Form & Verdict

Went close at Catterick last month (6f, good to soft) but he couldn't back it up in a deeper race at York last time; won't mind the return to a quicker surface but suspicion there will be something stronger in the field.

Two 6f wins in Ireland, latterly when powering down the outside to win a Fairyhouse handicap by a wide-margin in June; hammered by the handicapper for that and he ran at least as well when third at Limerick later that month; no show over 5f on stable debut two weeks ago but better expected.

Conditions to suit and he bounced back to form with a come-from-behind success over C&D eight weeks ago; met plenty of trouble on that occasion and looks good value for the 3lb rise; won this race off the same mark 12 months ago; one of four runners for the stable; would be suited by a strong pace.

Maiden (0-14 all codes, 0-7 Flat); has shown a modest level of form in each of his last three starts (6f-1m, turf), falling sharply in the weights as a result; tough to consider even though this is just his second AW appearance.

Form & Verdict

Flourished at a low level at Ayr this summer, completing a hat-trick on slow ground (6f) last month; came up short in her bid for a four-timer last time and now 2lb higher; has run well over C&D on fast ground in the past.
