Form & Verdict

Wore cheekpieces on last five starts, grinding out a narrow win at Newbury (1m3f, good to firm) on second occasion; ridden by Olivia Tubb that day and on all starts since, following two creditable shows with a poor one back at Newbury (good to soft) 13 days ago; player if bouncing back.

Form & Verdict

Weak form in Ireland but he was off the mark at the first attempt for his new stable, getting up close home in eight-runner handicap at Lingfield (1m2f, soft) early this month; that was his only start for Brian Barr; up 2lb but may have turned a corner and have more to give.

Off the mark for this yard when coming from off the pace to beat Virtual Hug at Wolverhampton last month (1m6f); not quite so good when third back there two weeks ago; ran well on his only visit here; each-way shout.

Ridden with more restraint than sometimes the case when snapping a losing run over C&D three weeks ago, scoring by 2l from the reopposing Virtual Hug, who won here on Tuesday; a 4lb rise won't prevent another prominent showing if in similar form.

Last of his seven wins was in May 2022 off 1lb higher; below best this year but placed nevertheless at Newbury and Windsor on last two outings and he may be able to build on that; not proven on softer than good.

Placed a few times on turf in August; not at best in two outings at Windsor this autumn but has gained six of seven career wins on AW and he's well treated (second off 8lb higher over C&D last summer) if a return to artificial surface sparks him back to life.

Form & Verdict

Ended a lengthy losing run when scoring at Lingfield (1m4f, AW) last month and he followed up at Catterick (1m4f, good to soft; probably acts on good to firm) 23 days ago; the latter was by a short head but he battled well and is respected as an in-form candidate.

Ended losing sequence at Southwell (1m3f, AW) in February; tailed off three weeks ago but that was after 102 days off; carries risks but he's well treated judged on lots of his old 7f/1m form for Richard Fahey.

Reliable sort, beaten under 2l in his last four starts; those were over 1m1f/1m2f and the less convincing efforts on his four attempts at about 1m3f/1m4f are the stumbling block.

Not as good or consistent as he was but he won last month and, having been tailed off next time, he was a close fourth on latest start, with all three of those races over C&D; on the premises if it's another of his good days.
