Form & Verdict

Hooded both starts, finishing fourth of 12 on his Kempton debut (7f, Polytrack) last month and third of six at Newmarket (1m, good) 17 days later (fourth has won since); the slightly stiffer test should suit on breeding and he looks the one to beat, especially given his sire's 26% strike-rate here in the past five seasons.

Won at Wolverhampton (8.6f, AW) in July on his third start and solid second in Sandown handicap (1m, soft) next time; again ran well when third at Yarmouth (1m2f, good to soft) two weeks ago on his first outing since being gelded, when coming from further back than the front two; retains potential.

Progressive; followed up his easy 8.5f Wolverhampton novice win with a second on his handicap debut at Sandown (1m) 48 days ago; gelded since and very much one to be interested in now stepping up in trip.

20-1 but showed promise when third of 11 on his Lingfield debut (1m, Polytrack) in February, racing handily throughout; that form is not strong despite a couple of winners coming out of that race, but he still demands respect in this field.

Placed in novice/maiden events in his first three starts and he kicked off his handicap career with a strong-finishing win at Chepstow (1m2f, good) last month; up 5lb but he's open to more progress at this new trip and is a big player back on AW.

0-4, most recently down the field in 7f handicap at this course; seemed to show some promise over C&D in July and is bred to do better yet, being a half-sister to a winner for her owners.

Triple-figure prices for three runs to date, pulling hard a couple of times despite the hood; is a half-sister to a three-time Tapeta winner and this is easier but would want to see good support back from two months off before considering her.

Form & Verdict

Showed ability in four starts on Polytrack late last year (hooded each time), especially when twice third at Kempton (7f/1m); more exposed than his rivals and returns from seven months off, but still rates a contender.
