Form & Verdict

Has improved plenty since handicapping, getting off the mark by nearly 5l at Ascot (1m4f, good to soft) last Friday; has a good chance of staying the longer trip on breeding and 6lb penalty is unlikely to stop him if he's in the same form.

Has improved with every start and bids for a hat-trick after wins in a Kempton novice (1m3f, AW) in June and a Doncaster handicap under Hayley Turner (16.5f, good to firm) last month; had only a neck to spare last time and now 3lb higher, but there's no reason to believe her progress has halted and she is sure to stay.

2m for handicap debut in July, which she won from Temporize at Doncaster, and three placed efforts (one on heavy) were followed by her C&D Trial win (good) from Sheishybrid three weeks ago; held up and travelled up smoothly to challenge in the latter, so there's potential alongside her stiffer task off this 6lb higher mark (4lb out of the handicap); considered.

Straight up to 2m for handicap debut in July, which she won, and she's since shown improved form with placed efforts over 1m6f/2m, closing to within a neck at Gooodwood last time; up another 2lb but looks the type to make further progress and 2m2f is probably within reach.

0-5 but twice runner-up, including on handicap debut at Doncaster (1m4f, soft) in April; his last of four in first-time blinkers (now removed) over C&D (good to soft) the following month can be excused as he lost all chance at the start when getting his head over the next stall; gelded since and could play a part if ready to go after 78 days off.

No great shakes on the Flat; has raised his profile over hurdles (1-6) and been holding his own behind useful opposition, getting to within 3l of An Bradan Feasa (off level weights) over 2m1f here on soft ground in December and about 5l behind Liari at Musselburgh (reversing placings with his Cheltenham conqueror); he's by no means tilting at windmills, but likely to find a few too good when it matters.

Progressive in five starts and, well backed, he did it well when off the mark at Newbury (1m5f, good; first-time tongue-tie) last month; extra furlong not a problem on breeding and he looks the type to carry on improving; respected from 5lb higher.

Made a successful nursery debut at Kempton (1m3f, AW; first-time cheekpieces) late last year and his fourth of 12 at Newbury (1m4f, good) 12 days ago was a fair effort, but he hasn't always looked the easiest; others are more convincing.

Got back on the scoresheet at Newmarket (1m4f, good to firm) in August; backed that up with a close call on soft ground at Doncaster and he had an excuse in a valuable 1m6f handicap in his final run in the autumn; still unexposed on AW and he looks interesting back at this trip on his return.
