Form & Verdict

Bang there in three 7f novice events (two on good to soft) and improved when winning a 14-runner race at Sandown (1m, good) in May on handicap debut; raised 5lb today and settling him was an issue in that win but there's enough stamina and class in his pedigree for this trip to make appeal nevertheless.

Won at Sandown (1m, good) on handicap debut in May and comfortably followed up at Newbury (1m2f, good to soft) last month; he's 10lb higher than last time and in a hotter race today, but the form has been franked by the runner-up and it remains to be seen where this 3yo's limitations lie; he's run well here and has been well backed for this race; firmly in calculations.

Improved again to run away with a 1m handicap at Doncaster (good to soft) in May on reappearance; back-to-form second of four at Yarmouth (1m, good to firm) last time and this new trip might be within reach; it needs to spark renewed improvement, though.

Going the right way, and a handicap win at Doncaster (1m2f) last month was a career best; however, he's up significantly in grade here and will need another jolt of improvement to follow up; the Doncaster run was his first encounter with soft ground, so the more rain that falls, the better.

Wore cheepkpieces on last two starts, always prominent when winning at Ascot (1m2f) on first occasion; slowly into his stride and had to come from last at Glorious Goodwood (1m3f, again good to soft; unraced on slower) 15 days ago, which wasn't ideal and finishing fourth of 12 was good in the circumstances; same mark today and should go well.

Beaten two heads at Kempton (1m, AW) in April on debut, finishing strongly; perhaps found good to firm ground against him next time and his never-nearer second to Tony Montana in C&D novice (good) last month was better; still learning in those races and should prove capable of better, which is needed.

Has had three 1m races at Newmarket; useful form straightaway and won his first two starts, before coming up well short (but showing similar form) in a Listed race last month; gelded since; needs to improve on this handicap debut, also now tongue tied, but his pedigree suggests this extra distance will be a big help and his wins also looked promising.
