Form & Verdict

Always behind when 80-1 for his handicap debut but led on post at Brighton (good to firm) next time and followed up in clearcut fashion at Newbury (good) 13 days ago, all three races over 1m2f; up another 7lb but there was plenty to like about the style of that latest win from off the pace.

Completed a four-timer for Tony Carroll last summer including a win over C&D, but went quiet in his last two starts; makes his debut for his new yard (same owners) after seven months off and his record suggests the run may be needed.

Superb run in turf handicaps, winning first four at up to 1m3f after reappearance; however, it came to an abrupt end at Ascot recently and needs to prove himself back on AW (well held in two qualifying runs).

Narrow winner at Haydock in April and close second here in May, both in 1m handicaps on good; backward steps in his two outings since, both on good to firm; there's stamina on the dam's side, so he's worth a go at this trip despite one of those failures having been at 1m1f.

His only win in 15 races came on handicap debut at Haydock last April; he's well treated judged on placed efforts over 1m2f/1m3f last summer but was way below form on latest five outings, always behind over 1m in his three this term; the return to 1m2f offers hope.

Went close at Brighton (1m, soft) in one of his 2yo starts and won a Southwell maiden (1m, AW) in March on reappearance; flopped when favourite on handicap debut at Musselburgh (1m, good to soft) in April and has since been gelded; mixed messages but has to be considered.

Scored comfortably at Newbury (1m, soft) in April on debut; has failed to live up to that in two 1m2f races (novice and handicap) on good ground, which sees cheekpieces go on today.

Unable to win in these colours on the Flat but there was plenty of promise, notably when third in a 1m4f handicap at Salisbury (RPR 83); seems to go on most ground and should make a hurdler; cheekpieces sported of late are left off.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark on handicap debut at Windsor (good to firm) one month ago when upped to 1m2f, admittedly in just a three-runner race but he did it easily; up 8lb but it's hard to pinpoint just how good he is and it would not be a surprise if he still proves well handicapped.
