All four wins have come over 5f on good/good to firm ground; has a solid record at Sandown and went down only narrowly after a slow start when third of 14 over C&D two weeks ago; should be in the thick of things again.

Form & Verdict

Several good runs here, including when fourth in this 12 months ago off 10lb higher; most encouraging run for a while when beaten a neck at Bath two weeks ago after meeting trouble; hasn't won for nearly two years but this looks a reasonable opportunity and he's likely to finish fast and late.

Over two years since his only win but he has run with credit in defeat this season, bumping into a couple of well-handicapped sorts at Haydock 11 days ago (6f, good; tongue-tied first time); 2lb lower today and shouldn't be underestimated.

0-9 since his winning 2yo debut, but he made a pleasing return when third of eight in the first-time hood here (5f, good to soft) ten days ago; has dropped another 1lb in the meantime, but a concern that he hasn't shone in three previous attempts at this trip.

Blew his mark early with wide-margin handicap debut win as 2yo but despite that he had useful turf form in 2023; in the thick of it on Tapeta elsewhere and Polytrack of late; no reason why he shouldn't handle this track on first attempt and likely to be bang there.

Ascot maiden winner (6f, good to firm) as a 2yo; handicaps haven't really gone to plan but he wasn't beaten far in a Racing League event at Windsor last week, leading under 2f out, and it's just possible that this first attempt at 5f will suit; could make his presence felt.
