Form & Verdict

0-9 for Keith Dalgleish but he got off the mark at the second attempt for Lucinda Russell when winning over C&D last month (good to firm); near-miss off this mark at Ayr nine days ago and he could well have more to give; effective on good to soft but suitability of slower still to be confirmed.

Has won two juvenile events here, the latest in January (1m7f, soft) when 4-9 favourite Teorie pulled too hard and was below-par in fourth; well-beaten sixth in a Listed race here last time (1m7f, soft) and plenty to find with Balboa on that form.

Dual Flat scorer at a modest level; didn't take to cheekpieces here (well behind Union Flag) on hurdles debut; followed that, however, with two C&D wins (soft) with usual blinkers reapplied, latterly making the early running and rallying past Union Flag, before holding off Churchwarden by 1l; improving but this race will demand better still.

Produced a strong finish to win a 1m1f handicap at Carlisle last month (good) and he's run at least as well in defeat twice since, more recently here 11 days ago (visored for the first time); should stay this far but ability to handle slower than good has to be taken on trust.

His one win from 22 starts came over C&D but in a small-field event; he's now 8lb below that winning mark and a recent run on turf should have sharpened him up; should give a good account.

C&D winner for Alan King as a 2yo; off the mark for this yard with a narrow success over 9.5f here last week, getting to the front easily enough but having to work hard close home; 5lb penalty to contend with for that short-head success but he's still more likely to give his running than many.
