Won over C&D and at Ripon (1m2f) last summer and he's been generally consistent since; was beaten less than 2l when fourth in a similar race here last time and he's respected back from a short break.

Form & Verdict

Won twice for Tracy Waggott in May (both 1m on good ground) and took a step forward on his stable debut at Yarmouth 18 days ago, readily seeing off his six rivals (1m, good to soft); stamina has to be taken on trust (strong at the finish last time) but he still has some potential upside.

Best not to dwell on recent AW defeats and to concentrate instead on him having won three of his last four 1m starts on turf, quite emphatically over C&D in August last time (good to soft; earlier wins on good); now 1lb lower than the latter and primed for a revival.

Form & Verdict

Lower rated on turf and took advantage when landing a 0-50 classified event over 1m2f at Ayr last week, more easily than the winning margin suggests; more on his plate back in a handicap but he was producing RPRs in the low 80s on AW less than a year ago and the ability is there.
