Form & Verdict

All starts over 6f, landing Thirsk maiden (heavy) in May and running well to finish third in slightly stronger handicaps (soft) the last twice; latest effort looks even better now with the first two successful since and he shapes as though 7f should suit; respected on ground he likes.

Two wins last year, the latter off 1lb lower at Carlisle (7f, good to soft) in September; made low-key reappearance on AW last month but, after only ten runs, he remains open to further progress this season.

Two wins at Musselburgh (7f, good/good to soft) in August last year and made a winning return there (7f, good) in May, but nothing like the same form in four starts since; 2lb below his last winning mark, but this looks a tough task against the 3yos.

Three of his five wins have come here, the latest over this trip (good) 13 days ago; 3lb higher mark manageable and his liking for this venue a positive, but testing conditions would pose a question (ran poorly in one start on ground softer than good).

Five wins over 6f/7f on good/good to firm for Jim Goldie last season; well beaten at Musselburgh on reappearance (1m, good to soft) but likely to come on for the run; has run well on good to soft, but this trip a concern; first run for new yard.

Had a fruitful campaign in 2023, winning five times over 6f/7f (on good/firmer); last couple of efforts suggest this return to 1m is worth exploring; not ruled out.

Has had 18 starts already, winning three times over 6f; seems best on ground on the soft side of good and he has run well over this far, but remains 5lb above his last winning mark and looks vulnerable to less exposed rivals.

Narrow win at Hamilton (6f, good to soft) in July and went very close at Nottingham (6f, heavy) next time; this is more competitive but this 3yo is not ruled out each-way now back down in distance, having run well before fading over 7f at Carlisle last Wednesday.

Dual turf winner in Ireland in August/September 2022 and was winning for the first time since when successful over C&D three weeks ago; 5lb higher, but the third and fourth from that race have won since and he is even better drawn here than he was then; high on list.

Both wins have been on turf (7f) but he's unexposed on AW and did well to finish third over 1m at Newcastle (second run after wind op) last Saturday, after taking a strong hold; this drop back in trip is a positive and he's in the mix.
