Form & Verdict

Not entirely disgraced at Carlisle (1m1f) and Chester (1m6f) since having wind surgery; sole success came over C&D (soft; narrowly off 1lb lower) in July and the return to this scenario looks a plus.

Form & Verdict

Record of 2-5 for current yard, the wins gained over 1m2f at Beverley (soft/good to firm); may still have more to offer in middle-distance handicaps, despite a dip in his form last time; remains of interest.

Has won two juvenile events here, the latest in January (1m7f, soft) when 4-9 favourite Teorie pulled too hard and was below-par in fourth; well-beaten sixth in a Listed race here last time (1m7f, soft) and plenty to find with Balboa on that form.

Dual Flat scorer at a modest level; didn't take to cheekpieces here (well behind Union Flag) on hurdles debut; followed that, however, with two C&D wins (soft) with usual blinkers reapplied, latterly making the early running and rallying past Union Flag, before holding off Churchwarden by 1l; improving but this race will demand better still.

J: Sam James

T: Grant Tuer

Made it 4-5 in handicaps on turf this season when seeing off five rivals over 1m2f at Newmarket three weeks ago; that was his first attempt over this trip and a 4lb rise is unlikely to prevent him making a bold bid if proving as effective on AW.

Visor has helped, bar one blip at Yarrmouth, and won a weak handicap easily off 7lb lower over C&D 17 days ago; backed that up off his revised mark last Tuesday, despite pulling hard, but could maybe have done without the recent dry spell.

Form & Verdict

Ex-Irish 3yo who outran his 125-1 odds with an encouraging effort at Carlisle (1m1f) on debut for new stable; bred to be suited by this longer distance but opening mark doesn't look particularly generous.
