Form & Verdict

Her first win at the 23rd attempt when well backed over C&D two weeks ago (first run in just a tongue-tie); mostly consistent and a 3lb rise is by no means the end of the world.

Triple Flat winner at 1m3f and 1m2f in 2023, including on heavy; looked as if she might make a go of it over hurdles when fourth of nine finishers at Wincanton (1m7f, good to soft) on Boxing Day, but is another for whom handicaps look more likely.

Two wins in the first half of the year, one of them here, and he's been placed three times since returning to action in August; not at his best in two runs over this far but he ought to stay and he's a contender dropping back into a Class 6.
