In good form this summer, winning at Musselburgh (7f, good) last month and running well at Doncaster 12 days ago when he had to wait for a gap as the winner enjoyed a smooth run through; clear of the third on that occasion and raised just 1lb; promise in one AW run here last season (1m).

Best effort this year when swooping late to win a Racing League event at Southwell (7f, AW) three weeks ago; does not look overburdened with a 5lb rise and Amie Waugh's claim helps offset that anyway; yet to show his form at 6f but this stiff track should suit and he's capable of another big run.

7f novice winner in April (good to soft) and he's been placed in two of his four handicap runs since (all 1m); encouragement for AW on pedigree but hard pressed to say he is far enough ahead of his mark for a race like this.

Just one win from eight starts but he bounced back with a close third at Pontefract (1m, good to soft) 12 days ago; raised his form to a new level with that bold bid and he's a key player if he can back that up off the same mark; cheekpieces added.

Form & Verdict

Six-time turf winner in Ireland and he's gone close in 7f handicaps at Leopardstown on his last two starts, more recently last week when beaten a short head by a stablemate who enjoyed a clearer passage; 0-4 on AW but his two runs at Dundalk this season have seen him record RPRs of 90 and 88); he's well handicapped on that and on the recent form, with Billy Loughnane taking off a further 3lb; major player.
