Form & Verdict

Ran well on the AW on a few occasions in the spring, including winning a 0-50 classified event over C&D; not quite so good on turf in last three starts and drawn widest, but claims if the return here sparks a resurgence.

Four wins here and although 4lb higher than last success in October, that form has been franked by runner-up and fourth; up 4lb but goes without usual cheekpieces for reappearance run.

Three course wins this year, beating Monaadhil into second twice in a week in August (7f and 1m); below par at Southwell four weeks ago but the return to this track could see him resume his progress.

Form & Verdict

Three of his six wins have come over C&D, the latest in April on his return from six months off; out of the frame in his last three starts including back here, but the drop back into 0-55 company is very much in his favour; major player.

Effective elsewhere but this track really plays to his strengths, winning for the fourth time over C&D when powering clear three weeks ago; didn't get a clear run through one week later but still looked in top form; more appealing than most in here.

Seven-race maiden whose best effort was when beaten less than 2l into fourth of eight on reappearance/handicap debut at Lingfield (7f, Polytrack) in April, but nothing like that form in three starts since; headgear worn the last twice now removed but she has plenty to prove.

Out of the frame in eight starts and tailed off in two outings on turf, both of them here including over 1m6f (good to firm) eight days ago; big drop back in trip and application of a tongue-tie will need to make a major difference; stable appears to hold a much better chance with Arlo's Sunshine.
