Form & Verdict

Has mixed record in his eight starts but he won by 4l at Redcar in May and bounced back with a fair third in another 7f handicap at Doncaster (good) 16 days ago; 1lb lower on this return to Tapeta and he has each-way claims again.

Form & Verdict

All five runs have been over this trip and best form has come on the AW, including a Chelmsford maiden win in December; no joy on turf in last two runs but he wasn't beaten far at Yarmouth last time and he still has potential; could be dangerous back in this sphere.

Won a 5f Wolverhampton maiden (Tapeta) in March and he's run some good races in handicaps since, including a fourth of 17 at Newmarket (7f, good) in April and a close fourth at Windsor (5f, good to firm) last time; still unexposed at this trip and he's respected back on AW.

Form & Verdict

Has had only one run on AW and that resulted in a win at Southwell last autumn; runner-up in three 6f handicaps in May/June and she got back on the scoresheet on her step up to 7f at Catterick (good) last Wednesday; has a penalty but she hit a personal best with that comfortable success and is a big player again back on Tapeta.

Down the field at big prices in four turf runs for his new yard this season but he has a record of 5-11 on AW and looks well treated if he ran recapture the form of his emphatic win at Lingfield (7f) in January; one to keep an eye on back in this sphere.

Sole turf effort, when best of the rest behind an easy winner here (1m, soft), a cut above his four AW runs; his two handicap efforts since have been poor, though, and stamina isn't assured on pedigree; market useful.
