Form & Verdict

Promising second of six in a Pontefract novice (1m2f, good to soft) last October (form worked out well), but he hasn't built on it in four starts since returning including in this headgear combination at Yarmouth (1m6f, good to soft) four weeks ago; possible he didn't stay, but others are more solid.

Now 9lb lower than when a close third here (2m, good) in May, but beaten a very long way in three of his four starts since and now 0-16; hard to recommend at present.

Form & Verdict

Has improved for the fitting of a visor and made it tenth-time lucky in emphatic fashion at Ripon (1m4f, good to soft) ten days ago; 7lb higher and may not want the ground to dry out too much, but he remains open to further progress and is still a major player in this field.

Visor has helped, bar one blip at Yarrmouth, and won a weak handicap easily off 7lb lower over C&D 17 days ago; backed that up off his revised mark last Tuesday, despite pulling hard, but could maybe have done without the recent dry spell.

Fair fourth of seven at Ayr (1m5f, good) 12 days ago, but this slightly shorter trip suits her better (2-4 over C&D) and she's back off the same mark as when winning at Carlisle (1m3f, good) in June; leading claims.

Off the mark at the 25th attempt with an emphatic win here (1m6f) three weeks ago; only sixth of 11 under a penalty at Southwell but she didn't get the breaks in that race and is still unexposed as a stayer; now steps up to 2m and she has possibilities.
