Form & Verdict

Three solid efforts on fast ground since blowing out in the Brocklesby (heavy); sets the standard but more rain would be a worry, while he's landed the worst draw of all.

Series of good runs on AW since returning from a gelding operation in November, going down by a short-head over 7f here ten days ago; stamina for 1m has to be taken on trust.

Sole win (ten races) was a 5f novice at Chester last July; has run creditably this winter on all three starts (7f/6f, Tapeta) since gelded but those results also suggest he will again prove vulnerable to an improver.

Pulled hard on his 7f debut and takes another drop in trip today, tackling slow ground for the first time, having been turned over at a short price latest; is one of the likelier winners from a handy draw.

Never happy on fast ground last month and back in the groove over C&D last time, despite blowing the advantage of stall 1 with a slow start; holds leading claims from another handy draw if breaking better.

Fair soft-ground debut in May behind a useful winner; didn't improve on that on Polytrack last time but was buzzy to post and is likely capable of better; stall 8 won't help, though, and Desert Master is perhaps his yard's best chance.

Promising debut when third of 11 at Goodwood (6f, good) in May, but has twice disappointed since as when fifth of eight here (5f, soft) last month; bred to stay on the dam's side, but he needs to bounce back on nursery debut and has a wide draw.
