Form & Verdict

Has only run over 7f to date but shapes as though he'll be fine at this trip from stall 3, especially if able to lead as he did here in better company last time; a 2lb drop in the weights won't hurt either.

Still has low mileage and his two wins have come on slow ground; near miss at Newmarket off 2lb lower last summer; gelded since last seen; more to come this year and should make his mark at this level.

Any rain would suit back on turf, having finished well held from a wide stall (AW) on his return from a wind operation (wore first-time tongue-tie) a month ago; is some way down the pecking order though.

Suited by ground softer than good; both wins came as a 2yo in 2022 but he's run well to finish placed at Thirsk and Haydock (both at 6f on soft) in the last of his three runs this season; remains well treated on his best form and he's on the shortlist.

Can hang left under pressure; returned to win the 6f handicap on this card 12 months ago (soft); even better later in the season when second to both Looking For Lynda and Vintage Clarets in big-field 5f handicaps at York before bagging one there in October; below best in his last run but that's forgiven; might well have more to offer as a 4yo.

Won a Newcastle novice (5f, AW) on his stable debut in February and he's run several good races since including when a close fourth in a Beverley handicap (5f) last time; didn't get much luck there and looks interesting back up in trip; last run was on good to firm but he's versatile ground-wise.

Another good step forward on her comeback in the spring, easily making it 2-2 on Tapeta off a 10lb lower mark against her own sex; this is more competitive but she looks to have the most potential of these.

Took him 25 attempts to get off the mark and both wins have come on the AW (6f/7f) this year; twice placed on turf (6f, good to firm) in between, but is now 3lb higher so he will need to find a bit more to break his turf duck at the 23rd attempt.
