Form & Verdict

Shaped better than bare result at the York Ebor festival (1m2f) but ended up finishing last of 14, so there are mixed feelings; not solid on overall 2023 evidence and needs to recapture his 3yo best.

No win since 2021; retains a useful level of ability aged ten and was fourth in the Ebor two starts ago; consistent record at Ayr includes a second-place finish in 1m2f Listed race at this meeting in 2022; could go well back here.

11yo who is winless since 2021 and was tailed off on last month's comeback at Doncaster; it's hard to be confident on the back of that but he may have needed the run and he's on a handy mark on last year's best efforts.

Generally disappointing since bagging a good prize here (8.5f, good to firm) on Oaks day in June but is 1lb below that mark now and took good step back in right direction when fourth at Ayr (1m2f, good to soft) ten days ago; can't be ruled out.

Successful in a maiden here in September 2022; went close in this race (good; off 5lb lower) last year then won at Nottingham (soft) and finished fifth in the November Handicap (heavy); interesting back at Ayr on belated seasonal debut, especially if the market speaks positively.
