9 yo Gelding

Form & Verdict

Runner-up four times this season (twice over C&D) and he's a major player on that form; not ruled out but this 9yo has to perform better than he's managed on his last three starts.

Form & Verdict

Inconsistent but came from the rear to win at Redcar (1m, good) in June and didn't run badly here (1m1f, good) last time; this hold-up horse might not be far away if getting a strong pace to aim at.

0-19 but he went very close over C&D (good to firm) last month and was a creditable third at Ayr (1m, soft) next time; went off too fast at Ayr last time and he could play a leading role today.

Still seeking his first win (0-20) but has been placed in three of his last four starts, including when a beaten favourite - third to today's rival Chinese Spirit - at Musselburgh (1m) last week; previous Carlisle form figures read 23, and he'll surely strike eventually; a possible.

Struggled in low-grade Flat handicaps (1m-1m6f) last summer, and hasn't raced over hurdles (0-4) since pulling up in a 3m maiden here (80-1) in May 2022; highly unlikely to be the solution.
