Had wind/gelding operations prior to Doncaster reappearance win (1m4f, good to firm) in June, then ran respectably at Royal Ascot; ran a shocker at the Newmarket July festival, however, so there are mixed messages.

Can make the running; scored at Chester in May and best form when runner-up at Redcar and Ripon, all over about 1m2f on good; fair third of five at Newmarket (good to firm) eight days ago; 1m4f is not sure to suit but he needs some respect.

Form & Verdict

Four wins on AW last winter and better than ever back on turf this season, including a second at York (1m4f, good to firm) and win at Chester (1m3f, soft); another good run at Windsor latest and this step back up in trip may well suit; should again be highly competitive.

Form & Verdict

All nine turf starts have been on good to firm; very solid in handicaps, progressive too and he won twice this June; never nearer when finishing close up at Windsor latest, as he was over C&D in June; could still be capable of better and should be bang there if the ground is suitable.

Won on fast ground at Ripon (1m2f) and Lingfield (11.6f) in June and he ran into a major improver when fourth in a Class 2 event at Beverley last time; probably still has some margin for error off this mark but he's not ruled out on this drop back in grade.

Form & Verdict

Form has dipped in recent outings, which sees him on his lowest mark for over three years but the cheekpieces weren't an obvious benefit when he first tried them eight days ago; withdrawn on the last two occasions he was due to race on good to firm.

Last win was off a 21lb higher mark over 1m6f at Doncaster (heavy) in October 2022; mixed results last season during a marked overall decline, but it's easy to make a case on some form in the autumn and he's run respectably in both starts this year; not ruled out back up in trip.

Last win was off a 20lb higher mark over 1m6f at Doncaster (heavy) in October 2022; mixed results last season during a marked overall form decline, but it's easy to make a case even on form shown last autumn and he made a respectable reappearance 12 days ago; considered each-way.

Form & Verdict

Creditable return in the Northumberland Plate at Newcastle (2m, AW) but led over 2f out to over 1f out, so perhaps needed the race or did not stay; remote finish on heavy at Goodwood (1m6f; first run on softer than good) and disappointing favourite at Sandown (1m6f, good); raced too freely in the latter, so perhaps this return to 1m4f should see him given another chance.
