Form & Verdict

Won twice over this trip at Chepstow last season; on a roll this summer, winning three sprint handicaps on good or faster; caught out by the drop to 5f at Salisbury two weeks ago but still looks feasibly weighted and could take some catching from her handy draw.

Has gone well first time out before but she's getting on and resumes above her highest winning mark after a successful 2023; all victories have come on turf and she might need some help from the handicapper now.

Won two sprint handicaps on AW in the second half of 2022; running okay this time around and he's slipping down the weights but he does have something to prove over 7f.

Won a 7f AW handicap in January on her second run for Brett Johnson; tough going afterwards but she did return to form with a good third over 7f at Brighton last month (led); even that form needs bettering today.

One of his two C&D wins came in this race in 2021 off a 3lb higher mark; good start to this campaign, finishing second at Lingfield (1m, AW) before winning a Class 4 at Brighton (7f, good) in April; less good twice since but a revival wouldn't be a major surprise back at this track.

Three wins, on good or slower, and the last two have come off this mark; tailed off at Bath on his seasonal return though and it's easy to have reservations for now.

Wins at Chepstow (1m, good to soft) and Brighton (7f, good to firm) this summer; came up short in amateurs event at Sandown on his hat-trick bid last week but still ran creditably; not discounted in a race lacking depth.

Seemingly boosted by first-time cheekpieces when winning at Windsor (1m, heavy) in October, and ended last season with another good run on heavy ground; resumes on a fairly tough mark, though, and may not be seen to quite the same effect on the quicker surface here.
