Form & Verdict

Showed clear promise at Dundalk (6f/7f, AW) late last year but he ended his time in Ireland with a heavy defeat in a Cork maiden (6f, soft/heavy) in May; has been gelded ahead of stable debut and they've found a weak race.

J: Mark Winn

T: David O’Meara

Won his first three starts on turf (7f, good) after joining this yard in the summer, but disappointing when last of five at Newmarket (7f, good) in September; ran well a couple of times on the Dundalk Polytrack for his previous yard, but he needs to put that latest effort behind him.

Form & Verdict

Well beaten over 1m2f and 8.6f before showing improved form on the drop back to 7f at Salisbury (soft) where beaten by one who ran well in France the time before; the most likely answer to this.

Runner-up in a Salisbury novice (7f, soft) and a Musselburgh maiden last July (7f, good); hasn't run as well since, the first on handicap debut over 1m and the last three on the AW; cheekpieces tried again (poor run over 1m on turf last time they were on); on a fair mark now.

Seven-race maiden; unable to land a telling blow on either start since return from break in January but kept on steadily to finish in midfield at Newcastle last time and is another 3lb lower here; worth a second look.

Won a maiden here (7f) last October but that was a good opportunity and he's not threatened back in two handicaps since; may have needed the run at Newcastle on his return last month but he needs to find more progress at this new trip; hood reapplied.

Maiden; has run well at about 7f (turf) and 1m (Polytrack) for new yard of late but lacked the pace to challenge over a bare 7f at Chelmsford recently; acts on Tapeta elsewhere and return to 1m should help; first-time hood added to refitted blinkers; thereabouts.

0-16 overall but still early days for him with his shrewd new yard; over 4l ahead of the stumbling Coral Reef at Ffos Las last month, and his Lingfield third since (1m) was an equal best form effort on synthetics.

Showed good speed before weakening into a near 5l fifth at Newcastle (7f AW); mixed messages as to the strength of that form but it was a fairly promising start.

J: William Carson

T: Michael Madgwick

Made quite an encouraging debut for his new yard at Lingfield (7f) four weeks ago, making a big move in the penultimate furlong (sub 11s sectional) when being tight to the far rail may not have been optimal; dropped 1lb for his troubles and still has time to do better.
