Form & Verdict

Runner-up to an impressive winner in maiden at Sandown (7f, good; unraced on softer) in June; couldn't crack it at the fourth attempt when making the running over 6f at Salisbury (good to firm) 12 days later but he's narrowly the form pick in this field and has some experience of this track from his second outing.

Entitled to win a C&D novice (on soft; made all) in August and it was always going to be tough for him in a very deep nursery at York's Ebor meeting (form working out very well); on a challenging mark but should be a factor.

Made his experience count when making all in 7f Epsom novice (soft) three weeks ago; the runner-up gave that form a boost when scoring with something to spare at Ripon last weekend; stall 18 might not be ideal, though.

Out of a middle-distance winner; duly proved suited by the step up to 1m2f at Windsor (good; handicap debut) most recently, beating Spaceport and Monterosa; raised just 3lb and may well build on that success.

J: George Downing

T: Eve Johnson Houghton

Went close at Epsom (7f, soft; 14-1) in a race that worked out well and perhaps unsuited by the fast ground when a little below that level at Leicester; this surface should be fine, as will the step up to 1m; strong contender.

Form & Verdict

Bred for middle distances; 33-1 for maiden at Sandown (7f, good; Rednblue Sovereign second) in June when never-dangerous seventh of nine after a very awkward start; there was plenty of promise in that and he rallied well when fourth of 11 at Ascot (7f, good to soft) one month later, but he still needs to step up a gear.

Promise on soft on debut and improved to win from the front in a six-runner C&D maiden (good to soft) four weeks ago; probably needs better again as he gives at least 7lb all round but he wasn't seriously challenged last time, so it may be possible.
