Form & Verdict

Delivered on promise shown on AW when beating three rivals on handicap/turf debut at Doncaster (1m, soft; first-time cheekpieces) in April and ran at least as well when keeping-on third at Newmarket (1m, good) the following month; absent since a lesser effort in June but may still have potential.

Has nearly 3l to find with Star Guest on their previous encounter (off level weights) and it was a weak-looking four-runner handicap in which she justified favouritism at Doncaster (1m, soft; first-time cheekpieces); some tail-swishing didn't go unnoticed and remains to be seen how she'll progress.

Won twice in the spring, latterly off today's mark at Bath (1m, good to soft), but suffered a significant dip in form afterwards and needs to have been refreshed by a two-month break; effective on ground ranging from good to heavy.

Yet to win this season and not seen for over two months but twice made the frame in higher-grade company in July (1m2f/8.3f) and is very versatile regarding ground; ought to make his presence felt.

His last three wins have come here (1m/1m2f, good to firm/good) and he ran pretty well when fourth of eight over C&D last Tuesday (soft; Ayr Poet a short head in front in third); drops back in grade today and could be in the mix if suited by the first-time visor (replacing usual cheekpieces).

Won quite comfortably at Carlisle (1m1f, good to firm) in June and gave another good account when third there (1m, good) last month but moves up from Class 6 today and the forecast rain is probably not in his favour.

Down the field here (7f) a fortnight ago but may have needed that first run since last October; he won twice over 1m1f on turf last year (in a visor then blinkers) and is not discounted now back up in distance and back in headgear (albeit cheekpieces haven't had a positive effect previously).

Form & Verdict

Needs to up his game after three underwhelming efforts but was placed in valuable Edinburgh Cup here (1m1f, good to firm) in June and went very close at Haydock (1m, good to firm) a week later; won't mind if the ground turns soft and will be very dangerous in this company if back on song.
