Form & Verdict

1-1 on the AW and 0-8 on turf (well held sole start on soft) but beaten only half a length at Goodwood (1m, good to firm) on penultimate start and he would probably have won with a clear passage; that has to be weighed against a disappointing show at Newbury (7f, good to firm) 11 days later.

J: Daniel Muscutt

Two runs on AW have yielded a win and a close third; heavy defeat when last seen is easily excused on account of soft ground; has an absence to contend with but he's tried in a hood for the first time and remains with untapped potential on Polytrack.

Sole turf win came at Windsor (1m, good) in July; best effort since when a strong-finishing third at Lingfield (1m, AW) last month; just not guaranteed to back up that effort, as he lacks consistency.

Form & Verdict

After three attempts (latest this April) he is still not proven on softer than good; won on good last June and did so comfortably at Bath (1m, firm) on last two starts, making all on first occasion and coming from the back on latest; it was just a four-runner race last time but he interrupted a winning spree by the runner-up and 4lb rise may underestimate him; big player if he goes on the ground.

Fourth of ten in maiden at Newbury (1m, soft) in April looked promising considering how badly he swerved to his left leaving the stalls; although not so marked, that behaviour at the start has been repeated on both outings since and he's made backward steps, the latest in a 6f handicap debut; gelded since; bit too early to forget that Newbury promise.

Gelded prior to his latest start and he showed improved form in finishing third of 14 in a 0-75 at Windsor (1m, good; favourite); didn't enjoy the cleanest run through on that occasion and he's open to further progress; one to take seriously.

Sole win (14 races) was over 1m for Eve Johnson Houghton last September off a 1lb higher mark; seemed to be on his way back on penultimate outing and losing a shoe might help to explain a disappointing show when co-favourite 11 days ago; unraced on softer than good.
