Fair maiden who ran creditably for minor honours in three of his four handicaps; seen mostly at 1m4f but one of those creditable runs came in a four-runner AW race over 2m; recent cheekpieces are replaced by blinkers.

Stayed well on the Flat when with Ed Bethell, though plied his trade at an ordinary level; ended up tailed off on hurdling debut at Fakenham and he looks up against it.

Fair Flat handicapper for Ed Bethell, winning over 1m6f at Catterick in August when blinkered for the first time; no headgear and may eventually need further but an interesting newcomer.

C&D winner in 2021, with no win since April 2022 but a string of minor honours this summer, including at this track on four of his last five starts; unlikely to be far away.

Form & Verdict

Addition of blinkers (tried cheekpieces once) saw him off the mark when coming clear in a handicap at Nottingham last month; creditable third of six at Yarmouth (again 1m6f on good) three weeks ago, so he's one to consider.

Sole win in 21 starts came over 1m6f on turf, but he has finished runner-up in both starts since returned to the AW and looked unlucky not to win when beaten a neck over 2m here a fortnight ago; up another 1lb but still a major player.

12th start overall and only her second on turf when off the mark in a nine-runner handicap at Lingfield (11.6f, soft) one month ago, delivering a late challenge from the back; back up 3lb but this new, longer trip could be interesting.

Finished strongly to lead close home at Lingfield (11.6f, soft) in July and is now only 1lb above that mark but her subsequent form has been underwhelming and she's not one to rely upon.
