Form & Verdict

A fairly useful 5f/6f winner at his best but he ended 2022 under a cloud for Michael Dods; back from 11 months off for his new yard now but he has won off an absence before so can't be ruled out.

BHA-rated 100 at one stage; off for a year before returning to action with an impressive success at Thirsk in September (stable debut); a shade disappointing at York next time but he bounced back with a bang with a cosy success here in November (2-2 on AW, both over C&D); this is a better race but a 3lb rise isn't excessive and a promising apprentice's claim is handy; not discounted.

Returned from the thick end of a year on the sidelines with an impressive display at Thirsk in September, capitalising on some help from the handicapper; no excuses when eighth at York last month but this represents a less-demanding assignment and he won his novice over C&D, albeit back in April 2019; high on the list.

Veteran who ended a long losing run with a comfortable C&D win in a Racing League handicap in September; that came off a 5lb higher mark and he's run well enough on occasions since to think he retains a good chunk of ability; he'll need a good pace to aim at but he's a danger to all dropping into a Class 5 handicap for the first time.

Won this race 12 months ago off a 4lb lower mark, switched to the far side and making most of the running; added another two wins later in the summer but his form dipped in the autumn, albeit in some warm races; hasn't had the benefit of a run this year but won fresh in 2022 and he'll have the option to make a beeline for the far rail from stall 1; wouldn't read too much into his two defeats on heavy ground (late in the year and over 7f); claims.

Sole win in 16 starts came at Catterick (6f, good to firm; first-time cheekpieces) in July last year; 2lb lower than when beaten a nose at Newcastle (6f, Tapeta) a year ago, but well held the last twice which raises doubts despite the drop in grade.
