrack (1m2f-1m6f), but looked stretched by the trip when 6l behind First Emperor at Goodwood (2m, good) in May; has work to do to reverse the form on 4lb better terms and still has stamina to prove.

Just 1lb above his last winning mark and finished a close third in his only previous go on the AW at Lingfield (2m, Polytrack) last August; returning cheekpieces may help, but despite having run with credit over this far he may be better over shorter.

Useful stayer on the Flat; looks all about stamina over hurdles, having rallied to win a 2m4f maiden at Market Rasen (good to soft) and again doing his best work late to finish a well-held fourth on handicap debut at Sandown (2m4f); this longer trip should suit him well and he's in the mix.

The two wins from his four starts at Ayr were both more than two years ago, but he also ran creditably over C&D last September; downhill since his Musselburgh win this April, with the switch to a visor (replacing regular blinkers) perhaps contributing last time; reverts with headgear today and he's 4lb below his last winning mark.

Useful Flat horse who won a Class 2 handicap over 1m6f on soft at Doncaster in September (twice below that level since); beaten off 2lb higher on his handicap hurdle debut in February (good) but entitled to improve on that form under these conditions, especially on only his fourth run over hurdles; has won a novice; interesting.
