Has stepped up on his juvenile form since going up in trip this term, going close at Ffos Las (1m4f, good; raced prominently) and then raising the bar slightly at Windsor (11.5f, good) latest, despite being beaten at odds-on; up 1lb and returns to this surface with stamina to prove over this far.

J: David Egan

Won at Wolverhampton (1m6f, AW) in July on second handicap start and solid runs the next twice; not ruled out but he needs to bounce back from a lesser run at Chelmsford (1m6f, AW); unproven on turf (albeit just one run).

5/1

OUR TIP

Form: 55/327 C

Last run: 18 days

W: 10st 4lb

7 yo Gelding

OR: 74

Form & Verdict

Isn't the easiest to weigh up, particularly as he's going beyond 1m4f for the first time (has won over hurdles); not totally ruled out if turf run 18 days ago, where he picked off a few rivals late, has sharpened him up.

Ran well over C&D one year ago (after 495 days off) and also went close at Lingfield last winter; not quite as persuasive subsequently but he's had a wind operation since last seen and is not discounted at this level.

Form & Verdict

Clear promise in second and third maiden runs and step up to 2m saw her beat four rivals with ease in handicap at Thirsk on Friday; this is a quick turnaround but easy to think 6lb penalty (she's 2lb well in) may not stop her.
