Won over 5f, 6f and 7f on good to firm/good ground last summer and could plausibly have more improvement to come this year; two defeats on soft/heavy this year can be excused and he's one to be interested in back on a sound surface.

Won over 5f (AW) and 7f (good) for previous yard; has made a solid start for Alan Brown and was up in the van throughout when second in first-time cheekpieces at Catterick (soft); Class 4s are more ambitious than usual but has each-way claims.

Some way off the front pair on his handicap debut last month before running to a similar level on Tapeta last time; however, wears a first-time visor and two of his siblings won for headgear first going on, which is a possible angle in.

Seven-race maiden; has shown glimpses of ability, namely when fourth in a first-time visor at Musselburgh (7f, good) on penultimate start; it is possible that he found his next run at Ripon coming a shade too soon; blinkers are now the headgear of choice from this falling mark.

Handicapper quick to ease off and she ran much her best race for this yard last time; that came in first-time blinkers on the AW (won her novice last summer on Polytrack) and she'll need to improve somewhat on her previous turf work.

Has shown best form when racing handily and was likely unsuited by being unable to adopt those tactics at Newcastle (6f, AW) last week; possibilities off current mark if this pans out better with headgear reapplied.

Form & Verdict

Drawn away from the action in a race not run to suit when second on Tapeta early in the month; none of his turf efforts have been as good, though, with him often blowing the start and/or pulling hard, and he'll need to settle better back up from 6f.

A maiden after ten runs but has not been with Rebecca Menzies long and showed the benefit of a wind op when second at Newcastle (7f, AW) last month; his tendency to race too freely is a nagging concern on this return to 1m but he still makes strong appeal in an uncompetitive race.

0-9 with his best effort when a close second here (6f) for Tim Easterby last August; pulled too hard when fancied for his stable debut after six months off over C&D in February, since when he has undergone wind surgery; tongue-tie given a go and interesting to see if his backers return; yard also runs Angel Amadea.
