Form & Verdict

Carlisle disappointment last time (good to firm) to forgive, but effectiveness with cut proven off today's mark at Beverley and Ripon right before that, each over longer trips; 0-10 but among the most appealing.

Only win was at Catterick last September (7f, soft); caught on the line when beaten a nose at Doncaster last time (7f, soft); ran well over C&D last season; likely candidate.

Won a 7f handicap at Catterick (soft) last September; ran well in a Class 4 over C&D (heavy) on his final 3yo start and perhaps needed the run when down the field at Thirsk on his return 17 days ago; change of headgear this time; could go well.

3-11 in C&D handicaps at class 5 or lower; this month's 2l fourth here (soft) might have been better (if still not beating Liberty Breeze) but for needing to switch twice; still 2lb above any mark defied in two years.

Form & Verdict

In good heart even before his last-time Southwell 6f win, which was a new personal best form effort on his 53rd start (runner-up went in next time); winless at 7f-plus but has twice come close to rectifying that in 2023, and a 0-9 record off official marks above 55 is a greater concern.
