Form & Verdict

Seven wins at up to 1m4f in a productive 2022 campaign; he's edged down the weights this year but he's been competitive in recent starts, most recently a second of seven at Ripon four weeks ago; returning to AW won't hurt but he does have to prove his stamina for this trip.

Got back on the scoresheet over C&D (Class 4) last July but he's not really gone on from that and has been well held in his three runs this year; has dipped back below his last winning mark but he's not easy to predict and others are preferred.

Not at his best on his second start back from a break at Wolverhampton (1m6f, Tapeta) nine days ago, but mainly consistent and is 1lb lower than when runner-up over C&D last September; not dismissed entirely.

Wide-margin winner here (1m4f) on his handicap debut one year ago; he has cost his supporters dear since and he finished behind two of today's rivals at Southwell five weeks ago; step up to 2m could give him a lift.

Both career wins on Polytrack by over 4l, the first here and the second at Chelmsford last month; perhaps unsuited by bigger field and reportedly ran flat when finishing last in race won by Solution latest; cheekpieces could help him to bounce back.

Made all to win a 1m4f handicap at Kempton in April; big personal best when running away with a 2m handicap at Kempton three weeks ago, drawing clear in the straight (performance backed up by the clock); up in grade this time and a 7lb rise takes him into new territory in terms of handicapping.

Career-best effort to win a 1m4f handicap at Southwell in May; not quite so good twice since and he has work to do with Bit Harsh on latest Southwell run; change of headgear today.

Progressing well in AW handicaps, winning three times last winter and returning from a break to finish a close third at Southwell five weeks ago (1m4f); stepping up in distance could prompt further progress; major player.

Completed an AW hat-trick last winter, the last leg here (1m4f) in February; ran well the next twice but seemed to find 2m stretching him at Lingfield (Polytrack) last month; still 5lb above his last winning mark, but this intermediate trip may suit so he makes the shortlist.

Completed hat-trick in cheekpieces (one dead-heat; 1m2f/1m4f) and improved form in defeat when upped to 13.3f last time (third); seems to like gaps between his races and he's a big runner.

Three 2m wins on AW this spring; ran creditably at Chelmsford last time but he'll need to pull out more to come out on top in this higher grade.
