Form & Verdict

Better known on AW and 0-10 on turf but refitting cheekpieces (has won in them) seemed to help when runner-up at Ripon recently (1m2f, good); should be placed to advantage off his current mark at some stage.

Three of his six wins have come here (1m3f/1m4f) and was running consistently well up until January, but quiet in his last three starts; just 1lb above his last winning mark, but he needs a resurgence with cheekpieces reapplied.

Without an AW win since February 2021 (1m3f here; on Fibresand) but he has had C&D placings and did score on turf last September; solid sequence came to an end on penultimate start but latest wasn't too bad and he now has a switch from recent cheekpieces to blinkers.

Said to have been unsuited by good to soft ground when well adrift last time out but had previously been aided by the return to 1m2f when quite a cosy winner of a minor Yarmouth event (good to firm); deserves another chance to show the latest form was all wrong.

Form & Verdict

Has won on good and soft; some creditable efforts at about this trip earlier in the season and although his latest run 16 days ago wasn't one of them he is back on his latest winning mark, and refitting cheekpieces (both wins in them) for the first time this year is a plus; considered.

Maiden with work to do on most of his turf handicap form but he only just failed to overcome difficulties against an unexposed one over 1m2f on Chelmsford AW 12 days ago (pair clear) which suggests he can find a race before long; unfortunate to be raised 5lb, though.

Has shown promise on several occasions but was last of seven when favourite over C&D on his latest start which took his overall record to 0-17; perhaps he made his challenge too soon that day and he certainly can't be ruled out, but he's proving expensive to follow.

Front-runner who has won three of his four 1m2f starts at Windsor this year (soft and good to firm), the latest doggedly from a subsequent winner; on a career-high mark but acts well here, too, 2-3 over C&D, and another career-best is on the cards.
