Form & Verdict

Can go left under pressure but speedy and improving at 5f; did well at the weights when going down narrowly to well-handicapped rival at Hamilton in June (good to soft; winner and third won since) and gained a straightforward win at Haydock since (good to firm); up 5lb but can do better yet.

Has proved ultra-consistent since returning in April (record 332421134) and did well to finish fourth of 12 at Haydock (5f, good) a fortnight ago having lost a shoe; likely to give his running once again and one for the shortlist.

The type his trainer does so well with and he's firmly on the upgrade now, winning over C&D and at Goodwood before an excellent third at York 17 days ago (5.5f, good to firm), doing best of those to race in the stand-side group; should be more in the locker and he's a strong contender.

Can lead; three wins already this year, over 6f (soft and good to firm) and 5f (good to firm); no further improvement once his mark went into the 80s (albeit finishing lame 13 days ago) and others likely to be better treated now; has been tongue tied, first-time visor today.

Went very close in all three 5f handicaps for Richard Fahey, on turf (good to firm) and AW; now 3lb higher than the latest of them in July, however, and while he can surely find a race he'll do well to make it this one; first-time blinkers replace visor on debut for new yard.

In line with so many from his yard he's done well this winter, overcoming a bad draw at Lingfield (5f) and producing a strong finish to land a 6f handicap back at Lingfield last month; ran well in one C&D run as a 2yo; up in the weights but has always threatened to be useful.

Looks smart on his day and although he can be the architect of his own downfall, he didn't do too much wrong at Wolverhampton 13 days ago, simply unable to peg back a winner who got first run; has won over 6f but his last 13 starts have been at 5f; too much talent to ignore at this level and he's 1-1 at Lingfield.

Progressive at 5f since cheekpieces fitted, winning at Windsor (good) and although no threat to Jm Jungle at Haydock two starts ago he did better when only just losing out at Yarmouth last week (good to soft; Thunder Moor third); due 2lb rise in future but this race asks for more.

Three runs for George Boughey this year, running his best race when a close third of 11 at Yarmouth in week one of the Racing League (5f, good to soft); slower ground may not have suited at Goodwood two weeks ago and he should be seen to better effect back down in class in any case; Billy Loughnane booked; potentially tricky draw.

Straightforward opening when winning his only AW run last summer (2-11f); looked very good when winning a Haydock nursery in September and he's only 2lb higher today; well short of that level twice this year but those runs have been in better races than this; a danger to all if back to the Haydock level.
