Form & Verdict

Won at Salisbury (6f, good) in May and followed up at Goodwood (7f, good to firm); runner-up when unpenalised at Sandown (7f, good) last time and he's 6lb higher here, but this 3yo has a progressive profile and could still have more to offer; unproven on slow ground.

Three wins over 6f/7f on turf this year but he didn't appear to get home when fifth of ten at Windsor (1m, good to firm) last time; has run well on Tapeta and the return to this trip should suit on Polytrack debut after a short break, but he is drawn wider than ideal.

Suited by slow ground but has also shown promise on good going; runner-up at Brighton (7f, soft) last month then went one better at Epsom (7f, good to soft) three weeks ago when making virtually all; strong claims.

Tumbled down the weights and returned to his optimum conditions (7f, soft) he ran well at Brighton two weeks ago; that was a lowly Class 6 event though and he'll need vastly more to come out on top in this field.

Has been running well in 7f handicaps on turf and Polytrack since late July but not yet found the right race on the AW (0-10) and still has his share of weight; work to do from the outside stall.

Form & Verdict

0-12 and unable to threaten on his three starts this summer; unraced on slow ground; however, his reduced mark appeals on his good form in the spring and perhaps the first-time cheekpieces will give him a boost.

Won a maiden at Wolverhampton (7f, AW) in April and is very lightly raced on turf, but he's failed to shine on grass the last twice and needs to leave those performances behind if he's to win this.
