Form & Verdict

0-5 in Ireland; scored at first attempt for new yard, making all in clearcut style when 11-10 in a five-runner maiden at Musselburgh (7f, good) last month; that's improved form and he looks capable of better still.

J: Mark Winn

Won his first three starts on turf (7f, good) after joining this yard in the summer, but disappointing when last of five at Newmarket (7f, good) in September; ran well a couple of times on the Dundalk Polytrack for his previous yard, but he needs to put that latest effort behind him.

Similar type to August, being 0-8; absent since October; has some placed form over 7f on turf, peak effort when close second in Chester handicap (7f Class 5) on penultimate start; has a fighting chance provided she takes well to Tapeta.

Won a Pontefract novice (6f, good to firm) last July; 0-8 in handicaps since, with a fast-finishing third of ten at Chester last month giving renewed hope but he was not so hot at Doncaster 12 days later (both 6f on soft); 7f looks worth a go but he needs to be at his peak.

7f wins at Redcar and Wolverhampton this summer and he's only 2lb higher than for the latter win today; not at his best at Thirsk six weeks ago, however, and likely to need a good pace to aim at now reverting to 6f

Form & Verdict

Won debut at Southwell (6f, AW) in April; well below that form in his three starts since, including two 5f handicaps; saddle slipped in the latest; off since May, there's a rethink on his trip and these are relatively early days, but others currently look more solid propositions.
