Form & Verdict

Pulled hard and was said to have become unbalanced round Epsom last time; is starting to look exposed now and, while Morgan Cole has plenty of experience for 5lb in this company, today's undulating course would be a slight niggle.

Consistent veteran who's done most racing in sprints but gets away with this trip; not much wiggle room off this mark and Oliver Searle taking off 5lb will help but he could face competition up front from Macs Dilemma.

Multiple winner, the latest of them at Chelmsford (7f) last month; runner-up at Southwell (6f) next time and not beaten far despite only finishing sixth at Southwell 17 days ago (winner and third have won since); has four course wins on his record and he's likely to make another bold bid.

6f wins, including for the Charlton yard last spring, came from the front, but he was ridden more patiently when offering more in first-time cheekpieces (retained) last time; that gave something to build on dropped 2lb.

Two good runs in Class 6 company at Chepstow in the summer, getting off the mark at the 14th attempt in August; bled from the nose when disappointing at that track in September; sold for 5,000gns in November and just the type that Mick Appleby will find races for; betting instructive.
