Form & Verdict

Runner-up in Chester maiden (1m2f, soft) in May on third start then went very close on handicap debut at Pontefract (1m2f, good to soft), despite failing to settle; has had a second wind operation since last time; his pedigree provides optimism he will continue to improve; in calculations.

Improving son of Golden Horn who had a wind op before gaining a stylish breakthrough win in 1m2f Ayr handicap 25 days ago; he has more to offer, especially now his stamina is drawn out further; most interesting.

Useful pedigree and he has shown promise in two of his three starts, notably when second of eight at Chester last month (1m2f, soft; first run after a wind op); moves into handicaps with potential.

Won two novice races in May (AW/good to firm) and completed the hat-trick in convincing fashion over C&D (good to soft) three weeks ago; a 6lb rise could prove to be lenient for this unexposed 3yo.

Won on second start (8.6f, AW) then followed up in Lingfield novice (1m1f, good to firm) before completing the hat-trick in Ayr handicap (1m2f, good to soft); another good run when clear second of five behind an improving sort at Ayr (1m2f, soft) and he's a likely player in first-time cheekpieces.

Won at Wolverhampton (8.6f, AW) in May on her second start and followed up in Lingfield novice (1m1f, good to firm), making all each time; makes handicap debut off a fair mark and he's open to further improvement for last year's winning yard; firmly in calculations.

Form & Verdict

Down the field the last twice at big summer festivals; something to prove but this lightly raced 3yo showed considerable promise previously and drops back in grade here; stable's horses can bounce back to form out of the blue and he's not written off.

Acts on soft; the promise shown this spring, including at this track, has not been fulfilled but he did shape as if staying 1m4f at Thirsk on latest outing; that performance was the first suggestion that he might get 1m6f.

Not quite at best over C&D two starts ago and tailed off at York most recently, but that was over 2m; has run some good races this year, including a win at Hamilton last month, and not ruled out now back down in trip.

Resumed winning ways at Musselburgh (1m4f) in June and largely in good form since until beating only one at Ayr (1m2f) 11 days ago; this drop to 1m isn't certain to suit and she's 3lb out of the handicap too.

Useful for Mark Johnston in 2020/21, winning twice including a 1m4f York handicap; not so good since and was a well-beaten fourth when switched to hurdling here in his final run last year; on dangerous mark back in this sphere but has quite a lot to prove after 273 days off.

Quite useful for Mark Johnston on the Flat in 2020/21, winning twice including a 1m4f York handicap; not so good since and was a well-beaten fourth in a fair C&D novice on hurdles debut last month (good to soft; 14l behind runner-up Maughold Head); a bit to find.
