Form & Verdict

Acts on good to soft, unraced on worse; latest of his four wins came over C&D in May 2022 off today's mark; reappearance third here in May looked a positive signal but he failed to fire when favourite back at this track one week later; perhaps that run came too soon; big player if it's forgiven.

Won five in a row over 1m4f from November 2021 to March 2022, the last of those wins on turf (good; well beaten on softer); mostly ran with credit afterwards, including once at 1m2f, but tailed off last August and not seen since; has a competitive mark if he returns on song.

Getting no help from the assessor but his consistency is admirable; has made the frame in last 11 races, mostly on AW; close second at Windsor (11.5f, good) last month returned to turf; again appears likely to go well.

Without a win since April 2022 but has made the frame nine consecutive times, including to Ocean Heights over C&D in December; went down by only a neck at Wolverhampton on latest start three weeks ago and he's likely to be in the thick of things yet again.

Form & Verdict

Won five of 12 starts for this yard; below form on last two outings but they were over 1m4f and he's a player back at 1m2f if the ground is okay, having been below form in his three attempts on softer than good.

Seems best on good or firmer; had wind surgery in March and her reappearance run (1m2f) was better than her last two outings (1m4f) so she's considered back at 1m2f today with blinkers replacing her usual cheekpieces.

Sole win (15 races) was in July 2022; two seconds at Brighton this May give him a shout but below form on last two outings (wore cheekpieces last three) and this is his first attempt at 1m2f, which he's not bred for.

Won at Meydan in February 2020 but his last success in Britain was way back in October 2018; seen over this far only once, in February 2019; way down the weights and he was a close fifth on penultimate start but he does not look the percentage call.
