Form & Verdict

Two Huntingdon outings in the spring and finished third in the second of them, in April; that form has yet to be tested but it's likely to be good enough to give him claims if he's ready after the break.

Bumper winner last September and showed ability on the AW when second of nine behind a 66-1 shot here (1m3f) in December; not so good when fourth of nine at Kempton (1m3f, Polytrack) last time and a line though the winner gives him a bit to find with Caustic.

Ability in first two starts and easily beat four rivals over C&D 15 days ago; worth of that form is hard to quantify but she is clearly improving and must be considered as she attempts to follow up under a penalty.

Form & Verdict

Winner of a maiden point in May (2m4f, narrow leader when two market rivals fell at the final fence); plenty of stamina in the pedigree but still of interest on bumper debut, having joined a yard that does well in these races here (5-17 in last five years).
