Form & Verdict

In good form this season, barring one excusable failure on soft ground; kept on for very respectable third behind Yaaser over C&D (good) last month and is now only 2lb higher than when making all at Ayr (7f, good to firm) in May; respected.

Best effort this year when swooping late to win a Racing League event at Southwell (7f, AW) three weeks ago; does not look overburdened with a 5lb rise and Amie Waugh's claim helps offset that anyway; yet to show his form at 6f but this stiff track should suit and he's capable of another big run.

Form & Verdict

Showed some very useful form when trained by Charles Hills but has been very disappointing for new stable this year (five runs); may yet turn things around but finished last in first-time visor (retained) last month and it takes a leap of faith to support him here.

Showed useful form for previous yard; 0-11 for current stable but last few efforts, most recently going close off this mark at Leicester (7f) last week, suggest his turn is near; appears to have a leading chance (due to go up 3lb from tomorrow).

Capable of smart form when trained by Charles Hills; struggled initially for this yard but there was much more encouragement off his much-reduced mark at Ayr last week (1m, good to soft), keeping on strongly having met trouble in running; can't discount now he's found his level.
