Back in the groove in recent weeks, winning 6f handicaps at Thirsk and Carlisle either side of seconds here (5f) and Redcar; not the only pace influence in this field though and might help set it up for a closer.

On a losing run but he was second over C&D in both December and January; 3lb lower today and the one time he's been ridden by Hollie Doyle he ran out the well-backed winner of a big-field handicap at Thirsk; can go well.

Form & Verdict

Promising start for this yard at Doncaster in June and he shouldn't be judged too harshly on his two runs since, floundering on soft ground at Nottingham and then badly hampered against the stands' rail when trying to make some ground at Southwell three weeks ago; could do with breaking more smartly but he should appreciate having a good pace to run at and he's interesting.

Went close at Southwell (6f, Tapeta) last month and caught the eye of the stewards when fourth (behind three of these) over C&D 13 days ago; that took his record to 0-23, though, so he wouldn't be certain to fare any better this time.

His first two runs for this yard were encouraging enough but he's not landed a blow in two runs over 6f since cheekpieces went on; continues to drop in the weights and he should get a strong pace to run at here; still looks vulnerable for win purposes though.
