Form & Verdict

Big step forward when dead-heating in a Yarmouth handicap (5f, good to soft; well backed) in July; things haven't gone to script in two runs since but he shouldn't be judged harshly on his latest effort (0-70) when messed around on the bend and forced to challenge extremely wide; big player back down in class.

Form & Verdict

Three 5f wins for the yard last season; 0-8 in 2023 but he's been running respectably and he would have finished closer at Newcastle on Monday but for running into a dead end as he was building up a head of steam; more appealing than many.

Form & Verdict

Won twice over C&D in the summer of 2020 but he hasn't added to those wins since; runner-up twice on AW earlier in the year (after wind surgery) and a recent Catterick run (wide draw) should have sharpened him up; he's a possible reviver.

One of the success stories of the winter, reeling off a five-timer here (5f-7f) in January and February; winning spree came to an end when second past the post (subsequently demoted to third having bumped Pockley) but it was still a sound run and he's one to consider.

Not at his best over 6f last time but he had been threatening over this trip beforehand; this the lowest mark he's ever run off and his rider's claim helps too; should make a bold bid.
