Form & Verdict

It wasn't all plain sailing and he was only a neck in front at the line but his handicap/seasonal debut at Yarmouth (11.4f, good to firm) in June duly brought marked improvement to win; brother to a 2m winner, so he should stay, but he was pretty disappointing over 1m6f at Sandown (good) 15 days after that reappearance; big shout if that latest run can be forgiven.

3yo who made it 3-5 in handicaps when making all at Beverley (2m, good to firm) last Thursday; 2lb well in under a penalty for that clearcut win and he's a major player again, particularly if the ground dries out; his wins have come on good/good to firm and he's struggled in two runs on soft.

Improved since switching to handicaps, winning at Yarmouth (1m3.5f) and Bath (1m6f), but arguably isn't entirely straightforward, which does temper confidence for first attempt at 2m (bred to stay); soft ground was a possible excuse last time, so no surprise if he does have a say.

2-7 over hurdles, both wins last summer over 2m2f at Stratford; 0-16 on the Flat and only three of those starts have been on turf but he's usually been thereabouts in his AW Flat handicaps.

Seven AW wins at up to 1m5f and beaten a head by Ray's The One on latest outing (1m6f); has also won on turf, here in 2020, but soundly beaten in his only three appearances on turf since and needs to prove he can carry over his AW form to this surface.

Won at Yarmouth (1m6f) in May and solid placed efforts over 2m on her three starts since, the latest at this track; they were on fast ground, which is most unlikely to prevail today, but she was competitive on good to soft and soft earlier in her career; has to be considered.

Two Flat wins for another yard, at 1m1f (good to soft) and 1m6f (good to firm); also showed some promise in two hurdles for Alice Haynes but left that yard for 6,500gns and, having raced freely, she dropped out on recent handicap debut at Taunton (2m3f, soft); this shorter trip looks a good move but would prefer drier ground.

0-10 and unproven at the trip but she kept on well for fourth over 1m5f at Bath (good to soft) in August and did likewise there (11.6f, good to firm) most recently; the cheekpieces adopted last time are now left off; this step back up in trip could prompt some improvement and she's one to consider.

Below best on final hurdles start (April, debut for new stable) and was having first Flat run since 2021 when tailed off at Goodwood (2m, heavy; 40-1) in May; that testing ground was not ideal but he has plenty of questions to answer at present.
